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…
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
There are many teories on how to organize and how team to perform best. I would not talk about them all. I just want to point out one of my experiences where I feel most confortable and where I feel that team is most productive.
I had experience with big companies, big teams, small companies again big teams, small company small team etc. That is why I think I have a right to talk about it. So what is best organization? I would vote for small team, actual minimal team. What do I mean by that? Two or three people teams. In this constalation you will have most productive teams. If you have big product with a lot of people,
Finily I got some time to write about open source community in Serbia that I am leading. I hope it will help also a bit to make it more popular and also I hope it will give some advices to new OWASP chapter leaders or people who want to create some technical community. Feel free to comment also if you have some advices for us.
Question that is offen asked. Especially in countries like Serbia where web security is not well covered topic. So let’s start from the basics.
The Open Web
On April 19th, 2013 first WordPress meetup took place in Serbia. It was held in Prelovac media (company behind ManageWP) offices in New Belgrade. The event was initiated and organized by people with long WordPress background, and I must say that Serbia have them a lot (ManageWP, ThemeKingdom etc).
Since this is my first post about some open source community in Serbia, I must say that as OWASP Serbia local chapter leader and one of board members of NGO that will to be umbrella organization for all (or majority) FLOSS (Free/Libre Open Source Software) communities in Serbia, I should folow this a bit more. So here is my promise that in future I will more care about our FLOSS comunities.
From March 22nd to March 24th was held first Belgrade Startup Weekend.
STARTUP WEEKEND in Serbia was organized under the auspices of HRH Crown Prince Alexander’s Foundation for Education and Culture with the support of the Ministry of Internal and Foreign Trade and Telecommunications and very special effort and initiative of Mrs. Alison Andrews, HRH Prince Peter and Mr. Goran Mialcic.
Over eighty young entrepreneurs gathered at the Royal Palace over the weekend for a crash course of developing a business idea and turning it into a business.
And I was amongst these 80 people who attendet the event. Actually I was the one whose team and idea won first price! So here are the impressions:
Since this event
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.
Gledao sam na TED.com jedan video u kome je Simon Sinek pričao o tome šta to velike lidere čini velikim liderima. Došao sam na ideju da to uporedim sa domaćim trenutnim liderima, osobito onim političkim.
Za početak o čemu se radi:
U svetu postoji gomila organizacija, firmi i drugih formi društvenih uređenja koji imaju nekog svog lidera. Međutim mali broj tih lidera je stvarno nešto uradio i poveo ka uspehu. Navešćemo nekoliko uspešnih. Kao prvog možemo navesti Steva Jobs-a, i kompaniju Apple. Kompanija Apple je trenutno jedna od najuspešnijih firmi u IT industriji i ima armiju pristalica, koje kupuju samo Apple uređaje iako su oni istog kvaliteta i kompanija je iste kompetencije, kao i druge kompanije, a proizvodi su još i skuplji.
Sajt www.starisloveni.com je sajt koji se bavi staroslovenskom mitologijom i religijom. Nastao je davne 2008. godine, međutim o sličnim stvarima razmišljalo se naravno i ranije. Ali u to vreme poklopile su se neke stvari koje su omogućile nastanak sajta. Naime preko jedne rasprave na Yumetalu došli smo ja i Vesna do zaključka da se treba da napravimo sajt. Naravno ja Vesnu nisam znao, ona je predložila da se upoznamo na jednom koncertu u Kolarcu. Naravno, napisa mi i pogrešan broj preko maila, tj izostavi jednu cifru, tako da nisam mogao da je pozovem, elem rešim ja onda da odem na koncert, pa da vidim… možda je i prepoznam. Nekako nakon koncerta primetim jednu devojku da može da
