Ateneo ACOMM Social Media Summit

Social media is fun, and it’s a powerful tool that’s changing the way we work and play. Just as any tool, however, it can be misused and abused, depending on the person deploying it.

That’s why I’m glad that the Ateneo Association of Communication Majors (ACOMM) is holding its first Social Media Summit, with Yahoo! Philippines as its online partner.

I’m one of the speakers, and I’m honored to be in the company of Maria Ressa, Pilar Pedrosa Pilar, Jim Paredes, Ivan Henares, Candice Montenegro, and Rowena Azada-Palacios.

Here’s ACOMM’s 2011 Social Media Summit video.

$2.16 million for Action Comics 1

That’s a lot of money for a comic book! Then again, it’s an almost pristine copy of the legendary comic book where Superman first made his appearance.

This sets the record for the most money ever fetched by a single comic book in an auction.

It’s the first time a comic book has broken the $2 million barrier. The issue was published in 1938 and cost just 10 cents.

“When we broke the record in 2010 by selling the Action Comics No. 1, graded at 8.5, for $1.5 million, I truly believed that this was a record that would stand for many years to come,” said Stephen Fishler, CEO of and Metropolis Collectibles.
