Back to Argentina

November 12, 2007 at 7:30 pm 2 comments

I just finished a pretty weird monday. Anyways, my weekend was great, on Friday we went to Creamfields, where Chemical Brothers and Carl Cox did their thing. A friend gave me some VIP tickets, and for our luck, it had a full open bar, so we had a great time and of course the night end up quite crazy. On saturday I went to a BBQ where we had a great dinner, and after ir, we had a special guest, our old friend Jack Daniel.

Tomorrow I´m heading back again to Buenos Aires, Argentina. This is time I´m atttending Intel Editor´s Day which will be held in Rosario, Argentina. The event starts on Wednesday and our bus to Rosario departs very early, so we are leaving one day before.

I will have to go back to Buenos Aires on the end of this month, 29th and 30th, and if things go well, I should go in between this week and the 29th trip.  Because Chile is so small, many manufacturers decide to throw their press events at Buenos Aires, which is a bigger market, and fly journos there. It´s a good trick, an probably cheaper, although we´ve arrived late to more than one. That´s why it´s always better flying the day before.

PS: Slashdot only moved something around 2000 uniques to our site. Not too bad although less than we expected.

    well, 2k uniques is cleary not so much, but congratulations any way 🙂

    Do you know numbers from english sites that have suffered a heavy slashdot effect? I know from first hand that can move 25k-30k uniques in a couple of hours, maybe slashdot moves something similar?

    I haven´t known about the Slashdot effect, but Digg can move something around 20k – 30k uniques. Anyways, Digg readers dont´s click ads!

    And yes, 2k is not much, we are lucky we receive more than 30k uniques everyday without even needing a “special effect” 😀

    Thanks for stopping by!
