Somos+, Javier Cabrera, 1 April 2016 — Yesterday the news came out in
various media: Ultra-secret information has been stolen from the Cuban
Ministry of the Interior. The poor proclamation “Raúl’s Sovereign
Technology” showed itself more focused on censorship of content and
limiting communication than on constructing a true plan of security in
the service of the nation.

It’s not the first theft of confidential information, although the
previous ones were by citizens and not directly by people in the
military, like the surveillance videos in Havana or the telephone
directory of the state phone company . The absurd pledge of
reinventing technology has ended up being, as expected, manipulation.

State Security, formerly considered one of the most efficient bodies,
has succumbed to ridicule. The absence of generational relief to
conserve jobs and benefits, the government secrecy and the absurd plan
of creating technologies that are dedicated only to counteracting the
bad reputation of the “Revolution” in the digital world, such as in this
, have produced fruits, although they aren’t the ones hoped for.

The and technology are not re-inventable. It’s not necessary to
adapt technology to Cuba, but for Cuba to enter with full force into
technology. It’s not a matter of creating professionals to work in
offline businesses, repair computers or traffic in movies, but of
forming true leaders in digital businesses that generate quality
employment at all levels.

While this change in mentality doesn’t happen, it’s more than probable
that this isn’t the only case that scares the analog government of
Havana. I’m very curious to know if Raúl will defend the rights of a
“Cuban Snowden” when he’s presented to public opinion with the same
arguments as the North American analyst.

Mr. , permit me to welcome you, on behalf of all computer
engineers, to the Twenty-First Century.
