    The Integration of Two Spanish Experiences
    The Integration of Two Spanish ExperiencesI find that the concept of beBee may be best explained by a metaphor extracted from another Spanish experience. The concept of specialized hives becomes very clear with the example of Spanish digital start-up Mylibreto offers advanced widgets to...

    #55 This is very timely comment Sara @Sara Jacobovici as I have just joined newly-established hive "Only Humans Tell Stories". I am sure what applies to the idea of books hive applies to yours as well. Soon, the story of newly-established hives must be told. Thank you Sara for your appreciation.

    Perfect model @Ali Anani. From beginning to end you incorporated the metaphor clearly. And it works! Personally, as a self-confessed bookaholic, I love the fact that the example you used is a hive for books.

    I have just published a buzz on "who should make the first move"? in which I referred to the healthy discussions going on here:

    The title of the buzz includes the word Spanish and I was hoping to get more comments from Spaniards. Sometimes directing a message to promising .hives may instead get other hives interested. What do you think @Pamela L. Williams View more

    #43 @Ali Anani so it comes down to a matter of choice. What one wants to 'be' - a 'free bee' on a discovery journey crossing different paths or a 'disciplined bee' moving on a predefined path. I am happy with both as it a matter of 'personal' choice. No intrusion in 'personal' matters :))

    #46 I ask indirectly @Pamela L. Williams. For example, do you know of any body who would help me understand this topic? It also depends on the strength of relations and the stronger it is, the more direct I can be

    Ah, but Ali, who is to determine what words are appropriate; the asker or the one being asked? The asker may believe they are being careful and respectful but the one being asked may have sensitivities that the asker has no knowledge of. That is a barrier I have encountered before and it was an extremely uncomfortable situation. it is a precarious road to travel. #44

    #42 @Pamela L. Williams now your amazing mind has bring in a very interesting subject to think, discuss, deliberate and share. Our multiple identities and different lenses used by others to look at on us. We better keep it for some other time as there is lot in it to chew and consume.

    #42 I wouldn't feel embarrassed to ask @Pamela L. Williams. There is a saying "if you don't ask then you get no answer". I would rather get an answer than staying in the dark. It boils down o how we ask and the words we use. Do you agree?

    #41 Dear @Anees Zaidi- some people start writing with a goal in mind. These people are very focused in their writing. Others see writing as discovery journey and new paths and possibilities emerge. Each one has its merits. The styles is different. So, I believe that we may write a post and then decide where to post it, or if focused from the beginning then the most hives may be decided. It is a two--ways traffic. By the way I have noticed that @Pamela L. Williams has responded to your comment, but with all honesty I shall read it only after posting this comment.

    In your example Anees, it could actually go into more than one hive and that is the reason that beBee allows 3 choices when you create honey. It would be of interest to: Travel, Art, and perhaps we should have a Global Cultures hive in which bees could share special information about their culture but also those that they encounter on travels such as your trip to Turkey. Dean @Dean Owen's posts with this trips around Asia would fit into this category. Or @Lada Prkic post on the Croatian cakes that are such an important part of that culture. Just my thoughts! I happen to love the diversity I encounter on social media; Fascinating to me but sometimes I'm afraid of offending if I ask too direct a question about their country, religion, ceremonies, etc. #41

    #36 @Pamela L. Williams your excellent example of 'a wildly wonderful scientific discovery while on vacation' is the reason I say 'write' before you select a 'hive' unless the subject matter is a specialized one or has got inspiration from the contents in a specialized hive. Here I give you a hands on example. Suppose I convert my lengthy comment at #21 in response to @Ali Anani comment at #11 to a post, where should I register it. In a Travel Memories Hive, or a Philosophy of Life Hive or Work of Art Hive? When I started writing it I don't have any specialized subject/content in my mind. I just kept writing, re-writing, erasing and again re-writing until I could give logical and understandable shape (seeing from my eyes and to the best of my ability) to my thoughts. In the process I took the help of different fields of studies to help make my work relevant, understandable and worthy to consume. Thereafter I leave it to the best judgement of my readers to evaluate it, reject it or accept it, like it or dislike it, store it (in the Hive of their choice) or discard it. That much freedom I must have.

    Quite right Qamar and it is part of what @Javier beBee was trying to say in a recent post he made. I believe that since this is an Affinity network where both our business and personal interest are both relevant that we must maintain the stance of keeping them in the relevant hives; As an example; I don't want to read about vacations in the Science and Research hive unless a wildly wonderful discovery was made while on vacation! #33
