My buddies are blogging ...

Flash news: Check out http://vadivel.blogspot.com/ to know the latest tech news :)

Yesterday I messaged the above quote to few of my office buddies. Why? Just to inform them that I blog some tech stuff and those who are interested can drop by.
Also, summa oru suya vilambaram dhan :)


Only then i came to know from Srini that he has also started blogging recently. I was glad to know that. I immediately started going through his posts and there waited a pleasant surprise for me. I saw Vignesh and Prathiba name listed in his blogrolls.

Short note about them:

Srini -- I interviewed him a year back. At that time he was a fresher and I was impressed to know that he was having vague idea about VS 2005 and SQL Server 2005. Nice guy and the first impression I got about him is "he is willing to learn". Srini correct me if I am wrong :)

Vignesh -- I was one of the person to interview him. The day when this guy came for interview to DBS center in Nungambakkam .... I initially thought one another guy. But when he started answering we were really impressed. There was a point when myself, Raju (our then tech mgr) and another guy where throwing questions at him just to make him say "I am sorry, I don't know this". At last after a hour or so we succeeded in that mission :)

Prathiba -- If my memory is right I interviewed her also. I read few posts in her blog and they are really interesting. She has good writing skills. Keep it up prathiba.

I know the freshers who joined us last year are really sharp ppl. But I seriously didn't expect them to have writing skills as what they have showcased in their respective blogs. Great show guys. I have added you guys into my blogroll. Expecting lot (bit of technical blogging :) ) more from you all.

[Updated @ 12:46PM] -- It wouldn't be fair on my part if I didn't mention about Santhi. She is a pretty close friend of mine and one of the few level headed person i have met in life. I was really touched on seeing the "About me" section of her blog :)

One thing which I like as well as dislike in her is she never changes her mind after deciding something. For example, I have asked her many times in past 2+ yrs to "leave a space" after a period or a comma. She hasn't changed her habbit till now (you could check it for yourself in her About me section :)
