What is WebReps all about?

In their own words:

WebReps is not just about, meeting in an evening, having a good party, exchanging a few links / visiting cards and promoting the blog, seeing each other in person, a few sweet handshakes, offline networking…

WebReps can be treated as a platform where we come together to decide what we can do to take Indian Web Industry forward, locate universal resources, get more people online and all the above.

A good start I would say, whaaadaya think?
