There is so much fucking NOPE on the internet today. From Woody Allen apologists, to assholes seriously lacking in compassion for addicts — I’m taking the rest of the day offline. Shut down my laptop and turn off my phone as self-care.

Dopo l’esperienza positiva dello scorso anno abbiamo deciso che anche quest’anno Cagliari avrà il suo Open Data Day, aderendo alla giornata mondiale il 22 Febbraio 2014. In contemporanea con tutto il mondo, sarà una giornata per sensibilizzare, mostrare, fare, scoprire, creare, confrontarsi sulla cultura degli open data.

Presto vi forniremo dettagli sul luogo dell’evento, orari e programma.

Stay data tuned! :)

Last weeks have been really frustrating. I had the chance to work with people that are new to the design working, thing that doesn’t bother me and is fine BUT I also met people that doesn’t have the damn clue to what design in groups means and pretend to teach others and gives commands. Like if you don’t know ho to to please shut up and get the chance to learn how to from people that know better.

It’s been an absolute mess and it also didn’t improve my experience but for two things that I’ve notice. The hardest part for everyone I’ve seen is to learn to work in groups, that is hard, complex, and if you are not inclined by nature you have to learn. I wasn’t inclined  when I start and in 4 years at the university, working on design, I learned the basis.

Second one, but equally important is the you REALLY, without any “but” , you have to LISTEN, like there’s no chance to skip this part when you are doing a project for others. And when I say listen I mean the real meaning, shut up and listen the words including to not interrupt people and let them finish what are saying. 

If you don’t wanna listen, you can choose others works, works where you can just express yourself like artist, mechanicals, magicians, people at the post office.There’s a plenty of chance to do for you but please, please don’t lose your time in works like ux-interaction design they are based  on to listen and observe other people because you are not designing for you but for others! I know it sounds so basic but I’ve met too much people that totally ignore this rule. 

I made this to remember, you can print it out too :)
