Google Wave in Thunderbird

I’ve been on Google Wave now for a few weeks, but I haven’t done very much with it yet. First of all: I was very willing to give away my invitations, but only two people asked for it, so I have 23 invitations left! Nobody to wave with 🙁 All the same: there are some […]

A Day in the Internet

Online Education – the stuff they don’t teach you in college – has a very impressive infograph on daily internet-traffic:

Average Geek… :-(

Every now and then I’m thinking of the TV-series Dexter’s Laboratory, and especially the episode where he was called “average” by his arch-nemesis Mandark. Today I found out about another GeekTest, and of course I couldn’t resist the temptation to test my own geekiness again. My score was 40,4 %, and that is more or […]

I’m on Wave!

Finally I have my Google Wave invitation! Now I have to find out what the fuzz is all about. Reading the Google Wave Blog and watching some videos is fine, of course. The best way to get started is to get started, and the best way to learn things is by doing things, so I […]

Twitter Mania

It took some time for me to get the hang of Twitter. Of course I signed up rather early, on May 25th 2007. Two days later I found the courage to publish my first tweet with the unforgettable words “first twit….” (sic!). Twitbin, a Firefox addon, helped me to tweet more. But still, I didn’t […]


These days, people are still having babies by old-school sexual reproduction, so you want to know who your progenitors are and where you stand in the family tree. This post is about genealogy software. I only use a family tree for my Albert Lortzing-project, the German composer of “,Spieloper“, and for this the great program […]

Cloud Intelligence

Earlier I wrote on Cloud Computing, like Airset, iCloud, EyeOS and Glide) but now we have also Cloud Intelligence. In the cloud of connections, we each become social neurons, mimicking the biological human brain but on a giant scale.

  • The Aesthetics and Beauty of Knowledge

    Shih was the opposite of facts and raw information; shih was the elegance of knowledge, the insight and skill to organize knowledge into meaningful patterns. As an artist chooses colours or light to make her pictures, a master of shih chooses textures of knowledge – various ideas, myths, abstractions, and theories – to create a way of seeing the world. The aesthetics and beauty of knowledge – this was shih.

    – David Zindell, The Broken God, 1993

  • Geek Attitude

    The attitude thing is about flexibility, portability, creativity, sociability and jamming (ran out of suitable “ity” words!). It’s about improvising – in the practical and musical senses of the word; not getting tangled in boundaries and the “right” way to do things.
    Definitely the only way to travel.
