We are just at the end of 2008 and here are the details of the last OCC meet of this year. It will be a generic meet (with some add ons thrown in) and at a new smart venue.

Helpline: 98454 08846 – Satish (OCC member who has thankfully got us this venue). Satish will be sending us the map as well. As I understand it is just one turn from the main 100 ft road and hence the place is central, with enough parking space.

Type of Meet: Generic Meet / Open discussion

a. We talk about ourselves and especially reflect on our learnings and events in the year 2008.

b. Encouraging many folks who have been missing from OCC for many months now to show up and share updates on their progress, etc.

Rajeev KumarRajeev Kumar has invited you to the event ‘Nationwide “Citizens’ Rally for CHANGE” on Saturday-27th December @ 5:30pm – (BLR – BRV Grounds on Cubbon Rd)’ on India Innovation Network!
 Please make it convenient to attend with your friends and also feel free to forward to your network. This event is happening in all major cities in India.

 Time: December 27, 2008 at 5:30pm
Location: curbon park
Organized By: R K Mishra and Change India Team
Event Description:
Change India, a citizens’ movement to make ‘Educated Civil Society’ count in matters of policy and polity, will organize a nationwide “Citizens’ Rally for Change” on Saturday, 27th December-2008 at 5:30pm.

In Bangalore, people will assemble at “BRV Jn Grounds on Cubbon Road” (adjoining Cricket Stadium) and walk up to Mahatma Gandhi Statue on MG Road. Please bring your banners/posters/tri-color.

The rally intends to raise some basic questions and make suggestions on national security to be followed by discussion in the Parliament. One of the suggestions is to institute an inquiry commission to investigate security and intelligence failure leading to 26/11 and suggest remedial measures which must be implemented in a time bound manner, similar to 9/11 commission report.

We are in the current situation because ‘Educated Civil Society’ has become politically irrelevant and has no say in matters of policy and polity. We show our anger by organizing rallies and protests but are mocked by politicians, as we can not sustain it due to lack of common platform and leadership.

Educated Civil Society should UNITE to bring a CHANGE. CHANGE will come only when we believe that we can ‘Make a Difference’.

We are aware of year end holiday season, but we request you to join the rally along with friends and colleagues, as we can not afford another 26/11.

Please sms START CHANGE to 575758 to register and get location of the rally in your city. Visit www.changeindia.in

PS: See attached note for more details on our suggestions and petition to the Parliament.

RK Misra

Jan 9th – Symposium on Cloud Computing, with presentations *by Google,
Yahoo, HP, Infosys, Rediff, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP Labs, University of
Monash*

include architectural challenges of migrating to a cloud, review of products
that use the Cloud, technical issues faced in realizing software delivered
from Clouds, the impact of Cloud computing on enterprises and how software
is deployed in enterprises and a review of the technology platforms
available to implement applications delivered from the Cloud. This tutorial
also covers business aspects such as emerging business models, the
opportunity for startups and others, and the total cost versus return from
Clouds. See the
details<http://headstart.in/2008/11/20/dr-prasad-ram-cto-google-to-deliver-keyno\
te-in-cloud-computing-symposium/
>here.
Jan 9th – Server virtualization, with presentations *by HP*

[10 am – 1 pm] Server virtualization is the buzz word in technology today.
This tutorial will give a brief overview of the partitioning and
virtualization technologies, and then cover in-depth the criteria for a
hardware to be virtualizable from the perspective of CPU, Memory and I/O,
and how early software techniques accomplished this. The tutorial will then
look at the hardware evolution in the CPU and Memory virtualization from
Intel and AMD and cover advances in I/O virtualization from chip vendors and
the PCI SIG. Finally, it will close with a brief look at future trends in
this space.
Jan 10th – Mobility, with presentations *by Honeywell*

[10 am – 1 pm] This tutorial will explore application areas and technologies
powering mobile devices that we use on our person such as mobile phones and
PDAs, at home, at work and otherwise. The application areas include
everything from mobile payment systems, transport and logistics, mobile
handhelds, home networks and industrial and building automation. The
tutorial will start with a talk on next generation mobile client platforms
followed by a survey of application areas and use cases which will then be
followed by a talk on technology infrastructure required to power mobility.
Jan 10th – Search and Social platforms, with presentations *by Yahoo, Google
and Infosys*

[3 pm – 6 pm] This tutorial does a survey of the state-of-art in search and
social network platforms and explores how social networks and search
platforms in the future may have to do with a lot with each other. For
example, in a search engine in the not too distant future, you may be able
to put in a query that requires results to be ranked by references from
people. Similarly, searching for people by not just interest areas but by
how influential they are in a particular area of interest should become
possible. All these use cases suggest that social graphs (exposed by social
networks) and link graphs (exposed by search engines) may be put to use
together to yield better search results and social features. See the
details<http://headstart.in/2008/12/13/learn-about-search-and-social-platforms-h\
