Twenty years ago this day, one of the random generators in life put me on a plane to Switzerland with a one way ticket and all my possessions in a backpack. I was supposed to be here one year only, but life knows better than that. Plus, once you have tasted the chocolate there is no going back.
Of course, I'm proud of my Mexican roots, and thankful for my friends in the US and in Europe. But for now, this is the place I call home. Therefore, today I celebrate the day with the best chocolate cake there is.

If there's no afterlife or reason for the universe, how do you make your life matter? Warning: the last answer may break your heart.

Do you ever stare at the wallpaper and see faces or animals?  Well, neural networks can also see them. Take a look at the picture gallery and enjoy the text that explains how the system works and what they did to create this "Computer generated art"

Introduction

I like to write about the psychology behind social media. Below a list of the most popular articles I have published in the last months. 

I have also published a Kindle book with a selection of these articles. Amazon prime members can lend it for free. 

- Maslows hierarchy of needs applied to social media. Crowd sourced with contributions by +Rod Dunne , +Denis Labelle, +Giselle Minoli, +Jack C Crawford and the folks at +Media Tapper 

- What motivates us to post on G+ 

- Why G+ gets you in the flow state and why it is a good thing. 

- The G+ smart swarm 

- Your time perspective affects how you build your friendships

- Which improvements bring Google to social media

- The power of diversity

- Why media stars top the most followed lists

- Google + is the new meme exchange

- When less information is more

And the last one if you want to know how the Kindle book was put together 

I am an engineering manager working with a great team at Aizo/ digitalSTROM. We work at the conjuction of smart home and energy management. 

DigitalSTROM products provide connectivity to electrical devices in the home over the existing power cables. This includes every lamp, light switch, blinds and any device plugged in. This network of devices is connected through a server mounted in the electrical cabinet to a local area network. Our applications begin with the intelligent, comfortable and energy efficient orchestration of lights, shades and any electrical devices at home.

Digitalstrom components are based on a high volt IC in a small size clamp.  Its minimal size allows mounting it behind existing lights and switches. This allows retrofitting houses using the existing power cables. Each digitalSTROM clamp can switch, dim, measure electricity and communicate its status. It also has its own processor enabling decentralized intelligence.

I am a singularitarian, a geek dad, and a music lover. I enjoy cooking all kinds of stuff and love traveling around the world. My favorite spots? Tokio, the Mayan riviera and San Sebastian in Spain.
