Welcome to the Blogosphere, Among Ed!

June 09, 2008

Last Saturday, June 7, Among Ed launched his blog at the Executive House in San Fernando Pampanga. Luckily, I was invited by Mong of Blogger's Kapihan to the launch with about 20 other delegates from Manila.

When we arrived there, it was obviously an event directed towards the youth. Almost all of the guests are all under the age of 30, most probably under 25. Aside from Among Ed and the emcees, the invited speakers were also quite young (one of which is Jhay Rocas of the Blogger's Kapihan).

(Manila bloggers brought their artillery of laptops and cameras. I just brought my point and shoot camera. Inggit ako sa mga DSLR! And inggit ako sa ASUS EEE ni Tonyo. Among Ed also liked the EEE. heehee)

Among Ed is such an unassuming man. I hardly noticed that he arrived in the room. He was wearing a simple polo shirt, pants and sandals. He didn’t immediately assume a seat in front. He stood at the registration booth talking to his young Cabalens until he was acknowledged to speak. When he spoke, he had none of those highfaluting speeches on politics. He was direct to his point: his hopes for the country and the youth.

(Pictures will have to follow. I can’t seem to find my camera in my topsy-turvy dwelling. Apparently, I am still adjusting from being the brat to a “housewife”. But that’s a totally a different blog post. )

Just the week before, Jun Lozada also launched his own blog organized by the BK Crew. Apparently, the “elders” (Among Ed’s term, not mine) are learning to explore cyberspace (particularly blogging) as a medium to propagate their opinions, thoughts and experiences. Their primary target audience: the youth. For a media that is dominated by individualist and reactionary thought, it is such a relief for me that the youth has a (growing) source that offers the alternative.
