Beating the Meeting Run

Just one full week in my new job, that’s what it took me to experience a new kind of sport, the “Meeting Run”.
And as a good friend of mine would say, like everything there are always two sides.
In what I experienced I encountered a good one and a bad one (and no there’s no ugly one, at least not yet).

Making Your XOOM 2 Kid Safe

A couple of years ago I bought the Motorola Xoom 2 for my personal usage.
It was my first Android tablet and I mainly planned to use it to make Skype calls, browse the Internet and read some e-books. We also used it to play nursery rhyme videos to our last-born.
As he grew, he was convinced that it was “his” tablet and started to play games on it.
It didn’t take him long to figure out how to look for YouTube videos or to install new games, this is when troubles started.

Turn Your Laptop Into a Wireless Access Point

A year ago, while participating to an off-site workshop, a colleague wanted to show a new mobile application prototype.

For this purpose he needed a phone to reach both the internet and a laptop hooked to the local network.
Since wireless connection was not available the demo was at risk.

Invest in Metadata

Recently I had a discussion with a colleague about an effort he was making to classify our enterprise wiki content.
His prime motivation was the difficulty to track what was published, who publishes what and where different information are located. Thus he was investing in building a directory for the wiki, by providing categorized links to the pages of interest.
Seeing this, I couldn’t agree less.
