Made in Italy: eccellenze in digitale

Il Made in Italy è un brand fatto di prodotti, di stile di vita, di cultura e di luoghi ed è riconosciuto e ricercato all’estero.

Dopo l’annuncio fatto da Eric Schmidt nei mesi scorsi, lanciamo oggi Made in Italy: eccellenze in digitale. ll progetto, realizzato insieme a Ministero delle Politiche Agricole Alimentari e Forestali (MiPAAF), Unioncamere, Università Ca’ Foscari e Fondazione Symbola, si propone di avvicinare le imprese del Made in Italy alla rete e al suo grande potenziale economico e di export, far conoscere le eccellenze nascoste del nostro Paese attraverso una piattaforma digitale realizzata dal Google Cultural Institute e valorizzare i giovani come promotori della transizione al digitale dell’economia italiana.

Su google.it/madeinitaly sarà possibile scoprire, attraverso un centinaio di mostre digitali, fatte di racconti, immagini, video e documenti storici, le eccellenze del sistema agroalimentare e dell’artigianato italiano, la loro storia e il loro legame con il territorio.

Non solo. L’iniziativa Made in Italy: eccellenze in digitale si propone anche di contribuire a far sì che le imprese, in particolare le piccole e medie, siano in grado di cogliere i benefici economici derivanti da Internet. A questo scopo è dedicato il sito www.eccellenzeindigitale.it.

In Google crediamo che il digitale possa fornire un contributo concreto per diffondere l’eccellenza italiana nel mondo. Per questo abbiamo sviluppato e realizzato Made in Italy: eccellenze in digitale, un’iniziativa pensata e realizzata appositamente per l’Italia, che ci auguriamo possa contribuire ad aumentare la capacità delle imprese italiane di fare export e promuovere ulteriormente la cultura del Made in Italy nel mondo.

Steve Jobs died 2 years ago today, RIP Steve

Let's put aside the biased hate for a moment. Google+ might be a very non-Apple-centic network, but let's put that aside for a moment and look at the accomplishments of a man that changed our world.

We use computers everyday for personal use. Steve realized that computers could be personal devices and not just business tools ran by the good fellows over at IBM. Because of this, the Apple computer was born.

Steve fueled the design and effectiveness of personal computers with the Macintosh computer and later the iMac computer showing the world that computers didn't have to be big, ugly, and bulky. They could be sexy too.

After Steve got fired from Apple, he went on to create NeXT. Did you know that the very first web server was ran on a NeXT machine? It was a NeXTcube. While he may not have invented TCP/IP, HTML, or the HTTP protocol, he did play a role in bringing those capabilities to everyone thanks to one of his products.

A few years later we saw the Macbook Air and Macbook Pro. Those notebook computers are the pillar of excellence. Not only are the designs of these devices so popular that other manufacturers have been trying to create 'Ultrabooks' to compare, they are extremely powerful.

Steve continued to change the world. Like it or not, the iPod changed the music industry on a large scale with iTunes. We were all downloading music illegally until then. The iPod and iTunes revolutionized the music industry. Look at how many online music stores are available today.

Next up, something we're all more familiar with, the iPhone. Sure, the iPhone might not be a technology for most of us, but it did help start the smartphone revolution. Sure, other smartphones existed before the iPhone but they couldn't compare in functionality or usefulness. The iPhone helped jump-start this industry when it was in it's infancy.

As for the iPad, yes, the iPad did once again change the way the world thinks and the way the world uses and needs products. Other tablets existed for years (Windows XP Tablet Edition anyone?) but they just didn't catch on. They weren't popular, they were heavy, they were clunky, and most importantly, they lacked functionality. Steve stepped up again, and brought this technology to the masses. Since then, tablets have changed the world and are used everywhere.

Even though I never bought an Apple product, I can appreciate all of Apple's and Steve's accomplishments. Most of all, I miss his visions and his ability to drive entire markets.

RIP STEVE JOBS

Lastly, Steve would have NEVER let anything such as this abomination below reach consumers. He would have designed the case with a larger hole at the bottom to adequately show off the phones branding. To let the world know that you're proudly using an iPhone and not a hon device.

If rolling over in your grave is a thing that can really happen, I'm sure Steve has done it several times recently.

Story
Tagline
Gentleman and Scholar Software Developer
Introduction

I work as Application Developer for Appcelerator, the  leading mobile platform company that created Titanium™, a platform that lets you develop native, hybrid and mobile web applications from a single codebase.

Before that, I have been working as Software Developer and Operations Engineer for Funambol, a mobile open source company with headquarters in Foster City, California, and development in Pavia, Italy.

I mainly work with web-related technologies: I like programming especially with HTML/Javascript in the client side, PHP/mySQL on server side. I've always been fond of technology, since I received my first computer: a Commodore 64, centuries ago. Few years later, I joined the development world with my Amiga 500, and then I moved to web-related languages and mobile.

I have a passion for travelling and my very favorite destination abroad is Georgia - no, not the one with Atlanta! I fell in love with the place and went back there several times: it's a place that stays in your heart. During my trips I love taking photos - I've a reflex which I can't yet use properly, although I really like some of my pictures.

I also like going around with my bike, hanging out and playing board games with my friends, get the last tech devices that come out and, last but not least, reading books. And if you are wondering why Gentleman and Scholar, that's only because a few people told me those exact words during my customer support work experience.

Activities

On June 2012 I got completed the classes and obtained the Titanium Certified Application Developer (TCAD) and the Titanium Certified Mobile Developer (TCMD) certifications.

On March 2011 I partecipated, together with my friend Marco, to the Codefest Virtual Combat, a contest organized by the Department of Computer Engineering of Banaras Hindu University, India. The competition was a java AI programming contest based on Robocode; our team Fideeteam got the third place.

On January 2002 I got the first place at the Italy's Regional Selections for the 14th International Olympiad in Informatics, which allowed me to partecipate to the National Selections. The IOI is an international programming competition for high school students.

Little restaurant ten minutes walking from King's Cross. Definitely worth to try if you never had Georgian food, or if you miss it. Tasted good megruli khachapuri and khinkali, they offer a good variety of dishes.
