Anderson.Paak dances with us in Berlin

Great concert in Lido with Herr Paak.

Only bad detail: The sound in LIDO. I know that in small shows is almost impossible to have a great acoustic. But I heard Robert Glasper in Festsaal Kreuzberg 2 years ago, and it was just awesome sound. Leaving out the differences, since Festsaal was 90% wood, and thus a great acoustic natural place this time the sound people at Lido did a poor job. Or just the sound system is not prepared for a show like this. Could hear his voice almost always in the background, without a different output channel and always mixed with the bass and the percussion.

Anyways a great performer with a cool band, great DJ and a highly recommendable show. Proud to be dancing with you Brandon!

Learning DOCKER #1

Docker ship with containers

Docker is an exciting technology since April 2013 when it started as open source project. But is only since last year or so that I started hearing more and more about it. And it’s mostly because some companies like Zalando (Berlin) , Spotify and Netflix started implementing it successfully in their servers.

The Docker Mantra is the following :

Build, Ship, Run

Any App, anywhere!

 

I’ve started trying in my Ubuntu 14 machine with this tutorial:

https://docs.docker.com/engine/userguide/dockerizing/

And what I will try to accomplish in the next entries after playing around with it, is to instance some basic WebServer dingie with some simple API, or just Apache+PHP 7+Symfony. Keep tuned!

Evolution of the Rotor project

The first prototye of the Flettner Rotor project is constructed with a modified Aluminium Byke structure (Not yet here since needs to be soldiered)

Materials list:

  • Engine Absima with speed control + Battery + Charger
    Forward, Brake and Reverse modus Engine_AbsimaRotor-AkkuAkku_lader
  • Engine Pulley *Riemenscheiberiemenscheiben
  • Industrial bearings *Flanschlager flanschlager5

This is the first sketch and 1:2 drawing

Rotor-drawing

The first material used to build the cilinder, that at the end is not at all a cilinder but a romboid structure.

Tippgeschwindigkeit Composer (Making it faster)

Nach letzes composer update, ich kriege immer diese Meldung nach update /install : “You are running composer with xdebug enabled. This has a major impact on performance and will break your balls”
So ich habe die richtige Lösung gefunden und wurde mit euch teilen:
$ php -i | xdebug

Guck mal welche config ist schuldig, in meine Ubuntu ist:
/etc/php5/cli/conf-d/20-xdebug.ini

Und einfach comment:
;zend_extension=xdebug.so

Voila! Deine composer is viel schneller ab jetzt. Für mich ist ungefähr 3x schneller.

New project: Portable Flettner-Rotor (Longboard)

flettner_longboard
3D model available on tridiv.com

The idea come while reading “Symmetry of Sailing” by Ross Garret. The german engineer Anton Flettner was the first to use this physical principle as propulsion engine for a ship in 1922.

The still difficult part and open points to discuss that I have in this Winter project are:

  • Material to use in the main structure. The goal is that is light, when possible less than 10 Kilos,  but resistant since it needs to provide lift.
  • Motor weight: 170 g  Speed controller: 230 g  . Cables + Battery: Aprox.  2 K. Making a total of 2.5 Kilos weight.
  • Still open to discuss: At what speed needs the cilinder to roll and what would be the ideal diameter to provide enough momentum to move 70 Kg in a Longboard (I thought about 40 cm diameter).
    The chain relation between the motor and the cilinder to have the right speed and force. Ex: 10 spin motor: 1 spin cilinder
  • And to end the question: What kind of lift will this generate on a 10 Knots wind, coming from the optimal point, let’s say 90 degrees left or right from the cilinder.

I think that it can be a great way to make branding campaigns and to get visibility for a new product or startup.

#Remarketing hack explained. How to use the social banners on your own benefit

I’m sure this happened to you too. After searching for something on the internet, banners showing exactly this product are following you on any other website you visit. And specially on Facebook!

Because you surf the web with Facebook open don’t you ?  Then you must be aware that on 90% of any website there is some kind of facebook plugin. That means facebook knows almost all the sites you visit.

Now why don’t to use this power for our own benefit ?

Follow this simple steps:

  1. Put an article for sale on eBay
  2. Visit amazon and search for the product you are selling
  3. Wait until amazon banners follow you in all social networks
  4. And make a comment in their advertising pointing to your own eBay cheaper sale
  5. Get amazon paid traffic for free in your own benefit

 

Positive Groove playlist 1

At the start of this year I got tired of Spotify advertising and I got a premium account. So I started making public playlists and sharing with the friends at work and posting it sometimes the new editions in Facebook and Twitter.  This generated some good feedback so I though about sharing some of them here too.

The idea is to make list with fresh groovy music. Positive, vibrant, soulful and sexy.

Here are some of my favorites:

pg_bamboos“The Wilhelm scream” fromThe Bamboos opens the playlist. They have proven that they are more than meets the eye; over five acclaimed albums, their evolution in sound and style has consistently confounded and exceeded expectations.

“Nothing prepared me for just how fresh and vibrant the music of The Bamboos is” – Notion Magazine (U.K)

pg_metropolitan_jazzMetropolitan Jazz Affair is France based Jazz band  featuring Mr Day, Rongetz, Benjamin Devigne, Patchworks. They have really awesome tunes, if you like nu-jazz check them out.

wolf_myer Wolf is the head of Myer Orchestra, coming from Linz, he worked as manager for companies like Sony Music Austria and played more than 500 live shows as a session drummer in the last six years.

pg_roberto_fonsecaRoberto Fonseca was born in La Havana. Pianist, composer, arreglista and professor of piano’s inclination to music begun at age four with his interest in percussion instruments.
In this playlist we feature “El soñador esta cansado” an awesome track with a heart-taking piano performance.
