Avatar Life

Video makes fun of the difficulty of movement from avatars in the Second Life.

This is an old problem, I’ve seen something similar with GTA game.

Showing your last “twit” using php

While editing my blog theme, I decided to add my last thoughts in twitter to the website. Came with a very simple php code that will get the information from the last twitter post and show it as a text line, so you can add in anywhere you want.

This is the code:

< ?php
preg_match('#(.*)#',file_get_contents('http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/username.xml?count=1'), $matches);
echo $matches[0]
?>

Of course, remember to change username for your own.

The perfect Remote Control

Man are simple, know what they want, go direct to the point… this is our nature!
Thinking about that, and studying out basic needs, famous researchers and Apple developed the perfect remote control for men. It’s universal and works almost the same way as the remote from the movie “Click”…

(women, don’t get mad, it’s just a joke)

BarCamp Floripa 2.0

Two weekends ago was kinda different from other weekends, I finally went to a BarCamp, after hearing so much about it on the web. It’s the second time that there is a BarCamp in my town, unfortunately I couldn’t attend to the first one, so I couldn’t miss this one. Two days (19/20 of May), a amazing opportunity to meet new minds, exchange ideas and have a great time talking about web related things, culture and art. The conversations was hold for exchanging knowledge about mostly in the web + education area, talking about copyright issues on the web (DRM), Web 2.0, Second Life, OpenSource, Blogs…There were a great presentation about the OLPC (One Laptop Per Children) project, where everyone could play with that little green thing.
