I just finished my talk about Wikipedia here at Lipa City Colleges.  I'm here with fellow Wikimedians, Mozilla PH reps, Microsoft and Phil-IT.  My icebreaker before my talk Gangnam Style stop dance. Winners got Wikipedia shirts.  I'm currently sitting in the breakout session of Microsoft.  Microsoft discusses about Windows 8, Microsoft Office 2013 and Visual Studio 2012.

I'm currently in Hong Kong airport. In less than two hours, I'll be boarding a flight going to the Holy Land. I'll be attending Wikimania 2011 and of course follow the path where Jesus walked.

Hmmm...I hope this will attract more editors if it goes on live.
 
You've all been waiting for this: Our VisualEditor, which will soon revolutionize the editing experience on Wikipedia, is now available for alpha testing.

Yes, she wants Wikipedia to be more user-friendly or non-techie friendly.

In less than 13 hours, the English Wikipedia will be blocked out globally to protest SOFA and PIPA.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:SOPA_initiative#How_SOPA_will_hurt_the_free_web_and_Wikipedia

"SOPA has earned the dubious honor of facilitating Internet censorship in the name of fighting online infringement. The Wikimedia Foundation opposed that legislation, but we should be clear that Wikimedia has an equally strong commitment against copyright violations. The Wikimedia community, which has developed an unparalleled expertise in intellectual property law, spends untold hours ensuring that our sites are free of infringing content. In a community that embraces freely-licensed information, there is no room for copyright abuses."

Story
Tagline
I am a traveler just like you, passing to this temporal plane. Come and let us discover the world as we take a trip in this journey called life.
Introduction
Joseph "Jojit" Ballesteros is a Systems Analyst/Web Developer by profession and Education Ministry Head of the Flock of the Holy Spirit Catholic community in Pasig City, Philippines, where he regularly gives inspiring speeches.  Since January 1, 2014, he became one of the Elders, as the Men's Servant, of the Flock of the Holy Spirit community.

He is also one of the founders of Wikimedia Philippines, a recognized chapter of Wikimedia Foundation, and one of the members of the initial Board of Trustees.  He was the interim Vice President from April 12, 2010 to May 15, 2010. In May 15, 2010, he was elected Vice President by the Wikimedia Philippines' Board of Trustees. His term was supposed to expire on May 22, 2011 but it was extended because the election of officers was delayed and moved to July 9, 2011. He became the President of Wikimedia Philippines as the result of that election and his term expired on June 2, 2012. As a member of the Board of Trustees, his term expired on June 15, 2013.  Aside from being active in the Wikimedia Philippines, Jojit has been contributing to Wikipedia, one of the online projects of Wikimedia, since September 2004.  He is active in both English and Tagalog editions of Wikipedia.  In the Wikimedia movement, he actively promotes its goals in schools and conferences in the Philippines specifically giving presentations about Wikimedia projects and free culture in general.

Jojit was born in Pasig City and grew up there.  He finished Bachelor in Computer Data Processing Management at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines.  He is married and currently living in Paco, Manila.  His interests include any kind topic under sun and beyond.  He also likes to travel and rediscover the Philippines.
