People you'd like to see in our Small Talk

CEans,

Those who are not aware of CE Small Talk, please take a look here -> Small Talk

Every month (well, almost!) we try to publish Small Talks with people related to engineering who have changed the world. So far, we have managed to gather super-great people associated with engineering in our Small Talk section.

Tell us who you'd like to see in Small Talk. We'll try our best to get in touch with them and request them for Small Talks.

It would be just awesome if you could help us get in touch with them!

I am not sure we have had them or not !
1) Sudha Murthy
2) Achyut Godbole

I am in touch with Mr. Godbole. He said he's too lazy to respond through email πŸ˜‰ . Maybe Mayur can go to his residence in Mumbai to interview him.

Mayur?


For Sudha Murthy, I'll definitely try. Can someone from Infosys arrange for the contact?

I dont know if i should be writing his name or not ...
May be Mr. Chetan Bhagat..
what say??

Kaustubh Katdare • Nov 4, 2008
Well, our experience with Chetan Bhagat was bad. If you have time, go through this post I wrote on my blog : - The Big KÒ€ℒs SuperblogΓ’β€žΒ’ / Chetan Bhagat, Madhurima Banerjee (Chetan’s PR) & I

We will not interview Chetan Bhagat on CE.

Can it be possible to have a small talk with any successful Indian lady? I am sure it will benefit lot of female CEans over here. πŸ˜€

Look at following links -

Small Talk with Microsoft's Jessica Arnold about Outlook 2007

&

Small Talk with Celeste Baine
Well Good talks with them but talk with "Madam Jessica Arnold" was more about Outlook 2007 rather than her success story and "Madam Celeste Baine" is not an Indian as I asked for specifically in my last post. Good talks. Anyways I got my answer of question asked. Thanks.

Along those lines I would be very interested in reading about the creation and start up of CE. Might make a good sticky amongst the newbie info.

Alrighty. I've an interesting story to tell from the initial days. Maybe I'll post it on CE's fourth birthday? November 26, 2009.

That is far too long away, I'm sure you can tell other stories by then! I bet everyone is curious what the spark was that brought CE into existance.
Yes biggie say what actually made you to start CE 😁

I hereby suggest Mr. Woody Norris for our small talk, although I guess the process is already going on to get him here..

As I said, Dr. Kalam was approached but we didn't receive any response. Will surely try again.

I'm targeting people who remained away from the public while making our life easier and better.

We surely have great interviews lined up! Stay tuned

Can we forget the talk of the town nowadays - Sharath babu?
Though he is not an engineer, he is one who must be interviewed..
I think we must all know his success story.
Wish to see small talk with Abdul Kalam Azad... a great scientist and Ex-president, India.

Bit difficult at the time being.

I had been hunting the engineers who have been hiding behind the scenes and running the world. Lot of cool Small Talks are lined up. Stay tuned πŸ˜€
