Convenors collective moving ahead for MBS2 victory

THE BIGGEST STORY in the blog business this year has been on the way working on the new media development in Mindanao. The Mindanao bloggers are becoming a hot-selling players on harnessing the social web.

An excellent example of what’s happening out there: WordCamp in the Philippines — the first in Southeast Asia! This event organized by the Davao MB core group -- is catching on in the Philippines bloggers interest using a wordpress platform.

But there’s something going on behind the scenes that may turn out to be far more important than the latest flurry of the emerging influential bloggers in 2008. And, these are the enthusiastic young bloggers of SOCCSKSARGEN, of which I called them the Convenors Collective who’s moving ahead to facilitate the 2nd Mindanao Bloggers Summit to be held in General Santos City this 25th of October 2008.

The Convenors Collective had recently conducted the event-planning workshop in preparation for the forthcoming MBS2. The volunteer-convenors are ensnare in these images as follows: [ click photos to enlarge ]
