Philippine's first automated election in the ARMM region

The Philippine government spent some 600 million pesos (US$13.6 million) in its 1st implementation of a computerized election during the last August 11, 2008 ARMM Election. This served as the test-pilot for the country's general elections in 2010.

Mau, you mentioned about ISOC PH, member ako ng ISOC talaga and even get their newsletters. I've attended forums by ISOC in Korea and in the IGF. Pwede ba akong automatic member sa ISOC PH? Magkano kaya babayaran ko? Yun sa APNIC, nandun sila sa forum ng "Transition from IPv4 to IPv6" at na attend ko yun...

Hey Maureen, thanks for the info. I am still thinking about attending the PSITE convention kase paalis ako sa US at hindi ko pa malalaman yun exaktong date. May hinihintay pa akong confirmation. Yun tentative schedule is February eh. My schedule is very unstable nowadays. But gusto ko lang mag pa member because gusto ko sana mag submit ng papers or case studies in the near future. I mean all the topics that I have read so far that were being discussed are really relevant to my teaching experiences. Can you also keep me posted for any developments with PSITE? Thanks ha! Happy New Year, too!
