These are days to consider reviewing plans and resolutions for the coming year.'s Cold, rain, birds sing and gurus rise. Gurus?? Yes, gurus. With each and every one of the letters, to everywhere under stones, total, do not suffer the crisis, being a guru is comfortable and nothing is free. Courtesy of @ albertoartero received yesterday this link the less fun, talking about playing all kinds of internet gurus which rabbits. In a study of Twitter has grown from about 4,500 in May 2009 to about 16,000 curious history. Internet gurus, social media gurus, of the viral, digital marketing, even those who consider themselves "ninjas" and the "social media ninja s" (These must be to God!; Favorites! ). Must be the strike that has given so much free time to the collective mind, but there's nothing more frustrating than to see someone autoconsiderá guru without having any idea what he's talking, as indeed it is obvious that you are the real guru always you and not that mindundi Speaking more or less seriously, has coincided with fashion guru to be something, no matter what, with the publication of the list of the most "powerful" Internet. I have not read and leaving some friends, and I understand it's nice out in these lists, I do not criticize or least. I obviously do not go out among other things because I have not tied with anyone, but I think putting myself in the shoes of those who leave should be a nice experience, because someone has valued. Where I think they have not done any favors by using labels is radical, offensive to the rest of humanity, "the powerful" or months "masters", that leaves his followers and the rest of humanity in a bad place. They are spectacular headlines, newspaper, which I really do not do any favors to the people you mentioned, without eating or drinking that seem to have been a label that most likely do not want to even care. So start the year, fun watching these things and wondering if ask me a quarter and half of the 16,000 guru there listed on twitter for Reyes. To me, the term I like, and I believe in truth and defend if there is "influential". The person who is a guru autoconsidera something, I think that besides not having grandmother, is very unwise. That in itself denotes not understand anything, and be intellectually arrogant, possibly a bully. I do not think anything gurus in Spain, which is the market I know best. If you think there are people, whether they are entrepreneurs, bloggers, teachers or medium pensioners, who are able to make you think, and even disagreeing with what they say that's the key. For me these are "influential", but that does not mean they are prescribers, indeed are those who stimulate me some ideas and thoughts, even opposite to theirs, you are reading maybe I would not have arisen. I have my list, and I like to follow and read what they have in their heads despite disagreeing, I would mention for example the more I read that Carlos Blanco , Julio Alonso , Jesus Encinar , Enrique Dans ... make me think and that paramilitaries I have a lot of value, are a stimulus, but that does not mean I go to buy a television brand that they like. With some many times do not think alike, but no matter, they are people who have the ability to put things in my mental agenda, to encourage me and make me think about issues that I had in mind. A few things affect me say, fill my agenda of ideas and thoughts. Recently Joshua Novick spoke of humility , and right into a nice reflection on what this sector is the lack of modesty and sometimes look to other side of the sidewalk thinking they are outdated and that we who are in the right place, the rest will disappear, we will be us who know, that we were right, the champions ... gurus? ... I think it's a reflection very complementary to these lines and nice to read. I will not mention who, but in the first week of December I remember a meal with a bank in Madrid. At one point, upon arrival, one of my partners who already knew, he introduced me to his companion as his "internet guru". Do not blink, you just looked perplexed to find that he accepted willingly and nodded to the epithet, "Shit, I thought, today as a dauber". Coincidence or not, I was right. What I mean by this is that if someone believes a guru, says little of himself and is not doing you any favors - quite the opposite, is putting a crumb more for you to believe what you are not and greatest They Fall!. If you would consider yourself self, big guy then you should consider that you have a problem and you need a good dose of humility. Persons smartest and most successful I've ever met in life have always listened to others knowing more than they never would have believed and, as a rule, have always considered themselves as mere apprentices, even though no one was objectively knowledgeable in your field who might make shade. Maybe now sell more be a guru or a ninja thing. But quite possibly be more real if you just are who you are, a person. This week has cost me define me and are 11: - ? imitate is the new authenticity? (by Jesus Encinar ) - The year that I stopped reading blogs (by Fernando Plaza ) - Internet Success and the time required. The example of Gmail (by Error 500 ) - The value to be the default (by Enrique Dans ) - Conversion rate: strategic measure of our performance (for Creative Territory ETC ) - 'Logo Google Effect' in 'google.dirson . com ': extra 65,000 visitors a day (by Google Dirson ) - What do you know Google?

(by Roberto Carreras ) - worth the risk, even if you lose (by Carlos Blanco ) - Public Relations: Crisis, a point of view from the field of communication (I ) (by Octavio Rojas ) 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.
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.
