Mozilla Philippines at the AMA Web & IT Summit 2010

Web & IT Summit 2010

The AMA Computer University main campus in Quezon City invited Mozilla Philippines at their “WEB & IT SUMMIT 2010: IO Your Info World Wide” The WEB & IT SUMMIT was an event that started last year (2009) by WebGeek Ph together with AMA IT Society of AMA Computer University during the AMA Foundation Week. Now on its second year, Mozilla Philippines is so glad to be part of the event. Our talk was attended by a hundred college students in a small room.

We started by showing a short movie clip of 5 years of Mozilla Firefox and discussed how it resurrected the web in the early browser war of the 90’s. Then the reasons why they should choose Firefox being a open source project with all its goodness like security, speed and customizations. We give away some Mozilla goodies like button pins and T-shirt as prizes for the participants. I got to be  in charge documenting our talk so you can find other photos in my flickr account. One of our mission is to promote the Tagalog version of Firefox. A big emphasis is cited on encouraging everyone to participate in the Firefox localization efforts in the Philippines.  Ending the event with our recruitment for the local community here in the Philippines through our website Mozilla Philippines.

Internet Cafe Based On Diskless Linux And Running Windows Games

There’s a linux program called wine that can run windows applications like photoshop. I don’t have the chance to make it work by following the tutorials. While browsing youtube I found this video of internet cafe based on linux thats capable of running windows game titles from Electronic Arts like left 4 dead and need for speed. The guys are playing it and seems pretty responsive. I’ve also been playing this games but in a windows machine, I’m amazed how they made it working in a linux setup.

The PC setup is pretty cool by the way, no casing just barebones maybe cost and ventilation is the reason. I think this guys are Russians or something based on the user comments. Though we can’t see how they’ve done to make this games work, it inspire me to have this kind of setup.
