TechPinas Celebrates 15th Anniversary With Gratitude and Hope

Dearest TechPinas Friends, Readers, Subscribers, Partners, and Supporters,

Peace and all good!

Fifteen years ago, I embarked on a journey that was fueled by a burning passion for technology and a desire to share that passion with the world through blogging and content creation.

Today, as I reflect on the incredible odyssey that has been, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. This 15th anniversary is not just a milestone; it's a testament to the unwavering support and collaboration of so many individuals who have been integral to our success.

First and foremost, I extend my deepest gratitude to God, The Almighty. Without His grace and guidance, the story would never have unfolded and reached its heights. In moments of uncertainty and challenge, faith has been the anchor that has steadied our ship. This anniversary is as much a celebration of divine providence as it is a celebration of technology.

To my family, my inspiration and the pillar of my strength behind the scenes, thank you. Your understanding, patience, and constant support have been the bedrock upon which stands. Late nights, weekends, many trips across the country and abroad for tech event coverage, and the demands of running a growing platform were made bearable because of the love and sacrifices of my family. My younger brother, Val Marvin Macanas of, has also graciously covered tech events on my behalf whenever I couldn't be there myself. My mom and had who have allowed me to follow my passions and have completely supported me in every step of the way; This anniversary belongs to them as much as it belongs to me.
