hello world!

Into the peaks

Here we are, starting a blog *again*.
As you will have noticed, the layout of the entire website changed. The blog is now embedded in a scrolling, colorful template.
This should be a more enjoyable layout for mobile devices users as well as old fashioned desktop/laptop addicted.
I will do my best to make the contents enjoyable as well.
As a prompt start I am suggesting an electronic relaxing track. It fits perfectly a really interesting video about the universe seen as scaled in powers of 10.

Who is The Shepherd?

My name is Alvin and I am an Italian born learner.

I am interested in a broad variety of topics.

I am currently working on a multi-perspective topic called Neuroeconomics. It involves studying human behaviour in uncertain situations from different points of view. Psychological, Economic and Neuroscientific.

I cannot live without music. It is impossible to give a comprehensive list of genres therefore I will point you to my tagcloud.

I read a lot, mostly scientific papers, but I don’t dislike a good novel once in a while.

I love movies. I have a discrete collection (~140 titles), but I am always looking for new – or old – pearls to add.

I enjoy football, a lot. The company, the competition, learning tricks, using tricks, the passion, the commitment, the hits taken, the hits given, the victories, the defeats.

I had many teachers in my life. Some were in school, in university. Others were somewhere else, along my path. Some are still there and some are not anymore. Some are yet to be met. To all of them I say thank you.

the real thing is the journey.
