I am slowly getting drawn into being involved in the International Open Source Network. It was something that I had known would happen sooner or later, that the UN or one of its agencies, in this case, the UNDP-APDP, would pick up on Free and Open Source Software and its benefits and champion it. And here and now, UP Manila wins the bid as IOSN ASEAN+3 regional node, placing it a bit closer to home.

If all goes well in the next couple of weeks and months, I may be travelling in and out of the country a few times this year to attend training, workshops, conferences and the like.

Eloy Marcelo will be tapping me as an LPI trainer for UPM, which works well with what I want to be able to do, to teach and mentor budding Linux Systems Administrators. Of course, as part of IOSN, it will mean a wider reach now.

There's also a lot of possible collaboration to work on with folk in the ASEAN+3 region, but that needs to be explored further in order to find out what I can be involved in. Since I am already working in translation, that might be my focus.

We'll see how it goes.
