digital pinay public briefing

01/25/05 at 5:54 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 4 Comments

One of the good things that came out of the Digital Pinay 2005 public briefing last Friday afternoon was that I got to meet a few people I’d only previously met online through their blogs.

The members of the blogging community who attended the briefing were Clair Ching, Xenia Solano and Sean Uy. Ranulf Goss of Trend Micro was also there, but I’m not sure if he blogs though he has also been vocal in criticizing the now infamous application form of the contest.

Sacha Chua, who spearheaded this online protest, was of course not able to attend since she’s based in Japan, but she was definitely there in spirit.

Apart from me, the other members of the media who were there were our Infotech reporter Erwin Oliva and Relly Carpio of CEO Magazine.

    Wish Sacha was there to personally share her thoughts… Oh well.

  2. hey joey! been following the digital pinay controversy in silence. sayang, dito pala kayo sa acceed nag-forum. was just next door while the forum was on-going.

    oo nga, it would have been boombastic if Sacha were there. But of course, we all knew how she made things boombastic through the web and in people’s minds even if she were physically elsewhere.

    cheers to the cyber opinion-makers!
