just found this cute poster:
This Link will lead you to this social-networking-map in full size,
which is a lovely Data Visualization which i love,
you can see in this post here about Management Data Visualization all kind of samples of Management related Data Visualization images.
The issue I want to raise here besides my appreciation for the designing of this concept,
Is the fact I didn’t find ICQ in there.
Now I have a special place in my heart for ICQ,
and since they still have many millions of users, I think they should have ben represented in this image,
But all I could find there are some “receding glaciers of AOL” and “AIM Tundra”.
I think ICQ was the Origin of the internet socializing idea, and some kind of a relic at least should be in it,
although ICQ is still alive and kicking, and in the process of changing ownership – ICQ Sold to the Russians.
So, My question for the day is:
Can you Find ICQ in the picture, Boys and Girls?
Do you ever get this feeling when you see something and you can’t let go of it?
xkcd cartoons got me at least twice that i can think of,
I’m hearing a lot these days about uptime, and this cartoon just hits the spot:
and another one that i went around with for months, couldn’t get it out of my head:
Yup, I know this blog is about Linux and WordPress and other technical stuff,
but sometimes we just have to stop and take a look at it all and ask why and for how long
I’ve read this book in the last 2 weeks,
and to tell the truth,
It is really doing a change in my life.
I’ve been running around lately, working, working hard, raising my kids (which is hard work as well),
raising my husband
(which has his 36 years birthday today, Mazal Tov baby!!! )
And the work part is the main time consumer of all.
wouldn’t it be amazing, if we could get up in the morning,
eat a lazy breakfast, take the kids to school while taking our time with them –
they are amazing in the morning…..
maybe go to the gym afterwords, maybe visit friends,
and work when we feel most productive and creative?
This book: The 4-Hour Workweek, Is all about it,
about how to make your work more efficient that your done with it in a couple of hours instead of a whole day,
that you concentrate on the stuff the produce the 80% income and takes 20% of your time, instead of the other way around.
This book is about brining freedom into your life instead of waiting for the promised vacation at the end.
I heartily recommend reading it.
I found these bunch of old geek jokes in this post today,
that combined with the red wine glass had for lunch made working in the afternoon impossible
the couple I loved the most were:
Unix is user friendly. It’s just very particular about who its friends are.
and another unix joke – a true classis:
Why programmers like UNIX:
unzip, strip, touch, finger, grep, mount, fsck, more, yes, fsck, fsck, fsck, umount, sleep
I’ve found this nice site today that shows youtube videos and flicker images timelines by keyword searches,
for example this great Linux youtube videos timeline you can see in the image above.
From this timeline I found this nice linux video youtube flick – about “I’m a mac”
(pc, mac and linux enter a bar…)
Some things leave an impression on people for many years,
even if they were meant to be short lived.
The Budweiser commercials are just damn good.
Every couple of years I watch them again and enjoy them like it’s the first time.
But you have to watch them in a good sequence – so here is my pick of the Budweiser Commercials:
The Original Budweiser Commercial:
The pizza version:
The girl invastion:
The wassabi version:
8 years later
The Budweiser Wassup Commercial has evolved to reflect the changes:
