Jun Verzola

Jun Verzola is the Wiki Name 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 Language Thesaurus Scheme for Philippine languages. This Thesaurus was for a time hosted by www.philthesaurus.schtuff.com , now defunct. Verzola maintains a test-bed wiki site for topics on Philippine history and geography, wiki.iraia.net .

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 General And Particular, and follow up with Objects And Processes. How tenuous could I be.)

I've added Quantity And Quality (as of March 19, 2013).

[Note by Jun: I'll add more to this Home Page 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 Pattern Language. 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 Wards Wiki. For an introduction I would recommend you start with the links on New User Pages.
