We are hiring!

If you are following The Witness blog you may have heard that we are looking for programmers, if not, go check it out. I’ve been working on The Witness for a bit more than a year. So, I thought it might be a good time to write a bit about my experience so far, in […]

Back Online

You may have noticed my blog has been down during the last few months. I had some trouble with the server and lost all my posts. Unfortunately I did not have backups so it took quite some effort to restore them. At least I’ve managed to recover most articles and some of the posts that […]

Life

A lot has been going on in the last few months. Mariana is 14 weeks pregnant, so we are expecting to have another kid by the beginning of November. She has just finished her studies and has found herself a job at EMQ/FamiliesFirst. She works counseling problematic children and loves it so far, but she […]

I’m now able […]

Standing Desk 2

So, I finally bought the Ikea standing desk and I’ve been using it full time during this week. As many predicted my feet hurt, and at the end of the day I feel extremely tired, almost as if I had been hiking, which is actually quite a nice feeling. For once I now get to […]

The foie gras parable

I loved this talk from Blue Hill’s Chef Dan Barber. I’m not convinced that what the organic/ethical/slow food movement advocates is the most sustainable way of producing food and feed the world. For example, I’m not necessarily opposed to the use of technology to produce food, as long as it’s done responsibly. It’s the use […]
