Wow! 2 amazing innovations in one day! Let’s start what Microsoft did with Skype Translator. Google Translate has been around for quite a long time. It is great to get the sense of any written text in almost any language. But it isn’t really effective. I mean it translates, but it’s not always understandable. Google […]
Slides of the presentation I did today at BKF. Educacion vs and innovation. Let’s use technology in education. Let’s use it the right way. Technology itself can’t change the way we teach.

What next? NextNextNext level. I can’t wait to get my hands on this. I […]
I found this great infographic on the Boundless blog. The history of the education in the US from the beginning. The infographic has a section showing education in the next 20 years. This last section is very optimistic about using technology in education. I still think that technology can’t replace handwriting, black/white boards completely. Technology […]
SugarSync started around the same time as Dropbox. So this is not about another newcomer in the cloud storage business. In the last couple of years many cloud storage providers came along. I kept using SugarSync beside other services. It has a nice Android app and the web interface is usable, too. Last year I discovered […]
I came across this video on Richard Wiseman’s blog. I knew many of the optical illusions showcased in the video but still it is a great collection put together by BuzzFeed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vTyEy7Dn70 How many did you get right?
