New Job

August 30th, 2008 — 8:03pm
Xpiron Inc. Public Library of Science

Next week I will be starting as a software developer at Public Library of Science.

I spent more than 7 years at Xpiron. This is the longest time I spent at any company. I went through Xpiron’s ups and downs. Xpiron is now a stable company with solid number of customers and a promising future. It was a great experience.

I am really excited about PLoS. They have an unique architecture. Mulgara RDF database at back end, Fedora BLOB store, Topaz object-triplet mapping and Ambra publishing platform.

This year is a year of change of me. A new job, a new flat and I am becoming a father in October !

Yugoslav New Wave Music From 80-ies

April 5th, 2008 — 10:01am

During first half of 1980-ies a wave of new music and art happened in former Yugoslavia. Not being a member of Warsaw Pact, communist Yugoslavia had more liberal system than the rest of East European countries. But specially after Josip Broz Tito died in 1980, his uncharismatic successors were unable to maintain his firm grip on society. People started discovering new freedoms.

Unfortunately, this creative period ended with fall of Yugoslavia and civil wars in 90-ies.

Here is a small collection of videos from that period: Link>

CIA papers on Yugoslavia

June 28th, 2007 — 9:52pm

An interesting document “YUGOSLAVIA: THE OUTWORN STRUCTURE” (PDF) from recently released CIA ESAU papers. Contains mostly stuff already known about events in late 60-ies and early 70-ies. Demise of Rankovic and decentralization of the government. An interesting detail: Soviets have approached Croatan separatist in Western Europe
