One of the things I highly enjoy doing at work is creating little images for the UPITDC-prompted radio show E-Talakayan, which airs every Wednesday from 1-2pm on DZUP 1602. DZUP is the University of the Philippines' radio station located in the Diliman campus, and it has limited reach. It can't go further away than the general Manila area, so for those in far-flung provinces (like my parents :D), they can listen to DZUP online on their Weebly link.

E-Talakayan recently celebrated its first anniversary last Wednesday, Nov 7 2012. The hosts, Sarah "Joy" Salvio and Mario Carreon, gave us one hour of reminiscence and a preview of things to come for the show, plus a lot of freebies and giveaways for the listeners.

Since the show started running November of last year, a variety of IT topics have been discussed and shared with the listeners. Some of these topics include careers in IT, internet security, IT in the Philippines, computer graphics, gaming and almost everything under the sun when it comes to information technology. The show even had a discussion on how the internet and social media sites are affecting the society in unexpected ways, from helping out in disasters (like the recent Habagat floods) to spreading news, whether in a positive or negative way. I, being a media student, was of course intrigued by how IT really has worked its way deep in the cogs of the present time. I both marvel and fear at what it could bring in the years to come.

Aside from talking about the planned topics for the show, there is also the IT Trivia section, wherein the hosts and the guests share current trends and technologies, from new software developments to technical advice on gadgets emerging in the market. For the uninitiated, it's a welcome segment because it is able to relay these kinds of information in an understandable format. Heck, that's the whole thrust of the show, "kung saan ang IT ay hindi pang-eksperto lamang, kundi kaalamang nailalapit sa bayan."

Anyway, I'm really glad to be part of the show's production, and I do hope it gets to be of service to more people in the future :)
