del.icio.us Entertainment and News !

Before you bookmark these url's i would suggest you look at

del.icio.us : its an online bookmark community, where you can share and view shared favorites . Google also released similar tool lately called as Google Notepad. So that way you will be able access ur bookmarks anywhere you go.

you can see few of my bookmarks here


Ok here are few URL's for watching movies, sitcoms and rest online.

musicnmovies : for hindi movies and sitcoms. you would need to register, sign-in and then reply to a post for the links to get un-hidden.

I foresee replacement of TV by IPTV (TV over IP) which is ought to become the next trend. These sites have quite a few episodes of good sitcoms, so now i could connect my laptop (IBM Thinkpad rocks) to TV thru S-video. You could buy them(s-video and audio cable) at radioshack.

Amazing video quality and ample of american sitcoms uploaded at peekvid and Guba

AOL has also joined the race.

TV channels have also started offering shows online at ABC , CBS ....

You could buy indian channels for viewing it online through streambox

I've been watching cricket highlights lately from Rajeev's blog. You will also find them at you-tube since that's the hosting server of Rajeev's videos.

On a side note : Samples of few cool indian Standup Comedy.




There is some great work being done by bunch of guys in bangalore with putting a site that plays Indian Rock 24x7 at Infinity. They also have a magazine on Indian Rock.

Create your own radio, pandora, excellent classification.


Next generation Slashdot would be digg, where people submit and digg tech+nerd news.

One more digg synonym - techdirt

An online news company with difference, Newsvine

Consolidation of Indian Newspapers, desicrossroads (should i say a new look to samachar) and watch out for taazza , to be released soon.

is Indian version of slashdot/digg.

That's a small collaboration of sites i have been using since past few months.

Hello Blog !

Here I go with my first Blog with an intent to archive the trend, the technology, the culture around today so as to sit back after 5 or 10 or 15 years down the line and analyze the evolution. I'm collecting this information because it has to some extent impressed me and also for my friends and others who failed to reach out before it even bursts off.

I see blogs being used as a media for gaining publicity for ones own interests or to create a second profession or even to kind of create news and rather avoid the news coming out with some masala. From my vision of blogs, I see that they are mainly a resource for archiving information that you may need down the line or things that might serve as remembrance in future. It's a technology that actually replaces, for a few, an emotional handle that people used in past to write down their present activities and feeling into a diary. It surely has revolutionized the way people talk and convey their thoughts and to certain extent it brings forward those writers who have never in dream thought about writing (very much like me). Not only that, it has actually shaken up the news portals and many other entertainment websites who are now running around to get this blog thingy hooked up into their website so as to catch up with the trend. Surely, i consider this technology as an earthquake of magnitude 10.0. So friends keep blogging !

Well, as a famous African saying goes, All can never be said ! I wish to write back sooner than you want me to, but I can't cos I work for living and I need to find time to blog at work....:)
