Los libros de Rose George me resultan altamente inspiradores. Tanto como que debo cerrar el libro constantemente cada tres o cuatro páginas para mirar al techo y recapacitar. Sucedío con “90% de todo” y ahora también con “La mayor necesidad”.
When I bought my Heco Victa 300 3 years ago, I thought it was a big deal. These pair of speakers looks great and Heco seemed to be a serious German company. Definitely, I was wrong: one tweeter got mute. Seems Heco tweeters get damaged easily since I have read many users with the same […]
Since Kitkat came to my tablet, it’s driving me insane. It is not related with errors or bugs, it is regarding how it works with SD card storage. Now, the SD card has only one owner: the OS. It means, we are not able to save files there, so you can figure out how much […]

Nowadays I am a confirmed reader, but I have discovered the pleasure of reading late. I have to recognize –with a little bit of shame- that I started reading again about twelve years ago more or less and I wonder if getting married with a librarian is the reason. These years I have been searching a guilty of my lack of interest in the past, and finally I have found him: my literature teacher. When I was fifteen I had to read a lot of master opus of Spanish literature and I do not doubt about their value and quality, but It was not appropriate for me in that period of my life. Books by José Zorrilla, Gustavo Adolfo Becker or Fernando de Rojas had to be read by a young boy who preferred playing computer games or chasing beautiful girls. I was suffering a hormonal explosion and that kind of books could not help me. No wonder.
Being part of an IT department could be a reason why I hate meetings. My kind of job consists of developing projects and staying in front of the personal computer. We need to be creative, rigourous and concentrated. These behaviors are very important to reach our goals, and spend time talking and meeting is a waste of time. Our kind of job is pretty different from marketing or sales department. We don’t need to persuade anyone or sell anything, we only need to focus on our work and accomplish our deadlines. Although I don’t like meetings I have to recognize that they are necessary to organize and analize how we can do projects and set deadlines.
What is the meaning of “progress”? We must know it to answer with property because to progress, we need to improve without collateral damage. Technicians, engineers, politicians, medicals, and business men are people who help progress, but they need to respect and accomplish some basic rules, and the main rule: Respect for humans and nature. A few years ago I read this: “Progress without human respect, is not progress”, and I would like to explain it with a clear example.
