Reading books online

Last Updated: June 11, 2019 I appreciate and admire that these authors put their books on the web for free. By free books, I don’t just mean files you can download, or excerpts on fancy landing pages.

When the teams presented the […]

Why go local: Para Sa Tabi, May Pasok Ba?, and Facebuko

There’s really not much profit (monetary or otherwise) to be had in making local “copies” of the most popular sites today; you’ll probably just be called unimaginative and lame (read: jologs). But these sites are fun little ideas that stir up the chunks in our cultural halo-halo and remind us that quirky is interesting and copying is okay, as long as we make it our own. (But first, sites that […]
