The aim of the #dhakatu tweetup (the hashtag used for Twitter promotion) is not about Mark talk talking about blogging. Rather, it is an event for tweeters and bloggers in Bangladesh to get together, to swap ideas, to discuss IT issues in Bangladesh, and to get wide community of bloggers involved from BASIS - representing the IT service companies.

But feel free to talk to Mark about blogging too! Mark is visiting Dhaka as part of a mission run by the UN and International Trade Centre (ITC) called NTF-II. Mark is a guest of BASIS during his stay.

I'm really looking forward to seeing you all at the tweetup. I have a load of formal meetings lined up as well as a couple of conferences to attend, but this will be a chance to hear from you directly about the problems companies in Bangladesh have getting noticed internationally.

Please do connect with me on LinkedIn and let's talk even in advance of the tweetup!

See you soon,

Blogger meetup is a regular event in Bangladesh as a result of the growing number of community blogs in Bangla language. And I hope to see more of the meetups soon.
