Five Years of Firefox in Manila

I attended the 5th Firefox anniversary held at the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) in Makati. It was a great place to meet up with fellows from the Mozilla Philippines Community, as well as the Campus Reps from UP Diliman and Colegio de San Juan de Letran Calamba.

I was there to introduce what the Campus Rep program, and to entice people to join up.

Globe was also there introducing some of their new products, minglr and web2mobile. I was impressed by the web2mobile service. Web2mobile allows you to select snippets of text as well as images from your Firefox browser, and send them as an SMS or MMS. Standard rates apply, ₱ 1 per SMS and ₱ 5 per MMS. Unlitext does not apply. =P

Minglr was also there. It's a social aggregation service. I think it would work great when used with a smartphone, so you can post your updates just once and it appears on all of your social networks.

For those who missed the event, here are some pics taken by Aja Lapus and Joell Lapitan.

UPDATE: The Mozilla Philippines Community website was also launched. :)
