Quoted on microblogging article at El Mercurio

El Mercurio is probably the most important newspaper on Chile. Even though it´s not the most read, it´s a high end product, for influential people (or so they say). Yesterday my collegue Gabriel Esteffan wrote an article about microblogging (i.e. Twitter) and gave me a call to hear my thoughts about it, today he published it.

Usually when we get linked from a newspaper, it doesn´t drive too much traffic, but it helps indirectly. Executives in IT companies read El Mercurio, and when they hear about ChileHardware – which was mentioned in the article – they will remember us. For example, if I met them in the past and they already heard about it, now they heard it again, or if I meet them in the following weeks, they will at least heard about us before. Anyways, being quoted either online or offline always helps, and help is what will make us even more important.

This week won´t be too busy, which is good, because I will have time to pick up with some articles I left behind. Next week I will be travelling to Rosario and Buenos Aires… again.

    Que buena…me pregunto si funcionará con cosas más exóticas como gorras de cosaco ruso o turbantes de taliban…es chistoso pero en la práctica la red se transforma en algo así como una caja mágica de los deseos (o la lámpara del genio o la isla de Lost).

    Para los efectos creo que sirve para cualquier cosa (ya lo hemos visto). Sin embargo la verdadera caja de pandora esta en la forma de monetizar este tipo de servicios…
