Outlook on IIPM

Outlook has published an article about the recent IIPM-desi blogosphere spat, taking a condescending view of the immature blogging community.


The Indian blogging community (or blogosphere, as it likes to call itself) is essentially a bitchy, self-indulgent and an almost incestuous network comprising journalists, wannabe-writers and a massive army of geeks who give vent to their creative ambitions on the internet. Given that the average blogger-age is 25 years, it's clear bloggers love to indulge in hearty name-calling and taking college-style potshots at others. This is probably why some of them get into trouble.



1. I think the writer needs to take a course on basic journalism. He seems to be reporting exactly what he sees and hears. That's not journalism.

2. What he says about the desi blogging community is right. It is a self-indulgent army consisting mostly of people with an IQ of 3.

Its clear that only confirmed morons have joined IIPM in the past and there will be many confirmed morons who will join IIPM in the future. No amount of blogging can save any moron from joining IIPM. So IIPM management have actually proved that (a) they are morons when they sued and protested. (b) they don't know that they are morons and need bloggers to tell them that. (c) they don't know that their students are morons and need bloggers to tell them that.
