Just a quick note to let the world know that today I am officially becoming a teleworker and moving to Barcelona. I am really thankful to Igalia for giving me this flexibility; it is amazing to be able to make your job and your personal life work together instead of having one determine the other.

Finally! I have returned to this blog after a year and a half of absence. My last entry was written in the Canary islands during the GCDS and lots of things have happened in the meantime.

On October 2009 I took a year off from work to take part in the MSc. in Human-Centred Interactive Technologies at the University of York. This is a full-time MSc. that focuses on providing a theoretical basis and research methodology for the design and evaluation of interactive systems. The experience was great, I learnt a lot, met many good people and even got a distinction out of it. The whole thing began as a crazy idea but now I am very happy that I was able to do it.

I returned to Igalia a couple of months ago and am back at working on free technologies. Now that I have some formation on interaction design and usability, I plan to gradually orient my work more and more towards these topics. I really hope to be able to write here more often.
