Adobe Flex developer wanted - remote or onsite   01 Aug 08
[print link all ]
Either as free lancer or permanently employed we need a Flex guru or an advanced Flex developer that likes challenges.

We have several projects in New York and Munich.

A small international team in an agile setting is waiting for you developing applications that scale to millions of users.

As usual, we care about experience, communication skills and simply the desire to excel and not page-long CVs.

If interested, please email me at armin at personifi dot com. Please no Word docs, only .txt or pdf or put it all in a simple email.

Next time we ask for some GNU Flex developers .. :-)

Vimperator - gain back your time   20 Jun 08

Thanks to Brenden for passing me this link.

First there was a Navigator, then there was an Explorer. Later it was time for a Konqueror. Now it’s time for an Imperator, the VIMperator :)

Vimperator is a free browser add-on for Firefox, which makes it look and behave like the Vim text editor. It has similar key bindings, and you could call it a modal web browser, as key bindings differ according to which mode you are in.

Now I need vim bindings for openoffice, so that I stop typing :w.

Six Degrees of Wikipedia   28 May 08

Ever heard of the game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon? If you haven’t, it works like this: Every actor gets a Kevin Bacon number. Kevin Bacon has a Kevin Bacon number of 0, actors who were in a movie with Kevin Bacon get a Kevin Bacon number of 1, actors who were in a movie with someone who has a Kevin Bacon number 1 get a 2, and so on (Everybody always gets the smallest number possible, so if you were in a film with two people, one with a 4 and one with a 6, your Kevin Bacon number would be 5).

The same idea could apply to the articles Wikipedia. Instead of taking "in the same film" as the relation, you can take "is linked to by". We’ll call the "Kevin Bacon number" from one article to another the "distance" between them. It’s then possible to work out the "closeness" of an article in Wikipedia as its average distance to any other article. I wanted to find the centre of wikipedia, that is, the article that is closest to all other articles (has minimum closeness).
