Manifiesto por una Red Neutral Net Neutrality

Los ciudadanos y las empresas usuarias de Internet adheridas a este texto manifestamos:




1. Que Internet es una Red Neutral por diseño, desde su creación hasta su actual implementación, en la que la información fluye de manera libre, sin discriminación alguna en función de origen, destino, protocolo o contenido.



2. Que las empresas, emprendedores y usuarios de Internet han podido crear servicios y productos en esa Red Neutral sin necesidad de autorizaciones ni acuerdos previos, dando lugar a una barrera de entrada prácticamente inexistente que ha permitido la explosión creativa, de innovación y de servicios que define el estado de la red actual.



3. Que todos los usuarios, emprendedores y empresas de Internet han podido definir y ofrecer sus servicios en condiciones de igualdad llevando el concepto de la libre competencia hasta extremos nunca antes conocidos.



4. Que Internet es el vehículo de libre expresión, libre información y desarrollo social más importante con el que cuentan ciudadanos y empresas. Su naturaleza no debe ser puesta en riesgo bajo ningún concepto.



5. Que para posibilitar esa Red Neutral las operadoras deben transportar paquetes de datos de manera neutral sin erigirse en “aduaneros” del tráfico y sin favorecer o perjudicar a unos contenidos por encima de otros.



6. Que la gestión del tráfico en situaciones puntuales y excepcionales de saturación de las redes debe acometerse de forma transparente, de acuerdo a criterios homogéneos de interés público y no discriminatorios ni comerciales.



7. Que dicha restricción excepcional del tráfico por parte de las operadoras no puede convertirse en una alternativa sostenida a la inversión en redes



8. Que dicha Red Neutral se ve amenazada por operadoras interesadas en llegar a acuerdos comerciales por los que se privilegie o degrade el contenido según su relación comercial con la operadora.



9. Que algunos operadores del mercado quieren “redefinir” la Red Neutral para manejarla de acuerdo con sus intereses, y esa pretensión debe ser evitada; la definición de las reglas fundamentales del funcionamiento de Internet debe basarse en el interés de quienes la usan, no de quienes la proveen



10. Que la respuesta ante esta amenaza para la red no puede ser la inacción: no hacer nada equivale a permitir que intereses privados puedan de facto llevar a cabo prácticas que afectan a las libertades fundamentales de los ciudadanos y la capacidad de las empresas para competir en igualdad de condiciones.



11. Que es preciso y urgente instar al Gobierno a proteger de manera clara e inequívoca la Red Neutral, con el fin de proteger el valor de Internet de cara al desarrollo de una economía más productiva, moderna, eficiente y libre de injerencias e intromisiones indebidas. Para ello es preciso que cualquier moción que se apruebe vincule de manera indisoluble la definición de Red Neutral en el contenido de la futura ley que se promueve, y no condicione su aplicación a cuestiones que poco tienen que ver con ésta.



La Red Neutral es un concepto claro y definido en el ámbito académico, donde no suscita debate: los ciudadanos y las empresas tienen derecho a que el tráfico de datos recibido o generado no sea manipulado, tergiversado, impedido, desviado, priorizado o retrasado en función del tipo de contenido, del protocolo o aplicación utilizado, del origen o destino de la comunicación ni de cualquier otra consideración ajena a la de su propia voluntad. Ese tráfico se tratará como una comunicación privada y exclusivamente bajo mandato judicial podrá ser espiado, trazado, archivado o analizado en su contenido, como correspondencia privada que es en realidad.



Europa, y España en particular, se encuentran en medio de una crisis económica tan importante que obligará al cambio radical de su modelo productivo, y a un mejor aprovechamiento de la creatividad de sus ciudadanos. La Red Neutral es crucial a la hora de preservar un ecosistema que favorezca la competencia e innovación para la creación de los innumerables productos y servicios que quedan por inventar y descubrir. La capacidad de trabajar en red, de manera colaborativa, y en mercados conectados, afectará a todos los sectores y todas las empresas de nuestro país, lo que convierte a Internet en un factor clave actual y futuro en nuestro desarrollo económico y social, determinando en gran medida el nivel de competitividad del país. De ahí nuestra profunda preocupación por la preservación de la Red Neutral. Por eso instamos con urgencia al Gobierno español a ser proactivo en el contexto europeo y a legislar de manera clara e inequívoca en ese sentido.



(Si te sientes cómodo y representado por este texto, dale toda la difusión que puedas y quieras: reprodúcelo, enlázalo, tradúcelo, compártelo, vótalo… todas esas cosas que puedes hacer con total tranquilidad y libertad gracias, precisamente, al hecho de que tenemos todavía una red neutral. Hagamos posible el seguir teniéndola)

Canon EOS 60D

Introduction

The Canon EOS 60D represents the middle of Canon’s SLR lineup, but it is a top-notch camera in terms of performance, handling and flexibility. We found that it had excellent color accuracy and took sharp images, although the 18-135mm kit lens that Canon sells with it has some issues.

THE FINANCIAL PHILOSOPHER: Be Thankful: Contentment is True Wealth

Fall.mountain.stream

"The wise man knows that it is better to sit on the banks of a remote mountain stream than to be emperor of the whole world." ~ Zhuangzi

As you give thanks, be mindful that you are practicing contentment, which in turn is the means to natural wealth.  Also, do your best to be thankful every day, not just one day per year. 

The first Thanksgiving in America was a feast among Pilgrims and Native Americans to celebrate what they had; there was no purpose or benefit in dwelling upon what they had not.  In that spirit, I will share with you quotes on contentment:

Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you. ~ Lau Tzu

Joy is not in things; it is in us. ~ Richard Wagner

What a wonderful life I’ve had! I only wish I’d realized it sooner. ~ Colette

Happiness is not a state to arrive at, but a manner of traveling. ~ Margaret Lee Runbeck

Every time I talk to a savant I feel quite sure that happiness is no longer a possibility. Yet when I talk with my gardener, I’m convinced of the opposite. ~ Bertrand Russell

Anyone who thinks money will make you happy doesn’t have money. Happiness is more difficult to obtain than money. ~ David Geffen

It is the mind that maketh good or ill, that maketh wretch or happy, rich or poor. ~ Michel de Montaigne

The world is so constructed, that if you wish to enjoy its pleasures, you also must endure its pains. ~ Swami Brahmananda

Without accepting the fact that everything changes, we cannot find perfect composure. But unfortunately, although it is true, it is difficult for us to accept it. Because we cannot accept the truth of transience, we suffer. ~ D.T. Suzuki

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. ~ Reinhold Niebuhr 

Health is the greatest possession. Contentment is the greatest treasure. Confidence is the greatest friend. Non-being is the greatest joy. ~ Lao Tzu

Slow down and the thing you are chasing will come around and catch you. ~ Leaf in hand

Zen saying

People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

My opinion is that you never find happiness until you stop looking for it. ~ Zhuangzi

Happiness is your nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside. ~ Ramana Maharishi

All men's miseries derive from not being able to sit in a quiet room alone. ~ Blaise Pascal

A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety. ~ Aesop

There are three words that convey the secret of the art of living, the secret of all success and happiness: One With Life. Being one with life is being one with Now. You then realize that you don’t live your life, but life lives you. Life is the dancer, and you are the dance. ~ Eckhart Tolle

Be thankful. Be content. Be rich.

100 Twitter Feeds That Teach You History | Associate Degree - Facts and Information

100 Twitter Feeds That Teach You History

August 19th, 2009

By Rose Jensen

With all the buzz about Twitter being the latest source for breaking news, it may be easy to overlook the fact that Twitter is also a good place to look for information about the past. Whether you are studying history and want a little additional knowledge to support what you are learning in class or are just a history buff, then you will want to check out these Twitter feeds that offer all sorts of historical facts ranging from American history to European history to history of specific places or building to history of families to history in the making.

With the release of Final Cut Pro 7, Apple increased the number of ProRes versions from two to five:

  • ProRes 422 Proxy
  • ProRes 422 LT
  • ProRes 422
  • ProRes 422 HQ
  • ProRes 4444

So, that begs the question: which version should you use for your project.

First, four of the five flavors of ProRes are identical in every respect, except one. They all support:

  • Intra-frame encoding, meaning each frame is individually compressed as a stand-alone picture, unlike GOP-based encoding like XDCAM EX or HDV.
  • Variable bit-rate data encoding, creating smaller files than constant bit rate encoding.
  • 10-bit color depth, for very high color fidelity
  • 4:2:2 chroma sub-sampling, the maximum allowed for video formats
  • Fast render times, much faster than GOP-compressed video like XDCAM EX or HDV
  • Faster editing within Final Cut Pro
  • Matching the frame rate, frame size, and pixel aspect ratio of the source video
  • Optimized for multiple processor support

Unlike H.264, ProRes encoding and decoding are optimized for multiple processors.

ProRes 4444, the fifth version, builds on the first four ProRes versions, then adds support for the following:

  • RGB or YCbCr color space
  • Up to 12-bit color support
  • Inclusion of the transparency (alpha channel) information in a clip

If you need a clip to retain transparency information, which is called the "Alpha channel," you only have one choice: ProRes 4444. None of the other ProRes versions support clip transparency.

Well, since it's clear that ProRes 4444 is the absolute "best" in terms of quality, it seems like we should all just select ProRes 4444 and be done with it.

The problem with this approach is that your file sizes can be quite large, not as large as fully uncompressed HD, but still pretty darn big. And, unless you have a specific need for this format, you probably won't be able to see the difference between ProRes 4444 and other ProRes versions. Also, using ProRes 4444 in your project probably means you'd need to render every shot.

Think of ProRes 4444 as the replacement for the Animation codec. We use the Animation codec when we want to move files between one application and another; for example, between After Effects and Final Cut. Then, once it's in Final Cut, you render it into the final version you need for your project.

As a transfer format, ProRes 4444 is great. As a video editing format, it's way past overkill. Most of the time, you will be fully happy with one of the four other versions. And your file sizes will be much smaller.

The four other versions of ProRes differ in only one area: data rate. Changing the data rate directly affects file size and image quality. The slower the data rate, the smaller the resulting file and, potentially, the lower the image quality.

For example, here's a table that showcases the difference. This is just a guide, different formats create different file sizes, but the general proportions will be the same.

However, the situation isn't as grim as you might think. Here are some suggestions you can reflect on as you are trying to decide what codec to use.

RECOMMENDATIONS

If you are shooting GOP-compressed media - HDV, XDCAM HD, XDCAM EX, AVCHD, AVCCAM - your editing and render times will greatly benefit from converting your footage from the source format into some version of ProRes.

At a minimum, when editing one of these formats, select the Timeline and go to Sequence > Settings > Render Control and change the codec from Same as Source to Apple ProRes 422. My tests have shown that there is about a 40% speed improvement in rendering when you switch to ProRes.

ProRes 422 HQ: This is the highest-quality video format, but unless you are shooting very carefully-lit, high-end video, such as RED, HDCAM, or HDCAM SR, the quality of your source image doesn't equal the format. Use this version only for high-end work.

ProRes 422: This is the format I recommend for anyone shooting DSLR, HDV, AVCHD, XDCAM EX, XDCAM HD, AVCAM, or P2. Great image quality, with file sizes 30-35% smaller than ProRes 422 HQ. Since the DSLR images start as H.264, which is already quite compressed, ProRes 422 most closely matches the original image quality.

ProRes 422 LT: This is the format to use if you have tons of footage, need to edit using smaller (i.e. less storage space) hard drives, or are going to go thru an off-line to on-line process.

ProRes 422 Proxy: This format should only be used when file size is more important than image quality. Training files, library archive files, or other reference media are a good choice for this format.

NOTE: If you are on an older, non-Intel system, ProRes may not be a good choice for you. The math involved is very CPU-intensive and older systems may not be able to encode or play it fast enough.

ProRes is an excellent video codec and one that has achieved great popularity in the industry. However, that doesn't mean you always need to select the absolute highest quality -- many times our images weren't that good to start with.

By spending a few seconds thinking about which ProRes version best matches our video format, we can save a ton of time and storage space down the road.
