Hello everybody! My name is Javier, and right now, I am studying English at the university. As you all may have guessed, this blog is one of the different projects that I have to take to obtain my degree. The topics that I will deal with here are, basically, new technologies (specially Human Language Technologies), Machine Translation, Digital Edition, the Internet, etc.

Although I am not even remotely an expert in this field, I will make an special effort to publish up-to-date and easily understandable articles. I will try to reveal the ins and outs of the IT world, keeping a plain language for those of you who are laymen in these subjects.

At the same time, I will try to post other articles not exclusively related with technology. Maybe some posts about design, photography or the last current affairs. But I know myself and my lack of time, so I cannot promise anything.

If you want to send me some feedback or make any comment in the blog (always in respectful terms, obviously), please, do it. I will be more than glad.

Hoping to see you all again soon,

Javier

    “I will try to post other articles not exclusively related with technology”, so far it seems you are deeply engaged into technology. Hope it helps you as a learning tool.
