BBC NEWS | UK | Magazine | The Simpsons as philosophy Well, actually I found this article through a thread in alt.fan.blade-runner. I’m a big fan of Blade Runner (book, movie and game) and therefore look through the subjects regularly. Just to use the opportunity, together with another german fan we just started a german blog to bring interesting BR … Read More

iTunes Companion

Hey, here’s another really cool prog although it’s -only- a widget really. It’s called iTunes Companion and it does the following: It automatically grabs the album title of the song your currently playing and looks for the fitting album art on amazon and google (if you don’t have it already of course). Then it puts it in its own window … Read More

Neues Urheberrecht: Kabinett kriminalisiert Kopierer – Netzwelt – SPIEGEL ONLINE – Nachrichten Apparently they finally did it. Quiet, sneaky and nearly unnoticed the german parliament made a new copyright law. The process has taken some years now and it included new aspects to secure technologies like DRM, copy protection and comparable techniques. They started with banishing all software that breaks … Read More

OpenSource Storytelling and Game Design?

yodahomeFilme, Meinungen, movies, thoughtsLeave a Comment

I’m just doing some updates to a little project of mine hopefully becoming a full story on day. And suddenly I wondered whether there has been any attempt to write a story in the way they do OpenSource Software. Like e.g. Debian with many Developers from anywhere in the world contributing to a single project solemnly over the web. I … Read More

The Dilbert Blog: Too Many Coincidences

yodahomeFilme, Meinungen, movies, thoughtsLeave a Comment

The Dilbert Blog: Too Many Coincidences This is a very interesting discussion about coincidences. I actually don’t believe in coincidences and my favourite quote from above’s comments is: “coincidences are a glimpse of an underlying pattern”. That’s quite close to what I see in all those little things that happen at surprisingly the right time. But maybe we as humans … Read More

Well, when I flew to London I was (among other things) introduced to new wonderful products that I didn’t know until then. One thing was a british brand of potato chips called Burts. They handed out free samples on the plane and I immediately fell in love with them. Just in case I didn’t mention it in this blog before, … Read More

Small cities

Well, as I pointed out repeatedly I visited London during the holidays and one thing I sadly discovered when coming back was: If you have been to a really big city once it’s really hard to come back to a kind of small city. For explanation, the city I live in counts about 250.000 people and is indeed the largest … Read More

Mind the gap

Probably the most important sentence that I will remember from my five day trip to London. Whenever you go by tube you will hear this over and over again three, times at each station. It is mainly a warning so that you don’t fall off the train when entering or leaving but I suppose it is much more than just … Read More

As I spent a few days in London I managed to grab some pictures of the very huge fireworks at the “London Eye”. Standing on Westminster Bridge all0wed a beautiful view along the river and millions of people shared this event.
