    Sabeen – congratulations. how about we take you ‘out’ for coffee?

    Jehan – I am completely out of the loop – how do I catch up with TiE Karachi and continue to stay updated? The website doesn’t seem to list events. What’s the best to stay in the loop?

    I cant forget my first interaction with her. When I entered T2F in the middle of a presentation/session with my noisy group. And she was kinna annoyed to have us.

    But nice to know about her, quite an impressive career I must say. I guess Dawn Review also published a piece on her few days back.

    Thanks JA 🙂

    @Farzal: Bundu Khan works for me 🙂 We’ll do a Facebook Page/Group for TiE Karachi soon and we’ll also be ramping up the website. And – we can always do SMS alerts to keep you in the loop – heh 😉

    @aMmAr: I couldn’t possibly have been annoyed to have you guys over – you must have been very disruptive for me to get annoyed 😉 I wonder if it was actually a TiE event – and I had to keep coming over to beg you guys to keep it down – trying to recall … Anyway, I think it’s about time we had a less “annoying” second interaction. Peace!

    It was David Barsamian’s lecture in March 0’8 to be exact 🙂 As for the less annoying interactions I hope there will be many inshallah both at t2f and in the cyber world.

    Btw you got quite an interesting blog.

    Peace out !~!
