Mar Roxas 2010 Blogger interviewed by the Pakistani Spectator

Wednesday, July 16, 2008 | posted in , , , , , | 2 comments

First of all, I'm humbled to be interviewed by blogger Ghazala Khan of The Pakistani Spectator (TPS) in his aim of fostering peace, progress and harmony with passion in the blogosphere. TPS is a blog about politics and entertainment related to Pakistan. The blog is carrying out a new series of interviews with the notable and passionate bloggers, writers, and webmasters and I am glad to be one of those.

Being the first Filipino blogger to be interviewed in their blog, I talked about the impact of blogging here in the Philippines and how it has changed the society. I also talked about my blog and how it has made an impact in the blogosphere.

Here's an excerpt of the interview:

What do you think is the most exciting or most innovative use of technology in politics right now?
It’s the internet. In this world that everyone seems to shift focus from the traditional media to the new ones, politics also has to adopt. We have seen how internet presence translate to awareness just like the success of Barack Obama’s campaign.

Do you think that these new technologies are effective in making people more responsive?
Yes, and I have seen it personally. I thought I was alone with my advocacy at first, but the number of people who have e-mailed me and texted me disproved my thinking. If I can just have one day to mobilize everybody to my advocacy, I believe it would be very productive.

That's interesting. I admire Roxas too for pushing the Cheaper Medicines bill. As of now, although Roxas is on my top list, I have yet to make my mind about actually voting him for President. I have to check other candidate's too.

Hi there Planet Markus. It's OK! I will wait for your decision and as of now, I'm happy that Senator Mar Roxas is in your top list. It's a good sign that the people today are now interested in getting to know more the potential presidential candidates.
