'I really love it, thank you!' These are the actual words that came out of my mouth when someone handed me a broom as Christmas gift, a few years ago: surely I would have used the same words in case I would have received, let's say, an empty CD or a jar of expired peanut butter. If my reaction doesn't sound so absurd to you, chances are you -like me and so many others- are in the 'White Club': the less exclusive club in the world. PAID ADVERTISEMENT: Here at the White Club, we emphasize the fact that we say lies in order to save humanity. That's why we don't say lies but "White Lies", even if that name might create confusion: we indeed do not mean "Pure BS" but instead "Harmless Smarts". I have been told it is an important difference to make. Being smart by definition, we apply our ancient techniques to our modern day society, so that everyone can harness all the benefits, known for millenniums: we do all of it just for the love we have for others. Yes, we are heroes and our words are the light in the darkness, the power of wisdom against the forces of evil... or something like that: each member has its own personal view because we are also an open and equal opportunity entity. We make it ultra easy for anyone of any culture and race to join. It sounds neat, I know, but it is mostly marketing hype. Truth is, there are plenty of clubs of this sort and each one has its own strong logic. For instance: - The Black Club, which underlines the importance to put all your potential in what you do; - The Red & Blue Club, standing at the heart of our decision making process, its philosophy precisely describes the amazing dance-like steps that so many beloved politicians use in their vital day-to-day operations; - The Big Club which, as the name suggests, is followed by the smarter ones among the smart ones: the most exclusive of the bunch and an evergreen for heads of states, presidents and VIPs. Whichever you have chosen, one thing is clear: we all do it for the Greater Good. Never give up. Certainly you won't mind the 'broom for gift' anecdote never actually happened: it is raining outside but we might truly find the rainbow at the end of the storm.

‘I really love it, thank you!’ These are the actual words that came out of my mouth when someone handed me a broom as Christmas gift, a few years ago: surely I would have used the same words in case I would have received, let’s say, an empty CD or a jar of expired peanutcontinue…

The Waterfall Chart

How do you know if you’ve become a statistics fanboy? Yes, it’s a vested-interest question: apologies if you were looking for a vested-interest answer. I mean, I know I could list some absurd stats which both you AND I compulsively have to check while watching sports or on election day (which seem more and morecontinue…

The facts revolution

I just released the first version of Visual Chap. Here’s the punchline, find my comments below. Visual Chap is a WordPress Plugin which treats your readers by providing a unique experience  for your content. A quick, animated, graphical, Wikipedia-powered search for everything you write… or just specific words. It truly is a time in whichcontinue…

Squealing Drake

I don’t especially like extra-terrestrials: let me start here. I believe they are way over-rated and it’s quite surprising seeing so many people, which usually dislike even a mere contact with their foreigner neighbors, saying so many great things about them. Hollywood certainly didn’t help improve my general impressions by usually depicting aliens as uglycontinue…

Theme Checked!

It looks like Handcraft Expo (my WordPress theme) scored big! The check is based on the official Theme Check plugin by the WordPress Theme Review Team. Thanks to the cool guys at ThemeCheck for running their tests.

Distributed Wisdom

I recently posted how happy I feel about my first WordPress theme being approved in the official directories: here’s my story about the reviewing process behind that. My background? I had several previous experiences with WordPress and other CMS software but this was the first time I decided to write an actual package, publicly available,continue…

Handcraft Happiness

So my first WordPress theme has been approved, which of course makes me very happy. I just wonder if people around me can really understand WHY. It goes without saying, I’m talking about people who can actually understand what I write: as you know, for all the others we are just people that ‘play withcontinue…

Created a new WordPress theme…

If you need a new website or if you want to revamp the one you already have, you can try my new WordPress theme ‘Handcraft Expo‘: this site uses it, it’s free software under the great copyleft GNU GPL v.3 license and hopefully soon available on WP’s official repository.
