[Puerto Rico Python Interest Group] prPIG Partnering With EFF To Help Civilize Electronic Frontier

Effort brings new attention to critical Internet freedoms, including privacy and security.

As the Puerto Rico Python Internet Group (prPIG) completes its' first year of meetings and activities, the software development user community is partnering with the Electronic Frontier Foundation to help spread the word about the EFF, their mission, and work.

In addition to becoming an affiliate member of the EFF, prPIG will actively conduct meetings to share EFF prepared materials to the Puerto Rico software development community.  The EFF provides a timely "Take Action" center on their web page where citizens can actively engage citizens to help inform netizens about hot issues.  

prPIG is dedicated to ensure that the local software development community is exposed to the EFF, their work, and the valuable information they publish.  This material covers a wide range of issues likely applicable to technology professionals, such as blogger's legal rights, coder's rights, and ripped from the headlines, the EFF's fight against NSA's Warrantless Surveillance.

About Puerto Rico Python Interest Group


The Puerto Rico Python Interest Group (prPIG) is the leading software development user community in Puerto Rico. Our mission is to create a sustainable user community for software development in Puerto Rico.  With more than 170 members, the prPIG has successfully organized 18 activities and meetings during 2013.

[DONDEQUIERA] New Custom Address for Dondequiera: http://dondequiera.mistribus.com/

For reasons beyond my control, I've had to change the custom blog address.  It's hurt big time, all those links lost...tragic, but unavoidable.  The only thing is to start posting and hopefully get the site reindexed.

I'm sad to leave blog.dondees.com, ... good times ... but I got to git'r done.  Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. Dondequiera has moved from blog.dondees.com to dondequiera.mistribus.com, talk among yourself and get back to me. That would be great, mmmk?

[Puerto Rico Python Interest Group] I can haz Python introz?

Hello once again!

At our last workshop we had a great Introduction to Python talk. Afterwards though more and more people asked for more and more intro style talks / tutorials. Well even though we would give you all the intro tutorials you want we also have to carry on. We will not be giving intro to Python tutorials for a while, but that doesn't mean they aren't out there and that prPIG won't help you get them!
Teaching some Python!
We had our helper pythons slither through the internets to find some great intro to Python videos for you!

[Puerto Rico Python Interest Group] Two quick things to talk about...

Greetings fellow Pythonistas! We got two cool things to talk about!

First prPIG is hosting a Sprints and Workshop day this saturday October 12, 2013. Our workshop will be focused on beginning and intermediate python users. Our other track will be Python sprints.

Sprints in the Python world are a get together for 3 to 5 days of programmers interested in working on an open source project. In our case our sprints will be 1 day long. These are recommended for intermediate to advanced Python devs but are open to all!

Currently we need more attendees, sprint projects, and tutorials for the workshops. If you have ideas, want to give a tutorial, or want to participate please check out:


Second at prPIG we've been getting many request on teaching beginning Python. Although this is a group interest and we are giving a Starting off with Python tutorial at our workshop, we think some people do this better than us. You know like the folks at Coursera! Coursera just open what looks to be a great course: An Introduction to Interactive Programming in Python and I invite everyone who is interested in beginning with Python to not only come to our workshop but also enroll.

During the week we will be posting the confirmed tutorials and sprints for our Sprints and Workshop day.

[DONDEQUIERA] The 2013 Tech Summit and Hacker Bootcamp

I know I'm not the only one to be totally blown away at yesterday's Puerto Rico Tech Summit.  Everyone I chatted with, including some of the main organizers, where impressed at how well today's event came together.  To be sincere, most everyone believed that the event far exceeded our expectations and set a new bar for software development events in Puerto Rico.

For me personally, the Tech Summit provided me with great personal satisfaction.  It was an opportunity to reconnect with past colleagues and make a some new connections which I hope to convert into partners.  There was a unique vibe in the air. I don't know if it was just me, but I felt such a positive energy during the tech summit.

It was hard to escape the feeling that the information technology industry in Puerto Rico had forever changed.  I'm certain that we have finally made a huge leap forward in the adoption of Free Libre and Open Source Software in Puerto Rico.

Hacker Bootcamp

Axel Rivera and Juan Padilla Hacker Bootcamp TechSummitPRBecause I was speaking, I was not able to participate in the hackathon.  I did get to chat with 3 teams that were using Python on their projects, so that was cool.  I'm proud that the Puerto Rico Python Interest Group had such strong teams involved in the Hacker Bootcamp.

If it wasn't clear, the Hacker Bootcamp was held in recognition of the Nation Day of Civic Hacking, a national initiative involving 95 events.  With the participation of more than 100 software engineers, the hackathon included 23 projects, many of which used the recently released government application programming interfaces.  A truly amazing demonstration of civic action and programming capabilities.

Color me inspired. I can't wait to participate as a Python programmer in a future hackathon.  It's tough trying to master the Python programming platform after I've been a system analyst and project leader for so long.  One thing is certain, if there's any language that I stand a chance, it is with Python.

[DONDEQUIERA] Hackers Boot Camp at Puerto Rico Tech Summit

Puerto Rico
June 6, 2013, Puerto Rico Convention Center

In conjunction with the Puerto Rico Tech Summit, the Puerto Rico government is also sponsoring a programming competition.  The Hackers Boot Camp will give area developers the first opportunity to try out some of the new application programming interfaces (API) in construction within the PR government.  This is all part of a worldwide celebration of the National Day of Civic Hacking.  While the coordinated event is June 1st, Puerto Rico will celebrate it on June 6.

The CIO of the government, Giancarlos González has already mentioned a few of the types of Puerto Rico Government API data we can expect to be available during the Hackers Boot Camp, they include: property register, corporation registry, AMA routes, and fire hydrant locations (for some dog
walking app?).

[DONDEQUIERA] More Data = Better Pattern Detection

From Technology Review, "Foursquare Gets a Big Check," by Jessica Leber
Continuing in this direction is giving Foursquare a lot more data about the places people visit than it would have as a standalone app. And the more data it has, the more valuable that data is because of the patterns it can reveal about how large groups of people move around and, importantly, where and when they like to spend their money. As I covered in an article today, wireless carriers are trying to build businesses as location data providers as well (see "How Wireless Carriers are Monetizing Your Movements").

[DONDEQUIERA] Puerto Rico Tech Summit 2013

Calling all "amantes del Internet libre," the Puerto Rico Government is sponsoring the first ever technology summit focused on raising the consciousness and use of government enabled Application Programming Interfaces (API).  This is an unprecedented vote of confidence in the local software development community, which makes me super excited.

The Puerto Rico Tech Summit, is scheduled for June 6, 2013 in the Puerto Rico Convention Center. In conjunction with a program of workshops and tutorials, the summit will also feature the first ever Government Hackathon.

All of this follows the recent announcement of the Governor's MOU asking for Rest API's from all of the major government agencies, Governor Garcia Padilla has signaled a new era in software development in Puerto Rico.  Led by Giancarlos González and Roberto Rosario, this new initiative breaths fresh air into an IT industry that is stagnated and smothered by monopolistic software industry practices.

[Guagua Pública] "How - Why HOW We Do Anything Means Everything" = Transmedia

I'm reading Dov Seidman's "How" and I'm really finding his synthesis of his theories of a "New Era of Behavior." here's an example where his theories align perfectly with mine:
"Information becomes powerful when you get everybody on the same page with you, and it the most powerful thing if you spread a consistent message to more and more people."
 While this quote refers to the power of transparency, it is exactly what I have been saying about the max-strategy and social media.  This is the  new challenge for any creative entrepreneur, telling a consistent story across multiple mediums, classic textbook definition of transmedia. Word!

[DONDEQUIERA] Welcome Home, Pa'lante!

Today, I finished the conversion of MC Dondees, to yours truly.  It feels good to step out from behind the curtain.  The myriad reasons why we did it, shall remain locked in the past.  MC Dondees was a bad joke taken to the extreme.

Culebra, PR
For, good or worse, writing as MC Don Dees allowed me to rant about everything we learned about founding technology in Puerto Rico.  We thought we going to make a difference, and we did, but never in a way that we could actually monetize our traffic.

In the end, the concept of an Internet advertising startup based in Puerto Rico will always be sentenced  to a life of starvation.  I guess good, old Bob Davila from EnterPRize, knew it from the beginning.  The evidence eventually proved him right.

Even today, the non-existence of an Internet Advertising industry in Puerto Rico is astonishing.  Furthermore, the complete lack of search engine marketing is even more perplexing.  WTF? Search Engine Marketing is the most effective form of direct advertising ever invented.  Why would anyone NOT want to do it?

[Puerto Rico Python Interest Group] Puerto Rico Python UG will host a look at Blimp in next prPIG meeting


Puerto Rico Python is pleased to announce our next meeting.  The meeting will be April 9th at 6:30 in the offices of Vasa Consulting.  Be advised that this is a new date.  Our normally scheduled Wednesday meeting was not possible, because the conference room was already booked. 

We will start a new content track with this meeting.  From now on, all meetings of the Puerto Rico Python Interest Group (prPIG) will include a tutorial or demonstration from a group member or a specially invited guest.

Our first tutorial will be offered by the co-founders of Blimp, a project management web service built in Python.  You can get blimp at http://getblimp.com.  prPIG members Giovanni Collazo and José Padilla will be offering us a long behind the curtain at their software development stack.

Our "Hack the Hackathon" meeting was a smashing success.  You can watch the recording and see the fluid flow of great ideas.  The prPIG "Hackathon" meeting from 3/27 is available from Youtube via an On Air Google Hangout.

Although we are still seeking a date to lock in our first Python Hackathon, what we have decided on is the content.  The prPIG Python Hackathon will consist of three tracks. The first track will be a Python Install Fest; anyone wanting to install Python can bring their laptop and prPIG will make sure they walk away with a working version of Python.  

The second track will be tutorials given by prPIG members.  The final track will be a Python Sprint.  Using the Hacker League, prPIG will host a Python hacking contest.  More details of the hackathon will be available soon.  

An example of the type of content that prPIG will strive to produce in our Hackathon was recently created by one of its' members.  Robert Rosario produced "Screencast de como comenzar un proyecto de Django + Virtualenv;" thus completing one of prPIG's original goals, generate Python-related content in Spanish.

[DONDEQUIERA] Disposable Society

Every Monday the Solid Waste Department picks-up all of the "escombro" in my neighborhood.  I often scoot along ahead of them and snatch what I can before the truck comes.  As a sculptor, it truly is "one man's garbage is another man's treasure," but some of the stuff I find is still in good condition. 

Some of it is perfectly good household decorations, furniture, barbeques, or even tools (for example).  They are thrown out, smashed up and deposited in our overflowing landfills.  40 to 50 times a year, in thousands of neighborhoods, all across Puerto Rico.  It is such a waste! 

Someone Will Save It

If people think that the government workers "save" any of it, regardless of condition, they are mostly mistaken. Sure I'm sure if something "primo" appears, they might save it, but in general, they do not.  It's not their concern. What people throw out is to be scooped up and thrown away.  It takes them too much time to sort through the artifacts and determine if something is serviceable.

They're an afterthought in a disposable society.  If it's of no value to someone, then it must be worthless.  It is no wonder that there are so few antique stores in Puerto Rico!  I've had discussions with people about this topic, and the general take-away is that rescuing something from the landfill is beneath the common Puerto Rican.  To do so, brings shame upon your family.

Need Is Ignored

Yet, there are families in Puerto Rico that survive off of what others discard.  We've all seen someone pushing a shopping cart down the street picking up aluminum cans in order to feed his family.  Recently I've seen sites open up that buy scrap metal.  There are usually lines of beaten pickup trucks loaded down with all types of metal.  Some of it is scavenged, and I'm sure some of it is stolen, but that's another problem all together.

I just wish that there was some way that neighborhoods could collect serviceable goods found in the "escombro" and donate it to a distributor.  The distributor couldn't pay for it, because people would then begin outright stealing, just to sell to these places.  So it has to be done from the simple perspective that there are families and organizations that could use the stuff that has been thrown out by the affluent.  If only we could find a way to collect it and send it to those that need it.

Yes, I know, I'm too idealistic.

[Puerto Rico Python Interest Group] Google Group Moved

If you are looking for the Google Group, I moved it to the "Follow prPIG!" page.  It just wouldn't fit in 250 characters.

Slowly but surely, I'm getting all of the plumbing setup so that prPIG announcements will go out to every major social network, including email, all simultaneously.

[Guagua Pública] It's SEO Stupid - Max Strategy


Few people understand the seemingly scatter-shot approach I use for web production.  It shouldn't be a mystery, it is very simple. It is ALL about search engine optimization.  From the domain name to the content, each of my web sites is SEO driven.

However, they also accomplish one other thing.  Each of the sites is a tribe.  A tribe built around keywords.  As I continue to add more and more sites, I unite more and more tribes.  They are my tribes (translated into Spanish, Mis Tribus).  This is what I'm talking about:

[Guagua Pública] Facebook Engagement for Advertising is a Lie

I recently received an infographic from SocialBaker that blew me away.  In their report "January 2013 Social Media Report: Facebook Pages in the United States" they include the following table:


In the section entitled the "Top 5 Facebook Brands by Post Engagement Rate" it clearly states that the "Average Post Engagement Rate" is ONLY 0.166 %

Of the top 5 Facebook brands, the highest, the highest, is still only 5.8873 %.  There it is ladies and gentleman, as plain as the nose on the end of your face.  Even if you are the best at brand engagement in Facebook, you will only get a 5% engagement rate for any piece of content (advertisement) you share.

[Puerto Rico Python Interest Group] Coordination for 1st prPIG Meeting

I'm trying to nail down the location, the date, and the time for the first meeting.  One of our partners ASOPYMES has volunteered to host our first meeting.  Their offices are in the Association of Teachers building near the Department of Labor station of the Tren Urbano.

I'm shooting for the last week of February, either the 25th, 26th or 27th.  While I would prefer the meeting during business hours, I'm open to suggestion.  Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

If I don't hear back from the group by 2/18/13, I'll setup the meeting and let you know the where and the when.

Goal for 2013 - Aggregate

As some of my friends have mentioned, I administer a large stable of web properties.  When confronted with answering the question, "where they should look for all of the most recent news about Mis Tribus or Kevin Shockey?"  I want to be perfectly clear.  It will be here on the Mis Tribus home page.

To that end, I've begun a process of aggregation, that will ensure that all of my writing and news will appear on this blog.  While I know this will produce duplicate posts, I currently can't aggregate them without duplication.  I have the plans for how to aggregate them, but until I have the funding and resources, this "machetazo" solution will have to do.  Enjoy!
