Web Standards Philippines Event Brewing

There’s something good that materialized in the aftermath of last week’s very successful WordCamp Philippines 2008.

After my talk on Web Standards & WordPress, the bloggers who initiated a Web Standards Philippines movement several months ago were spurred into action and the inspiration to hold a camp-like activity focused on building the web– web standards, web design, semantic web, design principles, usability, accessibility, were some of the topics to be put forward.

The funny thing about this initiative is that it started out as a Plurk discussion and then people got riled up and the next thing you know, we had a meeting last night to architect what could be the first major web focused camp-type event in the Philippines. Present during the first meeting were Ia Lucero, Mae Paulino, Joni Ang, Sarah Cada, Marco Palinar and Jolo Santos and I felt that the group wanted the event to happen. The camp is initially pegged at the first quarter of 2009.
