Genetic Architecture - by Urbanarbolismo

Thanks to Enrique Dans's blog i found Urbanarbolismo an amazing arquitecture website with its blog by Jordi Serramia. I'm sure if someday i build my own house you will be one of my principal contacts. Thanks Jordi i follow your blog also. Please, politicians and builders of everywhere in the world look this ideas, study it carefully and make moves on this directions.

Now i watch this new on the blog, from other architect Alberto Estevez the project called  genetic Barcelona, where they are working to aply genetic to architecture. I cut&paste what Urbanarbolismo mention :

"It goes long what i can imagine.

Several years ago we discover GFP protein, it's responsable of the light in several jellyfish. Alberto Estevez has been the architect who aply GFP protein in the architecture.

Phosphorescent lemon trees gleam in Barcelona. There isn't many words to say,  potential energy save?, easy way to produce it?  simple idea cost?. The pictures talk by itself. Forums looks opposite opinions about it. For me it's most important that this project it's not an utophy, it could be develop tomorrow and it means a radical change in architecture. Nevertheless i doubts any politic knows it apart of Barcelona one.

Last update : Alberto T. Estevez has inform to Urbanarbolismo: “… The project Genetic Barcelona is in the second phase, Fundació La Caixa (bank social foundation) and Generalitat (local region goverment) are the sponsor… we are trying to be efficiency in terms of light using several tree types, we are developing other ways and targets…  …we have the first laboratory of genetic architecture of the history, the fist in the world where genetics works for research goals made by an architect…”

At the end my favorite sentence :

"Who knows, soon trees will be the best way to light our cities in a economic way. Afterall, we'll have a reason to plant them."

My point of view, first it looks pretty nice, it's a cost save effective for sure, but if i have to think as an ecologist what does it means?. Well, it's a new sub-group of trees human made, what in theory it's not good, but in the other hand is less contamination, less visual impact and at the end more trees means more oxygen, more forest percentage. Imagine by a while if all the street lamps will be replaced by "light trees". It really means too many trees, two many oxygen, two many potential birds, insects, worms, etc (biodiversity in general). But it will be so nice, i mean, will the tree be as a regular tree for itself, other flora and fauna?. If so, i'm completely enthusiastic !!!.

Another thing to long your life, read new and cool things to imagine the future, even closer !!!

Enjoy !!!

Mobuzz ha cerrado

Mobuzz, one of the internet tv 2.0 project has closed at least for a while.

I hope they can close the agreements to go in on.

I love "La dosis diaria". At least we can watch recorded programs yet. Also in English at Daily Buzz.

Good luck !!!

Anyway you live intense, good regards. Feel better !!!

Cirque du Soleil

This tuesday my new and dense regards was "Cirque du Soleil" this year the show is called Varekai.

It's a fantastic show as usually Cirque du Soleil is, the most fantastic thing is remenber you as a child in the flash back, how you were waiting to go in in a mix of emotions and afraids.

In the show, there are amazing dresses and make ups, more even than ever. Makers & Dressers congratulations. There is a flash back to the original circus with more time for clowns. The music is in the same direction probably it's the reason you feel less compare with others. But the worst, there are less atractions year by year. Alegria (Video) is, in the chat after the show, the winner and the best.

Again, live longer feel better !!!

The time, how to manage it.

How win time to the time. That's the question.

How can i build a longer time?,  in fact how can i build my life longer?. Whatching my favorite philosophy science program "Redes2.0", in the program called "What is the time?" of Nov 24th of 2008. You can review (Spanish) in a fantastic on demand tv internet service.

David Eagleman "Neuroscientists. Texas Univ"& Eduardo are talking, in summary, if you feel dense emotions, your bring more regards. Later your brain believes it's longer because your regards are extremely dense.

That's the reason for example, you bring more regards on holidays, and you feel your days longer.

 Other experiment, you can do it at home, shows you how your brain feels to turn on a light. If you turn it on a lot of times at the beginning your brain feels bit time from the button switch on movement throw the light turn on. After few clicks it feels turn on the light at the same time. But at the end your brain feel the light turned on before even the button is switch on.

It means your brain feels less time in the repeatable acts.

Then two things to win time to the time :

1. Nothing repeatable in your life. Samples, drive home for a different way every day. Take coffee, lunch and dinner in a different place and of course eat different things. Don't shortest your time.

2. Make extra things every days. Build dense regards for your brain. Build longest time.

Live more time and feel it better !!!

(This is my new blog flavour)

After more than one year

--- Spanish version below ----

After more than one year in this experiment (my Sun's blog), and after i know what to have a blog is. I'm going to change the flavour of the blog a bite. 

From now i'm going to provide not just news, tech tricks, or so but also my thoughts, my ideas, and my point of view to each post i'll write. 

I'll try to provide not just the theory/logic/true but also the human/soul/philosophy of each post. I'm not going to convince anyone i just want to add value to discuss about it and not just re-write/said what others did.

---- English version above -----

Después de más de un año con este experimento (mi blog), y después de saber que es tener un blog. Voy a cambiar el estilo del blog un poco.

Desde ahora voy a proporcionar no sólo la noticia, o temás técnicos, etc sino que voy a escribir sobre mis pensamientos, ideas, y mis puntos de vista sobre las mismas en cada entrada que escriba.

Intentaré proporcionar no solo la teoria/logica/verdad del tema sino también la visión humana/el alma/la filosofia detrás de cada asunto. No voy a intentar convencer a nadie simplemento quiero aportar un valor añadido de discusión y no sólo reescribir o comentar lo que otros han escrito o dicho.

This week in Santiago de Compostela

 Esta semana, el miercoles, viajo a Santiago de Compostela por trabajo hasta el viernes. Pero no todo va a ser trabajo, siempre me acompañan mis zapatillas.

 Pues bien en otras ocasiones he corrido por la Universidad, y los diferentes campus ya que me encontraba alojado en el Melia Araguaney muy cerquita de lo viejo, pero esta vez no se que hotel me tocará. Y desde aqui os invito a que me propongais lugares para correr, bien porque los conozcais, bien porque querais quedar por la tarde o muy de mañana. Estoy algo tocado del tobillo derecho desde mi periplo por las 24h, asi que no me deis mucha caña.


Y sino el que quiera tomarse una cerveza también que me lo diga que estar sólo en una ciudad es muy aburrido.

Disfrutaré de una de mis ciudades preferidas, con un clima que a mi particularmente, que odio el calor y me gusta la lluvia y correr con ella, me encanta, con mucho sabor, excelente cocina y mucha marcha.

Visitarla sino la conoceis os la recomiendo !!!

Now, "All hands", software practice for me are starting......"see you in a while"


Second day

Second day was perfect for me.
Why? i didn't scheduled any session til lunch time and i was shopping again. But this time i didn't buy anything.
After that, lunch and several good session in the afternon, all of those about SOA.
HIAV and scalability, new release, secure SOA, etc. But i wasn't able to go at the same time to another good session about Portal
Colleages of me told me that sessions about Ruby and JavaFX was fantastic and Portal one too.
Moreover, tursday was the CEC party and that was good news.
Party was in the Palm, with a good atmosphere, ladys dancing on the pool, playing with ships and several mahines (bicycles really small). Anyway i invite to some drink to me college by my birthday =:-))

Then, some.... how to say..... interesting bars and clubs was our "entretaiment" in this city. (not gamblim, i don't know to play =:-))

End of first day

After an error with my laptop power cable, sorry, i'll try to summary first day.

Many conferences, and many topics, somo of them good and technical ones as "In deep" of PSD. In my case software. Joined the group of SOA.

You have to move from one location to other when some of them was too long, moreover you have go throu casinos, poker tables, etc

Grand Canyon at Las Vegas

One of the most exciting experinces you can do at Las Vegas is to take tour to Grand Canyon.
I booked one of them, and i spent yesterday at Grand canyon. It was fantastic, good weather, nice colleage of my and the Canyon.

Shutle picked up us at 6.20 (too earlie but it's best), some time after that we are flying into a small aircraf from somewhere airport in Las Vegas to a somewhere in the orizhonds. The sun rise in the front and the feeling of fly in a small pice of iron plus the air, emothion and exciting idea of the day was enough.

We are European and maybe it could be fine for the first day in States to take this tour at 8.00 a.m. No jet lack issues at all.

45 min later we landed at Grand, because it is really Grand. Our next exciting step was waiting for us. It was helicopter. It was simply fantastic, from you went up throu take off and land in an small stones circle near the colorado riber. (choice a window seat for helicopter is very recomended).
The first ime you take a helicopter, as it was for all of us, is fantastic, is very soft compare with aircraft and it's really as you fly like a fly. Moreover there is a huge fly down of thounsand of feets between the top of Grand and the riber.
Then, 20 min of boat trip around riber with a funny guy, and an indian tradition to put water in your fornt for a good luck. (could it be the next helicopter or aircraft trip? =:-))
After that new helicopter trip to went up again to the top.
An a new surprise, a simple bus trip of 10 min can be not so simple. The bus driver was fantastic, "Who remenber my name?" "My name is Francisco, i'm a single man" "Single Laydies don't forget it" and things like "Who lets the dog out" (anyone who was there understand me any others i don't want to say you more, you have to feeling yourselfs). This kind of things in a simple 10min bus trip make the bus driver win the first prize of this trip.
Then, some walk around the top near the BBQ before lunch and an small sky views in the top after the lunch.
After that 35 min aircraft trip trou Hoover Dam and a feeling of the end of a fantastic adventure.

If you book soon in the morning you have time to do what we did :

- Leave your bags at the hotel
- Take a taxi (18€) to "Premiun Outlet" at "Charlestone Blvd" and buy a lot everything you can =:-))
- Even if you have energy at us. You can take a taxi (8€) and go to "Fremont Street" for a real and storic (but also new) Las Vegas experince.
- I recomend you a good, quiet and realy good restaurant with a special sky view at "Steak House" at "Fermont St" in "Brions Hotel" (40€ each)
- Taki back (15 €)

I hope it could help you in Las Vegas.

First feeling at CEC 2007

First Day at CEC2007 : Hello, today October the 8th we are starting the conference at CEC 2007 This year in a new an excellent location at Las Vegas, NV where wishes and dreams could be reallity like kids at Disney World, this incredible city is, like a collegue of my said, a "wonderful park" for big boys. Around 3.000 engineers are joined to chat about their entire world (systems, storage, software and so). The first minutes were for a track of "Cirque du solei" with a fantastic and fashion introduction, at the moment standards general presentation speakers are talking about the strategy. Pros. More and more engineers every year that is good. More and more advantages every year that is good too. And a fantastic idea of eco-responsability that is really good too. Cons. No scheduled or CEC book plans available for the second registration day at all. It's available also at SWAN what is not the best. More and better in a while.

General discussion in English and/or Spanish mainly about life in a new feeling and SOA, JES components and Java in general in the software arena.
