Sad, but true.
Social networks, as they are used, are increasingly making us ANTI-social. But whether that's because we exaggerate in what we share (many are all too keen to sharing every minute and thought of their lives) or because we haven't developed new etiquette rules for the do's and don'ts of these technologies, that's for the jury to decide.

I prefer to think that social networks exist to COMPLEMENT the friendships I have with the people that live close to me, and to SUPPLEMENT those that moved away due to education or work, but we still talk and wish to interact.

Another case of #DisconnectToReconnect perhaps.

Each and every one of us is a storyteller. A storyteller of our journey into existing ... it's surreal to consider the thought that how we tell our own story can shape and define us and yet at the same time, it is a coherent, reasonable and liberating revelation.

This is a true cautionary tale. Facebook's filtering, monetization and restriction might compromise its very existence on the long run.

Worth watching and thinking about it.

Between this and Snapchat, besides a guy from Microsoft getting fired because of a few irresponsible tweets, I see a paradigm shift in its initial conception stages.

Give it a whole year to see whether it might grow into a full wave or it'll turn out to be as ephemeral as the experience it provides.

I never imagined that the toy industry could be a viable career path for a chemical engineer.

Well, color me surprised. What a fascinating read!

UPDATE: Polygon is a great source of in-depth knowledge on the matter. And so is this AMA on reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/Games/comments/1vvvkh/the_great_tm_saga_ama_with_monaibrahim_game/

I support #TheBannerSaga .
And I have to thank King.com for that; had they not done what they did to Stoic Studios (http://www.polygon.com/2014/1/22/5335766/stoic-king-is-hindering-banner-saga-sequel), I wouldn't know that this game exists.

So I guess this is my way of saying thanks to them ... giving the underdog my money, simply out of spite for the big bully.

This certainly looks promising, at least on paper: Winamp is a classic and arguably still-popular audio player that was an absolute fever during the '90s and early '00s but ended up fading because didn't invest in freeflowing information and community support. Radionomy, which supports DIY internet radio, might be just the philosophy that Winamp needs to resurface onto the spotlight.

Perhaps. I'll be on the lookout for more news on this...

The future does not belong to those who wait.
Introduction
Put me in circles ...
  • ... that talk about rugby.
  • ... that talk about rock climbing.
  • ... that talk about bodybuilding.
  • ... that talk about physical activities and general fitness.
  • ... that talk about really cool gadgets and technologies.
  • ... that talk about video games.
  • ... that talk about RPGs.
Talk to me ...
  • ... about ideas, creativity and the stuff of innovation.
  • ... about fun, exciting projects, both personal and professional ones.
  • ... about your perspective on the world, but only if you have an open mind yourself.
I might share with the world at large whenever I feel like it, but chances are good that if you don't apply in any of the stuff I've written above, you won't hear at all from me. I don't talk to digital ghosts.

On weekend nights, the place gets really busy so you might wait a long time before getting a table. The size of the Waiters' staff seemed reasonable but they move at a hectic pace so placing an order or closing a bill might take some time. But these shouldn't be a problem if you're just going out with friends for fun. One major problem, however, is the food. It's cooked with too much oil.

[PT-BR] Solicitei alguns trabalhos com essa empresa em 2012 e 2013. Me atenderam prontamente e de maneira bem eficiente. A qualidade de impressão ficou muito boa e tenho recomendado à amigos publicitários. [EN-US] Have been doing business with them since 2012. Good crew all-around, and very punctual when delivering finished jobs. Print quality was top-notch. Definitely one of the best print shops in the area -- I recommend it!
