flippic Ken Ilio, DVM, Ph.D. is a pioneer of the Internet, organizing online communities and building websites since the mid-1980s -- including Tanikalang Ginto (TM), the most popular human-edited Philippine Web directory, which has linked Filipinos from all over the world since 1994. In 2005 he was named one of "50 movers and shakers under 50" by Asia Inc. Despite the magazine's "Who's Hot in Asia" cover teaser, Dr. Ilio is actually based in Chicago, where he has been a prostate cancer researcher in the urology departments of Northwestern University Medical School and Cook County Hospital, and has taught biology to art and communications students at Columbia College. In recent years he has developed an interest in digital photography and has organized communities of photographers in both Chicago and his native Philippines.
