Globe Telecom Inc. chief legal counsel and senior advisor Rodolfo Salalima, one of the country’s telco pillars, has written a new book titled “Telecommunications in the Information Revolution.”
Salalima’s book aims to help ordinary readers comprehend current technologies on telecommunications, broadcasts and disruptive innovations. “I hope that this may help influence others in understanding these technologies or contribute in the utilization of these technologies not only as tools for better social networking and communications but also, for nation building and growth,” Salalima said.
The book is a compilation of the law and jurisprudence on telecommunications and of insights on the evolving language and fundamental issues of the Internet revolution. “We now live in the era of ‘digital freedom of expression ‘ characterized by the obtrusive, invasive and seemingly omnipotent Internet and some other current or emergent technologies whose use can make or unmake individuals, societies, corporations and governments,” Salalima said.
Salalima is the president of the Philippine Chamber of Telecommunications Operators; chief legal counsel and spokesperson of Globe Telecom; and vice chairman of the International Telecommunication Union Council working group for the amendment of the ITU Constitution and Convention, where he represents the Asia-Pacific region.
