Among Ed’s blog launched

“There is a crisis of hope in our country today. Many of our people have lost sight of a better future, consoling themselves of the fact that they are still surviving in the here and now…But by your rants and raves, be voices of hope, upholding the good and condemning the evil with equal force.”

With much optimism for youth involvement in shaping the conscience of the nation, Gov. Panlilio, more popularly known as Among Ed, led the launching of his blogsite (www.amonged.org/blog) before a young crowd from the Manila-based Bloggers’ Kapihan and the Pampanga Youth Council. The event was held on June 7 (Saturday) at the Executive House of the Pampanga Provincial Capitol.

In the forum that preceded the launching, Jhay Rocas, a Bloggers’ Kapihan Crew and youth leader from De La Salle University-Dasmariñas spoke on blogging for good governance. “While good governance is a relatively new concept in Philippine politics and we have yet to really experience it,” he said, “we get glimpses of it every now and then in leaders like Among Ed. With the emergence of a new media (through blogging and the net), we now have greater access to information and people are more free to express their opinions and sentiments.” He added that the internet is not just for entertainment and recreation but also for involvement in serious matters like good governance. Angelica Guevarra, a youth leader from the Pampanga Youth Council also spoke on responsible citizenship.

Among Ed’s blogsite project was conceptualized in April as soon as the priest-turned-governor’s campaign website went off-line. In response to public clamor for news and updates about Among Ed and his leadership of Pampanga, volunteers from the Creative Team and the Kapampangan Marangal. Inc. (KMI) worked to transform the campaign website to a more dynamic and interactive

“Blogging has, in recent years, emerged as a primary means of self-expression among individuals all over the world, most especially the youth. It is an excellent way of getting people to reflect and discern on matters affecting their lives. The idea of maximizing its potentials to influence others about important concerns such as politics and social development is fast gaining ground in the midst of various crises confronting societies here and elsewhere. It is essential for the one who governs and the ones being governed to communicate and engage in a frequent dialogue to make good governance happen,” says KMI Executive Director Averell Laquindanum. Among Ed is believed to be the first Governor in the country to open and launch a blogsite.

Yesterday’s launching was a joint undertaking of KMI and the Provincial Capitol, in cooperation with Bloggers’ Kapihan, Pampanga Youth Council, Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co., and the University of the Assumption. (KMI)

    Among Ed is surely one of the people’s answer to the moral bankruptcy that is certainly ripping the country apart. More power to you and may your tribe increase.

    May official blog ba ang philippine government? Tinitignan ko yung http://www.gov.ph pero wala ako makitang link sa blog (kung meron). Siguro pwede rin natin i-suggest sa bloggers’ kapihan na hikayatin din ang gobyernong mag-blog since sinimulan na rin naman nilang mahikayat sina lozada at panlilio 😀 Baka lang naman pupwede. May official website na rin naman eh kaya siguro panahon na rin para mag-blog din sila tulad ng U.S. government blog (http://blog.usa.gov).

    Bloggers’ kapihan, next prospect… Philippine Gov’t 😉 suggestion lang po hehehe

    Natawa naman ako. Hehehe.

    Anyway, such an idea should first answer some prejudicial questions: Is the government prepared to listen to the people through a blog? Is it honest enough as to use a blog for government-to-people communications? Will it tell the truth? May track record ba sila for honesty, transparency, credibility and integrity?

    That’s just my personal take. Let’s see what the others in BK think.

    hmmm… Let’s just give them the benefit of the doubt. malay natin hehe. Kung hindi man sa arroyo gov’t eh baka pwedeng yung mga susunod na administration na lang siguro.

    Pwede rin sigurong blog naman ng senate or congress o kaya blog ng supreme court 😀 Kapag mauso na rin sa kanila siguro eh magsusunuran na yang mga yan. Sana! Kung lahat ng senador mag-blog pati lahat ng congressman… abah eh di ba napakaraming political bloggers nyan hehehe.

    I am sure that there are bloggers who are under the payroll of Malacanang. Most of them would be reporting directly to the office of Secretary Bunye or his subordinates. The only problem they have is they cannot really come up with their own personal thoughts to write about because they have a script to follow.

    When I read a post, all it takes is by reading the first three sentences they already show where they are coming from. They never deal on issues but rather they concentrate on the credibility of the person in question. They come and go using different names but always spousing the same ideas. They are fond of cut and paste and they always repeat themselves.

    More often than not, they will attack the personalities of those bloggers who do not agree with them. They always love to pick up a fight if only to introduce chaos and sow disorder in the forum.

    It is always an advantage if we are aware who we are dealing with, for victory wil be ours if we already know who our enemies are!
