10 signs that you aren’t cut out for IT


It’s a tough world out there. Anyone who’s ever worked in IT knows just how tough it is. And if you’re not totally up for the challenge, there will always be someone else who is. But for anyone considering getting into the world of IT, or for those considering getting out of IT… how do you know? How do you know whether you are really cut out for the career that chews up and spits out its young? Well, I have a handy list of signs that maybe IT isn’t the best fit for you.
1: You lack patience

Patience is most certainly a virtue in IT. When some problems strike, they strike with vengeance and most often require a good deal of time to resolve. If you are without patience, you’ll either give up, lose your mind, or pull out all your hair. But the need for patience doesn’t end at dealing with problems. Many times, end users will test your patience more than the technology will. If that’s the case, I recommend that you either get away from having to deal with end users or (if that’s not possible), leave IT immediately.
2: You have no desire to continue your education

IT is an ever-evolving field and without the desire to continue learning, you’re already way behind the curve. This is one of those fields where you must be okay with constantly learning something new. That might mean taking a class or attending a workshop or just hitting the books on your own. But no matter how you slice that education, you must be willing to continue to learn.
3: You refuse to work outside 9-to-5

Technology doesn’t adhere to a set schedule. Servers go down whenever they want and business must go on. So you must be willing to wake up in the middle of the night, work long hours during the week, and work weekends. If you’re someone who refuses to let your workweek interfere with your personal life — well, the writing on the wall is pretty clear.
4: You don’t like people…

Infographics: How to Strike the Elusive Balance between Data and Visualization


They started out as a social media experiment and then suddenly everyone wanted a piece.

A couple years back, if you dropped the word ‘Infographic’ or ‘Dataviz’ in a conversation, you would have been greeted by a good number of confused looks even if you were among other web designers.

Today, so many infographics have gone viral that it’s practically impossible to ignore them. You’ll find them tweeted by your friends who want to share an interesting new find, promoted by companies eager to display their growth trends and utilized by even the White House for its progress reports.

No matter what you are searching for online, whether employment statistics or endangered animals, you are sure to find an infographic for it. If you, miraculously, aren’t able to recall any that you have seen, take a look at this list of the 10 best infographics of 2011 via Nowsourcing to catch up.
Infographics spice up ‘boring’ data

Infographics are useful because they turn historically lengthy and tedious bulks of data in to something that’s much more interesting: a visual.

As a society heading into the new decade, we want to read less and see more. While this doesn’t bode too well for book publishers, it’s opened a whole new creative area for designers.

An increasing number of companies and clients are recognizing the benefits of infographics and want their data jazzed up and dressed for the prom. They know that their assiduously compiled information has a far better chance of being read, appreciated, shared and widely circulated if it looks less like an annual report and more like the next big meme. And if you aren’t convinced yet, here’s an infographic on why you should use infographics.
You will need your existing skills. And more.

While the graphics used in infographics have become more eye-catching and sophisticated, they are not too different in purpose from the charts and graphs we used to make in high school. After all, the objective is still to present data in a more visually engaging and accessible way.

However, print and web designers are having a hard time transferring their existing skills to infographics because, as the many aspiring infographics designers will tell you, designing good infographics isn’t as simple as it looks. Sure, you still need the same essential aesthetic and technical skills but you should also be able to effectively translate data into visuals. Most importantly, you need to ensure that the infographic acts as an informative tool and not as a visual distraction.
The 7 rules of great infographic design…

El SMS busca rejuvenecer para recuperar el terreno perdido


Este tipo de aplicaciones y la mensajería que se puede realizar gracias a las redes sociales han hecho que las operadoras tuvieran perdidas con un valor aproximado de casi 14 mil millones de dólares durante el año pasado y parece que la trayectoria continuará del mismo modo durante este año, si no cambian las cosas. Las operadoras están decididas a dar una alternativa con SMS 2.0. Esta nueva versión ha aprendido de la evolución que ha habido durante estos últimos años e incorporará muchas novedades, la descripción sencilla sería simplemente decir que ofrecerá muchas de las cosas que tenemos actualmente: además de enviar mensajes de texto se podrán enviar imágenes o realizar chats en grupo, algo para lo que se habrían hecho muchos cambios en el back-end del sistema, cuyo principal cambio es que para la transmisión de esos datos se tendrían que usar el canal MCM en lugar del canal SMS, que sólo permite el envío de mensajes de texto.

Topless protesters crash Milan Fashion week in demo against anorexic models


Topless feminists clashed with police as they protested against the use of anorexic models outside the Versace fashion show in Milan yesterday.

The protesters, from the feminist group Femen, wore jeans and handwritten slogans such as ‘Fashion = Fascism’ and ‘Anorexia’ scrawled across their bare chests.

The three attractive women – understood to be model themselves – chanted outside the high-end fashion show while holding aloft handmade placards with the same mottos and ‘Models do not go to brothels’. The organisation states its goals as ‘to develop leadership, intellectual and moral qualities of the young women in Ukraine’ and ‘to build up the image of Ukraine, the country with great opportunities for women’.
As well as the ‘Fashion = Fascism’ slogan, the models also scrawled ‘Models do not go to brothel’ over their bodies and placards

As well as the ‘Fashion = Fascism’ slogan, the models also scrawled ‘Models do not go to brothel’ over their bodies and placards

It now appears that campaigning against anorexia has shot to the forefront of their agenda following the continued use of size zero models in fashion shows across the globe despite increasing media and social pressure to put an end to the practice.

Life-saving new cancer drugs are being held back so the Government can save money, claims GlaxoSmithKline chief executive


Not an option: the drug Avastin, made by the firm Roche to treat breast cancer, was one of the drugs rejected by Nice and is therefore not available on the NHS

Sir Andrew accused governments of treating the pharmaceuticals industry as a ‘simple procurement business’ without understanding the wider implications of their decisions.

‘As governments have got more and more anxious about their debt positions and austerity agendas, what happened is quite predictable,’ he said.

‘If you are a minister and you need to cut costs, it is a lot easier to cut drug prices than it is to close a hospital or reduce the size of the Civil Service. I understand that.
