When you google yourself, are you happy with what you see?

More than 4 years na pala akong nagba-blog. Nung una, ang plano ko lang is to make this site a place where I can post my 'written works' na akala ko eh sobrang ganda kaya kailangan i-share. Siyempre noong nagsimula ako, kakagraduate ko lang ng college. Kakasimula ko lang sa trabaho. Kakasimula lang din ng buhay ko outside school.

Looking back, wala naman masyadong nagbago sa akin. At least that's what I think. Siguro mas naging mature, mas naging responsible at mas naging defined lang ako as a person. Other than that, wala na. May mga nagbago naman pero the basics are still there. Mahilig pa din ako maglakwatsa. Madalas pa din ako makalimot. Masaya pa din ako, generally.

When you google yourself, are you happy with what you see? 

I did and I think I am happy with it.

Nakilala ko ang sarili ko over the years. Nagkaroon ng Friendster. Nakagraduate ng college. Nagkaroon ng Facebook. Ni hindi ko binalak na magka-Myspace dahil pang-emo lang yun nung sikat pa siya.

Sa bawat account na gagawin ko, nagkaroon ako ng identity.. Nagkaroon ng direksyon ang buhay ko. Kayanga hindi ko gustong i-link ang Facebook at LinkedIn account ko, dahil magkaiba ang dahilan kung bakit ko binuksan yun. Kahit na magkaibang tao ang personalidad ko sa dalawa, ako pa din iyon at alam ko lang kung paano ilugar ang sarili ko sa bawat isa.

Sa bawat friends na ia-add ko, at sa bawat friend requests na ia-approve ko, natuto akong makisama; makipamuhay sa mga tao sa paligid ko. Natuto akong mabuhay kasama ng iba.

Sa bawat message na ise-send ko at sa bawat tweet na ipo-post ko, nagkaroon ako ng kumpiyansa sa sarili dahil ibinabahagi ko ang sarili ko sa iba. Na ako ay may sariling tinig. May sariling dahilan para sa iba.

Kampante ako na tuwing haharap ako sa salamin, ako pa din ang makikita ko. Na sa bawat taong mag-unfollow sa akin, sa bawat taong mag-unfriend sa akin, kampante ako dahil alam kong may mga taong kahit anong gawin ko, nasa likod ko lang. Buti na lang may circles na. Secured ako na sila lang ang makakakita at sila lang ang dapat makakita.

Reflection ko ang nakikita ko. Online at offline. May ibang result lang na hindi ako masyadong proud. Dahil madalas pa din akong magkamali. Minsan nagpopost ako dahil ito ang uso. Guilty din naman ako kapag gusto kong magyabang. Minsan kasi hindi din nakakatuwa kapag alam mong hindi totoo ang sinasabi ng iba kaya wala kang gagawin kundi talunin sila sa sarili nilang laro. Siguro naman sa akin, hindi naman madalas mangyari yun. Meron kasing mga tao na bawat status message nila, ginto ang lumalabas sa pwet nila.

Masaya ba ako kapag na-google ko ang sarili ko?


Sa bawat bad review na natanggap ko, sa bawat negative comment na harapin ko, natuto akong tumayo sa sarili kong paa.

More than 10 years na akong buhay online, ang dami ko ng accounts at email addresses na binuksan. Kasing dami lang ng pimples na dumaan sa mukha ko. Ngayon, wrinkles na ang kapalit. Nagkakaedad na nga talaga ako.

Pero siguradong hindi pa ito tapos. Hanggat may wifi akong nasasagap at hanggang sa may letra pa ang laptop ko, tuloy ang buhay.

Hello, titigil ka ba dahil lang sa mahinang internet connection?

Siyempre hindi. Hahanap ka ng mas magandang connection. Kawawa nga lang ang kapitbahay mo. :)

Google: When patents attack Android

I found this article from Digg and was very impressed by it.It’s an article posted in Google’s Official Blog written by

When patents attack Android

8/03/2011 12:37:00 PM

I have worked in the tech sector for over two decades. Microsoft and Apple have always been at each other’s throats, so when they get into bed together you have to start wondering what’s going on. Here is what’s happening:

Android is on fire. More than 550,000 Android devices are activated every day, through a network of 39 manufacturers and 231 carriers. Android and other platforms are competing hard against each other, and that’s yielding cool new devices and amazing mobile apps for consumers.

But Android’s success has yielded something else: a hostile, organized campaign against Android by Microsoft, Oracle, Apple and other companies, waged through bogus patents.

They’re doing this by banding together to acquire Novell’s old patents (the “CPTN” group including Microsoft and Apple) and Nortel’s old patents (the “Rockstar” group including Microsoft and Apple), to make sure Google didn’t get them; seeking $15 licensing fees for every Android device; attempting to make it more expensive for phone manufacturers to license Android (which we provide free of charge) than Windows Phone 7; and even suing Barnes & Noble, HTC, Motorola, and Samsung. Patents were meant to encourage innovation, but lately they are being used as a weapon to stop it.

A smartphone might involve as many as 250,000 (largely questionable) patent claims, and our competitors want to impose a “tax” for these dubious patents that makes Android devices more expensive for consumers. They want to make it harder for manufacturers to sell Android devices. Instead of competing by building new features or devices, they are fighting through litigation.

This anti-competitive strategy is also escalating the cost of patents way beyond what they’re really worth. The winning $4.5 billion for Nortel’s patent portfolio was nearly five times larger than the pre-auction estimate of $1 billion. Fortunately, the law frowns on the accumulation of dubious patents for anti-competitive means — which means these deals are likely to draw regulatory scrutiny, and this patent bubble will pop.

We’re not naive; technology is a tough and ever-changing industry and we work very hard to stay focused on our own business and make better products. But in this instance we thought it was important to speak out and make it clear that we’re determined to preserve Android as a competitive choice for consumers, by stopping those who are trying to strangle it.

We’re looking intensely at a number of ways to do that. We’re encouraged that the Department of Justice forced the group I mentioned earlier to license the former Novell patents on fair terms, and that it’s looking into whether Microsoft and Apple acquired the Nortel patents for anti-competitive means. We’re also looking at other ways to reduce the anti-competitive threats against Android by strengthening our own patent portfolio. Unless we act, consumers could face rising costs for Android devices — and fewer choices for their next phone.

UPDATE August 4, 2011 - 12:25pm PT

It’s not surprising that Microsoft would want to divert attention by pushing a false “gotcha!” while failing to address the substance of the issues we raised. If you think about it, it’s obvious why we turned down Microsoft’s offer. Microsoft’s objective has been to keep from Google and Android device-makers any patents that might be used to defend against their attacks. A joint acquisition of the Novell patents that gave all parties a license would have eliminated any protection these patents could offer to Android against attacks from Microsoft and its bidding partners. Making sure that we would be unable to assert these patents to defend Android — and having us pay for the privilege — must have seemed like an ingenious strategy to them. We didn’t fall for it.

Ultimately, the U.S. Department of Justice intervened, forcing Microsoft to sell the patents it bought and demanding that the winning group (Microsoft, Oracle, Apple, EMC) give a license to the open-source community, changes the DoJ said were “necessary to protect competition and innovation in the open source software community.” This only reaffirms our point: Our competitors are waging a patent war on Android and working together to keep us from getting patents that would help balance the scales.
