TGIF with PhilMUG on a Monday and the Day the Comics Started


As mag:net was undergoing renovations, PhilMUG moved its meet up to Friday’s, which just opened at the Bonifacio High Street, near Serendra. Manila is such a small place. And yet we have an abundance of Macintosh user groups (aside from PhilMUG, there’s also PinoyMAC and Alamug) as well as other geek niche clubs for other operating systems, software developers, and photography. Not to mention the bloggers.


I love the Philippine “geek community.” Not only do most of them know each other, but the community has always been supportive of members in their crazy antics. That’s partly the reason why I’m crazy. They’re crazy-er.


The Mac community in particular became a good “testing ground” for my one panel comics which I post every so often in this blog. Here is the thread that started it all. The date of the first post was back in July 2005. These comics were produced using Comic Life. As you can see from my avatar, I was still young-ish looking. Heh.
