Sometimes, you have to demo a threat to spark a solution.-Barnaby Jack, 1977-2013

Tuguegarao Conference, or TCON for short, is the first ever hacking conference in the Northern Philippines and will be launched on December 14, 2014 by hackthenorth.ph, a non-profit organization founded by an awesome crew of genuinely hospitable ilocanos and ybanags.

We are offering a chance to win a FREE ticket for the event, 1 way premium bus ride and an overnight lodging; all priced at 3,500.00PHP. What’s the catch? A T-shirt.

See, it’s a classic win-win situation. Your generosity will go a long way! Trust us on this, you just might bump with someone wearing the same shirts you donated us.

PisoPalit is proud to support Project Pala’wan (fb group). Project Pala’wan will help 46 indigenous learners of Bolnok Learning Center located at Sitio Bolnok, Malis, Brooke’s Point Palawan. They are just one of the many recipients who will get to wear your shirts!

PisoPalit is also proud to be part of the TCon Event and HackTheNorth organization. Hackers and charities. Quite the contrary, you ask? Not really, it sounds more like a metaphor to us. See in the hacker community, they have this practice called full disclosure (making vulnerabilities known to the public). Controversial yet charitable in its very essence. We support them. Had they kept these exploits within themselves, they would have sounded more like selfish cyberpunks. Those are the kinds we tend to avoid.

Hackers make good citizens and they must be seen in a new light. We cannot stress it enough than how Ms. Keren Elazari said and we quote:

I think it’s time we take a good look at how we choose to portray them, because if we keep expecting them to be the bad guys, how can they be the heroes too?-Keren Elazari, Cybersecurity Expert

Watch her interesting Ted Talk below. One of our favorites!

Don’t forget to share your shirts and get a chance to win a ticket to TCON 2014 on the 14th of December to be held at La Luna Grill, Tuguegarao City, Cagayan. Learn more of the Event by visiting hackthenorth.ph or their facebook community page here. Offer ends on Dec 10, 2014 and the winner will be declared. You can continue to share your shirts until the end of the month.

it’s a great honor and privilege for us to be part of an organization that has such great advocacy!

    I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one these days.

      Thank you Berniece! We customized the theme ourselves so that it matches well with the site’s design. We’re glad you appreciate our blog even though it is still in its infancy.

    Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?

    I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any help is very much appreciated.
