AOL began as a short-lived venture called Control Video Corporation (or CVC), founded by Bill von Meister.

Its sole product was an online service called GameLine for the Atari 2600 video game console after von Meister’s idea of buying music on demand was rejected by Warner Brothers. GameLine permitted subscribers to temporarily download games and keep track of high scores, at a cost of $1 per game. The telephone disconnected and the downloaded game would remain in GameLine’s Master Module and playable until the user turned off the console or downloaded another game.

The original technical team was composed of Marc Seriff, Tom Ralston, Ken Huntsman, Janet Hunter, Dave Brown, Steve Trus, Ray Heinrich, Craig Dykstra, and Doug Coward.

With regional branches around the world, it was the former American “goliath among Internet service providers”.

Rural IT Quiz 2006

Rural IT Quiz
29 October 2006
Bangalore Palace, Palace Ground, Bangalore
Part of Bangalore IT.in 2006
Quizmaster: Giri ‘PickBrain’ Balasubramaniam

Bangalore is the IT Capital of the country and Bangalore IT. in is definitely the landmark yearly extravaganza at India’s Silicon Valley & The Rural IT Quiz seems to be the biggest crowd puller year after year.

The reason I make it a point to be present at this Quiz is not just because its yet another big quiz, but I (now) realize that I have an emotional bonding to this quiz.

Year after year, I see young children come from places as distant (wont use the word rural, at least not after I witnessed them performing) as Tumkur, Karwar, Shimoga etc and rock the Bangalore Palace with the most amazing answers!!

Let me put it this way- how many of us know that Mcorp Global holds the maximum stake in Spice Telecom and that The Founder’s Touch was a book on the Life of Paul Galvin??

Well, these students from Rural Karnataka definitely knew all these and much more.

As the clock struck 4:30, the Palace Grounds seemed deserted as every individual headed to the spacious Bangalore Palace (Audience size around 1500) to witness 12 students battle for Karnataka Quizzing’s biggest glory!

The stakes are undoubtedly high, but seem miniscule when weighed against the difficulties overcome by the students to reach this stage.

Some Stats:

Total participation this year: 9,55,000 Students (yes, Nine Lakh Fifty Five thousand)

Regional Round Prizes:

I Prize: Rs 15,000

II Prize: Rs 7,500

III Prize: Rs 4000

And all teams on stage get Rs 2000 each

After clearing three stages of Quizzing (including a complete Regional Final), the six finalists for the State finals were:

1) VB Durbar PU College, Bijapur (All girls team)

2) Forbes Academy, Belgaum (Tenth standard Boys)

3) Sarvodya PU College, Tumkur

4) Little Rock School, Udupi

5) Pragathi Composite School, Shimoga

6) St Josephs PU College, Hassan

Six rounds of Quizzing included:

1) WorkStation- The dry Questions Round

2) Cryptic IT- Crossword Round

3) Domain Expertise- Selection of Topics

4) Download IT- Team Specific 3 clue question round

5) Beyond the Obvious- Well known Pickbrain Round

6) Instant Processing- Speed Round

 

Winning the quiz hands down and in style (with super answers) were St Joseph’s PU College, Hassan followed by Little Rock, Udupi

 

Prize Money: (excluding other goodies common to all finalists)

I Prize: Rs 80,000

II Prize: Rs 50,000

III Prize- Rs 35,000

Final Standing:

1) St Joseph’s PU College, Hassan

2) Little Rock School, Udupi

3) Forbes Academy- Belgaum

 

Year after Year, I get emotional after the Quiz and this year was no exception

Watching these children perform so wonderfully, I look back at each one of our lives.

Competition might be tough but the luxuries are over flowing as well!

 

Hats off to each one of those students who not only got on stage but also to those who have participated.

 

Lat year’s review: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/quizkrieg/message/519

Rural IT Quiz 2005- Review

Rural IT Quiz

27 October 2005

Bangalore Palace, Palace Ground, Bangalore

Part of Bangalore IT.in 2005

Quizmaster: Giri ‘PickBrain’ Balasubramaniam

Review:

Mother Nature was not very kind to us Bangaloreans, as she expressed her wrath with overcast skies and heavy downpour, but this did not subdue the enthusiasm at the Rural IT Quiz held at the Bangalore Palace yesterday.

While the quiz was graced by the IT and BT secretary of Karnataka and the who’s who of the Tata Group, there were over a thousand expectant spectators.

The six finalists (from a total of 65000 entrants across the state), who had already cleared four rounds of hardcore IT quizzing in the zonal rounds seemed all set for the State final.

The finalists had already won Rs 15,000 in cash, a Casio scientific calculator and other prizes (all courtesy TCS)

The stage was set and the time had come to announce the stakes.

As custom, the Tata Group decided to award all of them a cordless phone for coming this far.

And the stakes: (besides the Rs 15,000 already won)

2nd Runner Up: Rs 20,000

1st Runner Up: Rs 35,000

Winner: Rs 60,000

Then came the time to announce the six finalists

In random order, the finalists were:

Table 1: Government PU College, Karwar

The college was represented by Sumeet Naik and Vignesh Poojar.

This team came from, quite literally, Rural Karnataka. After beating the two time State champions, Little Rock, Udupi, it seemed like they deserved to be seated on table 1.

Table 2: Sarvodaya PU College, Tumkur

The team comprised of Mahesh Kumar and Naveed Abrar.

These two boys had earlier (in class 10) qualified for the zonal rounds independently and they ended up in the same college for their +2 and their teaming up definitely paid off as they reached their first ever State final.

Table 3: BVVS Polytechnic, Jamkhandi

The team comprised of Santosh and Nikhil G.

Coming from a district as remote as Jamkhandi in itself is a great achievement and to add to that they actually reached the State final.

Table 4: Carmel Convent, Mandya

The team comprised of Kriti Y C and Sneha V.

They were the youngest team to ever reach the state finals. Both the girls were in standard 8. And let me tell you they have four years of quizzing to go and I guarantee you that their names will be seen in these columns quite often (especially after I announce the final results)

Table 5: Nutana PU College, Davangere

The team comprised of Anil Kumar and Sridhar.

They were the wounded tigers of the quiz. After entering the finals of the zonal rounds for four continuous years, it was only in their last year that they were able to enter the State final.

Table 6: V B Darbar High School, Bijapur

The team comprised of Bharat and Gururaj Patil.

Both the boys were tenth standard students and extremely calm, composed and collected.

The audience was packed with not only expectant parents but also students with varied backgrounds. There were students from UVCE, Jain College ,PESIT and many more..

There was this young gentleman, a teacher in Bijapur, who had come all the way to watch the quiz even though his school had not qualified for the final. Now, that calls for a big thumbs up. Cheers, professor!!

The quiz was beautifully conducted by our renowned Giri Pickbrain Balasubramanian with his supreme wit and exuberance.

Consisting of five rounds, the quiz was as informative and elegant as it could be.

And for the winners

A close finish

One team was on 55 and the other on 60, with one question to go and it turned out that a third team pressed the buzzer.

TCS Rural IT Quiz Winners- V B Darbar High School, Bijapur

The results:

#1-VB Darbar High School, Bijapur

#2-Government PU College, Karwar

#3-Carmel Convent, Mandya

If you had been part of the event, you would have definitely gone home with the same feeling each one of us present there had- ‘there was no single winner, each one of them was a true winner’

A candid conversation with Giri revealed facts which touched my heart-

For obvious reasons, I am not disclosing any names.

1. One of the finalists was the son of a bus conductor.

2. The father of one of the finalists barged into the zonal finals and started blasting his son. The reason: The son did not water the field as he had come to attend the zonal finals. Yes, the father was, or should I say, is a farmer.

3. Most of the finalists complained to Giri that they could not read the questions fast enough to press the buzzer as the questions were all in English.

4. The quiz was conducted in Kannada at its early stages.

Now, I hope you all agree why each one of them was a true winner. They braved every obstacle and reached a stage which very few (of us), even with all our luxuries, can reach.

Giri actually did the entire quiz in Kannada in the first three rounds.

Great work, Giri

Three Cheers and Keep it Up.

We hope to see a lot of you in the near future,Giri
