Last week’s conference organized by the Southeast Asian Press Alliance (Seapa) in cooperation with the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism (PCIJ) with the support of the Berkman Center Center for Internet and Society offered me a chance to meet bloggers and journalists from all over Asia.
Time flew so fast for the conference–an indication that I found it very interesting–that I found myself back at the airport in what appeared to be merely a day after stepping out of it.
I met Portnoy, a blogger from Taiwan, who asked for advice in choosing which Lucky Me instant cup noodle to bring back to his girlfriend. I picked my favorites: La Paz Batchoy and Palabok. He couldn’t have found a more knowledgeable conference delegate as instant noodles and sandwiches are common blogging and writing food for me–these are efficient to eat and the simplest to prepare especially if you’ï¿½re chasing a tight deadline.

I also don’t know how PNA compiled the list, I tried looking for a listing of the top Philippine sites in Netcraft but couldn’t find one. There’s a listing of the most visited websites with site rank scores but this isn’t grouped by countries and there isn’t even a link to succeeding pages.

Many ballots have been put aside because it appears only one person did the voting,” Legarda told radio station dyLA yesterday. Former senator Loren Legarda yesterday said initial revision of contested ballots shows she was robbed of her votes in Mandaue City during […]
That’s the headline of the Philippine Journalism Review story on the Oct. 22 conference on blogging and journalism. The conference was organized by the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism. I can’t find an online version of the article but here’s a scanned copy of the page: If you’re interested, here are photos I took of […]
This week’s holding of the 1st Bohol Internet and Net Security conference marked the island-provinceï¿½s move to take part in the information and communications technology (ICT) world. The initiative is led by the private sector — with some support from the government sector.
The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) appears to be the initiative’s biggest supporter with both the outgoing and incoming directors present during the conference. The governor and the mayor weren’t there (both were on official trips) and the representatives they sent only went there during the first day.
