iBlog Mini: Blogging Gloriagate 3

Posted on July 28, 2005 by Administrator

On August 4, 2005, from 9 am to 12 noon at the UP College of Law, UP-ISP will be holding an iBlog Mini entitled: “Blogging Gloriagate” as part of iBlog’s discussion series that intends to document the impact of blogging in Philippine society.

About the forum

The Philippine blogging scene was taken by storm as the Gloriagate scandal erupted. Freedom of expression to vent issues and share perspectives paved the way for alternative sources of information.

Even as government issued a ban on media outfits from playing the Gloriagate tape, PCIJ fearlessly posted it online and gave access to thousands of Internet users. Media blogs like Sun.Star offered consolidated articles through blog that allowed its worldwide Filipino readers to give a reaction to the issue at hand. News Reporter Jove Francisco tags readers along, through his blog, in his coverage of the issue. Columnists such as Manuel L. Quezon III and Connie Veneracion offered insightful analysis as well. These organizations and personalities have become truly influential in the blogosphere today.

Warm Bodies 5

Posted on July 24, 2005 by Administrator

I visited Sky‘s blog and found out that the online anthology “Warm Bodies” now has its 2nd edition, “Warm Bodies 2: Orange Sunset.” This is a compilation of selected bloggers’ interpretation of the theme Change.

In the first edition “Warm Bodies: The Kris Aquino Complex,” bloggers gave their insight on a specific issue and connect it with their lives, much like what the actress is famous for.

It will be great to have the Warm Bodies contributors to speak in an iblog conference someday. I wonder how such an online anthology affected their blogging experience.
