Senator Juan Edgardo Angara at the 2nd day of the National ICT Summit 2015 held at the Hotel Intercontinental Manila from June 23 to 24.
The senator made the keynote speech for the 2nd day and tackled the DICT Bill which proposes to setup a dedicated department in the government to manage ICT requirements in the country.
"Nakakatawa" to again mention how poor our Internet speed ("mabagal at di mapagkatiwalaan na Internet service sa bansa") and stating that we are placed at the 176th position out of 202 countries according to the Ookla household download index. "Hindi po natin pwedeng ipagmalaki 'to" according to Angara. Pati na rin ang pagiging 19th place of the Philippines for viewing the most Internet porn.
"Nakakatuwa" that even the issue about the Valkyrie dance club regarding its antiquated "No Crossdressing Policy" was also mentioned to stress how viral issues similar to it are more prominent online.
"Hell hath no fury like a person whose gender identity has been scorned and whose Twitter account has many followers."
True enough, the Filipinos are more popular backing up online sports figures like Manny Pacquiao or celebrities like the KathNiel love tandem. They tweet, post, share, and do everything on social media until they favorite personalities goes viral or trending.
I wish we could be as passionate for more urgent and critical concerns and issues of the country.
