El privaci-apocalipsis cotidiano ante la perspectiva del 1 de marzo | Versvs
Bianka Hajdu, Marcadores de Cartograf: bianka
Los creadores del término big data en realidad querían decir big money, pero si lo dicen así, la primera sensación que generan es de rechazo a ese «99%».

Jane Foo, Learning Analytics 2012
I spend a lot of time on the bus, and it's pretty clear that educational institutions have invested more money in promoting themselves to the general (commuting) public over the past few years. In these times, it only makes sense.Today, however, I read a heading on a bus advertisement that I might have seen but have ignored so far, something along the lines of "Get your Bachelor's degree in engineeringsomething in two years!"
