Macromedia: The Story.
View it here
Very nostalgic this presentation and very, indeed, interesting and educational.

Probando...Probando...1...2...3...me voy de vacaciones....ya os contare.

Today no updates, sorry
Today is a bit weird 'cause in the company I work for, is firing people and I don't have the mood to search for things. The only thing I want is to receive a phone call from Telefonica offering me the job I want. Perhaps I'll be lucky...

Corpses For Sale!
View it here
Incredible... get your own "corpse" personalized. The corpses are extremely realistic. The pictures do not show the actual realism as seeing it live. You could literally be standing one foot away and not really be sure if it was real or not (except for the lack of smell and the slim possibility of coming in contact with a real corpse). The skin is made from liquid latex so even touching it feels real.

It would occur in 2019, although the certains are large.

International Blog MEETUP!
MeetUp website
It's a local gathering of a group of people brought together by a common interest. Over coffee, over a beer maybe. MEETUPs are like book clubs, activist groups, shareholder meetings, user groups, fan clubs, car clubs, support groups, or study groups. Show off your dog, your car, or your handiwork. Maybe play a game or mobilize for a cause.
