Nature + time lapse

no need for words.







Well, I do need to say a couple of things:
  1. None of these are my work. I just found them on the web and thought others would like to watch these beautiful videos.
  2. The first one is from my country of origin.
  3. The other two are from were I've been living for the past few years.

XCode font size change

In XCode 3, changing the editor's font size and color is easy: simply go to the preferences, font & color and voila. But changing the rest of the fonts (Groups & Files panel and Project details panel) is not possible through the preferences.

Playing at TEDxSV

Great day today. Woke up early to play TweetDreams at TEDx Silicon Valley. It went really well! Nice intro by Luke and enthusiastic participation by the audience. Received good comments from lots of people, including WIRED Magazine's Chris Anderson and the official TED's June Cohen.

In the evening we met with some friends that we haven't seen in a while. Nice ending for a great day.

Static Web Generators

Sometimes I've come across the need of creating a small website, where a CMS or other Dynamic Web Development Frameworks (e.g. Rails or Django) are either too much or not available due to server restrictions. Of course, one option is to do it by hand, but that is usually tedious and in general, a bad idea. So I decided to look for tools to develop good quality static websites (plain HTML+CSS files, maybe with JS), keeping a nice separation between content and presentation.

Ceviche en california

One of my favorite dishes is Ceviche (apparently is also spelled cebiche). Traditionally we use Corvina, but is impossible to find it here in the Bay Area (some people say that it is chilean sea bass, but I don't agree). So I decided to experiemnt with different fishes to replace it. Here I'll post my opinioins about them.
