August 31 Why use Twitter when there's Tumblr?
Facebook is sufficiently satisfied but it was on Twitter that I have my doubts. I understand that he was born along the lines of an SMS text message but if the digital mobile phone technology has reason to limit the number of typed characters, just do not understand why bring this "defect" also in digital version. Furthermore, the inability to insert pictures in the "twit" if not supporting external services, makes it even more stressful.
With Twitter I have all the advantages of Twitter, especially the speed and simplicity of sending my thoughts, my news, a photo of me in all my contacts, without the flaws of Twitter.
With Twitter I can add a link to something interesting, add a photo, a quote or even a video or audio file in a simple and immediate.
I have no limits on length of text, pictures are large enough and there are lots of issues with which to customize their news page, and if one wants, the page is fully configurable by editing the HTML template.
Other significant features are those having a domain mionome.tumblr.com or even use your domain to point to the page of Tumblr.
I, for example, I chose the link tumblr.ebruni.it.
In short, a system that, if you do not already have one staff, allowing two minutes to create your own blog easy to manage and update especially for someone like me, knows how hard to keep updated on their blogs.
Obviously a tool "simple" upgrade of its "social profile" could not be said that without an appropriate instrument "mobile" for the update and insert new news. In fact Thumblr is not far behind with an iPhone application that allows almost immediate way to do almost everything that is done from the web classic.
Moreover, like any self-respecting social tools, are guaranteed connections with other social networking platform so that, for example, everything that I send to Tumblr is immediately visible even on my Twitter account and my Facebook friends.
Now, my neighbor "effort" would be to have, automatically, published here on my blog, all news and photos published by Tumblr, so as to have everything in one pot.
At this point I ask: "but what are you waiting to make you an account on Tumblr?".
Finally discovered the reason why, in Italy, healthcare is in shambles. Guilt and ADSL. And so that's a fearless general manager decides to increase the production quality of their company by closing the valves to their employees, penalizing all sites other than their being strictly work-related.
A wanting to go back for a moment serious, I do not think that this is the main cause of the production level of the ASL, since, if one has no desire to work is that if you take away the INTERNET back to being productive. There is always the Gazzetta dello Sport, iPod, or, in rarer cases, a good book.
But, with this post, I did not really give a positive or negative action of the Director of ASL as you analyze with some small blunders of this document.
We start from the object: "black sites ADSL. I would have understood "websites", I would have understood "websites", but "ADSL sites" no. Dear Editor, suffice to say "black sites" also because I seem to remember that you will, in ASL, you have a CDN and not un'ADSL.
We go into the first paragraph. The reason for the blackout seems to be that all employees, physicians and capisale are always connected to the booking site travel, holidays (and Oh well ... it's the term), sports (the alternative is much, and it's always nice newspaper pink), gourmet recipes (????) etc, etc.. Well, do not know about you, but I think 95% of the traffic that caused the blocking of Internet access lies in that "etc.etc." It is the good old ... PORN !!!!!! And then, just as serious: where is the main clause? Forgotten in the drawer?
Second paragraph. It starts with a terrible doubt. Some ISPs complained with the ASL for the fact that their dipenendenti make many requests to their sites from potholes. This is, in fact, at first at once, meaning that I give to the phrase "As these sites are occupied for a long time ..". Easier reading, the meaning is rather clear, but could be expressed much better. And then, but throughout the paragraph, where the main clause? Forgot this too in the same drawer?
Fourth paragraph: "I can not say that at this point ..." and then do not communicate!!
At the conclusion of all this I would say that with the money saved from that "laudable" initiative, propose to pay for two courses to dear Director General, one to improve his knowledge of the Internet world, and one to learn how to better utilize dear Italian.
August 19 I write little?
Will be a period of quiet and leave but I have very little desire to write. Even those who follow me on Twitter and Facebook you will be aware of my absence.
The last post where I analyze the book by Kathy Reichs, Bones Duecentosei, actually was written August 4 and was awaiting review. Tired, I've published almost as it is.
In reality of things to say happened in this holiday period there would be too, but I'm too busy to hang around and play America's Army 3 and then at least until the first of Settembre you'll have to put a little 'to diet by your captain.
But I promise you that in September, more rested than ever, I'll be ready to give you a hard time.
Currently it takes a few sporadic posts. Sorry.
August 18 Duecentosei bones - Kathy Reichs
E 'useless. Despite the medical thriller genre is one of my favorite genres, all the writings of
Kathy Reichs did not take me for nothing.
Pardon the euphemism but Reichs writes with her cunt instead of the brain.
But let's order. Kathy Reichs is one of two authors who normally reads (the other is Clive Cussler) he does in real life, a job similar to the one who then do the literary alter ego.
Like his alter ego Tempe Brennan, also an anthropologist Kathy Reichs is forensic. So why will work with the dead, and in particular with the skeletons, but Kathy Reichs is cold as an icicle.
What emotion you feel when you read his books. Nothing. Zero. Nisba. As an example, the beginning of the fatal journey in which our describing his alter ego that walks on a field where it has just been a plane crash. Death, pain, fire, flames, the description should bring goose bumps to every reader the Reichs and instead turns it into a cold description of the place. It seems like in those stories of people who undergo surgery, tell of being released from his body and had watched the scene of its operation with a cool detachment. Here, reading a book of Reichs is not.
Adding insult to injury? There are whole pages of descriptions and explanations about things that will not have the slightest bearing on the story. For example, in Duecentosei bones, there is a dinner with the relatives of the former husband of Tempe. And so, two pages to tell the story of the exodus of her former husband's family from Poland to the United States.
Continue? The constant presence of ambivalence between Francophone and Anglophone culture that pervades the writings of Reichs. I understand that the environment, Quebec, lends itself to this context but the rest of the world, cares nothing for questioning all'indiziato ask yourself if you prefer to do it in French or English, do not care nothing about the fact that the Temple I can not understand the French-speaking region is a particular character from his speech, did not give a damn that Anglophones imprechino indicating male body parts while speaking using words related to the church.
In short, do not like me ... if you can, avoid it.
August 04 YAPC:: Europe 2010 in Pisa
E 'with great pride that I announce that YAPC:: Europe Foundation (YEP) has decided to assign to the role of organizer of Pisa Yet Another Perl Conference YAPC:: Europe 2010, the Continental Conference of Programming Perl, when the annual exchange of ideas and information among Perl programmers in Europe.
The pride comes from the fact that the allocation of the venue by YEP comes from a deep selection of various constraints and requirements that the location must have to satisfy the amount of people coming usually at these events. Just to give an idea, for 2010 were nominated two other major European cities, but in the end made her want to Pisa for the excellent organization dell'IPW2008 for both the credentials presented during the selection of host city event of 2010.
Just to give an idea of the work here is the document that summarizes the proposal, now winner of Pisa for the YAPC:: Europe 2010. If you notice, in the document, is also your captain but I would immediately point out that the victory of Pisa to host this event is mainly due to the strong commitment of the Pisan and Mongers of Pisa.pm. But the undersigned promises to be an active part when it comes to roll up their sleeves for the effective organization of the event.
To read his biography seems a really interesting guy. First, all the instrumental part of "Do not Worry, Be Happy" is entirely made of sounds produced by McFerrin himself and then mixed in during production. So much so that McFerrin is the creator of music beatboxing.
Truly eclectic character, for example, not content with his success as a singer and jazz musician, decided to study conducting, taking lessons with Bernstein, Ozawa and Meier and thus directs the Symphonic Orchestra of San Francisco, the New York Philharmonic, and in 2007, he performed at La Scala in Milan directing the Filarmonica della Scala.
There 's but now wonder why my interest in him and that has relevance to the neural networks that, for those who do not know, are mathematical models that, following the examples of the interconnections of brain neurons, are trying to approach the solution problems in science through amendment of the connections between mathematical structures. Think for example how, after several years of learning, we all managed to climb the stairs without a problem and think about how this thing is still very difficult to "teach" to a robot.
Well, in his appearance at the World Science Festival 2009, Bobby McFerrin shows how easy programming for human brains, those of the poor spectators, while it is so difficult to program a robot to climb stairs.
If at the end you do not understand what's spectacular about that, the article by Matthew Flora, can give you a hand to understand the beauty of what happens in the video above.
Spinning Controguerra a great evening at the first event
the 01 August at the square of Commerce.
Two-hour event, more than 60 participants, nine instructors on stage to give life to one of the most important events in the XXIV ° gastronomic feast of local produce.
But let's order and start from the beginning. We meet everyone, I, Annalisa, Nicholas and Gaspar in the square and you start to look around. You know things like: "Who am I, where I go, why am I here?". Given the heat, we were more or less well developed.
Seriously, you control the stage, hot water in the showers and the audio system. And here's the first little problem. The buildings of the town is not enough to shoot the music event.
Fortunately, in ten minutes we are from rags to riches. A brief conversation with the service group that should play on stage after our event and you have to use their sound system from enne thousand watts.
Unfortunately, two things go hopelessly wrong. An inevitable. A slight injury to Beppe better, forces him to defection. Okay, these things happen.
The second one is unforgivable. The percussionist Conrad, who had so praised his performance in Ortona, has forgotten us, and when reached by telephone, reminded him of the commitment given is too late and the omelet is done. Anathema upon him and investments required to "Spinning In Controguerra 2010" on pain of chemical castration .
Fortunately, advances at once that these will be the only minor problems that occur during the event which then smoothly as oil.
Send them to bike in record time under the scorching sun, we prepare the gadgets and install the stricioni on stage. Connecting to the mixer
and we are ready to go. Two hours of intense and hard work under the eyes of controguerresi and participants at the festival.
Everything flows away quickly among sweaty faces, effort, passion and fun and, in the end is that the time for a quick shower in the municipal gymnasium of Controguerra and for a healthy meal in a festival rounds of sandwiches with sausage and penne erotic . At this point, really fired come the greetings and thanks for all the participants at the event and the members of 'ASD IN & OUT Abruzzo Team who made this event possible and a farewell to "Spinning Controguerra in 2010."
You can get an idea of the square of Controguerra bikers hung with photos of the event through these on my Flickr profile or via the 'album created by Silvia. Should you have other news photos online event, to add it here immediately.
