  • McLuhan pointed to the light bulb as an example. A light bulb does not have content in the way that a newspaper has articles or a television has programs, yet it is a medium that has a social effect; that is, a light bulb enables people to create spaces during nighttime that would otherwise be enveloped by darkness. He describes the light bulb as a medium without any content. McLuhan states that "a light bulb creates an environment by its mere presence."[1]


    More controversially, he postulated that content had little effect on society — in other words, it did not matter if television broadcasts children's shows or violent programming, to illustrate one example — the effect of television on society would be identical. He noted that all media have characteristics that engage the viewer in different ways; for instance, a passage in a book could be reread at will, but a movie had to be screened again in its entirety to study any individual part of it.


    The book is the source of the well-known phrase "The medium is the message". It was a leading indicator of the upheaval of local cultures by increasingly globalized values. The book greatly influenced academics, writers, and social theorists.

  • Esta diferencia de percepción Rajoy-Rehn y la exigencia de imparcialidad en la interpretación remite a una de las obras más comentadas en el sector académico de los números (economistas, matemáticos, estadísticos...), The signal and the noise (La señal y el ruido), del matemático Nate Silver, famoso por haber pronosticado en el New York Times desde inicios del 2012 que Obama era el muy seguro ganador de las elecciones de EEUU de noviembre. Su arma: el manejo impecable de la estadística electoral. Su principio: separar ruido y señal, según las leyes de la acústica.

  • Ingredientes de éxito

    Para que el juego funcione y cumpla los objetivos requeridos no pueden faltar cuatro ingredientes, según el experto: “Un buen guión, es decir, una buena historia; una estética impecable; que sea multiplataforma, es decir, transmedia, es decir que el juego abarque distintas plataformas digitales como Youtube, Facebook, que integre minijuegos y otros de carácter físico, diversos lenguajes como el cómic, etc.; y, finalmente, las propias mecánicas del juego o gamificación, que deben combinar la magia con aquellos aspectos que sabemos que van a gustar a los usuarios. Estos son los ingredientes que siempre utilizamos en Cookie Box y que nunca fallan”, afirma.

  • In the book, Rhythmanalysis: Space, Time and Everyday Life, French sociologist Henri Lefebvre suggests ‘Rhythm’ as an alternative tool to understand and analyse everyday urban life beyond visual recognition. He argues that we can examine the true nature of cities from the human body, the basic unit of urban life, to substantial urban structures through rhythms.

  • This new technological solution may even force us to refine our traditional approaches to learning design including the processes, systems and procedures that we are presently following.


    The E-Learning sector has reached a tipping point, where we now have the correct digital infrastructure, the growing mobile and tablet penetration, the best software platforms, and most importantly the right consumer demand, to see innovation within education become an integral part of teaching and corporate training.


    Docebo’s LMS is a web software service that allows you to fast test your Big Data management, and E-Learning is considered the lowest risk area to begin with. Taking into account that E-Learning is “naturally” a multi-device and even “blended” model, means that your users are probably accustomed to changing devices during a learning period or even coming to classrooms during a training program. The most accredited methodology for learning design is based on the “chunk” model, which means that you already own learning content that is ready to be delivered on different platforms. And if that is not enough, Docebo also allows you to easily convert your presentations in HTML5 format using its proprietary authoring tool.

  • Admite que su materia prima, el big data, no es fácil de conseguir. “He tenido suerte. En los inicios, solicitaba datos y no me los daban fácilmente. Tuvieron que pasar muchas conversaciones, demostraciones de capacidad, de interés y reflexión antes de conseguirlos. Y está bien, no todo el mundo debe poder acceder a cierto tipo de información”.

  • Body Language, “the gestures, movements, and mannerisms by which a person or animal communicates with others.” Body language is key to interpersonal relations, as it helps us understand how a person thinks or feels especially when verbal communication is unavailable. In addition to helping us better read people’s emotions, body language also helps us adjust our behavior accordingly without explicit direction from others.
