Gmane -- Mail To News And Back Again
Potential solution? A mostly informal, flexible base set
maintained by a standard heirarchical team rather than a
committee who are willing to patch upstream binaries in
order to maintain compatibility with pre-existing code: the
Microsoft approach

- Not as extreme, majority of software on free desktop
free software, can be upgraded for zero dollars
(automatically?) even if it's a pain for the user, so
affects breaking change cost/benefit analysis

- However, basic theory is the same: don't break
compatibility, this is more than ABI/API stability and
includes things like buggy behaviour apps depend on.

- We want to support games, these are almost always
proprietary and worse they have a max shelflife of a few
months: vendors often not interested in fixing bugs after
this date, even if people are still playing years after

Historia gráfica de la comunicación visual

Serie de ensayos sobre la evolución de los elementos gráficos, desde la prehistoria hasta el ordenador pasando por las vanguardias artísticas.

The History of Visual Communication
The primary tool by which man has visualised ideas is through the usage of writing and, by extension, type: Writing/type is the visual manifestation of the spoken word. And words are what we communicate with. Thus it is no overstatement when we say that type is the essence of visual communication and by extension of visual communication design. Type, where it is present, is simply the single most important element that you put on a page, since it inherently carries the essence of communication and communication is what our subject of study as graphic/multimedia designers is all about. Thus, the history of visual communication, i.e. the history of the visualisation of the spoken word, will largely follow the development of typographic systems, with a special focus on the Latin typographic system, given that this is the one that we are operating under.

SaxenOS - Linux moderno para ordenadores muy obsoletos

Basado en la distro ZenWalk, basada en Slackware

SaxenOS - New Power for old hardware
SaxenOS is an easy to install, familiar to use and lightweight operating system for x86 computers. It fits complete with office, multimedia and internet applications on one CD. The hardware system requirements are quite low. Already an old Pentium 2, 350 MHz with 128 MB RAM and a 2 GB harddisk is enough.

Cuando el modelo de la aplicación provoca errores terribles

The Scott Adams Meltdown: Anatomy of a Disast
The blog programmers didn't invent this error. Microsoft, for years and years, has been sabotaging new users with their “Save Changes?” dialog that greets the user when they attempt to close a document window. I had a friend of generally high intelligence, but new to computers, who spent eight hours creating a long and complex document, one he assumed was being continuously saved as had been done when he used a typewriter or pen and paper.

Right before he was ready to quit, he decided to make a few changes to what he had written. Then he clicked on the close box only to be asked, “...Save changes?” He considered what he had typed in the last few minutes and decided that it was better before his changes. He clicked, “No.” Instantly, his last 8 hours of work was irrevocably deleted.

HOWTO: ser un buen director de proyecto

Pasos útiles para gestionar un equipo, aprendidos de la experiencia.

How Do I Become an IT/IS Manager?
  1. Customer priorities, as set by my group manager. It doesn't matter
    what the clients who request work from my manager think their
    priorities are; it matters only what my manager knows the priorities are. He sees things from a much larger perspective than any individual client.
  2. Intra-team communications. We have a weekly meeting, which usually
    only takes about 15 minutes, so that each of us is aware of what the
    others are working on. While this information is usually not
    immediately useful, it often becomes so after a few weeks have passed.
    An example just today is a query I'd written that pertained directly to
    what two of my employees were working on.
  3. Conflicts with regular employees. It doesn't matter how many angels
    surround you and your team, there will always be at least one asshole.
    Watch out for this person (male or female, it can be either or both)
    and try to figure out how best to address his or her needs without
    upsetting the other priorities set for your team.
  4. Excess of meetings. My own advice: dial in to every meeting to
    which you're invited (assuming the meetings aren't in-person-- if they
    are, you're just screwed). Give the meeting about 20% of your attention
    and continue working on something else with the other 80% (with the
    phone muted, of course). If your name comes up, reverse those
    proportions immediately, then switch back once the conversation's done
    with you. I'm not saying to only give 20% of your energy to any given
    effort. I'm only suggesting that in most meetings, you can listen with
    20% of your attention while continuing to get measurable work done with
    the other 80%. There have been many meetings in which I never did need
    to switch gears at all, for that matter.
  5. I work for an intelligent manager (the opposite of a PHB) who has a
    very clear and concise vision toward which he wants our entire group
    (which comprises much more than my contract team) to work. As a result,
    particularly since he is an attendee at my weekly meetings, we are
    slowly but surely able to aim toward that goal.

Líneas maestras de la CMT sobre la regulación de la fibra óptica

La CMT publica las bases de la regulación de las redes de nueva generación FTTH :: ADSL Zone : Portal y Foro sobre ADSL ADSL2+ VDSL2 Imagenio

Resumen de las líneas maestras sobre la regulación de las redes de nueva generación

La CMT apuesta por FTTH (fibra hasta el hogar) lo cual es un gran
acierto ya esta tecnología está ofreciendo
magníficos resultados en otros países de Europa
más avanzados.

Asimismo, el regulador propone que
haya varias redes compitiendo además del operador incumbente, en
este caso Telefónica. De este modo se fomentaría la
competencia y el usuario final dispondría de diferentes
alternativas a diferente precio.

La CMT reconoce que los operadores que no inviertan en fibra van a estar en segundo plano porque no van a poder replicar las ofertas ni ofrecer los mismos servicios.

regulación es muy compleja y en ella está el futuro a
largo plazo de las telecomunicaciones en España. Por ello, la
CMT tiene que realizar análisis de mercados para comprobar si
existe competencia, antes de imponer obligaciones a los operadores. A
lo largo del 2008 se irán conociendo más detalles y en
sólo tres meses, finalizará el plan piloto de Telefónica que podría ser el pistoletazo de salida para el lanzamiento comercial de la modalidad 30 Mbps / 1 Mbps

Cómo tratar con un jefe desorganizado

Dealing with an Unorganized Boss at Productivity501
This is the first in a series of posts listing common problems you’ll face with an unorganized supervisor and some suggestions on how to best deal with them.

Cómo convencer a tu jefe para permitirte el teletrabajo

Convince Your Boss to Let you Work from Home at Productivity501

Determine the Business Reason You Should Be Allowed to Work From Home


This is where I see most people fail. Here are some of the things

employees are likely to say and what their boss is going to actually


  • I’ll be able to spend more time with my kids. Boss hears: I’ll

    spend half of my time babysitting instead of working. Clients will

    hear screaming babies in the back ground when they call me.
  • I won’t have to deal with the long commute and traffic. Boss hears: I’ll
    spend my first 45 minutes of work waking up and eating breakfast.
    I’m looking forward to working all day in my pajamas.

Notice that each of these items focus on the advantages for the

employee. No matter how nice, your boss doesn’t really care if working

from home would be convenient for you. You are working for money–not

for your convenience. If you want your boss to get on board, you need

to address issues that your boss is actually concerned about. Here are

a couple things that might concern your boss:

  1. Lack of offices and cubicles for new hires.
  2. Increasing employee productivity.
  3. Attracting and retaining valuable employees.
  4. Increasing billable hours.
  5. Being environmentally friendly.
  6. Expense of employee parking.

KDE: las aplicaciones vacías dan una mala primera impresión

Getting Real: The Blank Slate (by 37signals)
the natural state of the app is one that's devoid of data. When someone
signs up, they start with a blank slate. Much like a weblog, it's up to
them to populate it — the overall look and feel doesn't take shape
until people enter their data: posts, links, comments, hours, sidebar
info, or whatever.
Unfortunately, the customer decides if an application is worthy at this
blank slate stage — the stage when there's the least amount of
information, design, and content on which to judge the overall
usefulness of the application. When you fail to design an adequate
blank slate, people don't know what they are missing because everything
is missing.

First impression matters « Aurélien’s room

As an example, here is the KMix main window on my laptop on the
first start (rm ~/.kde/share/config/kmixrc to check how it looks on
your machine):

First impression matters

Not really handy, is it?

After fiddling a bit with the code, here is it what I got:

Por qué el canon digital mata la cultura

Este argumento explica que el canon sobre los dispositivos digitales para pagar a los creadores de música sólo sirve para que las grandes industrias hagan lo posible para matar la innovación.

The Music Industry’s Last Stand Will Be A Music Tax
Music industry revenues will be a set size, regardless of the quality or type of music they release. Incentives to innovate will evaporate. There will only be competition for market share, with no attempt to build the size of market or serve less-popular niches. Forget labels building new brands and encouraging early artists to succeed - they’ll bleed existing big names for all they are worth and work hard to keep anything new - labels, artists, and songwriters - out of the market. New entrants just means more competition for a static amount of money. Collusion by existing players will run rampant.

Fuentes tipográficas: estudio comparativo de eficacia

Estudia cuáles se leen mejor, más deprisa, y son más bonitas.

Usability News - 4.1 2002 -- A Comparison of Popular Online Fonts: Which Size and Type is Best?


observations can be made regarding the examined font types. First, no
significant differences in reading efficiency were detected between the
font types at any size. There were, however, significant differences in
reading time. Generally, Times and
Arial were read faster than Courier, Schoolbook, and
Georgia. Fonts at the 12-point size were read faster than fonts at the
10-point size. In addition, a font type x size interaction
was found for the perception of font legibility. In
general, however,
Arial, Courier, and Georgia were perceived as the
most legible.

font attractiveness, Georgia was perceived as being
more attractive than Arial, Courier, and Comic, while Times was perceived as more attractive than Courier. This contrasts
with participants' general preference for a particular font type. Overall, Verdana
was the most preferred font, while Times was the least preferred. Thus it
seems that the Georgia and Times serif fonts are considered more
attractive, but they are generally less preferred. Of the fonts studied,
Verdana appears to be the best overall font choice. Besides being the most
preferred, it was read fairly quickly and was perceived as being

with all studies that examine reading performance, caution should be
made in generalizing these outcomes to other font types. Many factors
should be taken into account, such as individual text characteristics,
the text size, the line and character spacing, the computer settings,
as well as the user characteristics.

Note: A discussion of our font
studies, as well as other studies related to online text can be found at http://www.optimalweb.org

Complexity Map | documentation > introduction

Desired functionality vs accidental complexity

So, if accidental complexity
is not measured during a development trajectory, it might become a
substantial part of the application without the application's owners
realizing it. Accidental complexity is an unwanted by-product of the
development of new functionality.

Complexity Map allows accidental complexity to be
measured and managed, just as the development of new features is managed. The result is a nearly debt-free codebase and
a sustainable development process, which allows the organization to quickly release new features.

Elementos de diseño visual (aplicados a paginas web)

LukeW: Visible Narratives: Understanding Visual Organization
Putting it to use

Any given web page is composed of many distinct elements. Navigation
menus (possibly several layers deep), contact information, search
boxes, site identifiers, and shopping carts are just a few. The visual
organization of a web page can communicate valuable information about
the similarities and differences between elements and their relative
importance. Once your audience understands the significance of your
page elements, they can apply that knowledge to the rest of the site.

La magia de la tecnología

Esta idea ya la había tenido yo, aunque este la explica de forma más convincente: la metáfora más intuitiva y habitual para los objetos "mejorados" por las nuevas tecnologías, es la del "objeto mágico".

There must be an existing metaphor for objects that sense, analyze, communicate and act.

Yes, 'magic', meaning enchanted objects. "I do not advocate that we pretend that technology is a kind of magic, but that we use our existing cultural understanding of magic objects as an abstraction to describe the behavior of ubiquitous computing devices,", says Kuniavsky.

A startup business plan is always a good piece of fiction filled with great ideas. No one really believes what he reads in them. What venture capitalists look for before they make an investment is a proven product with strong market demand and an experienced management team. And angel investors usually invest in vision and enthusiasm.

Countdown to Product Launch (Part II)
A business model is the nuts and bolts of how a business generates revenue and profits. When preparing a business model, there are seven basics you should consider:

1. Reaching customers. How are you going to find customers or have them find you?
2. Differentiating your product. What makes you better than everyone else?
3. Pricing. What can you charge that will bring profit to you and value to the customer?
4. Selling. Learn to sell for survival and develop a sales process.
5. Distribution strategy. How will you deliver the goods?
6. Support. What does the customer do if your product breaks?
7. Customer satisfaction. How are you going to turn customers into loyal fans?

Account sign-in - 8 design mistakes to avoid - GUUUI
Jared Spool has watched users struggle with online accounts and sign-in procedures. From his observations, he has compiled a list of 8 common design mistakes:

1. Requiring users to crate an account when it really isn't necessary (e.g. when buying a product or downloading a white paper)

2. Requiring users to sign in before they are ready to do so (e.g. before they can see the products they can buy)

3. Not stating the benefits to creating an account (such as the option to change flight reservations after they are made)

4. Hiding the sign-in button

5. Not making "Create New Account" or "Forgot Your Password" a button or link

Not providing sign-in opportunities when people need them (e.g. at the
checkout where it can save people for re-entering their billing

7. Asking for too much information when registering

8. Not telling users how their information will be used (e.g. not giving a reason for asking people for their phone number)

The Four Laws of Simplicity, and How to Apply Them to Life | Zen Habits
It’s been nearly a decade since I first started trying to simplify my life, and in those years I’ve struggled with clutter, I’ve had surges and ebbs of complications and simplicity, I’ve tried dozens of methods of simplifying from as many sources.

I’ve boiled it down to a simple method of Four Laws of Simplicity ... that you can use on any area of your life, and in fact on your life as a whole:

1. Collect everything in one place.

2. Choose the essential.

3. Eliminate the rest.

4. Organize the remaining stuff neatly and nicely.
