I did a talk about using Yahoo Blueprint for creating mobile sites, and then helped some people with their BP hacks. You can check them all in the hackday page, and slides are linked to slideshare below
This week I got another book on economic theory, and thought about sharing the best explained summary of one of the main reasons of the economy crisis this year: subprime mortgages.
P.S. para los espanyoles, la traduccion no es perfecta, pero al menos se entiende]]>

So terrible! couldn’t stop this morning!
Oh well.. slides can’t compete with a good flash game… XKCD is sooo right…
By the way, we’re trying to organize some hacking day around Lego… let’s see what we can come up with… all ideas welcome!]]>
If you still don’t believe me, check out Alembik, the web/media transcoding service they have released as open source and that is part of the core of their “kubes” project. This initiatives are what all mobile web should be about, because (in their own words) “conversion of content to mobile should be a commodity”
Now, if only some companies out there were thinking the same way… *sigh*]]>
Of course, while i make this work, you can always download the PPT directly here
It was a really good event! Maybe a bit too “marketing” for my taste at the beginning, but then it went really nice. The best of all: the people of course! Starting with those who attended, that asked questions afterwards, and that sent me mail or IMs to ask questions about widgets… and ending up with my wonderfulous hosts Bobby, Bogdan, Maria and Andreea. Thanks a lot to all for making this a great experience!
Oh! and also: last time I was in Bucharest I was in the same area my hotel was this time, but couldn’t find any decent place to go out. Turns out on top of the old building of the National Theatre, right next to where i was, there’s this AWESOME terrace, with open-air tables, benches, paintings of different artists lying on the walls… and the music was just perfect! Thanks Maria for the tip!
(now, if only i could find some photos of the place…)]]>
So, if anybody is around Bucharest (you know, by chance) and wants to check it out… ping me!
