      Internet es una herramienta maravillosa, pero sin un bagaje previo de conocimiento y sentir crítico nos desarma y abruma, y eso es una tarea que deben hacer los humanos, con libros, con ideas, con aplicaciones y con tizas, pero con pausa, con paciencia y con esmero.
      The Internet is a wonderful tool, but without prior knowledge and critical thinking it disarms and overwhelms us, and that is a job for by humans, with books, with ideas, with applications and with chalk, but with pause, with patience and with care.
