    stuff left behind.New category. T.e.c.H. 

    I’ve spent these latest days running behind a couple of projects,exactly as when you’re trying to fix a picture on the wall and the 5-minutes-work become a 5-hours-work, and the movements enabled are almost the same: you half-close your eyes for better see, focus your attention on a particular, incline your head now to the left, now to the right, take a deep breath and start all over again. The difference is that there’s no frame but just a computer screen in front of you.

    Anyway, that’s Arduino’s fault- my new lover- to be honest are days that I don’t touch it, but I’m deep in the process to collect all the super-fast experiences-emotions-regrets-ideas-lessons of the workshop just passed and I lost myself several times in the attempt to orient myself in this jungle of kind-of- engineering knowledge.
    During these endless internet journeys I’ve discovered a lot of bullshit and lot of diamonds and I wouldn’t miss the opportunity to spend words on both.

    but I think that these diamonds need a new category where to stay.. let’s call it T.e.c.H. as acronym of This Empathy Calls Headache or The Electricity Can Hurt or The Educative (and) Cool Hacking or Thinker Easily Caught Hearts, all entries that could be a name for an indie Canadian band, whatever meaning you link to T.e.c.H. is just tech.

    ps. The bullshit will be still publish in BlaBlaBla

    Procrastination 

    It’s been quite long, isn’t?

    It’s all my fault, i’ve been busy for a couple of weeks with several projects: apes, parking space, something i’ve censored.

    Let’s start with some explanations:

    Censored…NOTHING , and no, unfortunately isn’t even that NOTHING is just nothing.

    Current mood: I hate dishwashers, washing-machines and fridges.

    Second instance:  Apes i need to know more about apes. That’s all.

    Third part: parking car lot! oh that’s my favorite: design something cool, provocative and sustainable in a single parking space for a contest in Milan.

    Summarizing in two words: Interaction Design, baby! I should call instantly my mum and tell her this wonderful opportunity that God gave to me, i’m sure she would be so proud of me, cause finally i’m an interaction designer!

    Yes ok, the project is cool: a kind of space between guerrilla gardening, Tibetan prayers and a zen walk-through..but this is really Interaction Design? and more.. this is really Industrial Design?? ( maybe).

    Anyway we all know that when you’re working hard on something, when you’re really stressed, there’s only one way to work out until that stupid deadline…procrastination.

    The word procrastination in my life is a sort of sacred Graal.

    I’m very good in  procrastination, i’m sure i could beat the All Blacks procrastinating, even now i’m here writing a post instead of being at home preparing my dinner, procrastinate……………… is so natural to me.

    Anyway i don’t want to be redundant more than I actually am (i can always use postponing :P) so during this endless two weeks of P. i’ve discovered: i primi dieci .

    It’s a cool website about charts and unfortunately is only in Italian, but believe me is really funny and i can find myself in a lot of stuff there.

    I should make a chart of the ten best ways for Procrastinate.

    Star.t. 

    So, ok. This is the starting point,’cause somewhere and somehow there must be a starting point.

    Few days are passed by since the furious creation of ‘every THING’, but nothing has come yet.

    Not because i’ve nothing interesting to share or i’m afraid to write down bullshits (i’m never scare of that), but beacuse i was just waiting for the right time.

    It’s almoust noon, a hour that it’s always been my friend, and i have a cup of espresso on my desk ready to give me courage.

    Noon plus espresso vs apathy. Two against one. I must write something.

    To contain the problem of my shyness i decided to consider this blog also as a language exercise and that’s why i’m writing in this ramshackle english instead to use my -more evolved- first language.

    Well, anyway..here we are.
