Two Filipino Blograrians, Von Totanes and Arnold Zafra, are in the list of nominees for this year's Philippine Blog Awards. Well, their blogs are there and not their names. But this is an interesting development in the field of IT dominated by the technocrats. One continuing challenge for us librarains is to to make our presence felt. In an ever changing digital environment, the more we are needed to make meaning out of the chaos; to provide sense in a deluge of information from varied resources; and to perserve intellectual rights and cultural heritage of our peoples.
Von's blog is under the Socio-Political category while Arnold's is in the Technology category. To Von and Arnold, good luck! I hope that you both win in your respective category.
