[Learnt what?] WordPress Development & CSS3

[Learnt what?] WordPress Development & CSS3

My first networking event in Amstedam, OpenCoffee, left me disappointed because there were a lot of freelancers hunting for customers. In between plenty of self-declared Social Media Experts, few “I make websites with WordPress” caught my attention. For the web-analphabets, WordPress is a free software that runs ~20% of all the Internet websites around. It […]

Learnt What?

Learnt What?

If I have to summarize in a sentence my experience since I started my entrepreneurial life, it’s gonna be: “I’ve learnt a lot of new stuff…” So I decided to list here the skills that I’ve learnt so far, that are helping and will help making my dreams come true, and to dedicate a series […]

Another taxi ride, to Swat Valley

Another taxi ride, to Swat Valley

Greetings from Nantes – beautiful city in Brittany, crossed by the Loira river, French country. I missed a lot travelling, being grounded in Amsterdam for more than 3 weeks recovering from the knee “let me check” surgery I had. Full of joy and excitement, I stepped into another taxi to reach the beloved Schiphol airport, […]

How about Tel Aviv, Israel

How about Tel Aviv, Israel

NOTE: The following post is written in Comic Sans font, because I think I’m funny. I think everyone has some places that trigger curiosity, excitement, interest. Places we want to visit, we fantasize about, without really a reason behind it. One of this places for me was Lisbon, Portugal. After my brother showed me the […]

Two-thousand-twelve-ing, or Twenty-Twelve-ing?

While my friends and I repeated the celebration of the new year last Saturday, countdown included, the masses in New York City are confused about how to call it, this newborn 2012:

Recommended book: How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World (Harry Browne)

In between Christmas, knee surgery and New Year Eve, I didn’t publish the post number 11 of my personal challenge, but on the other side, this time of the year is notoriously a time of self-indulgence and self-overfeeding so I forgive myself urbi et orbi. Anyway, this is post #11. In post-operation recovery I finished reading […]

11 things from 2011

11 things from 2011

As anyone in the blogosphere, I should write a post looking back to 2011 and another one listing the resolutions for 2012. Maybe I should say that “end of the year is always a good moment to stop and analyze” or something like that. But truth to be told – I spent a fair amount of […]

My knee hurts! – and why this is good news

My knee hurts! – and why this is good news

Today if I shift my weight on the left leg, and bend the knee forming a 40-something degrees angle, I can clearly feel a tremble and a slight pain in the frontal-lower part of the knee, where the tibia (or shinbone or shank bone) and fibula (or calf bone) are connected.

My motorcycle diary: Amsterdam-Milano-Amsterdam

May, 2007 – Door to door: Amsterdam-Albiate, and back. Another crazy idea realized, only one week after running a marathon – but that’s another story.

Turning Gold

Turning Gold

With this week round-trip flight to Warsaw, Poland, I’m turning Gold. Gold as the membership status of the frequent flyer program FlyingBlue, status that I’m reaching first time in my life after flight number 30 in an intense year of traveling, and also as you can imagine the only golden thing I could care about.
