Blogs& Beers with José Luis Orihuela

Categories: Latin America, Chile, Spain

José Luis Orihuela (ES) [1] is visiting Chile invited by International Communication Conference and Workshop (ES) [2]. Taking this unique opportunity, different blogers invite José Luis to talk with Chilean blogers in the meeting Blogs&Beers.

José Luis talked about liquid journalism, and other distinctions such as instead of saying participate journalists (as we denominate de bloging act) we should say “social media”. Explaining that not all blogers are journalist and making the metaphor that blogers are similar to DJ, because they don’t create the music they just mix music already made. About this issue, Roberto (ES) [3]writes:

“In my case this definition strikes me as right. My own mix has bits of reality, media information, personal experience and opinions, my judgments and prejudices, some sparks passing through television and the newspaper's front page, books I read, blogs I visit, the comments and the daily conversations. I’m not a journalist, I’m a blogger”

A very good review about this issues con be found in Atina Chile (ES) [4] and in the post of Maria Pastora (ES) [5] she also describes Orihuela mood :

“Being with the most famous blogger of Spanish speaking was great: a calm man, open to conversation, very kind, and no arrogance. But overall, we learned a lot from him and he talk of one of the things that passionate us: blogs! “

Alexis (ES) [6], that attend to Blogs&Beer and the conference, share their notes:

“The good new is that everyone can publish. The bad new is that everyone can publish.”

Related to liquid journalism writes

“Orihuela speaks about liquid journalism, that difference from the traditional that follows patterns. The journalist should adequate to the new times. Be liquid, shapely. Get specialize in one issue, but get diversification through language. Blogs have set out challenges: the most important is to hear the readers”.
