Green Meme

As tagged by Henriette.

What do you do in your everyday life, that you would consider green?
Nothing much, really… I try to turn off every light I’m not using and I usually drive a Toyota Prius. I also try to keep updated on the subject by reading several feeds.

How is your surroundings supporting your green ways?
The portuguese government is investing in renewable energy, with wind and solar farms. And the price of fossil fuels is way too much expensive…

How is your surrounding standing in your way of green choices?
There isn’t a bike lane in Lisbon, not even on the riverside, and that really annoys me. Also, the lack of subway on the southern part of the city is also a minus. There is a train line, but it’s not as convenient as a subway.

Is there any actions you want to take to create a more green environment around you?
Right now, I don’t know how.

What is the biggest threat to the Earth’s wellbeing these days?
Waste, in all it’s forms, it being material and human resources.

Whom are you going to tag in the green meme?
Huum… Lilian Lehman (I think she cares about this stuff) and David Rodrigues (he’s left wing enough to care :p).

Please tag this meme with “greenmeme”.

A televisão do futuro?

Parte de um artigo muito engraçado, do João Pedro Pereira, pode ser lido aqui.

Tentei ligar-te, mas estavas imersiva. Ainda estou na plataforma ibérica e aguardo o módulo de sensores para a Ota, para poder trabalhar. Depois apanho o Maglev para Lisboa. Já tenho na ‘tablet’ os arquivos disponíveis da história da RTP até 2026 (ano em que a empresa fechou).

Abstenção no referendo

Depois de tanta pseudo-moralidade, propaganda hardcore, mais direitos do que deveres, não posso deixar de me rir se isto se confirmar: «CNE: abstenção no referendo pode chegar aos 60 por cento».

power supply unit
My computer is looking more like Frankenstein’s Monster each passing day. Thanks to the power shortage last night, my computer’s power supply unit died. It served well for several years, but it’s time was due. Fortunately, I had another one lying around from an old computer and I quickly replaced it, but now I can’t close the computer’s top and since I already have one side open, it’s a wonderful vision of cables and parts inside. I should get a transparent case. That way I could see the dust piling up.

Free Wi-Fi in Lisbon

Lisbon from St. George Castle

Finally, we have free Wi-Fi in Lisbon! The City Hall decided to partner with three ISP (Broadnet, Zapp and PT Wi-Fi), and now everyone can acess the Internet on these locations. This initiative will last until June of 2007. There’s also a RSS channel to follow further news on this subject (in portuguese).
On a more curious note, the initiative’s homepage is licenced under a Creative Commons Licence 2.5. Way to go!

Podcasting In Education – The Slides

Here they are, the slides from the “Podcasting In Education” presentation at SHiFT. Too much stupid images and few words. I have a text that goes perfect with this, it’ll be online later on. But probably not today.

If you can’t see an image below this line, it’s because the presentation’s host site is in beta. And that is pretty much an excuse for everything. You can also try this link.

You may have noticed that I’m using SlideShare. You can comment (on the full presentation or individual slides), share and even “flag as inappropriate”! How appropriate… If you want an invite, you can email me at duartegrilo( at )

Edit: It looks like that site has some issues with WordPress. The slides can now be seen here.
