C’era una volta un pappagallo, dalle piume rosse e blu, che non sapeva volare. Conosciuta come Guacamayo, questa specie rara di pappagalli si trova solamente in aree remote della Foresta Amazzonica. Il guacamayo si distingue dagli altri pappagalli per il suo sguardo particolarmente vispo e le sue espressioni simpatiche, talvolta buffe.
Incapace di volare, Il Guacamayo aveva vissuto per la maggior parte della sua vita in una grotta. Passava le sue giornate osservando con un misto di rancore e tristezza gli altri animali volare felici in cielo.
This is a continuation of a previous post, “The lie of the monthly salary - Praise of Uncertainty, Part 1”, that ended in the following way:
Taking the time to think and reflect is definitely not appreciated by the mass and by a society that wants “everything right now”. Avoiding emptiness and uncertainty makes us feel apparently more efficient, more productive and more stable.
In this second part I express my ideas in favor of human thinking in contrast to the recent race for human productivity and chasing of happiness, which I consider a best seller for candidate robot-beings.
“You are thinking too much!” — This is what I have been told since I remember something about myself. For years I have been trying to understand what was wrong with “thinking too much”, and what “too much” means.
Then in 2016 I quit my full time job: I was bored.
How could I be bored, working for a prestigious company, dealing with cool projects, with great and inspiring colleagues in Copenhagen, one of the smartest cities in the world?
I actually had an answer to that question:
“I am bored of sitting down at the office every…

The air smells different today, it smells some kind of familiar. We have been sailing for 20 days through 3,800 nautical miles of blue, without seeing land nor other human being besides the eight of us. Only 500 hours of disconnection, yet I wonder if we are still the same humans we were before leaving land.
Suddenly someone screams “Land!!” like in the best stories of pirates and explorers.
We all get outside with an instinctive fury to see land. Only now, I understand why the air smells so different: it smells of land. …

Can a community be more valuable than money?
Besides its customers pool, an engaged community can definitely give some extra benefits. For example, a community of passionate developers can create great open source software, for free. Moreover, having all your users interacting in place only, can facilitate social listening, leading to valuable customers insights.
How can I build an engaged community? Which are the best tools? …
What is the difference between Design Thinking, Lean Startup and Agile?
I often get asked what the difference is between those terms. “Is lean startup opposite of design thinking? oh no, maybe it is the same?” and “Ah ok, so you mean agile?” or “I think Agile is a better word for it”. Those are some of the comments I get whenever I talk about one of terms above.

Design thinking is an iterative process in which we thrive…

Can you tell the difference between a human Instagram account and a bot account? How many influencers bots are you actually following? To find some answers to my questions, I created Julio Del Mar: a virtual photographer that is managing his own Instagram account, independently from humans. Julio does not need human interaction to grow, besides the electricity to run a machine, equal to about $5/ month.
As his last name suggests, Julio is a virtual photographer with one unique passion: the ocean.
In the following, I will explain how I made him work, for more technical details check my…
