Unretouched body

Recently I have been doing some backstage work for the team at BlogramaFM.

They choice Dreamhost Inc. as their trusted company to provide the hosting for its brilliant inititive.

BlogramaFM is, as amost start-ups are, in its inception. Their next step into the digital arena will be to reach the goal to to monetize ( via selected subscribers or ads ) the journalism they are offering, spreading and printing in the app.

To print is still a verb ( an action ) we use in deployment or/and development. An archaism.

The service behind the app deployed is provided by Dreamhost, a service dreamed up in Los Angeles, that works like a charm. The system , for the purpose to identify youas a client, uses a recognizing method less than excellent. See the image below.  It appears the form field and the gravatar associated to one, or two, email accounts. Thus, we can see that the corresponding gravatar appears linked email profile that we introduce in the form field.

This action provides trust in me as a user, because of I see and perceive myself recognized and identified. No fingerprints. After I introduce my email, I clearly can recognize the logo that identifies me -- in this given example -- like an afficionado in this field. No doubt the system is talking to me, as a persona, which is a pretty good thing in business.

That's all.

In a forthcoming post, you will have more data, about how and why this service provider was choose. Having never used them before; it  did impress me a lot, the focus and efforts put on security and care for the customer by this company. This will be explained in second chapter, whenever it will, of what is named as case study.

Superfloppy

That was then, and was funny.
Hypermedia may be developed a number of ways.
Any programming tool can be used to write programs that link data from internal variables and nodes for external data files.
Multimedia development software such as Adobe Flash, Adobe Director, Macromedia Authorware, and MatchWare Mediator may be used to create stand-alone hypermedia applications, with emphasis on entertainment content.
Some database software such as Visual FoxPro and FileMaker Developer may be used to develop stand-alone hypermedia applications, with emphasis on educational and business content management.

Yes, might I miss the floppy disks, and also the black cats on the ceiling roof. But to have and to hold a SCSI Zip drive is priceless. Superfloppy.

Talks featured in the Deep Wild Web. A selfie.

Years ago, nearly a decade ago ore more, the web and its standards were in its inception.

Or don't. Some of we -- my apologies for being as pedant as to include me (this yours truly ) in the Hall of the Voices Fame -- then so called freaks, or tender lovers, of the web standards practitioners, or the pinned semi-leaders for that Web 2.0 generation, were quite active with and into an Internet way of communication named mailing-lists. Call it, simply, "the list".

.
  • Mumblings on the CSS language, as featured in a spaniard subscription list, circa 2006
  • Thinking of that new branded and then unknown gadget namedIPhone, circa 2007.
  • A list of future librarians and experts in the pre-history, circa 2004.
  • CSS language doubts found at Google Groups, circa 2006.
  • Apple Macintosh and its enormous deb to the Xerox Park, circa 2004.
  • The state of inspiration and design of the web, circa 2006
  • .Firefox, Opera and Omniweb, circa 2005
  • Bug in KDE’s Safari, a popular OS Browser that conforms to your Iphone experience, circa 2009.
  • A bitter analysis on spaniard newspapers, circa 2006.
  • Accesibility and Javascript circa 2005.
  • Usability, an introduction, circa 2003.
  • Still that old black magic, avoiding Iframes using PHP, circa 2006.
  • The Web 2.0 is a trademar, circa 2006

  • Mailing lists preceded web forums and can provide similar functionalities. When used in that fashion, mailing list are known as discussion lists or discussion forums.
    Mailing lists preceded, too, what we know today as the social networks, ( i.e.: think of Mailchimp, to mention a social mailing list ).

    Networked communication was through the use of hypermedia, newsgroups in the Internets, places where those announcement lists could be seen like an analogy to our corporate daily activity stream news or personal wall.

    An imitation of your physical life, because then you know mailing and public communications were traditionally done through the postal system.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, Delfi Ramirez is floating in the space


    Let's imagine a society with another form of digital communication. This was then. Build upon the shoulder of our preceding giants. The Internet was, in the beginning of our century, still a field reserved to pioneers who really understood the potential of the medium, aside of its technological basis.

    Yes, unnecessitious was a part of the medium, too.

    We, subscribers and creators in those lists, were know as followers, without a leader. In this scenario, we call the leader, moderator. No likes, just dones. We are the mods.

    One observation: These links I present to you here in this post, contain information and data.

    They were arbitrated on what we know today as UX/UI, on the need of the use of web standards considered as a fine art, on communication in the field of technology, or on human relationships that were located inside the business ecosphere. Other subjects of attention can be mentioned too. Virtual spaces and virtual cities.

    Most of this public talks were preceding, were also the foundation, of what we know today as the Web 2.0: The slow process taking in the web to make subtly disappear the promoter admin figure.

    Couple of  those links and threads belong to the castillian-speaking audience. Yes, there is always a good reason to learn or practice a new language. The web was that reason.

    You might find in these links (URIs) a sort of conversations and mumblings.

    Some of these conversations were, far away from its needs, about the wired net. No references to protocols, no references to chips neither to storage, no mention either to any aspect of the web as a computational tool. No mention to technical publications. Not in a direct manner, indeed.

    A mailing list is simply a list of e-mail addresses of people that are interested in the same subject, are members of the same work group, or who are taking class together.

    You may face that this primitive form of publishing is not really far away from the tools we know and we use now to publish: Emoticons, attached files, polls, other features, et al. They represent the pleasure to talk and the need to communicate and to collaborate between us, human beings.

    The most important feature of these links, these old data, is that you -- dearest reader --  have still disposable and accessible now through the use of our modern devices  this golden jewels. That was why the web was invented for, isn't that?

    A final consideration: You might want to take all  the information contained within, as a useful resource, or as an example of impersonal improvement. Think of them as a credential letter. Opened to the stream.

    No sockpuppets. Good for you. Not even a selfie, self-promoter, besides the irony hidden in the title of this post.

    Quite normal. In the year 2014, the self-ism was finally conceived as a not-really-good-thing to do.

    Reassuming Work: A Theme

    Rotulos Sagarra SA - copyright Segonquart Studio 2013
    Rotulos Sagarra SA - Segonquart Studio 2013

    Rotulos Sagarra SA is a century-old company, based in BCN.
    They are dedicated to signage, monoliths, ceilings, and corporate signage elements.

    In the year 2013, this centenary company relied on the expertise of Segonquart Studio, and this yours truly, and put their trust in us; for their digital marketing strategy, art direction, advice and consultancy, for their presence in the web, and their commerce in the digital world. The project, the approach and solution I offered, was finished in 2014 and this year 2015 has its renewal. What means that it works.

    The app was conceived, drawed and crafted by hand; and published as a unique theme to be used inside that fabulous content management system named Wordpress CMS.

    Done as an exercise of coding. n innovate model of navigation that follows the present standards. Some cracking ideas were left in the boxes. Because for the needs of this company, Wordpress offers a clear, intuitive and strong back-end management system for those team-officers who will manage the enterprise app.

    An app for the desktop and the tablet surfaces.

    Mobile version is slightly different. Have a look.
