The first face to face meeting of the Phil. Internet Commerce Society (PICS) was held last Feb. 28, 2005 at the Club Cafe of Makati Sports Club. The first meeting was done virtually via web conference. The meeting sponsored by ABS-CBN Interactive represented that evening by the Wireless Business Head Paolo Pineda.
