Finalmente me he decidido a escribir un tutorial sobre como tener una cuenta de Twitter anónima y como publicar tweets en la misma de forma protegida. La razón por la que me he animado a hacer una pequeña guía para esto es debido a las consecuencias en las que puede derivar en nuestro país hoy en día expresar ciertas opiniones a través de las redes sociales, siendo Twitter una de las mas significativas. No con ello quiero presentarme a favor o en contra de ciertos tipos de comportamiento, si no simplemente defender nuestra privacidad en internet ya que como cualquier buen residente de la red, soy consciente de que muchas veces se utiliza el anonimato de internet para descargarnos con independencia de lo que hagamos o dejemos de hacer en el mundo no-virtual. De la misma manera, considero que la monitorizacion de las redes sociales por parte de los poderes y las represalias que estos llevan a cabo en ocasiones, presentan una grave amenaza a nuestra libertad de expresión, a nuestra privacidad y a la neutralidad de una red que cada vez se encuentra mas bajo la tutela de los intereses de unos pocos. Dicho esto, me pongo a ello.
This past weekend I went to a show at a local bar in Santander. Not even halfway there I was already hating the fact that I had forgotten to bring earplugs again, and knowing how little regard this particular bar has for music volume I was already preparing myself for a long night of intense music and post-show ear ringing.
The bands were LCH and Kokoshca, both from Spain, and I originally didn’t expect much from them, since a friend of mine had been talking constantly about both of them for the past week. We could say I had grown tired of their names without having even gone to the show yet.
This, however changed rapidly soon into the show.
LCH is a well known local band and as usual, they did not disappoint. It is however the second band that played that night that I’d like to comment on. Positively that is, of course.
With a well staged performance followed by a homy atmosphere with sofas and not too many people, one might think it would lack some kick. But as they went through their setlist their music gained in strength and carried quite a punch. I would describe them as a renewed, slightly more on the Pop side version of The B52’s, although that might be due to their vocalists, whose voices resemble those of The B52’s.
Don’t believe when you confide is me, I don’t get your thrift – but you keep saying that we know the drill. I have to follow, have to follow the head. Humbleness is not the major thing, neither modesty. You’ve got a big ego indeed; is not as big as me. So what? SO WHAT? What do you think you’re doing? What? So what? So what do you think you’re doing now? Now all the big and broken promises, failing behind me. So what? So what? So what do you think you’re doing? What? SO WHAT? So what do you think you’re doing now?
Everything reminds me of you, from the movies to the music we knew, and I’m going round in circles and I don’t know what to do, coz’ everything reminds me of you.
Everyday’s a trip to the moon, everyday I tell myself “soon.. I won’t be going round in circles and I’ll know just what to do”.
Couse everything reminds me of you. Everything reminds me of you, from the movies to the music we knew, and I’m going round in circles and I don’t know what to do, coz’ everything reminds me of you.
I’m OK with the little you give. I’m ok and I’m not dropping a hint that it’s ok like this. OK, the contradiction is me, crash it off and you see no thing to fix. OK, the kid is me. /… / I’m fine when the daylight retreats. I feel it’s my retrieval of me, just what I want to see. /… / Hey! I need to touch what i thought I had: your back, my back, the back of our hands. /… / I know a place to be outta place, I’m not very far, far, far away. Hey! I need to touch what i thought I had: your back, my back, the back of our hands.
So, a couple of years ago i set myself to find a simple program that could perform simple digital algebra operations. Eventually i found Logic Friday, which turned out to be simple to use, fast and powerful enough for simple problems. It is basically a GUI for espresso and misII and it works wonderfully. However it is only available for windows, so here is a simple Mac version of Logic Friday (thanks to Wine). I have tested it in multiple apple computers running 10.8 and it worked fine.
All the credit to Sontrak (where you can download the original windows version and obtain further information on the Logic Friday tool) and to the espresso and misII tools*
Bueno pues aquí dejo el programa que hicimos hace poco en el centro cultural Eureka para el ciclo de Martes Gua Gua de podcasts sobre la música en la nube con la colaboración de Repion, que aceptaron a tocar en directo y a una entrevista!
As i look around the room, observing the people here, all of them looking for a job I’m told the schedule. It does not work for me, but i decide to stay anyways, i thought it could be interesting. It is a group interview.
There are about 30 of us, and the interviewer just asked us to sell her a tooth brush. An electric tooth brush. There are all kinds of people here. All of them with the same objective, getting this phone sales job. In a country mostly unemployed.
I’m only here looking for a student job that can fit into my universities schedule and this is a full time kind of thing. Everyone here probably needs it more than i do.
Just about 45% of the people here are capable of improvising a decent dialogue about this hypothetical electric tooth brush.
No one bought the brush, despite its rechargeable batteries. Or its interchangeable head. Or the colour options. Or its extreme high rotation speeds.
