Calling on all Filipino bloggers to unite for S&T

Filipino bloggers are growing in number, everyday. It’s amazing how we have immediately warmed up to the blogosphere. However, most of the blogs that I encounter are personal blogs, some of them are technoblogs written by technology-savvy individuals. Some bloggers with scientific backgrounds occasionally write posts that are science-related. However, it’s obvious that a blog exclusively about science and technology (S&T), research and development (R&D) has yet to be created.

This blog was created to fill in that vacuum in the blogosphere.

This is a call on all Filipino bloggers whose interests and passion are in S&T, R&D, academe or industry. Let’s blog about how we feel about the scientific and technological advancement in the Philippines. Let’s give a voice to the underrepresented minority of our country.

 And that includes YOU, my friend, the one who’s reading this blog now. 🙂

    Hi! I’ll start this “forum” by asking a question.

    I am a newbie in materials science, so my question is – how do you compute for the band gap energy of a material based on a UV-VIS spectra. It’s probably elementary for most physicist/chemist – unfortunately I am neither!

    Thanks!

    Hi Pomona,

    Thanks for dropping by. I will definitely read your entry especially if it is about DOST. DOST is the S&T arm of the government. So I would like to know what it does for S&T (its action or inaction).

    Cheers!

    Rather than writing blogs, what about writing small open source code projects? Good open source projects gives a lot of credit to any country in my opinion.

    on this way Filipinos could contribute or to have a unique own Science and Research for future generations. because until now – we are always in copycat with other nations science of inventions; in which not applicable to our country. In the long run we can contribute something that can change our country by not borrowing other nation’s knowledge. Furthermore – i hope not only science but also something to do with our Fellow Filipino’s or especially in our country.
