All Things Newsworthy, Bloggable & Tweetable in 2009

This is an end of year post looking at all those extremely newsworthy events in 2009 that got us thinking. So strongly did we feel about some of the things that happened this year, and their consequences, that we had to run online to talk about them. We all had an opinion about these phenomena that we had to share. So newsworthy were they, in fact, that they compelled us to blog and tweet about them. Here they are, the people, objects, and events for 2009 that kept us busy online, and made the Indian digital social space what it was this past year.
