La mala práxis periodística y el cambio.

Hay veces que uno navegando por internet se encuentra con todo tipo de noticias. En España , para bien o para mal, estamos acostumbrados a leer por parte de nuestros medios periodísticos todo tipo de historias a menudo rocambolescas que tratan desde comportamientos incívicos y temerarios al volante hasta los escándalos de corrupción más alarmantes y esperpénticos .

El caso es que a la sociedad Española se nos han hablado tanto de este tipo de casos, que aparentemente son tan comunes, que ya los tomamos como normales. “Es que España es así”, “El país va muy mal”…. Y es que es normal que lo pensemos, con los medios periodísticos de que dispone el país, ¿como cojones vamos a pensar bien de nada?

Hoy me he topado con una noticia acerca de una ayuda social para jóvenes que ha anunciado el gobierno para estudiantes en contratos de formación. Que digo yo si en vez de destinar esta ayuda de los fondos del estado, forzasen a las empresas a pagar a sus empleados en prácticas (que es como debería ser) este tipo de medidas no serían necesarias. Pero bueno, cualquier cosa o idea con tal de no hacer las cosas como dios manda.

El tema es que he leído la noticia  en diversos medios de comunicación y cuando he abierto el 20 minutos he pensado “vale, hasta aqui”. Y lo he pensado así porque había visto la misma noticia en el mismo medio apenas cinco minutos antes redactada de una manera que no era tan ofensiva (pero que deduzco vendería muchísimos menos periódicos).

What I learned from frustation.

Experience is what you get when you don’t get what you wanted. If I could count the number of times I’ve felt frustrated in my life, i’d probably never finish this post. Before we start, mero reader, please bear in mind that writing this post is going to make me relive frustrating – and somewhat funny- memories. I hope you – as i did – can get something out of them.

Motivational post, in 3…2…1… Continue reading “What I learned from frustation.”

To whom it may concern…

Well. it’s been quite some time that I wanted to open a blog and today I finally did it. I guess I couldn’t be bothered because, well apparently people don’t usually read blogs that much anymore. And if you think this is just bullshit… you might be right.

The main reason why I’ve decided to open up a blog now, after so long, is because I’ve been looking for a job and i’ve applied to many companies. One of these companies – Toptal – wanted me to write a post of why would I want to work with them. Apparently they believe “good writing requires an organized, concise mind, a quality that is essential for great developers to have”.

This got me thinking… maybe they are right… I mean, I never thought about it that way. Many of my colleagues at college were brilliant programmers but quite introvert when it came to writing down or expressing themselves. I always figured out expressing emotions, feelings and thoughts, had little to do with algorithms, math, design and software patterns. For all I know i’m a pretty good programmer, so if I nail this, then they might have a point!

Oh, my dear reader…  and just to give you a heads up before I start, this is not going to be a love sucking contest in which I express my love towards Toptal. I barely know the company so I’d rather let them say why they are a lovely company doing what they do (which , to be honest, i’m not entirely sure…). Soooooo here we go and wish me luck!!
