The Dine-Up 2009

On the 9th of December 2009  Google and CIO Pakistan once again organized yet another amazing event, a Dine up with Dell where around 65 of the key blogger from Karachi were brought together under one roof to talk, discuss and play as silly as we want but only to address and discuss much saner and slightly more serious issues.

The event was held a few days ahead from the first anniversary of the first ever large scale bloggers meetup in Karachi, and although the event was announced almost only 48 hours before but like Farhan says in his blog, it is really hard to miss any event which CIO and Google organizes, so even on such short notice a lot (almost around 65) key bloggers showed up at the event. Also present at the event were Naveen Naqvi, poppy Agha and Sania Saeed.

At the event we discussed a lot of things including “take back the tech” campaign to the pros and cons of the new media revolution and how we can further benefit form the internet communication technology. The event also supported A noble cause for Thalassemia Awareness ( , all bloggers were urged to place a link or add a badge or ribbon to help and support the cause. You can find more details of the event at Farhan’s blog here

Such events help address the issues bloggers and people associated with the new media technology faces on a day to day basis and provide a platform to discuss and realize our responsibility and our role in reshaping and better representing our country in the world.

    By the time a girl has reached the status (read age) of a lady, she is hardly a dosheezah! unless you meant it in a very strict formal sense.

    @Balma jee…..I love to strictly disagree with you on this unless of course you have the infamous Baroness Lady Thatcher in mind….
    Iam sure you missed the article of the Unwritten british constitution on this….Some are born a lady,others achieve ladyship,if all fails they sleep with the royal highness and becomes a one.

    a very Happy Independence from pakistan and India and Blackwater to BANGLADESH.
