CadenasEsta semana empiezo con el único enlace de la semana anterior, ya que no me pareció procedente escribir una entrada solo para un enlace.

Y para compensar la casi inexistente actividad de la semana pasada, esta ha sido bastante prolífica.

Como novedad esta semana, a medida que se vayan publicando estos enlaces en Linkedin, se irán “disparando” también al bot de Telegram y a la página de Anotado en Facebook. No sé si esto hará que deje de publicar estas entradas resumen. Por el momento sigo con ellas.
