DigitalFilipino Talks used in School as reference material

After giving an update about the first month of DigitalFilipino Talks, I checked on our play stats this past week (February 11 to 18, 2011) and caught by surprise when the topic "Technopreneurship Lessons Learned" topped it.

Found out that Julius Mamaril, a professor based in Pangasinan, posted the video in his blog and encourage students to share their insight.

Am very happy about this and hope more trainers in the country will do the same.

Should you have suggestions on the topics we can discuss, just let us know.

Looking for Rent-a-Car Service

I have been renting a car for the past few months now to get me around the city and out-of-town. It relieves the hassle of worrying whether a taxi will be available and spare the need to worry for fuel, driver, parking space, and car maintenance.

Although there are days that the usual for-hire is not available that creates the need to find an alternative.

Found one at AyosDito and glad to know that the rate I am paying for at the moment is already reasonable.

I think hiring a rent-a-car rather than maintaining your own provides a lot of convenience.

This is especially true when the car you rented is actually in good condition with a responsible driver handling it.

Recalled trying to maintain a van sometime ago. Thinking about parking tickets, fuel, maintenance, driver fees and food allowance tends to pile up what I initially thought will be a saving.

Although from time to time, I can't help but also check out used cars. Maybe someday, I will get one.

Happy 7th birthday Facebook - My Office

Just found out that Facebook celebrated its 7th birthday. There are many reasons why I love Facebook.

(my entry to Enjoy Philippines contest last year)

I guess in short, Facebook is my office. Here are 7 ways I use it:

  1. Look for bloggers and coordinators in my campaign projects.
  2. Promote new videos, articles, training, and activities.
  3. Answer club membership and campaign inquiries.
  4. Share photos of travel and activities.
  5. Manage Facebook Pages and Ad campaigns of clients.
  6. Expand my network of contacts by connecting to people I am interested in doing business with either as a client or supplier.
  7. Keep in touch with friends and relatives.

How about you? How useful Facebook is for you?
