Hola! Pues otra vez (la tercera en estos tres años) me ha llegado el link al video compartido vía email o redes sociales, con aquello de "cada vez que abres el video entrarán 5 céntimos para la causa", así que podéis ver que el bulo sigue y la gente no logra tomar conciencia de que es necesario donar. Hospital Sant Joan de Déu, aprovechad que el video es hermoso e inspirador, y que no se pueden despegar los ojos de él, os animo a que hagáis la aclaración dentro mismo del video (luego del cartel del niño animándonos a hacernos donantes, podéis incluir uno que ponga "si sólo viste este video no nos ha llegado tu contribución, es necesario que te hagas donante" o algo así). Segunda opción: aclararlo en un link o en un tag. Por favor hacerlo, estoy seguro que estaréis perdiendo donaciones porque la gente se cree el mail, ve el video y se queda tan tranquila creyendo que han colaborado.

+Hospital Sant Joan de Déu Entiendo que resulta difícil, por eso os animo a aclararlo en una anotación al video (podéis ver cómo hacerlo en https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/4523183?rd=1), o incluso a volver a editar el video para agregar a un niño sosteniendo un cartel que lo aclare...Es que me da mucha pena las donaciones que estaréis perdiendo...

Recommended article on Document Management and Dematerialization [in French] http://j.mp/vc99cB by Alfonso González (http://fr.linkedin.com/in/alfgon)
Par l'étendue de ses processus administratifs et ses volumes, l'intérim se prête idéalement à la dématérialisation. A condition d'en passer par un changement radical de ses méthodes de travail.

Ok, now I'm officially worried (thanks God I'm still not officially stupid)
 
If you have any money in Spain, in any bank in Spain, take it out. Put it in a British/German/American bank, not a branch but a bank outside of Spain.

There is no reason why anyone should risk his/her lifetime savings in a financial system that, at the moment, has no backing internally and externally. Either EU, or Germany for that matter, come to the conclusion that Spain is embarking on enough austerity and Spain is given financial guarantees (as US banks were given by the FED in 2008) or Spain will default and leave the euro.

Also if I am wrong and you followed this friendly advise, there is really no cost in taking your savings out and bring them back when confidence is restored. If the EU comes to Spain's rescue then all you need to do is bring your savings back. Small cost, potentially enormous reward.  

Indeed my hope here is that soon, EU stands behind Spanish banks, not that they fall apart of course.  The moment EU does this it will be safe to leave your money in Spain.

Great post by Tim O'Reilly, about #SOPA, #PIPA and the real dimension of the "piracy problem"
Tim O'Reilly originally shared:
 
Before Solving a Problem, Make Sure You've Got the Right Problem

I was pleased to see the measured tone of the White House response to the citizen petition about #SOPA and #PIPA

https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions#/!/response/combating-online-piracy-while-protecting-open-and-innovative-internet

and yet I found myself profoundly disturbed by something that seems to me to go to the root of the problem in Washington: the failure to correctly diagnose the problem we are trying to solve, but instead to accept, seemingly uncritically, the claims of various interest groups. The offending paragraph is as follows:

"Let us be clear—online piracy is a real problem that harms the American economy, and threatens jobs for significant numbers of middle class workers and hurts some of our nation's most creative and innovative companies and entrepreneurs. It harms everyone from struggling artists to production crews, and from startup social media companies to large movie studios. While we are strongly committed to the vigorous enforcement of intellectual property rights, existing tools are not strong enough to root out the worst online pirates beyond our borders."

In the entire discussion, I've seen no discussion of credible evidence of this economic harm. There's no question in my mind that piracy exists, that people around the world are enjoying creative content without paying for it, and even that some criminals are profiting by redistributing it. But is there actual economic harm?

In my experience at O'Reilly, the losses due to piracy are far outweighed by the benefits of the free flow of information, which makes the world richer, and develops new markets for legitimate content. Most of the people who are downloading unauthorized copies of O'Reilly books would never have paid us for them anyway; meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of others are buying content from us, many of them in countries that we were never able to do business with when our products were not available in digital form.

History shows us, again and again, that frontiers are lawless places, but that as they get richer and more settled, they join in the rule of law. American publishing, now the largest publishing industry in the world, began with piracy. (I have a post coming on that subject on Monday.)

Congress (and the White House) need to spend time thinking hard about how best to grow our economy - and that means being careful not to close off the frontier, or to harm those trying to settle it, in order to protect those who want to remain safe at home. British publishers could have come to America in the 19th century; they chose not to, and as a result, we grew our own indigenous publishing industry, which relied at first, in no small part, on pirating British and European works.

If the goal is really to support jobs and the American economy, internet "protectionism" is not the way to do it.

It is said (though I've not found the source) that Einstein once remarked that if given 60 minutes to save the world, he would spend 55 of them defining the problem. And defining the problem means collecting and studying real evidence, not the overblown claims of an industry that has fought the introduction of every new technology that has turned out, in the end, to grow their business rather than threaten it.

P.S. If Congress and the White House really want to fight pirates who are hurting the economy, they should be working to rein in patent trolls. There, the evidence of economic harm is clear, in multi-billion dollar transfers of wealth from companies building real products to those who have learned how to work the patent system while producing no value for consumers.

P. P.S. See also my previous piece on the subject of doing an independent investigation of the facts rather than just listening to the appeals of lobbyists, https://plus.google.com/107033731246200681024/posts/5Xd3VjFR8gx

Protesters around the world have something in common: wariness, even contempt, toward traditional politicians and the democratic political process they preside over.

Cuál sería un buen estimador de las elecciones en Argentina (no encuestas)? Ya que todas las encuestas fallaron a la hora de predecir el triunfo y el margen de Cristina Fernández de Kirchner en las PASO de Argentina, me pregunto al revés: qué número (de la economía real, de la política, de la sociedad o de cualquier otro aspecto de la vida de Argentina) estaría cerca del porcentaje de votos que finalmente cosechó CFK, el 14 de Agosto fecha de las elecciones? Se podría utilizar ese número como "estimador del caudal electoral del oficialismo en Argentina"?
