Jay Mahadeokar of Shri Ramdeobaba Kamla Nehru Engineering College (SRKNEC), Nagpur, India, has been busy since July organizing events on the SRKNEC campus with his colleague Vasusen Patil. Most recently, Jay wrote about the two faces of a campus ambassador: "the very social, active, public speaker type" who talks about technology 24x7 and the "geeky kind of a guy who learns and learns" about technology.
