Right on the heels of the Ticao Stone conference comes the 1st Philippine Baybayin conference in the Manila area. I know what some of you are thinking – Why are these conferences revolving around unproven Baybayin artifacts? Perhaps it’s need to help market Baybayin to the masses? Besides that, I think it’s an undeniable benefit to have this conference. The dialog has started! Could this be the core group all of you have been asking for who can implement a standard? What do you think?
