Very graphic image of the station Sans in Barcelona, yesterday morning.
This is what it can assert a CD today. It is the death of an formatted:
On Aug. 19, certainly in CONAE and plan as something casual, I commented in the office and then on the blog we call a game experiment Alexander the Great. It was at 3 months (ie before November 19) to move from page does not sound how many thousand to the top of Google, the search for "Alexander" with 50,000,000 results.
Frankly I have not spent much time until yesterday, several good friends at a dinner in Madrid, indeed, the very gulfs have wagered money on this topic, some in favor and others against and it was very quiet, I recalled the item (the truth, barely remembered it), recalling that were missing a few days ... and I looked at dates and it is true, it commented in its day and had not seen results.
There are just a few days of the term and look at Google's index am .... Now in this second datacenter.
We'll see if it gives time to position it in 7-8 days as the first in Google, will be very difficult and it is possible to achieve in the longer term and then I made a few business cards as Javier Casares, that when I saw I did thank you very much, they say something like "To contact Alejandro looking at Google"
Is the first really complicated because I've been rolling as much time to spend, because then my being a domain. And is taking a short time (4-5 months) online, it is difficult to position it as the first of the 50 million searches and finally because as "Alexander" there are at least 3 highly relevant searches, the first Alexander the Great in Wikipedia to which it is difficult to derail, the second by the official website of a certain Alejandro Sanz, and the fourth by another very popular artist in Mexico, Alejandro Fernandez ... Overall, the outcome next week, but we are already the second. try this week to see if we give a little help.
This unknown, such as Alexander the Great did not know how you can have so many references, I think that cheats I will complicate the final sprint. It's complicadillo but admitted betting!
This morning while I shower I've been listening to the radio program from Carlos Herrera on Onda Cero and I really feel I have come to the floor ... it may be uncomfortable. Uncomfortable with this society, but also and above all in first person about myself.
Are 8:30 a.m. and I have convened several meetings today in my office by email and phone with my lawyers and people in my team, I think it is not justified in certain things remain motionless. I am well, all of a sudden revolution and put me to work on an idea to me round the head with those around me.
Commented the call from a woman who has left me confused first and then really sad.
We talk a lot about the crisis and many times especially from a very wealthy and from this sector of New Technologies, we do not realize that the crisis, economic problems and so on. are not to fall EBITDA, or that the advertising% occupancy is less, or that it has fewer subscribers, or that investing in entrepreneurs and / or companies rewind, or even falls in the dollar or the CPM, this is a shit, the real crisis is something else and it's real and direct way to other people's lives, and frankly this morning I have embarrassed myself and what I'm doing little to help people live as if this real crisis in my own country, the crisis of truth, not that I have been concerned in the first person.
The case is Carlos Herrera commented that as a lady called yesterday on the radio and explained what it is for the crisis. He has several children and one of them has a total disability, we have operated over 30 times and if that was no longer in itself a drama, the drama of truth is that she and her other children more or less to "celebrate" the days of stay in hospital because they can eat food regularly distributed among all the sick child, or as he commented as they managed to mix with water and milk to their children so that they lasted longer, or bought as scrap meat, which sold to feed the dogs in rural areas so as to mix it with a little rice and eat each day.
The announcer commented on the case even impressed by the testimony, the call had been yesterday, and immediately commented as shopkeepers, fruit and so on. had called the radio and no one asked anything and had secured food from the family during the coming years, pledging to send everything they need every week for food.
I listen to all this did not give credit and I felt a lot of confusion, first because I did not really fit on the head that this could happen in Spain in the twenty-first century, and second because I have always taken the lead we need to do things, everyone can (and should) put a little bit of a sustained and steady. To my shame many years thinking that and not doing anything ... when it is clear that my economic situation would allow me to do some things that could at least help improve the lives of some people like this lady who has called the radio.
In these years of crazy growth in Spain rather endian we have finished our personal ego and as a country. One is placed under the 4 Torres de la Castellana look up those hundreds of meters and thought as the country has progressed, the eighth of the world GDP by what abroad is called "the Spanish economic miracle." We are well rejoice in it. In rural areas are going to ride, nobody is going to rural areas and look down, just like nois look up, and if one day hear such testimony in person, you are like me, obnoxious, inconsistent withthe conception that you have in these times of your country and, ultimately outsiders to see.
I called my lawyers, I called one of my main collaborators and I will see how we can all articulate a vehicle of social partnership, which could at least try to help people in need and to draw on a regular basis and receive funds my business to do so. Servent Diego years ago, coordinator of Leisure Networks set up a solidarity project called "solidarity" and I remember those years have closely followed the things they did. I have no doubt, and I learned things that made watching even with few resources are can do things.
Hence, publicly, is my commitment. As far as we have clearer shape in a couple of days, I will be able to explain the way that we see more viable to do so. I love you, I read that you can bring your ideas, your opinion or you can work with the initiative of here exit.
Fernando what comes to me directly and I hope that call for good cheer should be something like that is not "ashen" , For the post I wrote about the crisis Revelation: and even think that will not affect you much?
The truth is that, regardless of other considerations, I still think that everything is black, black, black, and that the real economy is hit save the government or not the banks .... And we're going to a difficult situation, that is true.
I do not think you have to be optimistic by nature, not smile when you are wrong because the truth is that I think you have to be a little conservative and that this is a defensive position that has resulted in other sectoral crisis we have experienced (which have already been a few ye this sector TIME story with the fingers that we all survived and are still here). But actually I think we also have reason to say, like Fernando, we must look forward and not stay regodeándose of the negative situation that is likely to live in a given time.
I imagine that all this is a more positive or negative is the time staff each, and sometimes one sees through the window the day a little more gray than what is the best. It's like everything, a state of mind.
Either way, I do not talk over the crisis in this blog, but not because someone I considered catastrophic, but because I think it will be healthy for me and for the healthy and read it as an internal matter is not the role that I must convey to my people, and at least this post has helped me realize that reading.
From now on the good side and bad weather so it is up to me in our companies to get to work more than ever complain about our problems and less. It is possible that publishing it has been able to convey any negative or defeatist to the people working with me, and I read and nothing further from my intention. So for entry, my apology and correction.
Certainly I think a new approach and take things over philosophy, but avoid the free optimism will be much more constructive.
(Comment on key internal: Let not God between my office, or send me an email advertising by the crisis crying or anything)
So now everyone, Curran!
In December many people did not believe that we saw in a scene as apocalyptic as the current one. I have always been tremendously negative to be by my character, but never thought it would be of tremendous crisis and adjustment durísimo, never thought this would seem the end of the world ... and begin to appear.
Yesterday, Wall Street has fallen by 7% the largest drop, and do not go and how many crashes since 1987, Tokyo last night by 10%. Nobody in this bloodletting, or helping with public money (to open hands), nor lowering rates or anything, and the worst thing is that we do not know if we are in the upper middle part of even the roller coaster.
The Argentines know that this much meat and lived in the playpen, I commented that surprised "that the Spaniards are quiet" in a situation like that, it looks like a playpen world. Many people are going to be on the streets, many people will not be able to pay their house and many people after this, your life will change completely.
In December summed up with "it will be ugly, but will not affect much internet." Now it is clear that is affecting a lot to the overall wealth of the countries, and it is clear that there is in advertising budgets of companies and internet. To sample a button, the evolution of loa star internet company, one of the most capitalized companies in the world: Google in 2008, the closest thing to that figure is "off and go" and plummeting from 700 $ 330 $ action until yesterday , A loss of 50% of the wealth of the company and shareholders, a company whose capitalization was 160 billion dollars and now "just" Billions are 78 in a year. And that will affect that?. At all. Not developed much, not so much invested, will not acquire companies ... will be a great disincentive to driving in recent years, and this happens in all companies in the sector.
Even under the speaking engagements cafelito morning with astonishment as I hear there are morons who think things like "Fuck that was falling and that banks", "well not pay the mortgage" (but if you go back the next day ...! ).
Some time ago Carlos Blanco, in an amusing post wondered whether this would be a crisis type VL U etc. Time is not replying to the same type Y is a crisis and we have not even reached the worst point.
I am in these last days of receiving offers to buy domains and Websites that under other circumstances I would have raised even if necessary by lack of liquidity to fund ... but now ... do you have any sense even thinking about it?.
The crisis of the dot-com was a joke compared to the consequences of this global crisis which we live. Objective: To survive
At the end I decided on a fairly recent, that the less I like it and encourages and gives me a lot of energy to hear it from time to time with the music very high.
To find out which one, you'll have to see besides the video:
I admit that I have very little, very little is more interest in life, whether professional or personal Penelope Cruz.
For a year and a half that I have come to live in a very quiet urbanization in the north of Madrid, where we are neighbors, but it almost does not pass through Madrid, in fact, not only her but her mother and sister are here also her home. Maybe that's why this weekend encouraged me to read an interview in El Pais, which drew my attention to the girl without coming to the story, and no one asks is dispatched well with the Internet.
Well ... breathe, the thing has changed since there is the Internet. I do not want to be making headlines every half hour of my life. There are a lot bigger than before, so you adapt to change, you are protected. And what matters is what is natural for everyone. If I meet with someone to talk about work, that's the natural thing.
-Just wondering by the new afraid to show a bit of privacy, which is the same that we all have.
It is that change comes from the Internet, that kind of monster, where anything goes. But, well, I do not want to talk or that, it's like feeding the monster. I am only interested in the interpretation of this and continue to grow.
I imagine so busy with a stressful life, announcements, awards, film shoots, travel, new boyfriends and so on, you're a little rust on his brain. I do not understand this kind of reactions toward the Internet as if it were a single thing; internet is all-or-is almost a parallel virtual world that reflects a society with good and bad, the positive and negative.
Maybe if you lees with Tom Cruise, or with Javier Bardem, or Nacho Cano, or Matt Damon or Josh Harnett or even all of them with any more or because we are all at the same time, it speaks about it on the Internet, but that should not bother because it is a reflection of your life, in fact live to talk to you, of being a known face, to see your movies, and your ads. It is equally true that when you win a Goya or do you nominate to the Oscars by the network highlights, ie internet is like the whole society is reflected fairly in the network, which does not detract from the fact that there might be a cafre which makes a nonsense , Exactly like in real life.
The problem of many characters with the network, is that they have no partner to intimidate; your representative can not insinuate to bloggers, and webmasters like if you do the editor of a magazine should withdraw with or without an information and that contraprestaciones , Who are accustomed to living well, confuses them.
Weeks ago he spoke at another post "where the hell are the JASPE." It was a post that provoked many reactions too-good-some criticism, as many reactions I received nearly 150 contacts, emails, phone calls and CV in this regard. It is curious that not only reactions over the Internet, but 5-6 people in my environment to work in other companies and knew for years have told me they want to talk to me about it and who are interested.
That theme, the look of someone who can lead the project Madrid.net I got a little parked by the monopoly we have had with the launch of Yes.fm last week and also because after publishing the post, I have literally "buried" in a mountain of applications for meetings, emails and CV with that now I could not do much because it's something that I do not want to delegate and I want to look carefully and personally since starting this week. I promise you a day early.
But if it's difficult to find young people and valid for a captain, is even more difficult to find technical quality of seniors to integrate into a project. It has always been a desperate, it is perhaps for this reason that when someone finds a valid and eager to learn and grow, as when I met our Chief Technical Jaume Riutort, you should try to keep it, and it will stack years , Eh, James?
Most of the technical staff complains that when working in a startup, or in an internet draft usually are little valued and charged for two drives, also have expiration date because after the initial development are not as useful; many times that, which is a recurring complaint of the technical staff is absolutely true and just always preferring to integrate into a multinational or a development company rather than a company website. The opposite is equally true that many technicians do not have sufficient qualifications and are not able to take responsibility. That is to say that it is difficult to find technical, but very complicated to find good technical level and resolve.
One of our partners commented the other day and for the development of their applications for Media Center had to bring a person ... from Australia to live in Spain! (it is a good job and pay very well!)
The draft Yes.fm we bet, and is not very common in Spain, for a complete in-house development of all our applications. That today's Internet was quite difficult to take that path and the vast majority of startups in Spain opt for other routes as companies outsource development work with freelancers distance, or even customize open source applications to save costs and require a profile Developer lower and faster. We, I think we can bear the cost of mounting a good technical team and will be a key feature of a service that will be in continuous development in the future as Yes.fm
Right now to draft Yes.fm have to go by hiring several people in a fast, that includes not only technical but also other profiles, the more common and easier to find people like Marketing, Sales Online Advertising and so on.
Comentábamos last Friday at a meeting to take weeks after trying the search Infojobs (do not know if maybe we should have also tried elsewhere, Do you think we should have done?), We get ½ page at planteábamos "El Pais" Quick to find people for the positions we need. Before doing so I wanted to publish this post, somehow I am disappointed to have to resort to paper for people to find an Internet company.
The experience is not a criterion, for example in our team there are people working for many years, and other leading 1 years working and who have neither race nor experience, and are cracks. For a novel, we prefer to value above all the ability to renew itself, curiosity, the desire to learn.
If you are the person we're looking for (or if you know a person adequate contact with it!) To think that we can offer good working conditions, work and a very attractive project and a good atmosphere. The work was played at our headquarters in Madrid.
This post, we'll dedicate it to someone Prisacom, who has commented 3 times anonymously, with Nick "disenchanted" and "anonymous" (and from the IP of your business, a little lack-of-view that, but good ... :-D) to talk to the technicians.
're Done, soon, but I did.
Is not is getting your head?
I've 1 week wondering whether or not to count for something in this blog. At the end of thrown into the river "and so discharge adrenalin of the week.
My first question is because it is not related to technology, or business, or marketing, nor to the art ... is something that is really offtopic. And the second thing because I do not want to be a vision of my misconception that I am a moralist or something.
The fact is that in the end I decided to tell the tale. Alike is that having a child of 3 years I have become somewhat paranoid and even pay "the hazing," but I really believe this is a country of contrasts, which goes from cold to hot, and sometimes there are things unreasonable.
Ubiquémonos in a shopping center in Madrid, in the Zona Norte, San Sebastian de los Reyes, Centro Comercial Plaza Norte 2, I visit with some frequency to be near my house. You know what some, is a shopping center like any other , Shops, cinemas, restaurants, that if a mall bigger than normal and possibly more pretentious and hortera than normal, with huge vases and pyramids, and ornaments in marble of green and blue colors unlikely in the interior
The fact is that upon arrival of summer, walking with my daughter I see next to the candy store who frequents that have opened a new store. When I see that approach is called "sensual love," and I find it curious. The shop outside a store seems more, but when one sees on light that the name of "Sensual Love" is not consistent with the content, which we Sex Shop is a virtual home with clean, the door opened and any access problem for anybody (see next to "Belros" candy shop)
It's obvious to say that I have nothing against these establishments, which I believe is more fun to get some laughs, and they do not see anything wrong. But I feel sorry I can not find another name-acojonante, which camouflaged a content light, 20 meters from the theater and with wall to wall of candy and sweets shop for more kids, the direction of the North Plaza Shopping Center 2 ( Clearly, those who chose the pyramids of colored marble hortera!) have approved in the 2008 and planted a Sex Shop. I think it is not the site.
Perhaps someone who reads me may think that exaggerating, but the content once it passes the door is not in keeping with the image light outside (yes, I did with my wife, and the site can be fun, but this is not the location). Dildos (by the way of incredible colors, sizes and varieties), Chinese balls, and inflatable sex dolls exposed, all kinds of sex toys, some other indescribable and inexplicable. (see photo).
Will it be very horny and very funny, but it must be right next to where the "dwarf" falling like crazy to buy candy?
The other day flip literally, to see explain to a father who was going to the movies with their 2 sons and that one was "escaped" 30 seconds which was the green comforter that was carrying in his hand.
Ah! And in truth, nothing moralist, I believe that everything has its place, anywhere.
Did not we going a little pot in this country to govern until exhaustion gilipolleces, and allowing things like this, no feet or head to happen. Does logic for example, that in the Vips not sell me a 2215 bottle of wine and that hidden in a shopping center a Sex Shop in the transit area of greater child?
Is that there are people for whom this is not important, only anecdotal, but I do have a dwarf 3 years ago to see things differently.
I'd love to hear your opinions. Like I'm doing is already too old.
