Michael Josh Villanueva, Rappler’s TechRap Producer, will be discussing about the future of mobile.
Michael Josh is a thirty-something idealist of Filipino-Malaysian heritage, American-Chinese upbringing and alien-comic book hero origin.
He claims technology is fuel to his superhero DNA, began developing websites in 1998, blogging in 2000, and podcasting in 2004. In 2005, he produced the iTunes featured video podcast “HIT”, one of the first of its kind in the world.
Previous missions took him to broadcast network GMA7, where he spearheaded the company’s social media arm. He jumpstarted its citizen journalism program, YouScoop, and revolutionized transmission and live reporting through digital newsgathering initiatives. He was also an on air talent, covering sports events and producing his own tech segment.
When he’s not pacing down corridors or loading his utility belt with the latest apps or reviewing the latest gadgets, he’s producing the next episode of TechRap or building the next new strategy, aimed at keeping Rappler on the cutting edge of the intergalactic multimedia smackdown.
