News from the Spanish Blogosphere

We have been made aware of a Spanish memedigger called Menéame. It’s currently in beta form and looks quite polished.

A great post on the state of the blogosphere in general and the Spanish blogosphere by Recuerdos del día de mañana, which translates into Memories from the morning of the day. For the Spanish speakers, here is a direct link to the post in question. For the others, a translated version. The article goes back and tackles some of the issues breached by Jason Calacanis and his attempt to hire the best users of digg and other memediggers to work for Netscape.

Bohamled, author of the blog, also makes a parallel to the Spanish memedigger Menéame and how he realizes that there must be a Menéame mafia, similar to the digg mafia and how that must influence the Spanish blogosphere. He mourns the loss of objectivity when these types of moves are made by corporation such as AOL and Netscape.

    Thank you for the link.

    Sometimes it is a bit pitiful to see how the “past” in digg is repeated in meneame.
    A lot of bullying an lynching against “non-standard contents”. On the other hand inch by inch and little by little there is a bias that is turned in to a law.
    We could take advantaje of the experience of the pioneer, digg, to get rid of that “freedom of publishing robbers”, but it is impossible.
    (and if you write they even insult, treat as a spammer or a troll….

    Thank you very much for the link and congratulations, the blog is very interesting and useful

    See u

    Thanks bonhamled, I enjoyed your insights as well, even if I had to use translation software to read them!

    Yes, digg mafia and the other types of power core users of memediggers aren’t the best for those softwares.

    Thanks for your comments.
