Experimenting a bit

November 13, 2009

Ok, enough with the analog vs digital rant, I don’t want anybody here to think I’m some kind of analog retro-nerd :-P

Besides, it was just a weak attempt at writing something that made reference to the title of the blog. But, like I said in the first post, this is not a technical blog, nor it intends to be a passionate vindication of the old ways. Truth is, I’m very happy to be living in the digital era. But a little reflection on why things are the way they are doesn’t hurt anybody, does it?

Today I would like to talk about something completely unrelated. Because I feel like it. It may take me some time to focus on a theme and a coherent structure for this blog, I need to experiment a bit with different topics, options, and so on, until I find a way to make this an interesting place to spend your fifteen minutes of choice. So I’m afraid you’ll have to bear with me until we get there. Of course, feedback is always appreciated. Let me know what you like, and what you don’t. Thanks.

So, today it’s about writing something entertaining. And short. Short is important. It’s a resolution I’ve made recently, to try and say what I want to say using the smallest number of words possible. Because, frankly, the rest is just noise, and we have enough of that on the Internet already.

I think I’ve got it. Today it’s about a movie: Lost in Translation. If you haven’t seen it, I strongly encourage you to do it like, right now. Seriously. I’ll wait for you to be done and we’ll continue this later.

How’s that for short? Yeah, I thought so, too…
