Cuba has been in the news since President Obama announced changes in our Cuba policy and agreed to the prisoner exchange that freed Alan Gross, who was serving a 15 year sentence for bringing tech equipment into Cuba.
I've not posted anything on this blog for several weeks because I have been busy with recent events on another blog I maintain on the Internet in Cuba. The following are my recent posts concerning Alan Gross and the future of the Internet in Cuba. They are in chronological order, beginning with a November 11 post asking whether Gross was about to be freed:
- Where there is smoke, there is fire -- will Alan Gross be released soon?
- An Alan Gross suggestion from an amateur
- Officials say Cuba is not afraid of new technology -- they just lack the funds
- Granma says IT is now a priority -- is this true change?
- The Cuban Internet in context
- Welcome home Alan Gross!
- Is the Internet a priority for Cuba? The ball is in their court.
- A joke and some cool images on US-Cuba relations
- Who owns ETECSA and who runs the show?
- Can there be a uniquely Cuban Internet?
- Interviews of ETECSA officials
- Cuban government support of the weekly "packages"
