Contribute to the Philippine Internet Review #phnet20 Project - DigitalFilipino E-Commerce Boot Camp by Janette Toral

Contribute to the Philippine Internet Review #phnet20 Project

phnet20This campaign is for the creation and publication of the 2nd edition of the Philippine Internet Review: 20 years of Philippine Internet History (2004 to 2014).

10 years ago, we published the book “Philippine Internet Review: 10 Years of Internet History (1994 – 2004)“. As the Internet in the Philippines celebrated its 20th year this 2014, I decided to embark on a project in updating its content reflecting on developments from 2004 to 2014. Will also cover other areas that we may have missed or needs to be corrected in our first edition.

I was fortunate enough to witness the early years of the Internet in the Philippines. When it reached its 10 years last 2004, a lot of things have happened. We witnessed the initial rise and crash of the dotcom. I believe in the importance of documenting it to help researchers and Internet entrepreneurs learn from the past.

By the time we released the publication in September 2004, social networking and social media began entering our Internet culture. A lot of exciting stuff has happened since and amazing growth has happened to date.

As we reached the 20th year this 2014, I decided to embark again on this project to document the 20th year. Internet users who will be helping out in this project will become part of an “Internet Historians Community” and help in setting up a process to ensure that work will continue for #phnet30.

Your support to this project will be of great help to future Internet historians, e-commerce advocates, start-up entrepreneurs, and students who would like to learn the evolution of the Internet in the Philippines.
