Winer links now enabled on Pro Pinoy

We’re pleased to announce a new “mini,” feature. We’re following the footsteps of the New York Times. We are implementing “Winer Links,” on site.

What does this do?

You will find at the end of each paragraph, a “#”. It’s a marker that you can use to link to that paragraph when copying content, or quoting content on Pro Pinoy.

“Winer links” is named after Dave Winer, the Father of RSS, and who also first implemented this feature on his site.

We hope that you will find this feature useful.

The Pro Pinoy Project aims to effect political awareness in Filipinos, and to raise the quality of discourse in the Philippines.
