7 months as a Ghost

Back in October of last year, Ghost was released to the public. I read a lot about this “WordPress killer”, and decided to give it a try. It is Just a Blogging Platform, so that’s exactly what I need for this site. After 7 months, I’m back on WordPress and I’d like the share my experiences with you.

Customize the list of modules available in Jetpack

Jeffro published an interesting post on WPTavern yesterday: 15+ Plugins To Get Jetpack Functionality Without Using Jetpack.

Knowing me, you won’t be surprised that I immediately started thinking of a few alternatives. :) So here it comes, 3 other ways to customize the list of Jetpack modules, if you cannot use or aren’t interested in everything Jetpack has to offer.

Danny MacAskill’s Imaginate

He’s done it again.

You have probably seen one of his videos in the past; Danny is a phenomenon on Youtube since 2009. His tricks are good, but the movies are usually so well edited that it makes it interesting to watch, even if you’re not a big fan of trials. I want to go back to riding every time I watch one of his videos! I also discovered really interesting bands, as the music is an important part of each clip.

His last project was actually a series of 5 episodes, going from a back injury to being back on the bike. You can check the complete Imaginate series here. He did an AMA on Reddit a few days ago, to talk about the series.

If you’re interested, here are his other videos, along with a link to the soundtracks, because I know you’ll want to know more about each band :)

More videos!

Molly Millions, Neuromancer

I am a big fan of William Gibson: I like his books*, and the Cyberpunk World he created, where humans can be “upgraded” and can get better through technology.

I have always been attracted by new technologies, and ways to improve our every-day life. As a fan of science-fiction, and with a Biology background, I guess it’s normal for me to consider new technologies when thinking about the evolution of humans.

But until a few months ago, this was only science-fiction. Yes, I’d be one of the first to volunteer to get an implant behind my ear, or “implanted” glasses connected to Internet and to my brain. But the closest thing from this was Augmented reality. And I must say I wasn’t really convinced. I tried a few apps when AR started appearing in our smartphones, but nothing blew my mind like Google Glass and Myo.

My .gitconfig file

I recently updated to Mountain Lion, and had to install a few more things to get Git to work properly.

I also realized that Git GUI stopped working. A quick addition to my .gitconfig file did the trick, but I thought I’d take the opportunity to share my .gitconfig file with you; it could be useful to someone, and I will be able to come back to that post next time I change my computer :)

That’s it. If you have any advices or remarks, let me know! I am always looking for more tips!
