THE August 26 Million People March at the Luneta and the Sept 11 EDSA Tayo Prayer Vigil at the EDSA Shrine forced me to learn and taught me how to use Facebook. Just three weeks ago, I was only reading and sending messages on Email and researching by googling/searching on the web. As of now, I’m not yet on Twitter.
I was forced to learn to use the Internet regularly when OpinYon founder Ray Junia recruited me to write a column for his weekly opinion paper way back in mid – 2010. Previously, I still used a typewriter and personal delivery when I wrote for the Standard, the Philippine Daily Inquirer, The Manila Times and Butch Pichay’s first and only decent tabloid.
As the National Telecommunications Commission Commissioner, I authorized the first Cellular Phone Services in the Philippines – PLDT, Extelcom and maybe Piltel. However, it took me ten years to learn to text. If not for the Impeachment of President Estrada and a typhoon that stranded me in Iriga City, Camarines Sur in October 2000, I might never have learned to text.
