Elitist geek haters vs. emo jologs Friendsters (Twitter vs. Plurk)

Warning: comparing Twitter and Plurk is messy. Both are different things to different people, and unless these people agree to disagree the debate will never end. Here’s my response to The Death of Plurk and the comments on it. This is by no means comprehensive, just lengthy enough to be a standalone post.

Are You Blogging A Virus?

The Storm Worm recently hit computers around the world with its attention-grabbing subject line “230 dead as storm batters Europe” last January. Yes, viruses and other malware attacking the masses are hardly worth my while these days. For one thing, I’ve had zero hits with GMail’s no-executable file allowed policy. Second, I’ve been surfing the Internet long enough to tell if an email is suspicious, i.e., too good to be […]

PTB vs. PWiT: Philippine Crab Mentality Online

Okay, I don’t understand why people have to create something out of nothing, i.e., pit Pinoy Tech Blog against PWiT.

I do have some things in mind but they’re too short for full length posts, so I stared at my blog for several days and pondered on whether to install some sort of asides (side-blogging) feature. Obviously, I haven’t (I […]

WYGIWYG

What you give is what you get could be the spelled out version of an acronym that’s much catchier than “The Golden Rule.” And if I’d have to rename TotallyDeserved.com, I’d probably use that. (Hmm, WYGIWYG has potential; I wonder how to use it without being a copycat!)
