On Pinterest: What I love & Featured Content in the Blog

I have been taking some time to sign up and try things in Pinterest, you should take it out! It’s a social network based on the posting of images, some are saying that it could drive visits to your blog. So I am trying to do two things with this tool.

1. Post images from the featured sections of the blog, to see if I can get a bit more visits, the sections are: Micro Reviews (yes, they’ll be back!), Internet Classics, Libraries & Information in Media, and Venezuelan Proverbs.

2. I believe that you are what you enjoy and love, so I started posting about the anime, movies, albums, and books that I love, check it out! Do you find your favorites?

New direction

A new direction on the blog is coming. I realized after Doris created her own blog (Check it out!!) that she, and of course I also tend to prepare so carefully every post. So I come up with very long and polished posts. But at the same time, I think that goes against the whole purpose of Internet culture and social media these days.

You may have seen that in 2010 and until now this blog was very much unattended, except the long and perhaps a bit controversial last posts.

While I was doing my master thesis I couldn’t get to write too much and then I didn’t even write a post for it! That’s coming. My new job (almost finished now), studies and all the changes in life undermined my blogging, too. Let’s see how it goes.

From now and specially from July, I’m changing to shorter and more frequent posts. As always, you can check what I read and like on the Internet through the Tumblr.

On the problems of liveblogging events

I just finished reading my bulk of unread google reader items, well, I have to actually mark as read the subscriptions which always grow too large to handle, and I found that my colleague aubreymcfato has put on one of his reviews of the ECDL 2009, conference that we attended together, a small note from Joho the Blog by David Weinberger that describes really good the experience and the feel of being liveblogging about events we are in. This is really valid for my first post on ECDL and the upcoming ones on the conference or of the same nature, that is, notes taken while I’m hearing some presentation or something of the sorts. I’m sorry for any lack of accuracy. David Weinberger’s disclaimer is the following:

“NOTE: Live-blogging. Getting things wrong. Missing points. Omitting key information. Introducing artificial choppiness. Over-emphasizing small matters. Paraphrasing badly. Not running a spellpchecker. Mangling other people’s ideas and words. Posted without re-reading. You are warned, people.”

Status Report

I have changed the design of the blog, I hope you like it. After the clifhanger on the Pirate Bay trial post I haven’t posted anything else, I owe you all the conclusion of that post. I have been working on the final project of this semester for the Master Course and it has taken a lot of time out of me, also I’m involved in a very exciting and interesting project I’m not yet authorized to tell you about it but you’ll know eventually. Finally, I have worked some time on my brand new Tumblr “judamasmas s-tumblrs”, the description of the site is as follows:

“As I stumble upon things on the Internet and on my life, I’m constructing this experiment on variety.
Here you will find pretty geeky things: great pics, media, technology, information science, digital society, videogames, literature, movies… If it’s cool for me, you will find it here…”

The idea is to have there my own micro posts (which I’m thinking to also copy here) and specially material not made by me, as this blog has always had my own intellectual production.

More on judamasmas’ Weblog on the following days…


Hello! Welcome to my blog, here you will find some personal information and information about what Juan Daniel Machin Mastromatteo (judamasmas for short, from now on) does or have done.
