Italy explained to non italians

That’s one way to explain Italy to non italians, at least from a working perspective. Let me start with this story here: Treehouse hits the Deadpool; founder off to Google. Treehouse was a Mobile Photo Sharing startup. Chrys Bader, the founder, says: “We were indeed the first to really identify the market for mobile photo sharing. It all started when we asked the question “What if you could see your friends’ camera rolls? ... Read more

Pizza at Port Townsend, Washington, USA

This Sunday I rented a car and went around Seattle with Lisa. We went to Snoqualmie Falls (East of Seattle), and then to Port Townsend, North East of Seattle. It was a fun ride. We also enjoyed a great pizza at the Waterfront pizza. Here I am :) (Lisa thinks I’m ugly in this photo; I don’t care if I look ugly, as long as you like me anyway).

Eat, pray... Clinic!

Ok, let me have fun for a minute. I’ve taken the picture below at Changi Airport, the main Airport in Singapore. I thought it was funny to have these signs together. I couldn’t resist to imagine this guy that: - Has a huge meal at the Airport; - Feels the urgency to visit a restroom for some “serious” output; - However, his meal so unhealthy and so abundant, that he can’t “output” anything; - Ok, he goes to the prayer room, and asks God to help him. ...

Why airports suck

What’s the best way to understand something apparently obscure? Easy: look at how that business, that institution, that group of people or that individual thrives. How it makes money. How it survives. From this, you can understand almost everything else. Let’s take a look at airports: most people would agree that airports suck, big time.
