My geofumadas

This is my last post

After almost three years of existence of the Geofumadas Blog, 813 entries and 2,504 comments, after a complicated month of stressful situations, it seems that everything ends up settling. This life is like that, all passions usually Be temporary, And this seems to have come to an end.

Copy of IMG_0960 Among the topics that I have had after my trip to Charlotte, I finally decided to accept the representation of Bentley for Latin America, which makes me very busy to maintain the rate of publication to which I am accustomed to in this blog, added to a clause of the contract that for six years forces me not to write in a personal blog. Keith Bentley has been very kind in allowing me the three months that I requested to fulfill 40 days of sabbatical time that I hope to do in Tibet from January 5, with the tour of Mount Kailas and from where I hope to send some photos; back I will be participating in the Free GIS days.

For now, thank you for your time and friendship. To Tomás for opening this space in Cartesianos, a good friend of a lifetime; to Gabriel Ortiz, For his sound advice, to the friends of Geomatic Blog By its exigency, to Angie by its good vibration in Chocolate Dance, Nancy for her effort to translate to Geosmoke, many others that I do not mention because I can escape some.

I have reached an agreement with Cartesia, so that this content is available for 30 days, during which time they can download it. After this it will be removed as part of my contract; both Geofumadas and Galvarezhn become the shared domain of Bentley Systems, who, by acquiring 79% of Manifold GIS shares, becomes my most aggressive challenge.

I have therefore decided to start an anonymous blog, in which I will be writing eventually.  Here you can follow me, I look forward to seeing you there.
