Seven days later, here I am againg…
Today’s suggestions are – in my opinion – little pearls. The kind of reading that takes time to be assimilated, and then some other time to grow inside you and take you to some new ideas or approach… Enjoy them!
- Dieter Rams and the Relevance of Functionalism — who doesn’t love his approach to design and philosophy of stuff we use everyday? Here you can learn a thing or two about him and his vision…
- Some thoughts on Facebook Instant Articles – my friends at Sketchin wrote an essay on the newest offer to publishers by THE social network, and the positive implications it can have for editors and readers. If just one could trust about FB and his ‘black hole’ approach to everything that’s published on their servers…
- Falling In Love With A Hard Drive … or, How To Name Your Computer and Other Machines — Yes, I am a geek. Always use different naming schemes for the computer networks I manage. Have a laugh reading this [BTW, the NamingSchemes.com cited in the post is part of my bookmark collections since last year!];
- My icon design workflow at Bjango
- In defence of WordPress — today’s trend seems to blame this CMS, alongside any other project wrote in PHP. But no one – except it’s growing user base – seems to notice or appreciate their daily efforts.
I think to power more of the web, WordPress needs to go from a blogging tool that can make websites, to a website tool that can make blogs. It’s a fundamental shift, but I believe that’s where WordPress is headed.

WordPress.com has published a bunch of new and interesting themes to their free offer. I choose Wilson to shake things up here… and see if putting in evidence (again) the tags, your’s most recent comments and the interesting things I bookmark on Pinboard in the site’s sidebar I can spark something new. Take this as a little experiment, and as an opportunity to tell me what’s your take on sidebar and content’s visibility and reachability over a blog like mine, with nearly 10 years of content!
Wow! What a ride…
As the year runts to its end, the WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 45,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 17 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
