ONE person consumes cable television and internet content in many ways that are not necessarily the same with another person. My mother watches Pinoy blockbuster movies on Cinema One. My nephew likes the Disney Channel. Many friends of mine tend to build their gimmick schedule around NBA games. I keep up with international news on CNN. We gather in front of the tube when Manny Pacquiao is slugging it out for multi-million dollars on pay-per-view.

Facebook opens many windows for us to see what a friend is having for dinner, memes to make us smile, inspiring quotes, a disturbing rant, fake news, and links to viral videos. YouTube presents the latest and archaic music videos, educational channels, DIY projects, and even rare movies from different eras.

The world has been expanding and shrinking at the same time – depending on one’s perspective. We can now compete against other video gamers from different parts of the world, teach and learn online on a one-to-one basis, and also find a “significant other” candidate on certain sites.

The techie lifestyle of the post-millennials and the coolness of the baby boomers converge every now and then because of the available tools that even the rebels in the mountains could enjoy.
