India Still an IT giant? Lifting Website data from Singapore.

Delhi Police has “lifted” website structure, data, content and even Images ūüė¶ from Singapore’s police website.

This news was first broken by NDTV on Saturday.

It is shame to see things like this happen, specially when the world considers India as a IT destination?

If they were desperate to get some simple HTML pages done with text and images, least they could have dropped me mail. Than doing this HOLY shit.

I guess it wouldnt be completely wrong to say that Delhi Police has done what Software Engineers in India do it on a daily basis.

Some of the “HOT”¬†quotes from Delhi Police website.

”With the increasing number of bombing incidents around the world, no country including Singapore can take safety for granted.”

And just in case there’s a biological attack and you get anthrax, there’s no need to panic.
The website says: In Singapore, the SCDF, Police, Ministry of Health and Singapore Post have taken precautionary measures to deal with this threat.

A Small Step : PayBack-August 07

Wishing everyone belated Happy Independence Day!!! Proud to be an Indian ūüôā

You must have never heard that a event happens first and then it gets a name <stuck>

Okay, so thats what we did yesterday, on the occasion of 60 years of freedom, we took a small step.

“In software industry, we are used to hear the word reusable stuff. Why not in real life?”

And, thats exactly what we did.

Goal: Collect all the old-reusable, not-so-bad condition clothes which are mostly redundant and distribute them among local people like coblers, fruit-sellers etc etc.

Why the name PayBack?

Its time for all of us to PayBack to Nation, be it in small steps.

Thanks a lot to Ram, Snigdha, Vinayak, Surpiy, Ayan, and Sudarshan for showing interest and willingness to make the difference.

It was great to see that young guns are interested in giving back to society in some or the other form.

We distributed the clothes in the CMH Road, Indiranagar area so if u happen to visit the place, and see a local guy wearing Arrow, Mango or Westside branded clothes, dont get shocked!!!! Instead Just say “PayBack Works”

Then the team went to blind school and distributed the ladies garments to the children there. I had to drop from there soon. So rest story may be Ram or Snigdha can narrate.

Local junta¬†was following us for more stuff, guess last time I saw people following was only politicians ūüôā

First Bangalore Blogger’s Meet!!!!

Bangalore Blogger’s Meet :

This is a nice step towards making a great blogger community in Bangalore. No wonder we have some of the most wonderful blogs coming from Bangalore. But isnt it a great idea to really meet the bloggers in person and share the knowledge???

It sure is. What you should do now is to quickly register Here 

Some bloggers focus on Lifestyle, Fashion, Technology, Journal, what such events help is to get all these folks under one roof.  Guess its true, digital world is shrinking!!!

After this Meet, the group plans to have a collective during BarCamp which is scheduled this month end.  [Ref]

PS: Yes, I guess Dhivya is right. But confusion was created coz Sanjukta’s blog¬†says its on 7th July and the PBWiki site says 21st.¬†What the Heck¬†is this now? Huh?

Technology Threats???

Have you even imagined that the benefits we are taking of Technology even the terrorist can take?

Imagine how dangerous it can be?

Cyber police says, it can trace the emails sent, scan them and then identify the anti-social elements.

Anti-Social #1[Place 1]: Writes the message in the email/blog and saves it without sending.

Anti-Social #2[Place 2]: Opens with same userID and Password, reads the same saved message and logs Off. 

What can the police do in such a situation?

This sure may sound, simple but trust me it can prove very costly and deadly as well.

Any thoughts??? views??? suggestions???
