I was a huge fan of Battlefield 1942 a few years back. Now it’s the same thing, 200 years later! You can download the demo here. The file is about 1GB fat though.
I saw the lineup of some of the new stuff that are going to be released, and it gives me a really wide geeky smile. Come one, come all! I’ve attached the two event banners on top. Feel free to click on them and link to our press release.
Though I cannot quantify the quality of my one year stay with my cobloggers at b5media, the financial institutions have pegged it at $2 million USD. Of course, this invested money was meant to grow the business into something we vaguely describe to be totally awesome in the coming months. Of course if it one … Continue reading b5media’s $2M: Blogging has bought me a whole new world
I’m here at Teak Bistro for the community launch of the Mac Pro, 500 inch iMac (I lost count already, the screen justgets bigger and bigger) and the new iPods. Sadly I didn’t bring my camera to take traditional “unboxing” pictures of the new Macs. You can view the full community thread at PhilMUG here.
The online gossip is just too hot to handle. I deal with the people from Inq7 fairly often due to the online media group I’m building for Hinge-Inquirer Publications. Well, the rumors are NOT true. I repeat, NOT true. I had a pitcher of mojitos with a good friend from the staff (partly to celebrate … Continue reading INQ7.net: We’re still friends!
In the publishing industry, a magazine is usually killed if it has not turned profitable after 36 months in the business. First year gains visibility, second year makes up for year one and hopefully third year at least breaks even. Case in point is GamesMaster strong yet unprofitable 3 year-reign. So my question is, does … Continue reading Should you kill your blog after three years?
It’s past midnight and I’m catching up on lost emails. I’m currently blogging from the manor of John Hay in Baguio, where the entire area is a wireless hotspot. I’m here for a three day planning session for our company’s 2006-2007 strategies. Since everyone is asleep i decided to sneak out and do some catching … Continue reading Wireless in Camp John Hay Manor and other thoughts
After reading Abe’s post on how the typhoon affected the Philippine blogosphere and stunted traffic, I checked up on my phone blog which I had added onto the PTB Project a few days prior to the storm. Turns out that because of the consistency of international traffic and the sudden downing of local traffic, Cellphone9 … Continue reading The joys of international traffic
Yesterday, Rico and I enjoyed the snack that blogging bought. Contrary to popular belief, blogging can also buy you everyday things – not just cars, houses and expensive tech stuff. For instance, blogging has also bought me the following: 3 vendo machine drinks while waiting for my eye checkup pizza (reall good stuff from Brooklyn … Continue reading Other things that blogging has bought me
It is true that blogging can be financially rewarding. But what about the things that blogging cannot buy – like true love? I’ve heard stories – well, rumors of bloggers who find love (or at the very least a one night stand) from blogging. What is it that attracts readers to blog authors? 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.
UPDATE: Doh! Cancelled! Despite the strong rain, we are pushing through with our concert tonight! Entrance is free! All you need to do is bring or buy a copy of BURN Magazine at the SM Mall of Asia Music Lounge. See you all there!
It’s finally out in the wild. Darren Rowse has a good explanation of TLA Feedvertising here but its really just common sense: a lotof people don’t visit blogs to read posts. They visit feeds. So might as well advertise on feeds then, right? What I love about the new Feedvertising is the ability to post … Continue reading Text Link Ads introduces Feedvertising
Elber poses beside the BlogCon logo Wow, what a trip! (as if it was really that far away) Thanks to everyone who came and spread the link love. I hope everyone enjoyed the evening as well as the short presentations given by the guest speakers. Thank you Globe Innove for the sponsorship! I want to … Continue reading Back from BlogCon 2006
