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 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
If you check PTB everyday, you’d be entertained to find ot how often Eros and Rickey try to snag the number one place. As you would know Basang Panaginip made it to number one for about a month due to a high traffic hit because of his post on the world’s most realistic vector art. … Continue reading The Blog and the Beautiful
I’ve been reviewing gadgets for the past three years. In sum total I’ve written about a hundred plus reviews ansd columns and how to’s and such. It makes some people wonder if ever I get desensitized when I see a new toy. Short answer is yes, in fact. With mobile phones, in fact. The last … Continue reading When the sensuous get desensitized
Coming soon to a mobile phone near you: A Bugged Life … mobile!

Let’s say you want to score points on your date. When she asks you, during a romantic candlelight dinner, “so what do you do?” what do you end up telling her? Technically, you’re a writer. “But problogging is more than just writing” you end up thinking, out of pride in a local industry that is … Continue reading Is problogging a sexy job?
I met up with Gail and Marc this afternoon before going to the gym (a gym! you’re finally going to the gym? the full story for another day) to discuss some business. We talked about several things including some logistics that are being made in the WWW. And so this question came up: What do … Continue reading The Digg Army, 20 trillion thousands strong
I learned two things today. First, making use of powerful and controversial headlines such as “Will Gail get sued for blogging?” is a neat way to grab attention. The second thing I learned today is to never buy that book. No, not this book (this one you buy), but that other one. Erwin, are you … Continue reading When bloggers unite, the PR grows
