The unconference extravaganza is upon us. If you are a technology enthusiast in Bangalore then the coming week has lots in store for you. On Monday is our monthly MoMo event and on Staruday Barcamp Bangalore 2 kicks off! So lets set the ball rolling.

This month’s topic is Mobile TV: The Operator’s Perspective and our speaker is Mr. Krishna Durbha from Reliance. Mr Durbha has generously agreed to share his insights on Mobile TV in general and how its going to play out in India. If you want to cut through the hype and get the point of view which matters, its the place to be on Monday evening. The talk will be followed by a discussion and dinner, all sponsored by TCS.
