is the WikiName
of Pio Verzola Jr., a Filipino activist and journalist-researcher with experience in database programming and website management. He was mostly based in the Cordillera region of Northern Luzon, Philippines in the past 25 years (1984-2009), with stints in a few other places within the same period. He has worked with Northern Dispatch Weekly and Radio Sagada (in its preparatory phase). Since then, he has worked with GMA Network, a leading broadcast network in the Philippines, and IBON, an international NGO focused on capacity development for social movements.
In 2005, Verzola started a wiki on this site for building a LanguageThesaurusScheme
for Philippine languages. This Thesaurus was for a time hosted by http://www.philthesaurus.schtuff.com
, now defunct. Verzola maintains a test-bed wiki site for topics on Philippine history and geography, http://wiki.iraia.net/mw
In 2012, Verzola returned to this site to re-explore its possible uses as a sandbox for his iraia.net test-bed site. (So you could say my homepage here is a test-bed for a test-bed site. I'm looking at possibilities of using this site for my explorations into philosophy, language, information, and maybe social sciences or history. Still not sure. I'll start with GeneralAndParticular
, and follow up with ObjectsAndProcesses
. How tenuous could I be.)
I've added QuantityAndQuality
(as of March 19, 2013).
[Note by Jun: I'll add more to this HomePage
as I familiarize myself with this wiki community. And, by the way, one of the things that interested me to learn wiki is its origins in PatternLanguage
. I have read Christopher Alexander's A Pattern Language
and The Timeless Way of Building
. I think they apply to other fields of creative endeavor, not to mention life processes.]
Hi Jun, and welcome to WardsWiki. For an introduction I would recommend you start with the links on NewUserPages.
