The El Paso News Organization is changing

Those that have known me for any period of time know that my belief is that information empowers everyone. Unfiltered information, however unpalatable it might be, is the nexus to prosperity as it shines the light on those trying to hide in darkness. I also believe that we all have our own reality based on our own perceptions. It is our reality and thus it cannot be wrong. We should be allowed to express our perceptions so that others can glean something from them, if they like.

I launched the El Paso News platform hoping to build it as a source of expression for anyone interested in expressing themselves. Very few took up the challenge and I found myself doing all of the expressing. Therefore I’ve decided to make a change.

I am making this platform my personal blog.

I am currently in the precipice of significant changes both professionally and personally. And I have a lot to say. As some of you know, my interests are diverse and cover a range of disciplines. Professionally I am in the technology sector and I am about to launch a very interesting web-based product. Personally, having lived in Europe, Mexico and the US I am always delving into geopolitics and I am always studying history and military strategies.

Therefore I am sure my topics will cover those subjects significantly but you shouldn’t be surprised to find an occasional off topic post as my new personal life begins to take shape. As for changes to this site there won’t be many. I’m withdrawing the stipend offer for writers I made a while back and my focus will move away from El Paso politics to a more global outreach. I will be adding the complete archive of the El Paso Tribune here as many of those topics are still relevant. Other than that, the only other difference will be that the articles will no longer appear on Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s as they were before. New articles will appear when I feel I have to comment on a topic.

For those that may want a platform to say something, feel free to submit an article and I will consider it for future publication. Either way I’ll let you know of my decision. And now for some “cover my ass” legalese. Feel free to skip to the next paragraph.

Occasionally I may write or make a comment about a product or a company I am currently involved in. First, the comment is my opinion only and is not a release to the public domain. Second, any comments I may make in relation to the financial or wellbeing of any entity I am involved in, is based on forward looking statements and are not meant as an endorsement or a guarantee of future success. I encourage you to look at all regulatory documents for specific information. Finally, the commentary and content is owned by El Paso News Organization, Inc. and any reproduction of the content, other than for commentary purposes, is strictly prohibited.

Without further ado, I welcome you to my rants and raves and I look forward to you challenging me on my notions with your thoughtful comments. The only thing I know for sure is that I may not always be right, but I’m more right than wrong! So start sending them my way. ¡Saludos!
