Twenty years ago, who would have thought that a technology that has become a way of life  would originate in ?

On March 29, 1994, it was in Cebu where the Philippine internet was connected to the world wide web.

In celebration of the 20th year of the Internet in the Philippines,

The commemoration was held in Cebu Grand Hotel last March 29, 2014.

Participants came from all walks of life: students, media personalities, businessmen, and company representatives. All were eager to know more about how to benefit from the immense power of the internet.

Renowned speakers were invited to share their knowledge to the attendees, including TenMinutes.PH’s founder, Jonji Gonzales.

Gonzales was joined by Max Limpag of Innopub Media, Kevin Ray Chua of Cebu Bloggers Society and Janette Toral of Digital Filipino.
