.

Welcome to my blog!
Little by little I'll be writing, but now I'm not sure how to start ..At first, I'll talk about different topics that we've studied at the university,but I think that later, I'll write about different places that I've been..so maybe this blog will be like a "Cuaderno de Bitácora".
I want proposals, comments and even criticism!
Kisses,
Miss L.

CENSURA.

Esta semana, el Hands On Project me pareció uno de los más interesantes; la censura, o más bien el ciberactivismo, acción que como todos sabreis, nace tras una presión censora.
Hoy yendo hacia la universidad en el metro, iba leyendo el Mundo, y leí un artículo que hizo que se me viniese a la cabeza el trabajo de esta semana; habla precisamente de esas peticiones de censura que hacen los diversos gobiernos para censurar diversos contenidos de Google.
Nuestro país estaba en los primeros puestos del "ránking", aunque los directivos de este coloso de internet han afirmado a pies juntillas que en España se respeta la libertad de expresión.
Mi pregunta es..¿quién marca el límite entre lo lícito y lo ilícito a la hora de expresarnos?¿qué criterios se siguen a la hora de censurar? Con estas 2 preguntas me despido hasta mañana.

Un beso.

SNP


"..aunque ahora Mattia estaba allí, cerrados los ojos, sumido en pensamientos a ella inaccesibles, todo parecía aclarársele de pronto: le había pedido que viniera porque lo necesitaba, porque desde el día que se despidieron en aquel rellano su vida había caído en un pozo y ya no había salido; él era el cabo de aquella madeja interior que los años no habían sino enredar, y si aún había una posibilidad de desenmarañarla, ahora tenía a su alcance tirar de ese cabo."
Giordano,Paolo. "La Soledad de Los Números Primos"

Sí, quizás ese cúmulo de palabras suene a pastelada; no lo niego. Pero el libro al que pertenece esa pastelada, merece la pena. Yo soy una persona que leo, pero con gran lentitud. Pero en este caso, he devorado este libro en 3 días..me enganché totalmente; cuando lo he terminado me quedé con ganas de más; supongo que fue porque cansada de los amoríos imposibles de otro autor italiano, Federico Moccia, necesitaba "un descanso" de tanto amor pasteloso. Este libro es lo contrario; es el antiamor totalmente, aunque con ápices de historia romántica.
Sin duda alguna la lectura de este libro me ha abierto los ojos; en la vida, siempre va a haber problemas que parecen imposibles de arreglar, pero siempre acaba habiendo algo que nos ayuda a seguir adelante; que nos ayuda a ver todo desde otra perspectiva.Porque a veces, la gente que parece que no merece la pena, es la que nos acaba marcando.
Un libro delicioso, recomendable, increíble, que hace replantearse qué es realmente la soledad.

Arriving Home So Late.





Tenía ya ganas de empezar a escribir libremente.
Bueno, como ya dije en la entrada,dedicaré este blog a diversos viajes que he echo a lo largo del tiempo -qué raro suena jajajaja-.
Ahora,voy a colgar unas fotos que he echo este fin de semana en Galicia, mi tierra, ya que con unas fotos se puede expresar todo lo que se quiere; mucha gente dice que siempre hace mal tiempo, cosa que no voy a negar, pero después de tantos meses en Madrid, ver esa lluvia intensa, esos cielos totalmente oscurecidos me ha echo hasta cierta "Ilusión".
Cuando un gallego está lejos de su tierra, se dice que tiene MORRIÑA, pena de estar lejos. Y la verdad es que desde que yo me vine a Madrid me he dado cuenta de que realmente sí que existe esa morriña; que no hay nada como volver a casa; no hay nada como volver a Galicia.

Welcome..to my life?


This weekend, finally I had the opportunity to come back home.
When I started to talk with my mother, I saw that she was trying to say something,but she didn't started. What would be happening to her?
Then, I threw and asked her what she was trying to say.
She started telling me that one evening, when she was bored, she put my name in GOOGLE and 2 things went out for her: my Facebook and my Blog. The worst thing of everything is that she entered to investigate about my life in Madrid.
After saying this to me, I became very nervous, since in some time ago I made myself a piercing in the nose. My parents knew that I had taken a piercing … after one evening of gossip on my PERSONAL pages.

After this, I begin a new post; the privacy in Internet.
Why can see information about me?
Is not it supposed that Factbook's pages and Blog are private, and that therefore, they should not go out in Google?
Why my parents can see my real life in Madrid?
Why an stranger can know where I live?

We have the right to privacy,but it's clear that on the Internet that right is absent; from my point of view,the network violate too many rights and standards that should be basic and mandatory in this complicated society in which we live. I don't think that any stranger should be able to see my pictures or know where I live. People like me, knows in advance that in our profiles there's a privacy option, which provides for several filters to leave or not free access, thing that I see perfect; we also know that if we upload photos to the network,or comment on details of our life, other people will see it; if the user really didn't want to show his/her daily routine, they would leave the photos on the familiar album at home. What I'm trying to understand is why you must leave the information,for example, that I form part of these social networks; search pages should be purely and simply to search for specific info and not people.




"As the Internet progressed, it was not long before many people realized what Internet was quite insecure.
Hence the idea to use encryption algorithms to protect the information traveling through the network. The basic idea is simple, travel information and could be captured. In 1991, Pgp Was born.
Pgp is one of the free solutions to use encryption on the Internet. Mainly e-mail, but also has other functions, including encrypt an entire hard disk. The pgp works in a very clever wy. When you install Pgp, the first thing to do is create a "key pair"; one is "Private" and the other is "Public."
The user should distribute the public key to people that he/she knows and she/he know that will send emails with such sensitive information. The private should never leave our hands.With the public key, someone else can add that key to the "flash" of pgp, and write a message to encrypt it. For example,
"Encrypt message using the public key of Nicholas Goals" . Thus, the only way to decrypt the message quickly is with the private key that only the user possess.
The private keys can be very long passwords and be up to 4000 bytes or so."
Are we threatened by the lack of privacy? Should we ignore new technologies to achieve true privacy?
Who knows..

It's time to debate.

"The really important thing to understand what is happening is not to understand the functioning of these tools -Internet,social networks..- is knowing how people use them"

Jose Luis Orihuela.

Are blogs and social networks "contaminating" our profession?
From my point of view, there are good and bad topics.
Some of the bad are obvious; in Internet, everybody can write ideas,posts,news...without being journalist. Sometimes, people "add" some "little" lies to these informations, or change the new...
the problem is that we don't know when we're at a real new or at a real lie.
On the other hand, social networks improve our capacity to know what is happening around us; with one click,we can know what is happening in France or China, for example.
Here we can see 2 types of journalist: citizen journalist and professional journalist; professionals have one mission: writte news and get paid because of it.




We know that people have the right of talking, but they have to admit that journalists have academic knowledge; journalists know how to write;how to contrast news..and these skills are basic to write about something...SO what we have to do,us, journalists?

Sevilla Has An Special Colour.











These are some photos of my trip to Sevilla!
