UK, July 10, 2018.- The data is the new oil of the 21st century. And the personal data of each human being is the object of desire of private companies, public administrations and other interest groups.
The protection of our personal data is endangered, above all, by the technological giants and the social networks we carry on smartphones. That magical device, connected to the Internet, where we carry our whole life and that we can not despise.

UK, June 14, 2018.- The big dreams, the impossible ideas, the utopia in the construction sector at the end are possible facts, realizable ideas. The big cities struggle to grow orderly in their buildings, in their mobility and for the benefit of citizens. For this reason, the autonomous and electric car industry will be a driver of big changes. But, engineers, architects, construction professionals always advance more than computer programs. I just read in The Guardian this curious architectural project in China and it seems to come from the future:

UK, March 13, 2017.- Can they invade our privacy with a smartphone off and with a TV off?. It seems that we do believe the latest papers published by Wikileaks on the procedures of the CIA. Smart devices appear to use the battery to emit data, even if they are not turned on. That’s why I wonder if in the era of implementing internet in all the objectives of our personal and professional lives the best way to guarantee our privacy is to turn off the Internet … and now … remove the battery from the mobile. And this can not always be done, because on many smartphones and laptops the battery is soldered to the motherboard. The information read in The Guardian is as follows:

UK, December 17, 2016.- They say that the fourth industrial revolution is the one we are living thanks to the Internet. But on the verge of reaching 2017, I ask myself this question: Is the Internet a Universal Public Service or a Private Service ?. I refer to the Internet as a right more than we have the human beings that we live on Planet Earth. And this doubt arises when I read information like the following in The Guardian:

Britain, January 7, 2016.- To start the year 2016 I recommend reading, slowly, an economic analysis in the british newspaper The Guardian. Here just I published an extract, but is best read in full on the website of this newspaper. Death or not capitalism is one of the most discussed topics in the last 25 years debate. This reflection will help you understand if we are at the birth of a new economic system:

Britain, November 13, 2015.- We suffer the greatest economic recession of the last hundred years. Each country has faced this economic cycle differently. I have carefully read the diagnosis published in The Guardian. And I have here because it provides data, charts and conclusions that serve for debate and reinforce strategies for the future. The thesis of this English newspaper, one of the most influential is that Britain, has faced this economic downturn better. I invite you to read their arguments:
