- DjangoCon Europe 2010
DjangoCon returned for its second year in Europe; the first as a wholly community-supported conference. The conference website contains a lot of info and interesting links (even an iPhone app), but in my opinion the coolest thing is the freely available videos of the conference! >>>
- Il Fatto Quotidiano online is available
Il Fatto Quotidiano, practically the only newspaper in italy which is not subsidized by the state through the political parties, is now running online with a new and constantly improving website. Needless to say, it’s good news for the (poor) freedom of press in Italy. Here’re some international articles mentioning ‘il Fatto’ when it initially […]
- Aviary’ ROC: online free music sequencer

- The Rebirth of Rebirth!

Combine these with FX units, fully featured pattern sequencers and a quick-acting, scalable iPhone interface and you’ll soon be making techno on the train, trance on the tram or beats on the bus. Rebirth […]
- Back to iMovie HD …
Have you ever edited a movie using the new iMovie 7 or 8? Well I tried a couple of times, and it’s a dreadful experience. I’m not the only one who noticed it.. (actually probably among the last ones). This article from the NY Times is from 2007… Last week, Apple released a new version […]
