The Internet's 10 Most Influential Filipinos
Ayson is back with W3 Business Communications, an independent consulting business, conducting seminars and speaking engagements in areas related to the Internet, which he has always been known for from the start.
Why he's influential.
"I did a lot of writing and speaking on the subject along with a lot of the other early Net personalities. This early "evangelism" helped to raise awareness early on." For instance, one of the first attendees of a web orientation seminar he gave in 1994 was Mike Marasigan, who is now COO of Businessworld Online.
Vision for the Net.
"For 1999 I am excited about developing two business-to-consumer e-commerce projects under the aegis of PhilMusic and WebMarket. These include PhilMusic Direct, which is a CD retail operation aimed for the overseas market - selling OPM CDs abroad - and CD Manila, which is for the Philippine market, taking orders for specialty imports and used CDs."
"Winning recognition in the Webby awards and being featured in this article is probably one of the best things to happen this year, especially in the light of the combined personal and professional crisis that affected me for the first half of 1998. It was a tremendous honor to be recognized, however it also brings with it a tremendous pressure to excel and go a step further because there is a lot of public scrutiny placed on my work. Hopefully, this will serve more as a challenge and incentive to do better, 'cooler' stuff," Ayson added.
