Launching of DefCon Philippines

Posted by Jaime Raphael Licauco, CISSP, GSEC on November 24, 2008

Soft Launching of Defcon Philippines (DC3662) will be on Dec 20, 2008 with a half day event (1-6PM) at Handuraw, 460 Gorordo Avenue, Cebu City.

For more info, check out www.defconph.org.
There’s also great info in their blog section. They will be sponsored by opononline and Empress of Drac.

A couple of Blogs about this event:

  • Beyond the norms
  • cebubloggers
  • Third Wave

  • Since I posted something about Social Networks and the Philippines probably around a week back, you might want to check out the Pinoy Post Blog by Melvin Calimag over at ZDNetAsia who recently wrote an informative article about the same topic.

    Since the author seems to be one of the few writers on IT in the Philippines, I googled him and came upon this interesting article written around the start of this year.
