“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. The cliche goes from ancient Greeks to Shakespeare and then to Martin Amis in “London Fields“; the concept is used again and again. A couple of days ago many people noticed a small change on their browsers: Google has a new favicon. A favicon is a small image that is generally used to reflect the identity of a web site. You can find it on the address bar or on your browser’s tabs. A favicon must be catchy: the 16×16 pixels image must not only reflect the brand, but impulse your mouse to hover there.
One of the issues most discussed in the last ITS Rome conference was what is a reasonable use of broadband. The concern arise from heavy users activity, which in another example of Long Tail takes most of Telcos resources for downloading huge files.
De nuevo, este es otro tema en la “twilight zone” entre ámbito personal y profesional. Digámoslo de una vez: me enferman los emoticons en los chats y en los txt, sobre todo viniendo de gente grande.
Se me dirá: éste es otro de tus problemas de actitud. Yo asentiré levemente recordaré al lector que este blog está fuera del “established order“, ok?

A friend of mine, a professional in a international Telco, don´t get that some people like blogging for some other reason than pretending. In his own words –well, more or less- “blogging is either elitist or naive”. So I took the challenge of seek some truth out there, my absurd crusade of the day. Then I put the question in LinkedIn, in a very straightforward way, and received some 10+ answers in a couple of days. Social thing is the thing nowadays, so no surprisingly I got more feedback –in quantity and quality of answers- than in Change Management, Wireless Issues or StartUps.
