Queen

Today I was reading something on internet (Mikser House, to be more precise) and found this. I remember similar company in Croatia tried something similar but albeit very nice products they failed due to unrealistically high prices. Let us all wish luck to “Moj bicikl”…   links: http://www.mojbicikl.rs/index.html http://house.mikser.rs/en/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xt0V0_1MS0Q

Platform Diversity

I am freelancer. I got nice engagements with some serious companies dealing with financial institutions. Phone is my tool. I do not have any games on it, no Facebook. More/less productivity applications (not all of them, Instagram is not productivity application but it is very good for a free time we all have). For last few days I am using iPhone. Plus model. As my primary phone and workhorse I used to use Lenovo Phab Read more…

Sixteen Years

I was 25 then. Sitting comfortably in tram minding my own business. Still young I used to wear cargo pants with large pockets on side. Usually filled with all kind of something. Have in mind that it was before gadget time. No iPods, no smartphones… We used to carry books in backpacks if we had to quality spend free time sometimes. (more…)

Multiple Computers

I am always using multiple computers, even on daily work operations

Quite often I am getting about my somewhat strange habit using two computer at the same time. It is nothing really special about it, to be hones, it is not show off, it is just matter of habit.

Let me put it like this. When I am doing something productive only few things are on my desk:

  • pen (fountain pen in 99% of time)
  • notebook (paper one, usually Moleskine or Rhodia)
  • coffee

Different Flavours

Tomorrow I am starting my fourth week as a freelancer. It is not easy. New technologies, new people, new approach. Completely new ecosystem than I used to have on my previous engagement.

It really has to be considered as absolute must. Oh yes, there is standards for absolutely everything, including computing environment. (more…)

Travelling (not so) Light

Quite often I have one day business trips. Sometimes that happens to be really stressful for, especially when travelling with lot of documentation and equipment. Partially as I sometimes uncertain if I get everything I supposed to have with me and sometimes I am just stressed because I know there will be troubles in case I have to figure out where I put what. You know, I usually get up to three different messenger bags. (more…)

Different Perspective (The Tin Drum)

In 2003 I bought apartment I live in. It was nice, warm and cosy. I still live there (furthermore, I bought another just next to first one, 10 years after). It came with beautiful yellow closet which was unbelievably huge. Inside I found a book. The Tin Drum by Günter Grass. As I always have to read something I just spend some time reading it. What triggered me the most is the fact that this particular piece of art is considered as one of most valuable books ever written. (more…)
