The internet though open to abuse by a small minority opened a lot of doors to increased knowledge. The Vibal Foundation , for instance where I am working on a part-time capacity pioneered projects in open knowledge, based on the premise that knowledge should be participatory and creativity shared for the benefit of all. I am sure there are many worthy online sites that deliver the same premise but I have first-hand experience with these sites before I worked with the foundation, such as Filipiniana.net a digital library and institutional repository, the WikiPilipinas, an online, free content encyclopedia that aims to be the best resource for information on the Philippines on the internet. Lastly, there is the E-Turo a free e-learning portal where Filipino teachers and learners can interact for effective teaching and learning. E-Turo contains a large archive of educational materials that users can download, share, modify, and print. It addresses basic, alternative, and continuing education. These are worthy projects that will benefit a lot of Filipinos. I cannot stress enough the value of information like these that are now accessible to the Filipino netizens.
Continued vigilance needed for #betterinternet in the Philippines
