Wi-Fi passwords from airports around the world in one brilliant map Killing time before your flight can be a serious drag, but traveling just got a lot less painful thanks to this airport Wi-Fi map. Travel blogger and computer security engineer, Anil Polat, understands the struggle of sitting in an airport without free Wi-Fi, so he created a handy interactive map for airport-goers to easily find Wi-Fi passwords. The map, which Polat updates regularly, includes the Wi-Fi passwords and locations of dozens of airports around the world. By clicking on an airport, users receive specific directions on where to sit to best access the Wi-Fi connection, along with instructions for inputting the password. Say goodbye to those pesky mobile data charges and spotty hot spot connections and hello to the convenient reality of free airport Wi-Fi, people.

Mentalidad “Hacker”: un paradigma diferente de educación. Nuestro modelo de educación actual está en su mayoría centrado en la cultura del sentarse y escuchar, la cual es a su vez reforzada por los medios y los productos de consumo; incentivando un tipo de comportamiento que reduce a las personas a un rol pasivo, de esponja, sin ningún incentivo para la innovación. Por otro lado, los llamados “hackers” son el mejor ejemplo de una cultura centrada en el hacer y crear, creen que desarmando las cosas, viendo cómo funcionan y usando ese conocimiento para desarrollar cosas nuevas y más interesantes, es que el ser humano puede aprender lecciones fundamentales sobre cómo es el mundo que lo rodea. Como lo discutí en una columna anterior, “hackear” no es sinónimo de violar la seguridad de un sistema informático, es una manera de asimilar la tecnología, explorando sus límites y haciendo que las cosas funcionen con un propósito y un significado, en muchos casos usando pensamiento lateral y métodos no ortodoxos pero dentro de un contexto de legalidad.

Látványos képszerkesztés - QQCSKA Látványos képszerkesztés Prezentációkba gyakran illesztünk be képeket, ezek izgalmasabbá tehetők azzal, ha meg is szerkesztjük őket. Mikre gondolok? Dime qué software usas y te diré quién eres. Aaron Koblin, agudo infovisualizador, en ‘Artfully visualizing our humanity’ (charla TED2011), sostiene que “así como la cultura del siglo XIX fue definida por la novela, y la del siglo XX por el cine, la cultura del siglo XXI estará definida por la interfaz”, es decir por el software. Lo que divide a nuestro presente inmaterial de nuestro pasado tangible es el uso masivo del software. Ya no son las ‘chimeneas manchesterianas’ las que aplauden la madurez civilizada, sino los tintineos de las pantallas y las volutas de código dibujadas cual remedo de Matrix las que presiden cada minuto de nuestro quehacer cotidiano, desde los más sublimes hasta los más triviales. La cultura dejó de ser material y se convirtió en etérea. Escribir software ya no es privativo de las tribus informáticas como diagnosticara Pierre Levy a mediados de los años 1980, sino que es una lengua franca que hasta los propios ministerios quieren convertir en el ABC de una alfabetización amplificada.
