       Tirupur is a city of business. Well known for vests and briefs and textile companies. It is one among the TOP TEN exporters in India. But there is something missing here. It is TED and social media awareness. This is my part as a native of Tirupur to host a TEDx event and willing to introduce some best things ever. And as a first step I obtained the License from TED to host a TEDx event @ Tirupur. And here it is 
TEDxTirupur !!! Tirupur will experience TED soon !!!
So finally, to all those people, who doesn’t know what TED, TEDx is …???

       In short about TEDx, TEDx are the independently organized TED events. People apply and obtain license from TED to host an event and on TED’s license approval, they become the licensee of that particular TEDx event which is valid for 1 year. They may reapply for the next time too…
And such an independently organized event is TEDx Tirupur.

       This is my hard time ever I had in my life. There were situations that troubled me a lot, but nothing was to this extent. Those things made me to be away from the world of international network for few 10 days. I was not able to update any of my online stuffs. This blog, my personal website, and my other social media pages like Twitter and Facebook, etc ….. And this have affected me in a lot of ways both offline and online. I was very sad to read the mail from IndiBlogger.in regarding my new rank. Obviously my rank has come down due to my online absence and because of my long gap of 10 days. I was very sad and worried when i opened my mail box to see 600+ UNREAD emails these days, some of which were very very important to be answered. I lost some huge things. I express my guiltiness to all my readers and subscribers regarding my absence this last 10 days. And definitely i will do compensate my absence in a better way.

                 Awesome Awesome and Awesome. This is what i can say. The TEDxChennai curator Mr.Kiruba Shankar and team made the event mind blowing, magnificent, and a kick ass event. My 1st TEDx event to attend. And really gained an interest that is kindling me to be a organizer of such a TEDx. I had a chance to attend the event for free. Since i am the official blogger of the event. I am the TEDxChennai’s Official BloggerFor others 3000 was the ticket, but the speakers delivered a stuff that is all most equal to 10,000 bugs. Some people who attended the TEDxDelhi claimed that TedxChennai is better than the previous. Here is the proof.

And I am very happy that

        One of the most popular latest technologies that will be having a good scope in future is Windows Azure. It will be a better idea to start it now. When i was searching the internet to understand the Windows Azure better, i found the following…

     Windows Azure™ is a cloud services operating system that serves as the development, service hosting and service management environment for the Windows Azure platform. Windows Azure provides developers with on-demand compute and storage to host, scale, and manage web applications on the internet through Microsoft® datacenters.
      Windows Azure is a flexible platform that supports multiple languages and integrates with your existing on-premises environment. To build applications and services on Windows Azure, developers can use their existing Microsoft Visual Studio® expertise. In addition, Windows Azure supports popular standards, protocols and languages including SOAP, REST, XML, Java, PHP and Ruby. Windows Azure is now commercially available in 40 countries.
I surfed YouTube for a video related to this Azure and i found the below one,

This video gave me some clear idea about Windows Azure…. And I am interested in developing myself in this technology and friends, if you people have them or find them across the web, just share with me…

Cool Corners:

BIT these 2 DAYS:

      The 2 days, Bannari Amman Institute of Technology almost looked like an institution that actually contains the strength of 2 engineering colleges that had all the engineering disciplines…. Almost 6000 – 7000… Was amazed to look BIT in such a dress.

SHOPPING MALL by MBA:

       MBA studs have laid their own shopping mall in the incorridors of Cafeteria.  Everything they had. Sarees, Shoes and Slippers, TShirts, … And in eatables from south indian to different varieties of snacks that includes OOTY butter and pista cookies to Bon Bon ice creams.

BIT Futura Arena & Registration Committee:

       This time Futura started with a cool place called BIT Futura Arena. Most important thing to be noted in this is that the arena is the shape of OMEGA, which is the trademark logo of Bannari Amman Institute of Technology. And here all those participants who registered online came here and registered on the spot. The registration committee worked tirelessly. My Mr.Sadhan Kumar, one of the big shots of the Futura registration committee had no sleep for almost 3 days. Everyone was with a computer in front of them which is connected to a centralized MySql server. Looked like a big job. The team led by Mr.N.M.Saravana Kumar made it happen. And some stalls are surrounding these registration desks. They were the stalls of  eatables, Pizza Huts etc…

The rest of this article will be continued tomorrow by the same time. That is after the closing ceremony of the Futura 2010, An ISO 9001:2000 Certified National Level Technical Symposium & Project Design Contest. This article continues tomorrow by the same time. After the closing ceremony and the felicitation of Futura 2010…

       By a cool afternoon when i logged in to my mail box, i found a mail from Posterous,  a blogging platform. A cool one about this platform is that, posts will blogged through emails to a single email id, post@posterous.com . And the mail is nothing but about the attack they had for one week on their servers.  The Cofounder & CEO of Posterous Mr.Sachin Agarwal was gentle enough to apologize for the inconvenience that happened to all our users for the last one week. He has briefly mentioned about the attack that they faced on their servers. It is all about DENIAL OF SERVICE ATTACK !!! or DoS Attack … And when i googled about this particular attack, i found the following,

      

            A denial-of-service attack (DoS attack) or distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack or ) is an attempt to make a computer resource unavailable to its intended users. Although the means to carry out, motives for, and targets of a DoS attack may vary, it generally consists of the concerted efforts of a person or people to prevent an Internet siteservice from functioning efficiently or at all, temporarily or indefinitely. Perpetrators of DoS attacks typically target sites or services hosted on high-profile web servers such as banks, credit card payment gateways, and even root nameservers. The term is generally used with regards to computer networks, but is not limited to this field, for example, it is also used in reference to CPU resource management.

                   One common method of attack involves saturating the target (victim) machine with external communications requests, such that it cannot respond to legitimate traffic, or responds so slowly as to be rendered effectively unavailable. In general terms, DoS attacks are implemented by either forcing the targeted computer(s) to reset, or consuming its resources so that it can no longer provide its intended service or obstructing the communication media between the intended users and the victim so that they can no longer communicate adequately.

But after these six rocky days, Posterous is pretty confident to prove them 100% since they have moved thier data centre to a new place. Attacks are common nowadays. Either server attacks or desktop attack,  it is the responsibility of the owners to take care…

        One such chivalric dream is FUTURA. In its greatest incarnation ever, FUTURA 2010- The National Level Technical Symposium and Project Design Contest, the biggest convention of industrialists and academicians is held at Bannari Amman Institute of Technology, Sathyamangalam, Erode. Adding to the credit of the techno-fest, this year the event claims to be the first ISO 9001:2000 certified in India.

        Man in his path to conquer the realms of Technology has forgotten his harmony with Nature. FUTURA 2010 focuses primarily on bridging this gap by encompassing the theme “GO GREEN”. With prizes worth Rs.25 lakh and above, the convention offers a platform for the interaction of more than 4 lakh ignited minds and multifaceted industries through forums.

       FUTURA provides exceptional opportunities for study, research and involves students in interactive learning, experimentation, acquiring various skills and leadership qualities, ultimately enhancing their technical persona.
