leave a comment »

Its been a long time since I posted here and I have lots of excuses for that. 😉

India is hosting Microsoft’s most awaited Global Student Competition – Imagine Cup. Imagine Cup 2005 Global finals was hosted by Japan and everyone throughout the world witnessed real cool applications developed by students.

It’s amazing to see all these passionate students doing such great work. The Imagine Cup brings fun competition and tough challenges to the next generation of software innovators, and I’m excited that Microsoft is helping them succeed.

The theme for Imagine Cup 2006 –

“Imagine a world where technology enables people to live healthier lives”
