    “do Cuban students (and Cuban general population) have the right to know the other side of the coin?” Absolutely, they have the right to know some other perspectives about reality. Actually, internet is a source to expand and spread our ideas, to meet someone else’s ideas, and to interact with the world in real time.
    We got to something.

  2. Ivan, thanks for your comment! You are right, the money they are spending in creating their own programs and interfaces may be expended in, for example, improving their internet speed. Again, this is a very complicated topic but I’m glad we can at least discuss about it. If you want to check out Yoani Sanchez’s blog go to

    María Alejandra: Certainly the gap between Cuba and the rest of the world in the Internet will continue to expand. I agree with Mrs. Sanchez’s words when she says “as if we’re abandoned and motionless by the side of the expressway, with ever faster and speeding kilobytes unattainable by us”. I think all these resources spent on controlling some pages may be used for people’s needs.
