Hace unas semanas tuve el placer de conocer a John Rouse, co-fundador del sitio Create Culture. Paseamos por San Telmo y esta es la entrevista que surgió de aquella experiencia. Espero traducirla en el futuro.
Valentin was one of the first members on Create Culture. When I went to Buenos Aires recently we wandered around San Telmo and got to know each other a little bit better in person. The following is an interview that came from this meeting……. -John
Tell us a bit about yourself.
My name is Valentín Muro and I’m 20 years old. I was born in San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina, a small town in the northwest region of Patagonia but now I live in Buenos Aires where I study Philosophy at the University of Buenos Aires. I enjoy long conversations on subjects ranging from the universe, physics, philosophy, religion and atheism to music, movies, social design, web design and life itself. I’m an enthusiast of topics like genetic research, evolutionary biology, internet, information technology and technology in general. One of the things I enjoy the most is writing. I write short science fiction tales -Ray Bradbury being my biggest influence- and I keep many blogs.
I got interested in computers when I was 6 and since I was 15 I work as a web designer. I’ve been a community manager of two big websites for the past three years. I also collaborate as a tech assistant and consultant with an NGO from my hometown that focuses on preventing HIV, STDs and drug addictions by giving workshops and making awareness campaigns. On my spare time I play the acoustic guitar and sing.
