Subject: The Philippines is In!
As of March 29,1994 at 1:15 am Philippine time, unfortunately 2 days late due to slight technical difficulties, the Philippines was FINALLY connected to the Internet via SprintLink. The Philippine router, a Cisco 7000 router was attached via the services of PLDT and Sprint communications to SprintLink’s router at Stockton Ca. The gateway to the world for the Philippines will be via NASA Ames Research Center. For now, a 64K serial link is the information
highway to the rest of the Internet world.

These are probably what I will do:
- tweet about it
- take a pic (http://piclyf.com) of it
- blog about it
- eat it, then tweet that i’m eating it
- take a pic of myself eating it
- blog about the eating experience
- will plan 101 ways to make money out of it but never execute them
If life would give me lemons, i’d annoy mark to create an app for it.
This is probably the most important lesson I’ve learned in the platform business: the most valuable asset is not the technology we have built but your users.
People are not loyal to devices, but they are loyal to brands they respect. And it’s our job to address all the devices they will use.
