Forum on Filipino Blogosphere & Political Participation

Got this heads up from fellow blogger and web safety advocate Sonnie Santos and since it’s open to the public, I might was well give it more buzz.

There would be a forum on “The Filipino Blogosphere: Political Expression, Communication, and Participation” on February 26 (Sat), 10:00 AM at the Case Room, G/F National College of Public Administration and Governance (NCPAG), University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City, where Ms Mary Grace P. Mirandilla-Santos will be presenting the results of her study* on A-List Filipino political bloggers and their readers: motivation, political attitude and modes of political participation.

There will also be a discussion on related topics, such as blogging and the Filipino identity, political expression and communication, and journalism. Other speakers include Dr. Erwin Alampay, Prof. Danilo Arao, Ms. Stephanie Rabia, and Mr. Juned Sunido.

Again this open to the public so for those interested to attend you can get in touch with Ms Mirandilla-Santos via her email: mg[dot]mirandilla[at]gmail[dot]com

I won’t be able to attend because of a theater rehearsal. No kidding. Anyways, for those who would be attending, have a fun and productive forum.
