Minister of Works calls to establish computer codes of practice in Trinidad and Tobago

Such idiocy.

But it goes beyond. What exactly is this "computer code of practice" about the use of computers? Where? My personal computer, that I bought and paid for? The Govt is to tell me what to do with it? That is censorship. In a free country, Dr. Rambachan would use his computer the way he wants to, and we will all use ours they way we want to.

<< Rambachan said codes of practice “might have to be developed for the use of computers and technology that is not inimical to progress, but at the same time it does not destroy the value systems in society”. Rambachan said the nation had to “behave like a developed country” so that people will not be “short changing” themselves. >>
Shortchanging themselves? By using technology how they wish to? The shortchanging  would be if they allowed the Government to implement central control over personal  technology use. Developed countries - do we want to be like Russia, which recently implemented restrictive laws against bloggers?  This curtailment of individual rights is happening more and more, and it's not a path we should be going down.

Good morning how are you?

My name is Emilio, I am a Spanish boy and I live in a town near to Madrid. I am a very interested person in knowing things so different as the culture, the way of life of the inhabitants of our planet, the fauna, the flora, and the landscapes of all the countries of the world etc. in summary, I am a person that enjoys traveling, learning and respecting people's diversity from all over the world.

I would love to travel and meet in person all the aspects above mentioned, but unfortunately as this is very expensive and my purchasing power is quite small, so I devised a way to travel with the imagination in every corner of our planet. A few years ago I started a collection of used stamps because trough them, you can see pictures about fauna, flora, monuments, landscapes etc. from all the countries. As every day is more and more difficult to get stamps, some years ago I started a new collection in order to get traditional letters addressed to me in which my goal was to get at least 1 letter from each country in the world. This modest goal is feasible to reach in the most part of countries, but unfortunately it’s impossible to achieve in other various territories for several reasons, either because they are countries at war, either because they are countries with extreme poverty or because for whatever reason the postal system is not functioning properly.

For all this I would ask you one small favor:
Would you be so kind as to send me a letter by traditional mail from Trinidad and Tobago? I understand perfectly that you think that your blog is not the appropriate place to ask this, and even, is very probably that you ignore my letter, but I would call your attention to the difficulty involved in getting a letter from that country, and also I don’t know anyone neither where to write in Trinidad and Tobago in order to increase my collection. a letter for me is like a little souvenir, like if I have had visited that territory with my imagination and at same time, the arrival of the letters from a country is a sign of peace and normality and an original way to promote a country in the world. My postal address is the following one:

Emilio Fernandez Esteban
Avenida Juan de la Cierva, 44
28902 Getafe (Madrid)

If you wish, you can visit my blog where you can see the pictures of all the letters that I have received from whole World.

Finally I would like to thank the attention given to this letter, and whether you can help me or not, I send my best wishes for peace, health and happiness for you, your family and all your dear beings.

Yours Sincerely

Emilio Fernandez
