Dolce far niente
2016-08-16T17:29:27Z via Puma To: Public
TIL… I guess learning today (near my 40s) what does 'dolce far niente' means, says something about me :/
Well on the bright side, I know about the existence of the “slow movement” since several years. Not everything is lost.
Recovering music and radio in my life
2016-08-01T07:51:38Z via Puma To: Public
Thanks RadioDroid, I'm listening to music and radio again at home. The radio signal is bad in my neighbourhood, and I just simply had stopped trying.
Now it's holidays and I need to rest and not think too much, so I started to use RadioDroid (first versions in my old phone were not working well, but now it's great (maybe new versions, maybe this new Galaxy S III…).

NonFree ForProfit IoT + SaaS, what could go wrong?
2016-07-31T17:50:36Z via Puma To: PublicI needed to replace a thermostat at home, so I looked into "smart" options. Oh, hell no. Radio Thermostat's appear to be the only ones even capable of being controlled locally, and they still require more network management than a sane person wants for something that will need altered maybe a few times a year. Ye simple, cheap programmable ones are just fine for saving without hassle.
Sysadmin day, and holidays
2016-07-29T13:37:31Z via Puma To: Public
Happy SysAdmin Day! Thanks to all the selfhosters and sysadmins that care about libre-software-based-infrastructure in our digital world.
I just did backups at work, deployed a lab with Clonezilla, and now holidays (holly days! mainly, rest at home, but that is what I need more, now).

Prince… I don't know very much about him but I remember I grew up seeing his image, hearing his voice from time to time in radio and tv, and I learned to respect and support diversity no matter if I like or not, or if I understand it or not.
“You don't have to be rich to be my girl, you don't have to be cool to rule my world…” this “Kiss” song I always liked very much.
Next generation internet survey for the European Union
I've just filled the Next generation internet survey for the European Union. I've talked about the internet that I want for next years: decentralized, based in open standards and free software, Internet of Things where all the things can function connecting to not only the vendors' platform but also a selfhosted one, an internet where the data is in the hands of the users, where all the software components are auditable and reproducible. An internet where components designed for restrictions as DRM are not part of our accepted standards.
Deadline is today, you can participate too: https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/nextgen-internet

Damages in essential tools

I use two thermos to bring coffee to work. Today I broke one, and discovered that the other one does not close hermetically anymore :( My bag and the coffee are safe, because I put the thermos inside a plastic bag (bad experiences makes you wise). But I have to find a new thermos (or two) :/

De camino al procomuns.net he tenido la suerte de poder ver pasar el grupo en cabeza de una Maratón en Barcelona. Espectacular.
SwellRT - an open source framework for building decentralized apps
In procomuns.net , SwellRT has been introduced. Based in Apache Wave, it's a framework to develop decentralized applications. It uses JSON Objects and the communication among servers is using XMPP. http://swellrt.org/

Speaking about pump.io in a decentralized technologies panel
Tomorrow Saturday I will be speaking about pump.io in http://procomuns.net , an event in Barcelona about commons collaborative economies.
It's a panel about decentralized technologies and different projects and proposals will be shown, and then Q&A.
Here are the slides I prepared about pump.io: https://cosas.larjona.net/pump.io
Zip with sources: https://cosas.larjona.net/pump.io/pump.io.zip
Special thanks to @Evan Prodromou for pump.io and for forwarding the invitation to the event.
During the weekend there are also lightning talks where I'll try to show also GNU MediaGoblin and GNU Social.Show all 11 repliesThis post https://aeon.co/essays/how-the-internet-flips-elections-and-alters-our-thoughts had one of the most frightening claims about Facebook I'd seen. (the claim should apply to anyone else running a large social network as well)
Is Facebook currently manipulating elections in this way? No one knows, but in my view it would be foolish and possibly even improper for Facebook not to do so. Some candidates are better for a company than others, and Facebook’s executives have a fiduciary responsibility to the company’s stockholders to promote the company’s interests.
For those who want to see just the Laura's part, it starts at 1:03:10.
It's a bit annoying the catalan translation so subs would be really appreciated even when the transcription is available (it's a large conference though so I don't really expect them haha).
Nice conference, Laura! \☺/

Encuesta en metro, preguntan si voy a estudiar ¿significa q aparento 15 años menos, o q se tiran estudiando hoy día hasta los 'taytantos?En Argentina no es del todo anormal terminar los estudios pisando los 'taytantos, al menos en las universidades públicas. Supongo que se debe a que no hay una presión económica para terminar la carrera en un tiempo determinado, y muchos trabajan y estudian al mismo tiempo.
