Finally my two-week holiday period for this year
has arrived. Unfortunately my next two weeks off
holiday will have to be foreshortened to one week
because of professional duties (not only the Lisbon
elections coming up but also the portuguese EU
presidency). Oh well, I’ll have to use some of the
remaining days to go to Campus Party Portugal; damn..

So for the next 7 or 8 days there’ll be no posts
from me. I’m prohibited to go anywhere near any
piece of electronic equipment by both my wife and
the personnel (house rules) at Vila Lara.,-8.38142&spn=0.005904,0.007178&z=17

I’ll be either the small private beach, in front of the
big rock, or at the biggest of the 3 pools, top center.
Highly recommended place when you want to compress two
weeks rest into 7 days…

I am taking with me the usual load of Amazon ordered books,
which this time was:

“Crossing the Chasm”, Geoffrey Moore
“The Long Tail”, Chris Anderson
“Sceptical Essays”, Bertrand Russel
“Como Se Levanta Um Estado”, Oliveira Salazar
“Fooled by Randomness”, Nassim Taleb
“Hunters of Dune”, Brian Herbert
“Democratizing Innovation”, Von Hippel
“The Innovators Solution”, Clayton Christensen
“The Venture Capital Handbook”, Grave Hay & Peeters
“The Game Producer’s Handbook”, Dan Irish

Since the first two have already been read in this
past two weeks, its 8 books for 8 days; should be

— MV

PS – Meanwhile I had the time to get the 3rd issue of
*.pt out. Its at as usual.
Still no post on the future of web development and
why both 3-tier and MVC should be considered harmful,
but in wont surely be this week…
