Alejandro Suárez Sánchez-Ocaña. Entrepreneur and private investor sector Internet and New Technologies.
Since last Wednesday, I'm working on "Marketing Time" Chain Cope in Barcelona . It makes me especially happy because this initiative is in another role, a return to the world of radio in which I gave many years ago my first and only professional persons steps. Time Marketing is a program, with focus on the exciting world of marketing and advertising that directs Luca Dell `Oro (which by the way these days professional debuts a highly recommended blog) and Gina posing with Palau. Every Wednesday from 15 to 15.30 hrs we will be commenting on internet news, technology and innovation with a focus from the point of view of marketing and communication. Last week was our first guest Angel Maria Herrera , founder of Bubok to mark the first anniversary of his project and to enlighten us about the future of publishing. This week I can say that talk about blogs and what they represent to society with Javier Martin of Loogic I leave if you want to hear my first speech as a collaborator with Angel Maria. A couple of days have brought out the book "Web 2.0 ... (and the mother who bore her!)" That can be achieved on paper and online bookstores as pdf Bubok , Amazon or Lulu . Many find it curious title, the explanation is simple, many of us who worked in this sector before 2005, possibly more comfortable as we were emitting generators message and web content with a less social, less rebellious and a user more passive. No doubt the web has evolved for the better, but without any doubt, but it is wrong to say, before many of us lived better The book of nearly 170 pages, is a review of the concept of Web 2.0, especially suitable for people with a fully or partially offline profile and not really related to the social web. The book is prefaced by Carlos Blanco (thanks again, Carlos!). This is my first foray into the publishing world, and I say first because I'm starting to work a very different book aimed at entrepreneurs, I think the owner (we'll see if it is the final title), "Entrepreneurship in times of crisis."

We'll see what happens tonight! As culture and internet concept even squeak a little.'m Sure that new technologies will revolutionize the next few years the cultural movements, especially the art, music and literary world. But that is not new and already thinking 5 or 10 years ago, the problem is not reached, there is little cultural initiatives related to internet culture in general; symbolic in Spain and almost nonexistent in Latin America. Sad but true. Investors, projects and the "attack on niche markets" as fashion and in order of importance economically, are to blame for delaying my cultural projects that could be very interesting and even more dynamic movements cultural, but today at the enterprise level would not be profitable and feasible in a country like Spain, where that cultural consumption is low. We are in a country where you hear a lot of music (which rarely purchase), in which the rate of book sales is low, and where despite having two of the major art museums in the world ( Museum Prado , and in contemporary art and the avant MNCARS ) when one visits them often "almost" the only Spanish there. One of those projects is the merit of Angel Maria Herrera , who ate the last week at the Club 31 in Madrid (incidentally, the very traditional restaurant that has earned the 5 cucharetes who have given ). Bubok , draft Angel Mary, born as an alternative publishing desktop publishing and transplanting emulating the model of Lulu to the Spanish market.
I want to thank Loogic , ABC , News Dot , Cadena Cope , Onda Madrid , El Prat Radio , WinRed , César Nuñez , Internet Eyes , Hard h20 , Isabel Vazquez , Silicon News , Digital Freedom (I will not forget anyone!) have discussed the about the book. Incidentally, we prepare a party for early-mid April. It's another excuse for a party in Madrid (the idea is to do a Thursday still to be defined at a reasonable hour) and invite a few drinks and canapés to all friends who want to stop by there (maybe even occur to us more fun than the drinks and canapes ... If you fancy coming to the book launch, please leave a comment on this post, and good contact Constance email you to let you get an invitation valid for 2 people. The date and venue yet to be defined, the idea is to be right before or the week after Easter, we are evaluating several options (avisariamos with time ...) Today I travel to lunchtime to Barcelona to participate in the forum I Start Ups organized by First Tuesday . I have the pleasure of being one of the members of the jury that will evaluate to 7 startups. The jury is composed by very prominent internet, business angels and entrepreneurs:
First is a romantic and ambitious project especially long term, and secondly offers unexplored possibilities for the future, not only for self-publishing authors, but especially for reprint edition print works and hundreds of publishers that no way to get by the high cost of printing and distributing series. All that will come and Angel Maria have taken credit for a space of privilege and have opted for the online literary world when neither the publishers have done yet, something that we would not have dared many. The entrepreneurial project culture in Spain, especially if it gets funding and conducts, is a dreamer brave, or crazy, or a freak. I have no doubt that Maria Angel is neither a madman nor a freak. I knew him personally for over a year, I remember we ate on the occasion of the book he published " 15 years of Internet in Spain "with Jorge Villabona in publishing Owl Group , wanted to talk to me and hear my whole story and then had the detail devote one long chapter of the book to tell my adventures with the great characters of the new technologies in Spain and Bernardo Hernandez , Luis Abril, Jesus Encinar , Carlos Blanco , Emilio Marquez , Ismael El-Qudsi , Jesus Monleon , Sixto Arias , Javier Martin or Carpintier Rodolfo , among others. It has always seemed a very sensible and has a professional profile and very curious, you see a person who has concerns and has done many different things in life and a clear commitment by the cultural background. Adding to all this entrepreneurial spirit and the ability of conviction has to surround himself with brilliant people on an advisory board and convince investors get the likes of Sequoia, Europa Press, El Grupo Intercom, Andreu Teixedor and Caja Navarra. Le desire for truth that goes well Bubok adventure, that in different markets, have similarities and reminds me in some things our draft Yes.fm and would love, as we talk about music and literature, literary and music industry, which someone of importance and a serious project is encouraged with the other major leg of culture and one of my great passions, art. If that project finally comes, call me I do not wanna miss it and would love to participate.
