Oks: People Powered Linking

I came across Oks (or [[ok!]]), a Pinoy Digg-style site. Creator Luis Buenaventura explains Oks. He is also behind the irreverent community site HighFiber.

His blog post talks about Filipino Web 2.0: are Pinoy web users ready for sharing and content creation? He thinks we’re not, but would like to prove it otherwise.

I have to be amused – an Oks user mentioned my Philippine Blog Aggregator project prototype.

Will collaborative filtering work for a Pinoy website?

    What DHA does when applied to your skin is creates a reaction with the amino acids in your skin’s

    had left the fields to toil long hours in dimly lit plant life without ever seeing this light of day.
    Sun Labs literally leads the way in the tanning industry.
    To get yourself a normal, even looking fake tan, scrub the
    skin before you apply your spray tan. Salons and spas also use tanning spray cans for applying
    the fake tan. However, always consult your physician before you go for a
    sun tan, tanning bed or sunless spray tan to ensure your and your child’s
    safety. The spray product is available in different varieties and quantities.
    If you are not familiar with exfoliating it is simply the act of removing dead skin and dirt build
    up on the skin. s little you can do unless your travel insurance
    policy covers a full refund of the costs and if it
