Recalling milestones

Camiguin has come a long way since the telephone network started operation in February 12, 1994.  Today, Facebook, YouTube, Yahoo and countless others have become a buzzword of the island. Through the Internet, it brought Camiguingnons living abroad closer to their home province. Photos are shared in seconds. There’s excitement. This is a milestone.  In a few years, with more providers coming in, it becomes a common thing. Nothing special.

Just right before the project inauguration, the late GTZ consultant, Heinz Pomplun said: “You know, people are very excited today. But in a few years, it will be a thing of the past. Very common.”.   He’s right because I sense people even forget about who made this project possible.  So I’m sharing what I can recall.
