I am here at IITM, Chennai to help out NextDrop in some technology discussions, and have been blown away by the kinds of companies incubated at the Rural Technology Business Incubation facility (RTBI).

To get a taste of what I'm talking about, definitely watch this talk at Google by Prof. Ashok Jhunjhunwala (the good stuff starts at 17 min 13 sec):

Are you in Chennai now? When you were writing this post, I must have been about 200ft away, on the road cycling to my office :-)
