About the MCT Centennial Site
This site is constructed to help promote the Philippine Centennial Celebration. It aims to help in Rekindling the Filipino Spirit by making available to the global Internet community some works and materials regarding the Centennial Celebration, Filipino Nationality, and events of a hundred years ago. This site is the contribution of MSC Communications Technologies, Inc and MSC Computer Training Center to the Philippine Centennial Celebration.
The site contains very little original material, and is mostly a collection of articles from noted authors and material from the Philippine Centennial Commission. MSC Communications Technologies, Inc and MSC Computer Training Center do not claim any academic credit for this collection.
We constructed this site by presenting articles from publications and sections from books of noted historians. We presented accounts of different historians to give varying views of the events a hundred years ago. Whenever possible we include quotations from historical personalities and portions of texts of documents and writings to give the reader first hand impression of the material, works and ambiance of the times. We hope this site will show the excitement, the emotions, the motivations, the interactions of the events and actors of a hundred years ago.
It is hoped that by learning the events of the past, we rekindle our Filipino spirit with celebrations of the present to proudly face the challenges of the future.
We would like to acknowledge the following references, obtained from typical layman sources like newspapers, giveaways and National Bookstore.
The late Professor Agoncillo's History of the Filipino People and Malolos: Crisis of the Republic deserve special mention here, as they are the favorite references of this site. His books give exciting and fascinating insights into the events we commemorate, and is definitely recommended for those who wish to know more about Philippine history.
We would also like to acknowledge our cyber friends who magnanimously allowed use of some materials from their sites to enrich this collection.
For comments and suggestions, contact the designers of this site through the friendly webmaster of MSC Communications Technologies, Inc.
The views expressed by authors are not necessarily the views of this site. Much material was obtained from Kalayaan, the Centennial monthly publication of the National Centennial Commission and the Asian Institute of Journalism and Communication, from the official Centennial site, and from Prof Agoncillo's book. While no explicit permission was requested from other authors to reproduce their works, we hope they will see this as an endorsement and advertisement of their works.
To all quoted authors, we wish to extend our most heartfelt thanks.
