I am delighted to let you know that Maqsood Bhai has generously offered his residence in Niketon, Gulshan to host the first ever Dhaka bloggers meet on the 4th of February, Saturday. What could be a better place? Most of you know Maqsood Bhai as the rock legend of Bangladesh (Feedback,Dhaka bands). As a person he is a wonderful companion and a great motivator. Don't miss the chance to meet the legend (also a blogger) in person. He also suggested arranging some music (if time permits).

I think we can the start the Adda a little early. We hope to start the event
by 4:30 PM. Please mail me at i_rezwan(at)hotmail.com to get the address and location of Maqsood Bhai's house. We are exploring the possibility of inviting the expat Bangladeshi bloggers to a MSN chat during the meet. Will keep you posted on this.

So far these bloggers have confirmed:

* Naser - Observing ambience
* Wamy - Moodlogic
* Nazzina - Framedland.com Photoblog
* Arild & Hasin - Somewhereinblog.net
* Shafi - Rajputro
* Ishtiaque - Notes From Dystopia
* Asif - Imtiaz's WeBlog

And the hosts me, Maqsood Bhai, Rifat and Subhan.

Kindly inform other bloggers you know and lets try to get a bigger crowd.

Another update:

I have created a group mailing list of the Bangladeshi Bloggers in Google

Here are the essentials:

* Group name: Bangladeshi Bloggers
* Group home page: http://groups.google.com/group/Bangladeshi-Bloggers
* Group email address: Bangladeshi-Bloggers@googlegroups.com

I have added the current mailing list to this group, which will be updated within 24-48 hours. Those who are left out please send me your emails.
