The Internet now even knows what breed of dog you are | Digital Trends Spanish

It was another cyberspace. On the Internet, no one knows that you are a dog, the cartoon that Peter Steiner published on July 5, 1993 in the magazine The New Yorker, refers to a characteristic that has been eliminated by sophisticated tracking and identification techniques with which, even without knowing something basic like our name, they are capable of creating a sophisticated socioeconomic profile for marketing purposes. Online marketers sum it up in a simple and suggestive phrase: not even your mother knows as much about you as Google. The cartoon has been reproduced ad nausea, and in recent years, adapted to the cultural mass dissemination vehicle par excellence: the meme. Two dogs sitting in front of a computer, one of them with a paw on the keyboard as if he were about to ente...

Half a century of the world’s oldest digital library | Digital Trends Spanish

Thanks to Internet we have access to an almost infinite amount of cultural content. We can watch movies, documentaries and series, read books and magazines, and listen to music like never before in history. We owe this to the pioneers who saw the web as an interesting vehicle for spreading culture, even when the internet was in its infancy. An important milestone in this matter was marked by the writer and philanthropist Michael Hart, who on July 4, 1971 decided to launch the Gutenberg Project. This initiative sought to offer a free book collection through the internet with the aim of contributing to the public literacy process. At the time, Hart was a student at the University of Illinois working on one of the most important computers in the Materials Research Laboratory, which later ...

The code that Tim Berners-Lee auctioned has a bug | Digital Trends Spanish

British engineer Tim Berners-Lee is considered the creator of the web as we know it. For this reason, he made headlines when he decided to sell an NFT with the source code of the World Wide Web.

It is not yet known who paid this amount, what is known is that the amount will benefit different organizations that Berners-Lee supports.

However, Mikko Hypponen, a researcher at computer security company F-Secure, pointed out that the auctioned code could contain an error. Hold ...

GMC Offers Free Internet To Work Anywhere | Digital Trends Spanish

If the last year has taught us anything, it is that we can work from anywhere. We don't need an office, just an internet connection. Under this concept, GMC launched the Work from Anywhere campaign, with which it intends to make its clients use the internet in their vehicles for free to leave their home-office. The idea for the campaign arose from the fact that this June 24, National Work from Home Day is celebrated in the United States.

These groups have organized three days of protests worldwide, which would be coordinated by volunteers from all over the planet. Getty Images.The mobilizations will take place from June 19 to 21.
