Although in real life, the Philippines has a new president, it didn’t reflect as such on the Internet. After President Benigno S. Aquino III was sworn in, Malacanang’s website, http://www.op.gov.ph/ still had former president GMA’s face on their home page. Blogger Rico Mossesgeld noticed this and went the extra mile to “suggest” the change to the Malacanang web team through a blog post — with an HTML template of a placeholder while the site remains in construction.
This is Rico’s blog post with suggested HTML code.
This is the Malacanang website now with Rico’s placeholder text and tweaked HTML coding.
So it’s true. The president does listen.
