Captured Moments

GK Village in Dingalan, Aurora

This is one of my favorite photos that I took with my trusty (and unnamed) Sony Cybershot digital camera. This was taken summer of 2006 at Barangay Caragsacan, Dingalan, Aurora, during our 2006 GK Youth Summer Build. Believe it or not, the year before that, that line of houses weren’t even painted fully yet, which is why the time we went back, it was such a pleasure to see that the community is thriving.

Back in college during my YFC days, I was usually assigned as the official photographer/documenter of our activities since I was the VP for Documentations. That was why I usually hold most of the digital cameras. The thing with being in this position is that you take all the pictures but you are not in the pictures. Then again, I’m not much of a picture person (especially if it’s solo), so I don’t really mind. That much. :P

I haven’t been using much of our digital camera nowadays because I sometimes find it a hassle to bring around. Although to be honest, I kind of regret not bringing it around because there are certain moments that just have to be captured, you know? Like when you and your friends are eating out and talking, or when you see a dress that you like but don’t have money to buy yet, or when you suddenly see a celebrity out of nowhere — photo opps! Those kinds of things. It may not be a powerful dSLR like my teammate uses; it doesn’t have to take a really powerful camera to capture a moment, right? Well, at least not always. ;)

I must learn to start carrying my camera always, donchathink?

Thoof Your Personalized News

There is this one commercial for a local credit card which shows a rocker chick who is also a bookworm, a dedicated mom who is also a boxer, and the like. The commercial stresses that the company knows their clients personally, based on the purchases they made with the credit card. It’s cool how this personalization is done for most of the things we use right now, like the way Thoof delivers personalized news. Unlike other Web 2.0 applications, Thoof does not ask the members to rate the articles they read if it is good or not. Once an article is clicked, Thoof takes note of the clicked article, putting it as a part of your profile. If you think the article is not interesting, you can click on the “not interesting” link and it disappears from your profile. You may also add articles, share articles through email, edit some posts and vote if the changes done to other posts are correct. You may also choose to hide some articles instead of reading them and marking it not interesting.

I think Thoof is a cool way to personalize the news that you read, so you’ll only read things that are of your interest. Personalization at its best. :)
