  • România Mare de pe Facebook

    Disclaimer: Grupurile prezentate în acest articol nu sunt singurele care transmit pe Facebook mesaje radicale şi violente. De altfel, intenția acestui text este de a strânge tipuri de discurs pe care le crezuserăm dispărute odată cu ieşirea din Parlament a Partidului România Mare, dar care au generat adevărate nevroze colective în țări din această regiune.

  • Profesoara care n-a stat în banca ei

    Dar n-ar prea vrea să renunțe la luptă: „Copiii trebuie educați și trebuie luminați pentru că și ei vor fi părinți. Și trebuie să fie mai buni decât părinții lor, să aibă altă deschidere, și atunci și copiii lor vor avea altă cale spre fericire și spre puterea de a schimba lucrurile.”

  • Bucharest's Tech Meetup Scene

    After 3 years in Bucharest, I’ll be moving out of it to London. However, I cannot do that without giving a big up to all the tech communities that make the capital of Romania a nice place to learn new and interesting stuff. »
