Hosted by Georgina Wilson, Gino Quillamor, Miggy Chavez (Chicosci) and Petra Mahalimuyak. The dynamic between the four made for a fun, quirky, yet decidedly relevant and weighty credibility for the evening, made light of course with the self deprecating and all too familiar comedic slant of Mikey Bustos.
It was really inspiring to see the movers and shakers in the online community and blogosphere. The roster of local internet hotshots was relatively complete, lifestyle, fashion, tech, sports, video, photography, and video-slinging (a category) were well represented. Twitter feeds, blogs, and social network sites were abuzz with the nominees, and their supporters campaigning for the top spot in their respective categories.
Delicious food was prepared by Cibo di M that paired perfectly with live performances by Robby Mananquil’s new band (great instrumental set), Chicosci, Up Dharma Down, Rico Blanco, Mikey Bustos, and power balladeer Arnel Pineda. Towards dessert, a thought provoking speech delivered so casually and enthusiastically by Gang Badoy reset the tone for the evening and reminded us that we all have a huge responsibility on how one must behave online and not to abuse our sudden stature or newfound platforms. Wise words we could all learn from. I instantly thought netiquette but I did not dare say it out loud out of fear of being dated by the term.
