My New Tech Site: GeekOn.In

Earlier this week, I launched a new tech website called GeekOn.In. It's a blog for all kinds of geeks, written by geeks. We already have a team of three authors and we're looking to expand, so if you are interested in writing for the blog, email me at anthony@geekon.in and I will get back to you as soon as I can. So go ahead, and Geek on in.
