I'm in Kuala Lumpur for a couple of days this week, serving as moderator for a panel discussion at the APEC SME Technology Entrepreneur Seminar.Themed "Innovation and technology: the sustaining power of SMEs in the global economic crisis", most of the presentations and keynotes urged the need for small businesses in the region to continue to innovate, in spite of the economic climate.
I'm not sure if the situation is similar in other countries, but the technology companies we've come to know as ISPs (Internet service providers) are in danger of becoming obsolete in the Philippines.William Bill Torres, the "Father of the Philippine Internet" and co-founder of Mozcom, and the country's first ISP, discussed this predicament during the recent APRICOT technical conference when he said ISPs are no longer what they used to be.
Before boarding my Philippine Airlines flight to San Francisco last Sunday night, a document inspector at the Centennial Airport in Manila, upon learning that I'm a journalist, asked if I was covering the U.S.

After a blur of a long weekend in Dublin, Ireland, I'm replaying in my mind the course of events that took place at Mashup Camp Dublin and the great many new and old friendships that I and the rest of the Mashup Camp team either started fresh or nurtured.When Mashup Camp founder Doug Gold and I first started talking about taking Mashup Camp to Europe, I honestly think both of us were privately thinking that the other one was crazy.

i'm heading out to San Diego in the morning to attend the DEMOfall 2006 event. This will be my second DEMO event and the lineup of companies looks very intriguing this time around.
Yesterday, I wrote about how Gartner appeared to be stooping to new lows in order to drum up attendance for its events by making it appear as though the email invitations to those events were written and signed by its analysts (I provided an example). As it turns out (see the update to that blog post), Gartner's marketing department was essentially forging the "signatures" of its analysts without the analysts' knowledge.
Ever since attending my first Gartner Symposium (a little less than a month after 9/11/01.... my flights were empty), I've been subject to a barrage of emails and snail-mails from Gartner's marketing department inviting me to attend the myriad events run annually by the research outfit.
