I'm a Site Reliability Engineer and a Go developer.
Introduction
Hi. I'm a Systems Engineer, born in Brazil and living in Zurich with my wife Carla and our two boys.

Things I like to do in my free time:
  • read books. I've been reading quite a lot since I bought a Kindle. See my library in the LibraryThing.
  • write simple open source programs, mostly in the Go programming language. #golang
  • travel. Our family is slowly discovering Europe.
  • electronic games
Most of my public posts are in English, but I may occasionally write something in Portuguese. You can use a Google Chrome extension to translate such posts, if you want.

I am a huge fan of +Stanislas Dehaene and all research he does. Quote from an article published today:

the authors developed machine learning algorithms to decode the content of these images directly from these large and complex neuroimaging data.

The thing I'm curious about is: are we going to be able to understand how the brain encodes images and create our own code that does it? Machine learn models that we can't understand are so uncool. See also: https://github.com/mne-tools/mne-python
A team of scientists has mapped out how our brains process visuals we don't even know we've seen, indicating that the neuronal encoding and maintenance of subliminal images is more substantial than previously thought.

quote: "When the cost of any input falls so precipitously, there are two other well-established economic implications. First, we will start using prediction to perform tasks where we previously didn’t. Second, the value of other things that complement prediction will rise."

This is gonna be awesome. It's also kinda crazy that a developer update video for a game would have 330k views on a single day.

nice talk about mechanics and rationales.
Two choice move recalls me many of Gipf series board games - especially Tzaar :).
Even I don't play this video game, it's nice to listen about all mechanics, and how thing interact with each other.

Google+ still works fine for me and I still read it multiple times a day. It just doesn't work not in the way that the G+ team wants it to work. Collections provide me close to zero value. When I think about it, I use Google+ like I use twitter. I'm here to read y'all posts and reshares, that's it. So keep doing it please :-P.

<We still like G+. There are dozens of us>.

I like Collections because not all my readers are interested in all my posts - not everyone is going to be interested in my political rants, and not everyone is interested in reading about Pokemon Go either.

There are so many good things about this video. The great music. Elton John's voice. The cheery vibe that doesn't match the sadness of the music. And one or two people who are supposed to be dancing but clearly have no idea how to follow the rhythm :-).

Interesting bundle. The bash cookbook was probably one of the most important books I've read when learning Linux stuff.
 
Unix, I nix. We called up our friends at O'Reilly to put together this bundle of Unix (and Linux and more) resources for all. Find your nutshell reference, your pocket guide, and your power tools here in the Humble Book Bundle: Unix presented by O'Reilly!

I feel like I should buy that just out of respect for skills I've lost. At one point I owned paper copies of all but 2 of them (although older versions).

Why are people cynical about politics in the US? Obama answered this question a few months ago and was on point as usual.

+David Mace for the record, I am listening. Not because you should have more knowledge of US politics than me simply because you were born here (you might be surprised), but because listening is the right thing to do.

+David Hixson I hear ya. For today at least I decided to keep working on my Overwatch skills.

+Paweł Zuzelski  I spent a lot of time on Civ and Civ 2, but not on the later ones. I never felt like they were as fun as the original stuff. </getoffmylawn>. But I'm very happy with the look of the new UI. The previous ones were super boring IMO.
