I am a huge believer in Virtual Reality. clasificación Mundial 2011-2012 África En África se amplió la distancia entre los buenos y los malos alumnos Los países que reprimieron las protestas populares vivieron caídas vertiginosas Si bien las primaveras árabes de 2011 no desbordaron el África subsahariana hasta el punto de hacer caer a los gobiernos, algunos regímenes enfrentaron fuertes reivindicaciones políticas y sociales. Los periodistas que cubrían estas manifestaciones con frecuencia sufrieron de lleno la respuesta brutal de las fuerzas policíacas, prontas a reprimir sin discernimiento y a atacar a los testigos molestos. Este fue el caso de Angola (132º lugar), donde algunos periodistas fueron detenidos durante las manifestaciones en septiembre. Los países más cerrados y autoritarios, en la cola de la clasificación Por el control de los medios de comunicación y de la libertad de expresión en general que ejercen las autoridades, Reporteros sin Fronteras considera que la situación es “muy grave” en Ruanda (156º) y en Guinea Ecuatorial (161º).

Freedom of information: my monstrous idea will keep corporate tyrants at bay | George Monbiot Modern government could be interpreted as a device for projecting corporate power. Since the 1980s, in Britain, the US and other nations, the primary mission of governments has been to grant their sponsors in the private sector ever greater access to public money and public life. There are several means by which they do so: the privatisation and outsourcing of public services; the stuffing of public committees with corporate executives; and the reshaping of laws and regulations to favour big business. With these increasing powers come diminishing obligations. In this column I will make a proposal that sounds – at first – monstrous, but I hope to persuade you is both reasonable and necessary: that freedom of information laws should be extended to the private sector. The very idea of a corporation is made possible only by a blurring of the distinction between private and public. Privatisation and outsourcing ensure that private business is, or should be, everyone's business.

Business - Jordan Weissmann - Why Porn and Journalism Have the Same Big Problem Nobody wants to pay for their products. Reuters The smut business just isn't what it used to be. The early days of the Internet were a bonanza for major pornography studios, as the web transformed adult entertainment into an instant, unlimited, and completely private experience -- always just a credit card charge and a cable modem away. Stuart Lawley, the entreprenuer behind .XXX, has a plan to try and reclaim some of that lost revenue -- micropayments. Next year, ICM plans to introduce a proprietary micropayment system. Yikes. In other words, convincing people to pay for to watch sex is a much taller task these days than getting them to pay for a song. In fact, it's a bit like getting them to pay for a newspaper. The fantasy that small payments will save publishers as they move online is really a fantasy that monopoly pricing power can be re-established over we users. What holds for journalism in this case holds for sex.
