Honduras: An Introduction to Honduran Blogs – Part 2

As promised in Honduran Blogs, Part 1 of 4, today we'll look at Honduran technology blogs.

The average Honduran uber-geek is male, under 30, loves Linux, updates his blog thrice a second, and is a master web designer. Many of these blogs are sleek eye-candy masterpieces, with great content…if you happen to like Kubuntu, Compiz Fusion, or Mac. Beware, all of these blogs are in Spanish.

Cesarius Revolutions [ES] (www.cesarius.net), by César Palma is a treasure trove of “cyber-culture, Linux, WordPress and free software”. Are you sick of Windows? Do you want Mac-like screen widgets in Linux? Want to punish Ronaldinho? Look no further. César writes with the benevolent air and the knowing grace of a true computer mentor. Any newbie Linux user must read his blog. Now.

Cliosguy Cumulatus [ES] (cliosguy.com), written by cliosguy, is a collection of technological musings, by an anonymous Renault Clio lover. Among the best are how to know if you're being monitored, what to do on your deathbed, and how to know whether you're a geek.

Linux Maya [ES] (www.linuxmaya.com), by José Luis Romero Lagos, a.k.a “Kinich Yax Kuk Mo“, is more a portal than a blog, but still has plenty of content, with articles like Shrek 3 and Linux, Novell hack week, and Venezuela's Linux experiment: Bolivarian Computers. In part 3 we'll visit José Luis's personal blog in more detail

There are tons more sites, but in honor of my readers, most of whom are more mainstream, I'll abstain from mentioning them and instead invite you to the next installment of Honduras blogs: Personal blogs.
