I'm planning to create a website/portal for Basilan equipped with updates/news about that provinces with the help of the community journalist from different schools in that area ("hope there would be a lot of community contribution"). Currently I'm still planning the site using wordpress and launch by January 2010. The site title would be "Basilan At Post" the 1st ever community news portal of Basilan, for beta test i'll be using a sub domain of Mindanao Open Source Society. I'll announce later the sub domain if it is already up.
