- this blog: it is my main web presence, where I share complete ideas and stories about my professional and personal experiences.
- Twitter: this is a mini-blog that I decided to keep using because it accepts publications of 140 characters only, saving my time when I really want to share something with you and my duties don't allow me.
- LinkedIn: this is a social network focused on professional links and discussions. It was the only community I found that really has something to add to my carrier. The rest is for fun.
I also left many discussion groups, mailing lists, other social networks and website signatures. Every single email I received from these sites I entered in the respective cancelation page to avoid any future message. This innitiative reduced the volume of daily emails from 40 to 10 (75%), saving my time a lot. I realized that my day became more productive because I stopped reading and replying so many email messages, my attention is more focused and things started to run faster.
On the other hand, I was quite a popular guy, with an active participation on many topics of my interest and in several initiatives promoted by different communities. I will miss it a lot, as I already do, but a more focused life is also good in a long term perspective.
Now, I have basically these three forms of exposition, as listed above, all of them following principles of social networking, but with a more constructive approach. I only hope you become a follower of this blog and share with me what you think about my thoughts. You have three options:

The RSS and Google Friend Connect can be easily accessed in the column on the right. Comments can be added for each post. It will not appear immediately because I have to approve the content first avoiding spammers, but it's a matter of a day maximum. Let's keep in touch sharing interesting and valuable ideas.
PS: I was afraid to do what Eric Tip did in 2007 when the whole Internet was crashed. Don't you believe? So, watch the video below and see with your own eyes.
