As the annoucement read
Can you think of a better way to end 2005 than with the launch of our 40th Metroblogging city? Neither could we which is just one more reason we’re excited to announce Mumbai! Since that has gotten a few puzzled looks around these parts we’re going to go ahead and point out that the city used to be called Bombay (but was officially changed in 1995). It’s our first Indian city and the last one we’ll be launching this year. Stop by and see what’s going on.
Besides yours truly, other powerhouse contributors are Amit Varma of India Uncut fame, Yazad Jal of AnarCapLib, Sakshi Juneja of To Each It’s Own, Rahul Bhatia of GreenChannel and Akshay Mahajan of Trivial Matters.
Besides being all accomplished bloggers in their own right, each of the authors will try to bring out the best face of the city in the pantheon of world cities….aka Metroblogging.
Metroblogging gives you a local flavour of whats happening in cities around the world and you ucan get a good virtual tour of the world on one blog site.
A very cool feature is the random city button at the top right hand corner.
Check it out an do stop by once in a while. You can also send any of us a hat tip on something interesting, you would like to bring to the attention of a larger audience.
