I sideline as a PR connoseur. Hah! In truth, I’ve attended about a hundred PR events, big and small since the year 2003. 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
Our music magazine, BURN is hosting a really cool mag launch concert this September 28 2006. Everyone is invited! We recently launched the BURN website as part of the new corporate blog network of Hinge-Inquirer Publications. Wow, a corporate blog network here in the Philippines? Interesting ain’t it? More on this in the next few … Continue reading BURN BABY BURN!

I’ll be bringing my studio quality microphone which I borrowed from HIT Studio’s Vic Icasas. I want to see how well the … Continue reading The BlogCon 2006 Podcast
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. It is a class I am recommending to those who would want to learn how to develop an eye for photography with (relatively) not a lot of technical information. 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. I had actually written about it here, but I believe this deserves some elaboration due to the unique way Microsoft will market this product. So you have ten … Continue reading The Microsoft Zune business model
I had dinner with INQ7’s Editor in Chief JV Rufino last week because I needed a bit of insight on information architecture. He was essentially the only person who I felt could help me with some issues about IA. There is a big similarity between being an editor of a magazine and being an editor … Continue reading “A Bugged Life” Blog Blueprint
I live by the idea that everything that you do has some apostolic purpose, no matter how small it may be, from the twitching of your finger, to you buying that book, to you not reading that book, to becoming president of a company. A lot of my contemporaries in the blogging industry say that … Continue reading The Butterfly Effect
I’ve been long thinking of a blog overhaul. The main purpose would be to better position my site against the stuff I do for a living. A Bugged Life started as an experiment but as all experiments eventually turn into patents and then products, I’ve been considering targeting my blog’s niche into more specific items. … Continue reading Thinking of a site redesign
I write for a magazine called Mobile Philippines, formerly known as m|PH. I’ve been doing so for the past three years. On the cover of our nth issue (I’ve actually lost count) is Anne Curtis, who is in my humble opinion the most gorgeous cover girl we’ve had so far. For posterity’s sake: What’s gorgeous … Continue reading Anne Curtis up front and center
Haven’t you noticed how the word “beta” has become more appealing to Web 2.0? It just looks and sounds cooler. In context, there is no such thing as retail anymore. At least, over the Internet. Don’t you agree?
A few months back, a few Filipino bloggers wanted to organize a “bloggers for bloggers” event similar to Gnomedex. Of course, Gnomedex was sponsored by Lockergnome which meant they had the resources to pull this off. At that time, we were looking for a sponsor for this type of event which would be geared more … Continue reading Killer name for that killer blog event
