One can know a man from his laugh, and if you like a man’s laugh before you know anything of him, you may confidently say that he is a good man.

The wheel, poetic thought by George-B
(The smudge and other poems)

In the quest
To define the wheel
The scientist gave it the circle
The artist gave it any shape
The wood cutter cut a section of a tree…
And rolled downhill…
there came Pythagoras, and
he gave the wheel it’s formula

What’s wrong with WordPress? Attitude: Akismet ovestepping its rights over administrators blacklists! Shame on you!

As a blogger at WordPress you have no rights! Not even the right to be safe in your own blog! this is not a FirsT AMMENDMENT ISSUE: IT’S AN ISSUE OF ABUSER OF POWER AND DISCRESSION! AND IT IS ILLEGAL!

iT IS MY RIGHT TO DENY ACCESS AS i SEE FIT, AND NOT WORPRESS.COM TO FORCEFULLY AND UNILATERALLY ALLOW PARASITIC bloggers to change the dynamic and  of blogging: I understand when someone likes a blog, but I repudiate any use of other people’s post as exclusive activity on WordPress. It is wrong, to think that some among us represent our work, by choosing (others posts): Who has licensed them to be our illuminated master, editors, publishers? See what I’m saying? If you don’t, you don’t tke your blogging seriously, believe me!

2013 in review


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

Madison Square Garden can seat 20,000 people for a concert. This blog was viewed about 67,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Madison Square Garden, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

From New Relic: How to speed Up WordPress in 7 Easy Steps (Click to access Article)

By: Leigh Shevchik | Posted in: Performance Tech TipsPHPTop Post, Mar. 6th, 2013

Last month, we discussed the importance of implementing a CDN to speed up your site content. Sticking with this theme, let’s take a closer look at how you can improve the performance of your WordPress blog or website.

There are nearly 59 million active WordPress blogs, yielding just over 29 million new posts every month. That’s an unbelievable amount of content. How fast that content loads can be a huge driver in your blog’s success. In fact, a 2011 KISSmetrics study showed that you should expect to see about a 25% abandonment rate after a four second page load delay.

Today”S Quotation: George Eliot (1819-1880)


I’ve been a great deal happier … since I have given up thinking about what is easy and pleasant, and being discontented because I couldn’t have my own will. Our life is determined for us—and it makes the mind very free when we give up wishing, and only think of bearing what is laid upon us, and doing what is given us to do.

Quotation of the Day: Jane Austen – On Human Temerity To Adjust and Surmount


There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are all apt to expect too much; but then, if one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better: we find comfort somewhere.
(from Ch. 5 of Mansfield Park)

Today Quotation: E.M. Forster: On Great Men distrust, and reasons to such!


I distrust Great Men. They produce a desert of uniformity around them and often a pool of blood too, and I always feel a little man’s pleasure when they come a cropper. E. M. Forster (1879-1970) Discuss

Today’s Quotation: E. M. Forster


Failure or success seem to have been allotted to men by their stars. But they retain the power of wriggling, of fighting with their star or against it, and in the whole universe the only really interesting movement is this wriggle.

E. M. Forster (1879-1970) Discuss

My Take On this:

In last analysis it is the closest thought to the reality of life; It was dressed in many clothes and became fundamental brick of our human foundation: “More important than the gifts we have received at birth is what we do with them and no matter what life surprises us with, we cannot let the flicker of light in our soul die out.”

One perfect example is WordPress, that allows so many people, many more than any other media, access to voice their creative selves, to the delight, benefit, and enlightment of many more people than any other media: The resultant is a world that speaks with more eloquent diversity than ever before in the history of humanity.

So, fellow bloggers, I would say: let’s take E.  M. Forster’s idea, and keep the “interesting movement” alive.

Until next time!

The Birth of WordPress: All the Hows and the Whys are here!


Interview with Matt Mullenweg: The birth and development of WordPress

Amazing: You gotta love this!
An Open Source Platform is The Open Mind; And an open mind is how humanity developed so far: wouldn’t you agree?
Imagine a car that one cannot drive, unless one know how to build it… Now: How many cars do you see on the road? I bet the number is close to none. The same concept applied to software, works in the same way: Some companies make it impossible to figure out their applications and each year come with updates that are senseless, and I believe the reasons have nothing to do with easiness of use, but rather the contrary: their way to keep the source to themselves, is by keeping the the user busy with figuring out how to do things.  That way of thinking has so little to do empowerment of the user to become creative, as it takes precious time and resources to get over the learning phase, really the “driving” (remember the analogy with the car?).
So friends: Can you see how important the way we live, and think is, and this time I’m asking you: Can you see the way we can make a difference in the world, by making things easier, lighter, more accessible, more open source, less proprietary? Sharing is openness. So the first thing that comes into mind is this: Lets start ask for a user friendly technology!
Thanks Matt,

 I enjoyed your interview on Bloomberg immensely and learned a lot from it!

Hello World!


Air bridge overheadWelcome to: euzicasa.wordpress.com 

        This website is about art, artists and the way some of them  have influenced my whole life.
If at times the content may seem nostalgic, is only when it resonate in quality, in message and in power to influence human knowledge of one’s feelings.
        I am reminded of the little time we have to meditate upon the beauty around us, in an infinity of forms.
It is a duty, I think to share values, like leaflets over a monotonous life, and troubled civilization, away from the roll of coins that cannot buy neither a soul, nor that which makes us human.
        So happy trails, and I hope you too will find something in theses pages that you’ll like to share with others.

Thank You Friends,

George. Continue reading
