Pedro Aguiar is an undefined concept.

During the 1990s, he was dictator of an imaginary country in Latin America, when he enjoyed great benefits and total isolation from Western pop culture. Nevertheless, inspired by boredom, has abandoned his fatherland and moved to Wikipedia, where he contributes with articles about his profession, his ideology and his musical taste.

Micro-résumé[edit]

Graduated in Journalism at the University of Rio de Janeiro and studying Film at the Universidade Federal Fluminense. Former student of Graphic design also at the UFRJ.

Currently editor for inter:BR - portal do Jornalismo Internacional (website about International Journalism and foreign news business in Brazil). Formerly foreign news reporter for Jornal do Brasil (2006), intern at O Globo newspaper and CBN radio network (2005), and at EFE news agency (2004).

Worked as a professional screenwriter for TV (Rizoma doc-drama show, aired on Canal Universitario in Rio de Janeiro) and web designer for some websites (like Infância80, Vide Vídeo, and LOSS).

In academic field, his research interests are in Communications, Aesthetics and Power.

His main activity in the latest months has been keeping and moderating the Research Network on International Journalism, currently with 140 journalists, scholars, students, and researchers who study or work with foreign news press coverage, in Brazil.

Contributions to Wikipedia[edit]

In Wikipedia (no accent; I pronounce it "uiquipidia"), he collaborates mainly in articles related to Communication and Journalism, including biographies of some journalists and fields of expertise (as pt:Jornalismo internacional). He also created and organized templates (side tables ) for pt:Predefinição:Jornalismo both in Portuguese and Spanish.

The first article he created was pt:Passatempo (Hobby), but he's proud of being creator of pt:Jornalismo (Journalism) article, in [October 25, 2002].

More recently, he's back in contributing with his main subject of interest, which is Totalitarian aesthetics and, more specifically, Socialist realism.

He also takes time to translate some elementary articles (like pt:Maçã (Apple)), both from Spanish, and from English into Portuguese.

Geofiction, micronationalism, and other hobbies[edit]

His main hobby, since childhood, is Geofiction — creating and ellaborating imaginary places, since neighborhoods, cities, countries, continents, to planets. It was him who started the List of fictional nations and related articles in Portuguese Wikipedia. He is the founder and creator of Porto Claro, the fictitious country which inspired so-called micronations in Latin America.

Some of his creations:

  • Zarmut, Armatia, and Rupetia (1990)
  • Porto Claro (1992)
  • Volkarina (1999)
  • Marraguasca (2002)
  • Republic of Santana (2003)
  • Meridia (2004)

In some of these nations, he created his self-memorable fictitious dictators, like Peter Klausz, Mikale Smelnik, Eduardo Vasquella, Lorenzo Carbona, and Vespasiano Max.

Works of fiction[edit]

Although it is not his main talent - maybe not even one -, there ate some works of fiction authored by him, most of them never published, deserving no other record than a shelf.

My homonyms[edit]

I have known at least 5 other "Pedros Aguiars" in my life. I even studied with two of them, in school. When you search my name with Google, you can find at least as many homonyms and quasi-homonyms of mine:
