Objective

To have people troll at me and with me when I talk technology and a lot of other things. If you’ve seen comic relief, The tonight show, or comedy central well, I have also seen these shows. Hence I assume you know what is going to come at you. Amen!

Description

Let us take it upon ourselves to troll technology, religion, tv, politics, monogamy and a lot of other things. Let us be responsible.

    koushik - sorry perhaps I am new to this forum and am not seeing something.. but does this talk have anything to do with the agenda of the conference?

      Well no. The idea of this was to do something like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ci5p1OdVLAc as a possible curtain raiser or as a closure. This is not to be dismissive about the agenda of the conference but just to make a few people laugh at the end of an intellectual yet exhaustive gathering. Find the video of a similar act during Droidcon '12 I have done. Feel free to downvote should you think it won't fit into the scheme of things or it is interfering with the purity of an intellectual gathering.
