V publikaciji, nastali po okrogli mizi o internetu in prihodnosti demokracije v Ljubljani, je izšel tudi moj esej o dvojni funkciji nastopa osebe (samoreprezentacije) na družbenih omrežjih. Spletna omrežja spodbujajo hiper-mediatizacijo vsakdanjega življenja in poplavljanje spletnih omrežij z osebnimi pripovedmi; hkrati pa participacija v spletnih omrežjih uporabniku daje dostop do “orodij” za družbeni oziroma politični angažma. Zvezek “Politika 2.0: Internet in prihodnost demokracije” je v slovenščini in nemščini uredil Kristian Donko, izdajo sta konec lanskega leta podprla Filozofska fakulteta in Goethe Institut v Ljubljani.
Love Revival #railsgirlslj
On Friday started first edition of Rails Girls Ljubljana, a workshop about Ruby on Rails. After Friday’s installation party, on Saturday started the real fun. Checking on css, html and “the real code” again, reminded me, what was the most exciting and fun part of my job in the web industry – playing in the lines, playing with the code!
Brigita Jergović Jurić – Gitica, rojena Verčkovnik (1936), je ena od prvih Jugoslovank, ki so sedle za računalnike. Profesorico so gimnazijci speljali na kriva pota, tako da je v 70-ih matematiko zamenjala za računalnike. Malo je programirala, največ in najraje pa je izobraževala uporabnike poslovnih, knjigovodskih in turističnih CRM-aplikacij. V tednu, ko bi rojstni dan praznovala Ada Lovelace, znana kot prva programerka, in v času, ko se rojeva ljubljanska skupnost Rails Girls, objavljam delčke intervjuja, ki sva ga z Gitico posneli na družinskem srečanju februarja letos v Mariboru.
Sailing in The NYC
We were sailing with the Schooner America 2.0 last Thursday. Schooner America 2.0 is remake of the boat, that won first America’s Cup trophy back in 1851. She seems to be the pride of Manhattan sailing fleet – 105 feet and 3600 square feet of sail!
My Private TV-Show
With 31 I was ripe enough to visit the NYC. It happened after some months of my life, where change and work were one of the seldom constants of my living. The stressy’n’messy (but also awesome!) period ended with an ugly cold, that has been upgraded to bronchitis as soon as we landed in the USA: Sunday’s sprints at the Boston airport to catch connecting flight to the JFK airport and then Monday’s rushing through Manhattan subway stations haven’t done any good to me.
Lying in bed at noon on Sunday confirms more than successful planning of this saturdaying. What is saturdaying? Slovenian word for it would be sobotkanje and my suggestion for German dictionaries is Samstagern (in Switzerland there is a village with this hip name). This very special weekend mode can include as many of your favourite activities as you like it or it can consist of 100-percent of doing nothing. Anything and everything, as long as you are enjoying yourself without having a second thought on your general life-work concerns.
Po sonce na kraški rob
Od primorske vasice Zazid na vrh 804 m visokega Lipnika nad kraškim robom sva si zmerno do pretežno bolna včeraj prisončila sprehod. Hribček ni niti visok niti strm in zato ravno pravšnji za počasi hodeče bolne dušce.
East of Eden
East of Eden, title of Steinbeck’s well-known novel describes well, how does it feel to be in the Turkey’s far east, on the border with Armenia, Iran, Iraq and Syria.
Weekend was long, since I was under writing pressure. But despite all stressy and messy thoughts, I managed to finish my text around noon today and the whole Sunday afternoon was there waiting for me. Since I didn’t feel very well, the first and the most important thing on the todo list was running.
This Is Not a Love Post
I don’t love the busy and smelly tourist city of Venice, although I like its exhibitions, little lonely streets and canals in late summer afternoons. Strolling in parks away from the crowded San Marco, watching the blue skies and yellow houses, while holding his hand, made Venice more than bearable. The rationalizing goal of visiting international art exhibition suddenly turned into überkitschig movie scenery. <3
