GenSan Hosts Mindanao Bloggers Summit 2 in October 2008

A temporary MBS 2 semi-poster designed by Sir Ariel Lalisan

General Santos City, fresh on its bid to become the Convention Capital of Region XII, will be the site of the biggest gathering of bloggers everywhere in the island - the 2nd Mindanao Bloggers Summit or MBS 2, for short.

NAME OF EVENT:
The 2nd Mindanao Bloggers Summit (MBS 2)


THEME:
Mindanawan: Paminawon Intawon. Blogging the Mindanao Consciousness

DATE:
October 25, 2008, Saturday, during the GenSan E-Business Week of the DTI and the city government.

This came after the organizers of the 1st Mindanao Bloggers Summit held last September in Davao City led by Blogie Robillo, and his group, The Usual Suspects, felt it was time for the Tuna Capital to take the lead.

The Socsksargen Bloggers have been thinking about it ever since Mark Aethen Agana of Koronadal, spearheaded a SOCCSarGen Blog Seminar last February which gathered almost two hundred participants at the Notre Dame of Marbel University.

The positive response of young people from Socsksargen to that seminar led me and seminar speakers Hecky MiƱoza, Bro. Vince Celeste, FMS, Sir Ariel Lalisan, together with Gensan Trade portal owners Job and Liezl Oberio, photobuff Toto Lozano, Website designer Dennis Paul Custorio, and teacher Sandra Bonrusto to go a step higher - host an even bigger event, this time to be held in GenSan.

The 1st Mindanao Bloggers Summit in Davao drew more than 150 participants and so to reach that record, we have invited nationally-famous bloggers (along with Mindanao-based personalities) to make up the exciting list of resource speakers.

One who confirmed to be talking on the summit is the Inquirer columnist and Cable TV’s The Explainer, Manuel L. Quezon III himself that “It would be an honor to attend, please let me know the details.”

And since this is GenSan, the Tuna Capital of the Philippines, our culmination activity will be the most-sought after among visitors, the SASHIMI NIGHT!

Now, if those aren’t more than enough reasons to be in GenSan, for the 2nd Mindanao Bloggers Summit on October 25, 2008 I really don’t know what else will be.

National Programming Contest will be on October, last year it fell on that date October 23-25! i hope i could attend the summit!...

Aethen said...

@spiderman - will try to attend if im free. Saan ba ang venue?

Spiderman said...

Actually, there is no communication yet from the CSP (Computing Society of the Philippines), but from last year's contest, it will be every October 3rd week. Last year's venue was the DLSU Canlubang Campus. Probably, this year, it will be at DLSU Taft or Canlubang Campus still. This is a preparation for Asia Programming Contest to represent Philippines on December of the same year. In Mindanao, there were 3 universities which participated the contest, MSU-IIT, AdDU, and UIC. We have competed well last year and we landed in the top 10 (the 3 schools from Mindanao, bested some of the well known universities in LUzon and NCR)out of 24 universities in the Philippines.
