Pablo Kleinman

Pablo Kleinman is an Argentine-born American entrepreneur and journalist, pioneer of the development of online services in Latin America. He graduated from the University of Southern California School of International Relations (USC, Los Angeles) and went on to study at the London Business School and at the HEC School of Management in Paris, where he obtained an MBA.

In 1986, at age 15, Pablo set up an electronic bulletin board system (BBS) in Buenos Aires called "TCC: The Computer Connection" which was one of the first in the region and the first to run under a Microsoft-designed platform. A year later, TCC became FidoCenter, the first node of the worldwide FidoNet network in Latin America. Pablo Kleinman was the Coordinator of FidoNet for the whole of Latin America (FidoNet's Zone 4) between 1987 and 1991. During that period, FidoNet became the largest public-access computer network in the region. It grew throughout the different countries in the region and reached several hundreds of access points in dozens of Latin American cities. Kleinman was also the author of WorldPol, a policy proposal that was published originally in 1991 and constituted the first democratic organization proposal in cyberspace.

Many of the original participants of FidoNet in Latin America became the pioneers of the Internet in the following years. Kleinman was an active participant of the first Spanish-language newsgroups and was one of the founders of several of the Usenet groups dedicated to Latin American countries. Shortly after and during the following ten years, Kleinman participated in the founding of several online services companies.

Kleinman began working as a journalist in 1989 as Latin American correspondent for Billboard Magazine, the first one to cover the region for the prestigious trade publication.

He currently resides in New York City and is Editor-in-Chief of the Spanish-language political journal Diario de América. He is also a frequent columnist about political and social issues for several different publications in Latin America, Spain and the United States. During the 2008 presidential elections in the United States he began co-authoring the popular blog "Democracia en América" on Libertad Digital, one of the most important news and opinion websites in Spain.

He describes his political orientation as Libertarian and calls himself an "ex-Democrat", although in his writings he often supports Social liberalism, Fiscal conservatism and economic Neoliberalism, and hawkish foreign policy views similar to those of Neocons.
