Read or Die (RoD) Convention Images

The Read or Die (RoD) Convention 2007 was held at the Hotel Intercon Manila last Feruary 3 and 4. As I wrote earlier, I volunteered my services because I do believe in what they are advocating and it's for a good cause. Here are some images I got from the convention.

I can say the convention was a success. The people I worked with were a nice bunch of guys and gals and I enjoyed working with them. I also hope this will be an annual event so I can volunteer again.
