Thanks to the wonderful folks at ESPNcricinfo I was lucky enough to be part of their Google+ Hangout with Rahul Dravid aka the only cause I cared for. It lasted 50 minutes and was an educational and fun experience at 2 AM on a Monday. Six of the people who participated in the Hangout were from the U.S. I have enough questions to bug Dravid with for a week but this was a mighty fine substitute.

While the sound quality from the studio could have been better, the technology and logistics to get 10 people from different parts of the world interacting on a browser tab with one of the all-time greats was mind-boggling. This is a great platform for collaboration and interaction and I am sure it will evolve into something very profound for sports websites, media outlets and athletes themselves.

Thanks ESPNcricinfo and thanks again Rahul Dravid for the joys of a lifetime.
