The art of trolling and its connection to innovation


Letter to the Earth from distant space

Recent events shocked the World. However, I don’t really want to talk about high casualties in Nice or Turkey in recent two days, event thought this post was motivated by these events. We live in a world that is shaking unstable. There are terrorist attacks almost on monthly bases, many Middle East and African countries are in civil wars, we see a lot of racism and religious non tolerance, etc. However, if you look at the bigger picture and what is causing these conflicts, they are irrelevant and even stupid. I would be brave enough to say that most of the conflicts people have (between people or between nations, groups, etc.) are usually motivated by stubbornness of a crazy little


Story behind Declaration of the Rights of the Child

I would like to share a story behind the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. Since it is a story about conflict and international blockade, which I have also experienced, I will try to explain what happens in these situations from my experience as a child in a country under the blockade. I would do this so you can better picture how it is like for a child to live in these conditions and why it is important to stop international blockades and sanctions. So let me start.

Our story starts with year 1919. The First World War have finished in November 1918. Allied nations put earlier during the war blockade on Central powers (Austria, Hungary and Germany). This


Komentari na Zakon o informacionoj bezbednosti/Comments on Serbian law on information security

Srpska verzija

Nedavno je u Skupštini republike Srbije usvojen Zakon o informacionoj bezbednosti. Tekst usvojenog zakona se može pronaći na sajtu parlamenta. Tokom leta je bila u toku javna rasprava o zakonu, tokom koje sam se i ja uključio sa mojim komentarima. Moji komentari se mogu videti niže u embedovanom PDF dokumentu (telefone i email adresu sam sakrio, dok je ostatak originalni dokument koji je bio poslat i ministarstvu nadležnom za zakon). Iz ministartsva sam dobio povratnu informaciju da su moji komentari korisni i da će biti uzeti u obzir. Radi poređenja, ovde se može naći nacrt zakona u formi od jula 2015., kada su komentari i nastali.

Neću mnogo komentaristati usvojen zakon, osim toga da se nije


Hacker’s lament

But did you, in your three-piece psychology and 1950’s
technobrain ever take a look behind the eyes of the Hacker? Did you ever
wonder what made him tick, what forces shaped him, what may have molded

I am a Hacker, enter my world….

Mine is a world that begins with school… I’m smarter than most
of the other kids, this crap they teach us bores me…

Damn underachiever. They’re all alike.

I made a discovery today. I found a comupter. Wait a second,
this is cool. It does what I want it to. If it makes a mistake it’s
because I screwed it up. Not because it doesn’t like me…

GreatUniHack – impressions from hackathon

This weekend (17th-19th April 2015.) I was participating GreatUniHack, so I would like to share here some impressions and experiences. GreatUniHack is a 36 hour hackathon organised by University of Manchester students and supported by Major League Hacking – an planetary organisation that supports hackathons around the World. It was held in Old Grenada Studios, the place where I was told Coronation street was filmed and some other popular BBC series.

It was supposed to start at 6PM on Friday 17th April. After a bit of struggling with meeting one of our team member, we managed to arrive at the place at 6:10. We found a table, took couple of photos. In my team was Michele, who is


I vote for Charlie Chaplin

Definitely, if there is a politician who would think and drive as Charlie Chaplin did in the Great Dictator, I would vote for him/her. This speech outlines the value humanity or a community  should strive to. This is quite funny comedy of Hitler at that time, but the speech is everlasting and remains true. Here is original speech:

I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone – if possible – Jew, Gentile – black man – white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by


Manchester – first impressions

I haven’t written here for couple of months. There was several reasons for that. My trip to Manchester and my PhD was preparing. There was a lot of changes going on, and there was almost no time for writing. Now there is a little time to write about first impressions.

I arrived to Manchester at 13th January 2014. from Belgrade via Munich. So by now I am about one month here. I arrived as mentioned before for my Research PhD in computer science. I am part of Natural language processing and text mining research group in the school of computer science, University of Manchester. My PhD topic is about information extraction from tables in biomedical literature.

In the 2012 Academic


How Sentiment analysis tool for English language was built


Firstly I would like to anounce that this blog will go English from now on. This is quite a big change, but since topics of blog changed from time I started it, when I was in high school, at that time at some hotmail site service, that was later ported to wordpress.com, then I migrated it to inspiratron, it is better this way. Most of my posts are related to computer security and natural language processing, so there is quite small audience for it in Serbia (we did not have even stemmer built except mine and one with too many rules by Kešelj and Šipka). So I decided to continue with English.

TED najbolje priče

TED.com je verovatno najbolji izvor govora najinteligentnijih ljudi na ovoj planeti. TED je skraćenica za Technology, Entertainment and Design.

Prvi od govora koje bih izdvojio je govor Susan Cain: The power of introverts, koji se može naći na sledećem linku:


Susan govori o trenutnom društvenom ustrojenju gde su stvari prilagođene, osobitu u Sjedinjenim Američkim Državama ekstravertima. Međutim, objašnjava da takve stvari nisu odgovarajuće velikom delu populacije koji su introverti. Takođe na primerima pokazuje moć introverta, odnosno stvari koje introverti i na koji način rade bolje od ostalih. S obzirom da sam jedan od njih, svakom preporučujem video.
