Jet Set Lara

Jet Set Lara is a 'courtesan'. Euphemism for a escort girl, but not the stuff that you will find on Adult Friend Finder. She charges 5000 pounds per day and is rather attractive, but that is serious money. I don't know why, but after reading her Blog and the article that The Sunday Times of London wrote about her, I feel strangely attracted to this raven haired beauty.
Meanwhile on the Blog front, Technorati reports that a Blog is created every second. According to the blog-tracking site over 80,000 new weblogs are created every day, a whopping 14.2 million blogs were created last month. Sadly, like my first four blogs most of these blogs met horrible deaths due to user apathy. This blog has been strangely active of late thanks to Snakeman's sudden reappearance, and DTTIM is quickly headed towards 200 posts in under eight full months of random blogging. Not bad, I say.
Now, other than a few uninformed articles in the mainstream media, of which both of us are full-time (well, Snakeman is vela right now) members, no-one will write anything about it. Strangely enough though, the last time I met Joydeep Bose (or JoJo to those who know him) the _________ (fill in the blank with your own adjective) editor of ToI (and a man I like, unlike 99.999% of desi media bloggers who think he is a modern day version of Beelzebub), I was surprised by just how much he knew about blogs (and technology for that matter). Yet, ToI (and now that Sankeman has left, even HT) will never write about blogs.
By the way, what is it with the Ambani brothers and Maneka Doshi? At the ADAE presser in Bombay today (shown live on TV) Anil Ambani asks "Any more questions from the back before I turn the floor over to Maneka?" As TV stars are born (and start doing MMS clips as I said yesterday) it seems they might even replace movie stars in the lives of some people. (hint, hint!)

Honestly, I do not think Jojo has a lot of say in the day-to-day running of the toi machine. From the little I've seen of him, at least as a person he seems to be a nice and aimiable, Strangely, there were a lot of people from the machine who were quite nice in person, can't speak for the professional part since I've not worked much with them thank god, like Bachi, Ayaz etc.

On an unrelated note, since you seem to be on a quest to read good blogs, have you ever read Sramana Mitra? It is a pretty interesting mix of business, venture capital and a lot of personal stuff. Try it out:
