      Hi Jitendra,

      Amazing blog......I just wanted to give one small advice why don't we record the sessions and upload it on YouTube. so that some unlucky people like me can at-least view the video and virtually be a part of this or people can attend it on Google hangout live. Guys give a thought about it.

      Congrats to Suvonkar Bashak you are a rock star and you deserve to get a star for keeping the SIT lively.

      We had this idea in our mind before the event in fact but due to some problem we couldnt make it through. Maybe next time. Cheers.

      What a phenomenal initiative.  Great attendance, organization, topics, diversity. WOW.

      Do you think there would be interest in having a "Data Geek" type of activity on the Saturday after TechEd&&dcode on March 15th? There is a possibility that we can bring folks from "Doctors Without Borders" and I'd love to see if there was enough passion and interest in having a day to work with "Big Data" and Technology for Good.

      Thanks for sharing your amazing event, Jitendra Kansal
