DigitalFilipino.com Turns 3! (2002)

Despite the non-stop rain followed by a heavy traffic jam last Tuesday (September 17), the DigitalFilipino 3rd Anniversary Party were still jam-packed at the Penthouse of Trader's Hotel. Joined by the active members of the DigitalFilipino mailing lists and supporters for the continuing improvement of information technology here in the country.

Because of the terrible traffic I only catched the talk/Q&A of Ms. Janette Toral and Ms. Sacha Chua. Sacha explained how her team in Ateneo won in the WorldWide Microsoft ".Net Best" competition as the best academic solution, Bayanihan Computing .NET, a generic grid computing framework that uses Web services to enable PCs to act as a "virtual supercomputer". Aside from that Sacha showed her wearable technologies and explained how it makes her life easier!

TG Limcaoco of MyAyala.com and Grace Dimaranan of Top Peg Animation & Creative Studio Inc. were also put in the hot seat that night.

Kudos to Janette Toral and to the DigitalFilipino Community!
