History of this blog:
This blog was started to improve the communication amongst wingees (last at front wing Ashok Bhavan) of BITS Pilani from the 1984 batch. All of us mostly from the EEE branch although this group does include some people from other branches and also now includes another BITSian from a later batch. This blog experiment continues to survive due to continuous contributions from Ganesh and Sukumar, Priya and Sibu.

Added an explore link to the blog banner area to point to the category tree. Took out the category tree from the main page to reduce clutter.
Sukumar, March 26,2006
Changed the blog to a 2 column layout. Per many bloggers it makes the blog more readable.

To make it easier to follow the Unsung Blogger series, added a Unsung Blogger Blogroll to the favorites section. Although only 10 Unsung Bloggers have been featured, since each one points to upto 5 other blogs,
we have close to 40 blogs on this list now!

As announced earlier, we have started a new series – Unsung Blogger of the Week in response to “The Blog 500 Challenge”. Look forward to hearing your comments.
The color scheme of the blog has been changed for Model Year 2006. We may make a few more layout changes to reduce the clutter.

Having been associated with the media and the automotive industry for a while, we are going to copy them and introduce a new look and feel for the blog every fall starting this fall September 2005.
We are also going to start a new series to respond to the “The Blog 500 Challenge” – premiering Fall 2005.
Thank you wingees and readers for your continued support and encouragement.
