A social directory for filipino students & alumni.
Eskwela.com is one of the first Web 2.0 applications developed by Filipinos for Filipinos. (Many people argue about the definition of Web 2.0, and many others wave it off as a mere buzzword, so discussing it further or trying to summarize it here in just a few words will not be effective. So let’s just move on and focus on the web application itself.)
Eskwela, which is Tagalog for “school” (derived from the Spanish word “escuela”), is a social networking (okay, another fuzzy, debatable buzzword) service that brings together students and alumni from a given school.
