The night Benjie Tan hooked up PH to the Internet – COOL!

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.

I receive this marketing text promising me a grand life in a premiere location for 15k. Sometimes I wonder why ‘marketing’ promises richer grander living. Are they assuming all people receiving their message are losers?

if life would give me lemons, create a lemon app?

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.

The story of Jolicloud in 500,000 users! – “Follow your Users”

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.

Mobile OS Tally: Apple-7, Nokia-6, Android-1, Blackberry-?

I got this image from the slides below. I’m surprise to see that:

* Japan loves Apple. I mean they’re known to be so advanced regarding mobile devices with their DOCOMO. But it seems they’re ditching their own for Apple.

* Nokia is still number 2, and I think Android and Blackberry have still a lot of catching up to do. And, looking at it, it seems, it’ll be really stupid for them to make Windows their flagship mobile OS.

* Android is most popular in South Korea – not the surprising thing. The surprising thing is that it just shows how nationalistic South Koreans are — for buying their Samsung / LG phones over iPhone.

* Blackberry – If the infograph is true, it confirms that they’re really in trouble. But probably only to the individual consumer. They’re probably still strong with the enterprise — companies who wants to keep track of their employees. =)

* You might be more profitable making symbian apps over Android. I guess Android does well with creating hardware using it, than creating software for it. Or, create hardware and software and sell them as one.
