Moved to Silicon Valley

I have a request for feedback from users of this blog:

After 14 yrs in Boston, building Internet groups for large companies and my own startup Coola, I have embarked on a new entrepreneurial exercise - I decided to pretend I am a kid out of school and just packed up and moved to Bay Area.

I plan to blog my exploration of silicon valley here.

In Boston, Boston Computer Society welcomed me and offered me a chance to start the Web Group in 1996. I write the Startup Diary Column for India New England, I network and meet so many friends at several groups, I am a Venture Mentor at MIT.

Everything seems larger and crowded in order of magnitude in the valley.

The exercise to find my place here seems very much like when I started Coola and found my place in the startup ecosystem.

I visited Vineet Buch, a VC from BlueRun Ventures, who I met at a local event called "Plug and Play Web 2.0" to get a feel for where to start checking out the valley. Vineet is an investor at Riya and and thinks like an entrepreneur. More on that visit soon.

I have a dilemma now and need your feedback users!
I updated this blog template to include mybloglog to show recent readers and also for every post I make to this blog, blogger (of Google, who hosts this blog) which has changed to a new version seems to email the entire blog (not just my recent post) to all feedburner subscribers.

I'll contact blogger and hopefully they should fix it soon. So my question to you is whether I should continue here or move this blog to . Please email or comment here, appreciate your time.

If we transition, I want to make it as easy as possible for you readers! Thanks and Regards :-) Sudha

We will miss you at BarCampBoston2 at MIT. Several attendees of last year's conference have told me your presentation on startups was one of their favorites.

I'm not a heavy blogger but most of my friends who are have switched to WordPress. As they say.... resistance is futile.

Hi! Thank you for that post. I found your blog while I was doing research on live help and live support software.
I see you are enjoying your google blogger :) Well, I think it's great that Google are making such good products like Blogger here, but also Picasa and other Google Apps. They have a great impact on what happens in the internet. I also wanted to tell you that it would be awesome if you would find a little time to visit my web site, it would be greatly appreciated. Maybe you are looking for live chat solution for your web site? If yes, please try LIVECHAT Contact Center. Using this application will help you maximizing online conversion, increase sales and customer satisfaction. My company's offer contains also LIVECHAT Communicator - multiprotocol instant messenger for business use. You can contact all of your friends (who use different applications like MSN, ICQ, etc) with it, but also organize instant messenging network in company. 14-day trial versions of both applications are free and you can download them directly from the web site.

Hey Sudha,
Just came to your blog from BusinessWeek coverage of Unconferences.IMHO,Wordpress is much better than Blogger(though I have my blog at Blogger,which I cannot move due to many reasons).

I am also working with my startup idea,which is a Web2.0 concept and when we were working on the same,I realized the power of Wordpress.

Also,another reason is "You never know when these guys would be able to help you..I have my profile problem with Blogger and it is still not solved :)"

So,shifting to Wordpress would be great!!!
