  • Hacking education IX: educating by example

    They say that donkeys are led with a stick and a carrot, but that is a lie because nobody does it that way; if you see someone riding a donkey or a horse, what he is carrying in his hand is usually a riding crop, in addition to the bridle that has been put in his mouth when he...

  • Hacking education VIII: keeping the illusion alive

    At the age of six a child enters our educational system wanting to be an astronaut and leaves at the age of twenty-two wanting to be a civil servant. Why do we laminate their illusion? Why do we gradually turn them into little gray men? Why do we try to make them into something that has no place in the 21st century?

  • 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. Our system also obviates that the Internet exists, that a kid with a phone on a test can pull up Wikipedia and write a treatise....

Before, in order to earn - let's think about earning money...

    This news about Foxconn, a Chinese company that employs 1.2 million people and manufactures for Apple, Nintendo or Apple among other brands, has given me a lot to think about. Foxconn intends to replace one million of its workers with machines, no more and no less, and surely they will not be the most qualified workers and the most...

  • Innovate in business model, not in product

    Today we innovate more in business model than in product or service, we are designing the new paradigms of business management You do not know what the market wants but you can learn from it Testing is today faster and cheaper than ever. Fail and learn. Prototyping is back in fashion, the Industrial Revolution is in full swing....

  • Dropad review, android tablet for 140€.

    I've been using the Dropad for fifteen days, a tablet similar to the Samsung Galaxy tab 7′ but more limited than this one. I bought it to be used by small children, because paying the 500€ of rigor seemed to me a waste, especially when you risk that the child breaks it on the second day of use ....
