Humans are unpredictable mushy bags of irrationality and emotion

Here’s an infographic I found regarding the “best practices” to adopt when using LinkedIn. Made by Neal Schaffer.
At work we’re in the middle of the development of a new Tomcat powered bioinformatics application, and have reached the stage were you have to show it to some peers but not make it publicly available. I do have an ubuntu 12.04 LTS server, so I took the most out of this Randeep’s post:
Here it is how to do it in few steps:
- Add user, password and role in conf/tomcat-users.xml
- In the webapps/examples/WEB-INF/web.xml specify role, method and urls.
- Restart Tomcat and check the result
Last month the “magazine” Backchannel on Medium.com started a brand new experiment. It gathered under a common hashtag every Medium post / reviews of Apple Watch owners interested in participating to the initiative. The final goal was to summarize the best and insightful opinions into a last, final, ultimate post on the new-born in the Apple family of devices.
Words have been written. The experiment is done. The meta-review is ready:
Personally I didn’t like it. I found it fragmented, without a clear vision of how the review should unfold. A bit too fragmented. Without a clear judgement coming out of it. I better enjoyed reading in their entirety (most of) the single review published each author.
Anyway if you’re interested in the topic reading it is worth your time. Let me know in the comments if you enjoyed it or not!
Deep Dreamer → is the easiest way to process images and videos with Google’s amazing Deepdream engine.
I first heard of it thanks to my pal Filippo Corti on his Bicycle Mind blog. He first reported of Google’s experiment and research in the image recognition field, then reported this brand net app for OS X platform from the talented team of Realmac Software (currently in Beta status).
What is Google deepdream?
The brain behind Deep Dreamer was developed at Google as a tool to try and understand how neural networks work. Google open sourced the code, allowing anyone with the know-how to create these images. However, setting up the code on a server is not a trivial task. We’ve become fascinated with how deepdream processes our photos, and wanted to make it easy for anyone to explore.
The amazing guys at Realmac Software have also made a demo video of their app:
Mobile 3G or LTE data plan are expensive. Here in Italy and in many places of the world, even rich countries … like Switzerland, homeland of today’s app in review.
Here, three developers have decided to put a stop on expensive bills of their cellphone operators and write an app for OS X 10.10 (and later) that will make the user choose what applications are essentials when connected over an Hotspot mode to their smartphone and what not. Most of the time, when on the run we want to quickly check our email or a website and we don’t need a full Google Drive or Dropbox sync.
TRIPMODE is a little great app, that comes at a cheap price ( ~ 8S) and has a nice free mode behaviour that I like to recommend to you. This summer vacations could be the right time to benefit from this software. Let me know in the comments if you’re finding it useful …
