Veerle’s blog goes mobile

24 comments 2009 at 06.02 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

The folks of Mobify contacted me a few weeks ago with the request if they could create a mobile version of my blog. A mobile version of the blog is one of those things that got moved from my ‘to-do’ list to the ‘one day’ list. This request sounded like music to my ears, and of course I was really curious about the outcome, but first, some introduction…

The Atomium restored

17 comments 2006 at 01.59 am posted by Veerle Pieters

France has its Eiffel Tower and we Belgians have our Atomium, a replica of an iron molecule with nine aluminum spheres. It was built for the World Fair of 1958 in Belgium. Its engineer André Waterkeyn came up with the idea in 1954 to celebrate scientific progress. The event was the first after the New York world fair and the first world fair for Belgium since 1935.

175 year Belgium, the history…

22 comments 2005 at 12.36 am posted by Veerle Pieters

In case you are not interested in the history just watch the two movies below, but you should read it to brush up your history, I did ;-) Not many Belgians or others for that matter will remember that only a few days ago we remembered the start of the Belgian revolution. So our country is celebrating it’s 175th birthday.

Designers equal to programmers?

53 comments 2005 at 11.54 am posted by Veerle Pieters

Not so long ago I received a few e-mails from beginning designers who asked my opinion about the value of a designer versus a programmer. They said that they often got the reaction from programmers that a designer is less valuable and that the hourly rate should be much less then what a programmer charges.

Macromedia’s history

14 comments 2005 at 11.00 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

An aspect of Duoh! that we didn’t talked about so far here is the creation of CD-ROMS. But first let us turn back the clock a little. It all starts somewhere in 1985 with a company called MacroMind. They released an application called Videoworks and struck a licensing deal with Apple in 1986 to put an “interactive guided tour” on every shipped Mac.

The most earth scattering news today is the announcement that Macromedia and Adobe join forces. My first reaction was, is this a late April fools?

Transparent desktop confab

Something fun for the Easter weekend is to create the illusion of a transparent screen. And no… I did not dismantle my PowerBook screen to get this as a result. I might be a little crazy but not that crazy ;-)

Sleep who needs it…. part II: Power nap

18 comments 2005 at 12.50 am posted by Veerle Pieters

In my previous article about sleep we talked about the fact that there’s just too much living to be done with a direct result that we cut back on our hours of sleep. This brings us to the topic of today’s post.

Such cruelty doesn’t fit in my (ideal) society!

First let me paint a picture of the thoughts that I had about Canada. I always assumed that Canada was a country that had great respect for its citizens, the environment and its animals. It is one of the countries that I’m planning on visiting in this lifetime just because of the beautiful surroundings.
