Posted by fabriziogiudici on July 31, 2010 at 2:20 PM PDT

... make sure you have a working mobile connection and take your laptop to the garden, where you can enjoy some wonderful landscape. In case you don't get the desired efficiency, you'll still enjoy the landscape.

Maven is good, but needs some love

Posted by fabriziogiudici on July 27, 2010 at 1:23 PM PDT

You know that I've moved to Maven more than one year ago and I don't regret. I think I would be unable to manage the number of projects I'm managing on my own without it (or at least without an effective artifact repository).

About Android, the Semantic Web and the BBC

Yes, there is quite a bit of topics in the title, and they are all involved in the latest prototype of blueBill Mobile.

Little teaser: OpenSesame RDF store on Android

A couple of days ago I did a massive refactoring in a couple of components of blueBill Mobile; the ones related to the management of fact sheets (e.g. bird calls with metadata) that I was talking about in a previous post.

"Talk to me"

At about 330 downloads and 150 active installs, the feedback I'm getting from blueBill Mobile customers is very small. It mostly comes from people in a birders' forum where I posted a notice about the app; while the feedback brought from the Android Market infrastructure is practically zero.

The statement of the year

We're still at 50% of the year, but I find this statement from Elliot's blog fantastic:

What's the meaning of "Open Source" for the man in the street?

Posted by fabriziogiudici on June 29, 2010 at 2:53 AM PDT

In the recent weeks I've been surprised by how I received related inputs, from different sources and their perspectives, about the same problem. For instance, two weeks ago, I read an interview by Simon Phipps about the future of OSI an I was hit by this passage:

XML Blues with Android

blueBill Mobile reached more than 200 downloads, with more than 100 active installs. I'm getting a few positive feedbacks and - more important - I didn't receive more problem reports, so I presume that the application is reasonably stable (even though communicating with users is still a problem).

Android, "marketing" strategies and the difficult art of talking to people

Posted by fabriziogiudici on June 12, 2010 at 7:58 AM PDT

After about one month from its appearance on the Android Market, blueBill Mobile experienced more than 150 downloads and a 50% of active installs. I'm using this project also to learn new things about the way to communicating to end users.
