One thing at a time

I've been trying to write a long post with a recap of several interesting things I am working on at the moment... but I've been so busy at them that I am struggling to find time to put the pen to the paper...
So here I am, killing time while my wife does some shopping, and deciding that a series of short posts are better than the one and only recap.
This time I will refer to the mobile technology. Did I mention that I am sitting in a shop? This is in fact my first post using Blogger, a free app for my android. Sweet!
Now that around 80 people in the office are using the same phone model I have, we have been exchanging tips and recommendations... and occasional frustration when it 'goes pear shape' (very English expression I learnt only recently).
This reminds me a funny tv program I saw a while ago... (am I pushing the app beyond its capabilities? Will find out soon)

Yesterday I saw the swype text input on a HTC phone, apparently it's now available as a beta version.
Ok, here's my wife walking out of the shop. See you next stop.

My reading list
Mathematic explorations

Back on the saddle after a long silence, this time bringing a list of books that have kept me busy... is this a good excuse for not writing blog entries???

With a deadline for this afternoon I cannot spend a lot of time describing each book... yet I want to push myself to communicate some of the mind-opening good reads I came across recently. Most are not new books, and probably you will recognise them.

Without further introduction, here's a list of books about maths, with a twist:

Godel, Escher, Bach: and eternal golden braid by D. Hofstadter

The_Emperor's New Mind by Roger Penrose

In Pursuit of the Unknown: 17 Equations That Changed the World by Ian Stewart

Introducing Chaos, a graphic guide

Art and Physics by Leonard Shlain

Things to Make and Do in the Fourth Dimension by Matt Parker

So, these are some of my current and past reads. Have you read them? Any recommendations down these lines?


In future entries I will explore books about design and programming, creative code, artific…

To BIM or not to BIM...
When BIM is not the answer

Is Building Information Modelling the catalyst of improvement in all things Architecture, Engineering and Construction? Is "BIM" the Midas touch for all innovation projects?
This article explores the boundary conditions of BIM and suggests reasons for resisting its adoption. A new look to an old discussion.
Introduction I am a confessed BIM enthusiast. Early adopter or visionary, I embraced the technology as soon as I was exposed to it, approximately 10 years ago, and have been trying to convince anyone willing to listen about its benefits. Now, a decade into my struggle to make a better world through BIM, I would like to step back and ask myself if there are good reasons why other people have not jumped at BIM with the same conviction...
My logic is structured around the three letters of the acronym, hoping to identify the boundaries in these three dimensions.
Boundary 1: Building Is Buildings the only target of BIM? "We don't do Buildings, we do roads" a High…
