This is the last installment of my Blogapalooza experience last November 18. I made two blogposts on Blogapalooza in general, and the souvenirs that I got from the event. I am sharing to you what transpired during that time. The highlights of Blogapalooza are the talks from different personas of the digital industry.
For starters, I am sharing to you the program flow for Generation D series of talks:
Mr. Kris Ablan shares to us the involvement of the present government with social media, that we bloggers are being encouraged to be a part of it. I think this is very important for people here in the Philippines to be aware of what’s happening in the country, and what President Duterte is doing for the country. He also informs the audience of the plans of the government to have better internet services so that no one is left out in this digital age.
Media practitioners Niccolo Cosme, Anna Oposa, Justin Joyas , and Jayne Uymatiao shared their thoughts on how to effectively use social media to promote awareness and to spread good. They also reminded the audience to exercise due diligence when reading news, and discern whether it’s real or fake.
Up next is the talk on Video Content and Distribution Strategy wherein Micco Solis, Lyqa Maravilla, Gian Viterbo, and Lloyd Cadena share their experience in putting up YouTube videos. Dennis Lim, the moderator, and representative for Adober Studios, shares to the audience what topics are trending in the video world, and videos from Adober Studios YouTube page that made an impact with its countless viewers.
Up next is Mario Domingo , a tech expert, who shares his knowledge on artificial intelligence. I saw a video from ANC 24/7 where anchor Tony Velasquez interviews him. This video helps to make us understand better what artificial intelligence is all about.

Next up are people in the business and agency world Donald Lim, Norman Agatep, Jane Villa and Jason Cruz who share their expertise in the agency, business, and influencer relationships.
Next up are Internet rockstars Ramon Bautista, Louise delos Reyes, Kim Cruz and Joyce Pring. They shared with us their experiences with social media, and how it has help them launch their careers.
A group of mentalists entertained us with their show called Mind Play. They remind me of the things that mentalist David Blaine does. All of their acts blew me away especially the last one wherein he did astral projection. He asks a volunteer to think of a place in her head, and recreate it in her mind where she’s been. Aside from that, he also calls in a medical professional present among the audience to take his vital signs, and announce if it was slowing down and stopping. Then he was able to guess what the girl was thinking, (the place is Saranggani) and even gave her a handful of sand that he got from Saranggani the volunteer was imagining.
Mr. Daniel Meyer shares in a nutshell how analytics help blogger analyze their corresponding blog or video’s reach.
Carlo Ople of unbox.ph shares to us to that in order to be good at something, you need to spend 10,000 hours with it. He encourages us to spend our time wisely, and use that time to be productive, and not waste away doing nothing.
Attorney JJ Disini shares his knowledge on protecting ourselves legally while we use social media.
I am looking forward to future Blogapalooza events. It was a success, and I met new people through this event. My friends Aileen, Johaness, and I took our time to have photos at the venue as well. I enjoyed every minute that I was in here.
