Do You Feel It?

All around me, things are happening at an accelerated pace compared to last year. People I know are changing jobs, taking trips they never thought they’d take, creating new things, starting new ventures, and moving on to new phases in their lives.

The Time of Augmented Imagination

Last year I made a remark about the crazy world we were living in, with “GenAI” this and “AI” that, including some weird experiences. But I have recently decided to bite the bullet and learn more about all this.

The Playlist of 2023

After the list of books and movies, here’s the playlist of the songs I’ve enjoyed the most in 2023, aka the playlist of my life last year, including what Spotify has to say about it. Enjoy!

Shows and Movies of 2023

Last year I published the list of shows and movies I watched or re-watched in 2022. Here is the list of 2023. I do not recommend them all; some of it was great, some was utterly forgettable.

Best Books of 2023

In 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 I published lists of books I enjoyed every year. Then I enumerated those I read from 2014 to 2019, and then the ones of 2021 and 2022.

Remembering SETI@Home

I recently saw a toot on Mastodon about the end of the SETI@Home program… and it brought back memories of the late 1990s.

Microcelebrities

My wife is a yarn geek. She knits beautiful garments, but she also dyes and sells her own yarn on her online shop. We often go to trade shows, with a literal truckload of hand-dyed yarns, to sell her products. And in those events I discovered that there are “microcelebrities” in the yarn world, just like there are in the software world.

30 Years of Product Naming Trends

Here is an extension of a popular tweet I once wrote, extending it both backward and forward in time, with some actualizations.

5 Years of Full-Time Linux

Five years ago I bought a TUXEDO Computers laptop and finished my migration to Linux completely, without ever looking back.
