Jose Manuel Tesoro

My full name is Jose Manuel Tesoro, but everyone calls me Joel. My hometown is Manila. For most of the 1990s, except for eight months as a student in Myanmar (Burma), I was a print journalist who covered East and South East Asia, first as a staff writer in Hong Kong for Asiaweek and then as Jakarta correspondent for the magazine. I wrote The Invisible Palace, a true account of a journalist's murder in Java, which was named a 2005 Kiriyama Prize Notable Book in Non-Fiction. Now I'm a third-year student at Harvard Law School, where I study transnational federalism, regulation and the evolving Internet.
[Editor's note: Sadly, Joel passed away at the end of 2008 and is missed and remembered by his friends at Global Voices]
