  • Hacking education VII: The Internet does exist

    I have already commented before that our educational system obviates money as if children do not know what a Skylanders video game, a Barbie or a pack of stickers cost.

  • Tangible fixed assets are a burden to growth

    For a company it is almost always better to rent than to buy for cash and tax reasons. The access to the financing is more and more difficult every day and the light company is imposed.

  • Emerging Systems II: Neutrality

    The most visual example of an emerging system are the anthills, the ants self-organize because they have no other choice and are gregarious, they have no hierarchies; and that happens on the Internet because anyone can publish a Wikileaks and overthrow a government.
