Mostly Everything

It’s All Mike Abundo’s Fault!

A few days ago I was in search of a new blogger to take over the helm of the b5media “2.0 and friends” blog Emerging Earth. As Jason Bean has become more focused on his other blogs on the network, EE was up for grabs. Now anyone can write about Web 2.0 and why it matters. But in truth I wanted a tongue in cheek, foot in mouth, hand in your pocket blogger personality who can really make the top spin when it came to this topic.

I searched far and wide for days, interviewing people from around the world … and it turned out that the person I was searching for lived a few kilometers from where I worked. So hello Mike, welcome to b5media. 🙂

The bloggers here at b5media all seem like very nice people. I am not. I have been called everything from a “digital extremist” to a “cyberterrorist”. I live in a country ruled by neo-Luddites who control people by limiting technology and spreading ignorance. In retaliation, I have dedicated my career to accelerating the global transformations brought by emerging technologies. – Mike Abundo | Emerging Earth

I still remember his most famous soliloquy which he gave during the SEO PH awarding ceremony last year … “If you cannot be searched, you do not exist.”

And so there he is. I found a new blogger for Emerging Earth, and it’s all Mike Abundo’s fault!
