My name is Álex Barredo. I am a programmer turned analyst, turned podcaster. Currently researching about “onlineness”: why people do what they do & say what they say online.
What I do for a living:
- I write a daily newsletter about technology with a podcast to match. Both are pretty neat.
- I’m the tech lead at Cuonda.com, a lovely full-fledged podcasting platform.
- I work with talent and advertising agencies at VoiceUp.es managing sponsorships and marketing campaigns.
- I wrote about technology for La Vanguardia, leading newspaper in Catalonia and Spain. You can read all my articles over three years there.
- I wrote newsletter in English about Apple: https://apple.substack.com. I never formally stopped, but I almost never update it anymore.
- For the next five years, I researched about consumer electronics in Spain and Western Europe as an independent contractor.
- I failed as a founder of two startups.
- I worked at Carat doing marketing for about three years.
