FERNANDO ALONSO

The aim of this post, is to analyze how Fernando Alonso uses new technologies and specially social networks and how he introduces himself as a fan of this technological world online.

I have chosen Fernando because I consider him a well integrated person on the net as he says “I think there is never enough technology,” he may appreciate it because “Technology is our motivation and the main goal for engineers and designers”.fernando1

Everywhere are people who do not behave properly and do not use advantages and new tools well. The same that happens in real life takes place on the net. A lot of people try to harass, threaten, embarrass, or target other people on blogs. A lot of them are not brave enough to take responsibility for their own words and for the comments they write down on the net, and they signed as anonymous. If it was not harmful enough, weblogs have being created to encourage cyber-bullying. Right after, I will mention some ideas that Tim O´Reilly thinks might entail a code of conduct.
