Backups: Don’t wait until it’s too late

By |January 8th, 2013|

Nowadays, we all store our information on computers. We store our documents, spreadsheets, presentations, photos, videos, and even music on them. Have you noticed every time you buy a new computer it comes with more hard drive space? At first you think: “great! More space to hold all of my data!” – but wait!- What happens if that computer suddenly fails?

Password Managers

By |December 11th, 2012|

Are you having a hard time keeping track of them?

Password management is becoming harder every day. We have many different accounts (webmail, banks, online stores, etc) each with their own definition of what a “strong” password should be [think: special characters] and to top it off they keep asking us to change it regularly.

All these security measures have a purpose: simple passwords are easily guessed, and if you use the same one for all the accounts an attacker only needs to figure out one. There are a few flaws with using awkward passwords: either people soon forget them or they write them down in a publicly visible locations [think: stickies on monitor].

Thankfully, there are applications called “Password Wallets” or “Password Managers” that can help us be secure while giving our mind a break. You can store hundreds of passwords in these applications including their respective usernames, URLs, or any additional information you might need. The beauty of this is that all the information is encrypted (not readable) unless you enter a “Master” password, without which the data is useless.

Texting Does Not Replace Face to Face

By |December 21st, 2011|

We are able to perceive others’ emotions by the subtle changes in facial expressions, body movements, and tone that occur in millisecond intervals. This innate ability has been with us from the day we were born, but – as we engage more and more in text based communication – we slowly lose this power of understanding each other.

People often ask me why I call them to continue an otherwise short conversation or why I ‘observe’ their face while we speak in person and the answer is quite simple: Because I can.

Virtual communication (texting, e-mail, chats, etc) provides us with an excellent way to ‘talk’ to each other without having the typical requirements of dedicated time allocation for each party and the opportunity of an asynchronous (not realtime) response. This is very helpful when in meetings, at work, school or any other activity that is taking up our time and cannot be interrupted for more than a few brief moments. That being said, I disagree with the use of text-based communication at those times when we are able to use our voices to comunicate and even more so, when we can see each other face to face.

Do what you want

By |August 3rd, 2010|

Don’t base your actions on old conceptions of life and society.

Do whatever life inspires you to do.

When told it will be difficult, obtain more information and gather others’ opinions.

When told it is impossible, make it possible.

Listen to experience

By |August 3rd, 2010|

When receiving information from someone respected in a specific field, listen thoroughly and completely before discrediting their opinion. Make your choices afterwards – when informed.
