Alberto Saldamando

Founder and Editor
I’m Alberto C. Saldamando, Founder and Editor-in-Chief at ElMundoTech. I have been amazed by the marvels of technology, science and imagination. As a kid, I became a fan of US TV shows and Japanese animation such as Lost in Space and Mazinger Z respectively. In the early-to-mid 1980s, I started playing video games  when the big machines arrived to Peru at the places we used to call “pinball” to refer to the arcades. Also in that decade, my attention for computing grew more when I learnt the BASIC computer language at an institute which introduced me to the use of computers and programming, years before the arrival of Microsoft Windows and the Internet to millions of homes.

Because of my passion for technology and journalism, I began writing for Impremedia’s La Prensa weekly newspaper (2006-2008) while working in the Education field in Central Florida.  In 2008, I thought about the need for US Latino journalists writing more content about technology in Spanish, the main reason for the creation of El Mundo Tech, since late July of 2008, but during that time I also saw the need of writing posts in both languages.

Follow ElMundoTech via this site and the social networks. Stay tuned for more very soon.


El Mundo Tech is a bilingual web site with news, reports and reviews about the Internet, electronic devices, software & hardware, space, videogames, anime/manga, Geek culture and more. Since July 2008, the purpose of EMT is to inform, educate and entertain people via the Internet in the language of their choice.

In July 2013, the original blog began transitioning into this web site which will offer in-depth news and reviews, podcasts, short video news, and more content in English and Spanish.

After two years of freelancing for a local Spanish-language weekly newspaper in Orlando, FL, I decided to open up a blog to deliver more news and content daily to Latinos and non-Latinos alike.
