Big changes ahead

I really don’t know if 2017 has been a great year or what… for sure it has taken in my life some BIG changes:

  1. fatherhood;
  2. more awareness of how precious life is at the same time ephemeral;
  3. the victory of a competition for a permanent job position in the research Institute where I’ve been working as a contractor for the last eleven years of my life;
  4. big envolvment with the local WordPress community, which will take us to the WordCamp Bari 2018 event.

Given all of these I am going to make some changes in my on-line presence. So I am giving a second chance to this Twenty Seventeen WordPress theme to make this website a ‘professional’ standpoint for (the eventual) international audience of mine.


My New Year Wish

And for this year, my wish for each of us is small and very simple.
And it’s this.

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.

So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Neil Gaiman

The luxury of having secrets

Can we please have back some privacy?

Random code & thoughts

It’s 2017. You barely have any secret anymore. But what’s a secret? Let’s see a definition of the term “secret”:

Something that is kept or meant to be kept unknown or unseen by others.

According to the Oxford Dictionary.

If you think of it, you can’t really find a secret which is not known in some way by Google, Facebook or other big corporations.

Let’s make an example.

The Revolution

Since Sept. 10th my life, the life of my family, has been … shaken to its foundaments. We had our first son and we nearly lost him.
Thanks to many people, and one in particular, we have won the fight this time and the result is this:

To all the parents-to-be out there: please do not under-estimate the perils of birth, for the mom and the kid. Consider wisely all the best medical option you have. And good luck

Thanks for sharing Luca!

I want to see the change that most women in tech long for. At its core, the tech industry is idealistic and dreamy, imagining innovations that could change the world. Yet, when it comes to self-reflexivity, tech is just as regressive as many other male-dominated sectors.

A great article by Danah Boyd on how the tech industry can change its culture.
