How to move through the four stages of life

… the truth is that transitions between the life stages are usually triggered by trauma or an extreme negative event in one’s life. A near-death experience. A divorce. A failed friendship or a death of a loved one.

Trauma causes us to step back and re-evaluate our deepest motivations and decisions. It allows us to reflect on whether our strategies to pursue happiness are actually working well or not.

10 (ten) years of WordPress.com

Last week was a busy one, and the notification system of WordPress.com didn’t put enough emphasis on it but … I’ve just passed the mark of 10 years of WordPress.com use last Jan 2nd !!!

WOW! Time flies … seems yesterday I’ve signed in but so many changes have happened in my life and over the platform and WordPress ecosystem of services (JetPack, Gravatar, Akismet, PoolDaddy and so on).

Looking forward the next ten years! Thanks for everything!

With a heavy heart Debian mourns the passing of Ian Murdock, stalwart proponent of Free Open Source Software, Father, Son, and the ‘ian’ in Debian.

Ian started the Debian project in August of 1993, releasing the first versions of Debian later that same year. Debian would go on to become the world’s Universal Operating System, running on everything from embedded devices to the space station.

His family has asked for privacy during this difficult time and we very much wish to respect that. Within our Debian and the larger Linux community condolences may be sent to in-memoriam-ian@debian.org where they will be kept and archived.
