Is it … Continue reading Has blogging helped you find true love?
Like most of you with a mobile computer, I’ve been searching the vicinity for an open wireless hotspot so that I could do work. We still don’t have electricity and water at home and we’ve been trying to chansaw the huge mango tree that fell into our garden (pictures to follow). Luckily I found a … Continue reading The search for the open wireless hotspot
I got this from Jeremy. The elevator pitch is similar to the drive by shooting of potential VC funding. Here’s a video to help equip you with that tool. Who knows, the next person you might be stuck in an elevator with could be your next venture capitalist.

Here are some tips I offer PR agencies when organizing events for the press, especially for the tightly knit technology industry: Lose the hard copy but never the soft copy People in … Continue reading PR Tips for the Philippine agencies
I’ve survived without a printer at home for almost two years. It may seem odd, since I belong to the publishing industry. If ever I needed to print something, there was always Station 168 right outside my village or I’d bug my neighbor. Of course, that would be really embarassing in the long run. So … Continue reading HP Officejet 4355 All-in-One Printer

I got this fun link from Yuga. Certified Backlinks.Site Class:Are you a Big Fish? Okay okay I cheated. I brought in the big guns after seeing how badly this personal blog of mine did. After much deliberation, I’ve also added the Pinoy Top Blogs code to my cellphone blog.
Yesterday concluded the end of our six day workshop for Batch 25 of Photoworks! I learned a lot from Leo Castillo and my classmates.

To cap … Continue reading Photo Project: Working with Frames

Here’s the answer – viral marketing. (Oooh just like blogs) Wait, let’s go back a few notches and let me tell you how the Zune will work.

So you have ten … Continue reading The Microsoft Zune business model
