Internet is amazing. I learned about the deployment of the first OLPC batch here in Uruguay through Techmeme->Ivan Krstić’s blog. And I live here!

Ivan’s article is inspirational and exciting. I absolutely believe in the OLPC program, and will do what it is at my reach to support it. There are lots of good people here […]

Pandora: a nice company fatally wounded by nonsense politics

Pandora has been getting a lot of press this past weeks over its new services. They have signed deals with USA mobile providers Sprint and Sonos, and have revamped their Web Site.
All that development is quite impressive, but to me it still feels like the company is doomed. And it all has to do -obviously- […]

I checked today and, effectively, Pandora’s technical staff blocked the site for most countries. This is how the site looks like in Uruguay (click on the image to view in full size):

What to do now
There are articles on how to access Pandora from outside the US already. Basically, it tells you to use a […]

Pandora, a great music streaming service, is to be discontinued for every country, save USA an UK.
I just got this letter from Pandora:

Dear Pandora listener,
Today we have some extremely disappointing news to share with you. Due to international licensing constraints, we are deeply, deeply sorry to say that we must begin proactively preventing […]

George W. Bush visits Uruguay: McDonald’s takes the rage

Unfortunately for the people that are lovin’ it, McDonald’s is the top icon in Uruguay. So, besides saying little, making almost the only news on local mainstream media, Bush’s visit to this little country got a massive protest; with McDonald’s being the main victim: three of its stores were vandalized.
