digital pinay public briefing
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.
