The Google Wave – A mutation of browser communication

I am pretty excited on what the Google developers unveiled recently which they tagged as the Google Wave.  The idea of coming up with such innovation on how we communicate and share ideas/thoughts, objects and assets online has taken a giant leap so far.

I personally do feel that companies and IT people should particularly watch out for the release of the Google Wave because it will definitely make a big stash on your IT budget on collaboration platform which you have been using. Let me say, Google wave can make us more  productive in a sense by using it. Yes, productive!

Google Wave pushes the power of internet browsers further and beyond. It will force a mutation of browsers as it requires some objects to get it running which needs approval for W3C compliance .  It is the wave of the future at least for now!

Watch how Google wave works!

One of the top 100 blogs in the Philippine Blogosphere and et al.

I just found out today when I revisited RATIFIED.ORG that my site has already jumped from rank#32 to rank#22. This is an interesting development knowing the fact that www.garyviray.com before was nothing in terms of stats and figures needed to be included among the top 100 blogs in the Philippine Blogosphere.

Interestingly enough, My 10-year old son’s everyday computer lesson is paying off. He is making some of my garyviray.com stats to go up whether you believe it or not.

Yes, I am already teaching my son as early as now all the things I know in doing business online so that he will be better equipped a few years from now when he is already on his own. We have an unusual conversation at times being uber-geeky at some point  about IT stuffs online. Most often than not, I am always faced with uber-techie questions such as, “Hey Pa, Why are you teaching me  to ram the RSS feed? What is it for?” or “Pa, What is torrent file all-about? How does it really work?”. It maybe simple for some IT tech guys but for a kid to ask such… that is different.  Of course, Why do I have to teach him to do some “grey hands-on lessons”?! Oh! Basically, I just wanted him to realize the flaws of the system – the Internet and the Web 2.0.

Admittedly, with the emergence of the Web 2.0,  I was able to devise a system to make real money out of it.  But hey, it is not something that you see in the movies like robbing/hacking the bank or something. I was able to know and understand the flaws of the system and so far, it is working rightly for me.

Hmm… Should I not say, flaws? Should I just say, I already have a pretty damn idea on how the World Wide Web works at the background? I think that fits it even better.

Okay, Let me cut this post for now because someone is pinging my ICQ account.  Bye!

Our Deepest Fear – Just setting things straight

I just remembered a poem which was recited by Nelson Mandela during his inauguration speech as the  President Of The Democratic Republic Of South Africa Union Buildings – Pretoria, 10 May 1994.  Oftentimes, he is being credited for the poem but the real fact is that it is written by Marianne Williamson from her book, A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles.

It was also the poem recited from the movie, Coach Carter played by Samuel L. Jackson.

Honestly, it is one of my favorite poems because it sets straight all the misconceptions on humility and courage among all of us. So kindly read the poem, Our Deepest Fear.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Digital Filipino Christmas Party

Oh my! This post is long overdue.

I had a picture taken at the 38th floor of Discovery Suite where Yehey.com headquarter is. Rare photo of me. –>

I attended the Digital Filipino Christmas Party and I was late as usual. I just grabbed two beers just to have things “tick” right on the spot or else my usual shy-type self will simply ruin the night.Opps! But no (sabay bawi), that was only a joke though. I was glad to meet Ada of Adaphobic.com, Jay of TitikPilipino.com and Ms. Micamyx.com

Although I was late, it was fun because the Digital Filipino members are so welcoming and all.  I never witnessed the raffle draw where Ada won the 3G phone. Whew! that girl is such a lucky one. Hey! Ada, they said once you are lucky with raffles, you will never be lucky with love. So beware… but you will have it booted out if you give me your 3G phone? hehe Nambola pa no?

Anyways, I do hope that we can have a repeat of such wonderful occasion together with the known, Ms. Janette Toral of DigitalFilipino.com.
