PowerBlog Review: Antoine's Blog on Business and Technology

Editor's note: This is the twenty-first in our popular weekly series of PowerBlog Reviews of other weblogs...

Antoine's Blog on Business and Technology is published by Antonio Fumero of Madrid, Spain.

This blog is written mostly in Spanish, with the occasional article in English, as in this recent post. Most of the links, though, are to English language articles.

Now, my English-speaking readers, please don't stop here. Or you will miss out on some interesting writings.

And the fact is, you probably can read more of this blog than you think. With a little high-school Spanish, and the use of the Google translation tool, you will get the gist of most posts.

In fact, Antonio's blog is a good reason to try out the Google translation tool, or one of the other free tools out there like BabelFish. These translation tools are still rough and have quite a ways to go, but they are more useful than I expected. They don't have the exactness you need for translating, say, a scientific study or a contract, but for getting the gist of a blog post they work reasonably well.

According to his online resume, Antonio is an IT engineer, with experience in the banking industry. He also used to be a translator of technical documentation from English into Spanish.

As the blog title suggests, he writes about the business aspects of technology. He tends to write about telecommunications, collaborative technologies and connectivity, including social network software, blogs, and wikis.

What makes this blog worth visiting is the wide variety and quality of information posted. For instance, it was through Antonio's blog in a post roughly translated as "Complicated Alphabet Soup" that I first learned about the coming development of 802.11n and 802.11s wireless standards -- and found the links to other resources on the subject.

Spain has a thriving blogging culture, and I enjoy a peek into that world through
Antonio's blog.

The Power of Antoine's Blog on Business and Technology is in its coverage of new developments in connectivity and collaborative technologies -- and the fact that it bridges cultures between Spain and the U.S. making the globe a little smaller.
