  • Not having a direction is OK, and you should feel OK

    When I was younger (there I said it) I remember being quite unhappy about myself. Unsatisfied. It was a white noise that I’d try to cover with menial activities. A rock band. Eating a lot. Some beers (not too many honestly). Football. Smoking. World of Warcraft. Reading. As most people of any age, I would…

  • It’s been a long time (since I rock n rolled)

    Also, it’s been a long time since I spoke at an SEO event! Last time I got the opportunity to show how much I love what I do by talking about SEO in front of strangers, I did it in Italian. A lifetime ago. Apparently someone didn’t know any better than inviting me to talk…

  • Is Kobe the right person to give you life lessons?

    A couple of days ago, former-basketball star (but not only) Kobe Bryant died tragically in a heli crash. I’m not a fan of that sport, nor do I have any particular reason to remember Bryant fondly, except for the fact that he spoke an amazingly good Italian (he lived in the country during his childhood).…

  • Getting used to happiness

    There is one thing in my mind that I want to share today, and it’s got nothing to do with digital. It’s got to do with happiness, so I thought it might be worth sharing it because finding unhappy or angry people is as easy as just looking around me on the train to work.…

  • Sites that should be secure, but are not

    FYI, it’s 2020 (twentytwenty). These are some websites with no HTTPS, as of today. Why? Dunno. Madlads!? Senility!? Apache.org seriously? smh ansa.it, the number one Italian news outlet Shopify (myshopify.com) oh come on you guys!! MIT (web.mit.edu) something to do with old age I guess? Italia.it is the OFFICIAL Italian Tourism Website (I mean, it’s…

  • (one of the many many possible) Recoils of spamming low quality

    LinkedIn is the only Social Network that I actively use. I like it: I like it because its quality is relatively high, or at least better than the rest of the lot. One would expect some kind of professionalism on content shared there (yeah I know, I’m an incurable romantic). One recent drop in style…

  • Hi, my name is Enrico and I’m a musicaholic

    Hi, my name is Enrico and I’m a musicaholic

    This year I didn’t beat my 2018 record (damn JOB! 😀 ). Still, I got to listen to some good new stuff. OK so this is something I’ve been wanting to say for ages: Thank You Spotify everyone, yrstruly included There I said it, put me on r/hailcorporate idc. There, get your link too, Spotify.…

  • We tend to use the same service, regardless of quality

    or Why we continue to use Google (and Facebook), and why we will (not) stop I recently had an interesting discussion with some of my dearest friends (damn nerdz <3). It all started with the (absolutely irrelevant for an English speaker) news of the launch of a brand new translation of one of the greatest…

  • Oh BERT, BERT, wherefore art thou, BERT?

    Oh BERT, BERT, wherefore art thou, BERT?

    Just leave the two poor pigeons alone will ya!?

  • Sentry
