Welcome to my corner of the web, where I keep notes on the business of developing software based solutions that collect data and turn it into intuitively actionable information.

IT Sections

The IT section covers the whole process of Application Development, among other topics.

The Glossary is an organised entry point to notes on industry technologies, protocols and products, and business terms one hears.

Presentations

To take your time going over a presentation I have given, view it again on the Presentations page.

Blog

Or simply read the Blogs during my Pomodoro breaks between trying to find solutions to problems under lack of time, budget and your average IT duress.

“You don’t see it but it exists; it is made of air and spirit,” he said in a video showcasing the piece.

“It is a work that asks you to activate the power of the imagination, a power that anyone has, even those who don’t believe they have it.”

« This is a classic case of a Fixed Mindset. Carol Dweck’s brilliant book ‘Mindset’ talks about how some people have a Fixed Mindset and other people have a Growth Mindset. The Fixed Mindset is when you want to maintain an image of yourself in others’ perception. You worry about who you are. Any attribute is a part of your permanent identity. The Growth Mindset is when you don’t think your every action reflects your immutable identity. You think about what you do, instead of who you are.

In case of a failure, the Fixed Mindset wants to hide it because it degrades his image. People with the Fixed Mindset will have a worse image of themselves as a result. The Growth Mindset will examine the failure to see what is to be learned from it. People with this mindset don’t think that the failure reflects anything about themselves, but rather is data to learn how to do things better.

It is quite obvious the Growth Mindset would lead to success. That is what Carol Dweck’s data revealed for school children.

“The benefits of bottoming out the gut are clear; how the back door was excavated isn’t. Soft, squishy, bone-free holes aren’t exactly fixtures of the fossil record, making just about any anus-heritage theory tough to prove. One of the oldest hypotheses holds that the anus and the mouth originated from the same solo opening, which elongated, then caved in at the center and split itself in two. The newly formed anus then moseyed to the animal’s posterior. Claus Nielsen, a developmental biologist at the Natural History Museum of Denmark, is a fan of this theory. It’s both reasonably parsimonious and evolutionarily equitable: In this scenario, neither the mouth nor the anus technically arose first; they emerged as perfect developmental twins.”

ie. Explains why so much talk is just shit.

        1. valueless to valued (characterwise).
        2. self-esteeming themselves first,
        3. while gaining social esteem but relying on it only as a check-sum of their own self-assessment,
        4. progressing at their achievable pace along the continuum of:
