Those IPhil Days

At the SEO Philippines event, some of the people knew me from my Internet days. Just today, I bumped into a former coworker.  These remind me: I need to write about my IPhil days.

IPhil was an Internet service provider (plus some other businesses) that I helped run. We started on it in 1994, it launched in 1995, and I was working on it in different forms until 2002. Is it still running today? I can’t really say and I no longer know the full story.
I’m not that old yet. But if this chapter of my life and career is really behind me, then it’s time to write my memoirs.
