Hoy todos somos "Damas de Blanco"


Lamentable una muerte más en Cuba.

Como son también chirriantes las declaraciones de ayer de mi Presidente Zapatero sobre el "derecho a vivir", sin mención inicial alguna a este hecho.

En la casa de la líder del moviemiento de madres y mujeres de presos políticos se ha fijado el lugar de pésame.

Los Contenidos de Usuario en el Wall Street Journal


Comentamos en la sesión del Doctorado de hoy, de la mano de Fernando Pastor, las normas que este gran diario tiene sobre Participación de sus usuarios -sobre todo suscriptores-, en las que no permite el anonimato en ningún caso.


Contempla cuestiones interesantes como la propia naturaleza de la "community" que se crea entre los usuarios: por ejemplo, recomienda leer con escepticismo lo dicho en los foros.

Volver a los orígenes

Autor: Prof. Ignacio Bel Mallén 
En mis frecuentes conversaciones con periodistas de toda clase de medios, escritos y audiovisuales, es frecuente que se trate de los problemas más acuciantes de la profesión en estos momentos de crisis y despiste generalizado. Y es curioso, mejor dicho no es curioso, es absolutamente lógico que una de las conclusiones a las que se llega es que el periodismo, tal como se está entendiendo en estos momentos, está perdiendo su verdadero sentido.
La última derivada a la que se llega es por tanto lógica: hay que volver a los orígenes, que significa en boca de casi todo que es necesario recuperar los principios básicos del quehacer periodístico, abandonados en estos momentos en el baúl de los resultados económicos, de los boletines trimestrales de bolsa, del valor de la acción, etc. Es cierto.
En este Blog iremos analizando los porqués de la situación actual y sus consecuencias, pero en esta primera entregan digámoslo rápidamente: o el mundo informativo (empresarios e informadores) vuelve a los orígenes de las grandes ideas que han sustentado esta profesión o será totalmente acertada la afirmación hecha hoy por el profesor Baker, que los periodistas nos hemos vuelto, eso da igual, unos buenos o malos relaciones publicas.

Amazon vende libros al triple de precio del mercado español

Me asombra ver que en Amazon se vende un libro mío (Comentarios a la Ley de Publicidad, editado por Bosch) por $120.99 cuando su coste en España es de 31,06€ ($42,2) a la venta todavía en librerías. ¿Quién conoce este negocio? ¿Se compran en España y se revenden on line? ¿Qué dice CEDRO, SGAE de esto?

Cada vez veo más claramente que los autores deberíamos comenzar a reclamar de forma colectiva este tipo de cosas. ¿Alguien sabe quién es el mediador?
