Barcamp Hyderabad preparation is going on exteremely well, response so far has been great. There has been good coverage in traditional print media as well as in the blogosphere. Here is a link to an article written by DNAIndia on Barcamps in India, it is erroneously referred to in the article that it was authored by K Sriniprasad. It was written by Jayalakshmi Menon as she was the one who contacted Ramesh here and also Kiruba at chennai to gather and write the story.
Ramesh said that a question that was brought up quite pertinently during the chat was whether there was any competition that was going on between Barcamp Chennai and Barcamp Hyderabad as they are organized on the same date. As I said earlier both the barcamps happening on the same day was just a matter of co-incidence. Also now both Barcamp Chennai and Barcamp Hyderabad is planning to have a video conference session between them on a common topic. Competition among barcamps would kill the spirit behind the whole spriit of barcamp. Barcamp is inclusive and not exclusive.
