I spent most of my weekend working and discussing my MBA homework.
- the exchange equation
- money supply
- the monetarists’ first and second proposition
- the cause of inflation
- incremental cash costs
- motivating employees – “interesting work” seems to be a universal motivator
This afternoon I went for a long walk up to St. Chrischona (522 m. above sea level). Lots of bikers and hikers and joggers and nordic walkers were out there as well. There are some beautiful wheat fields. Need to go back with a camera
This morning I read a phrase which captures why I blog:
“…now my attitude is that if I’m not blogging for myself it’s not worth it” (seen at ma.tt)
Between you and me, I don’t care if blogging is dying. Let the social media experts decide. What I do care about is writing. I like the way I can capture and organize thoughts through writing.
Maybe one day I will become a writer. Maybe not.
In the meantime this is my niche at Chiperoni.ch.

Clement Nyirenda – blogs and twitters from Tokyo, where he is doing a PhD in computer science. He covers many IT and development topics related to Malawi.

Read his blog post on Ashton Kutcher’s Twitter stunt to raise awareness about malaria.
There are many more, which I might mention in a second blog post.
This web project manager had a requirement blackout today. In a meeting at the day job somewhere in Switzerland, I seriously couldn’t remember if the tool that I evaluated six months ago – and which I am now using – runs on a Microsoft server.
(Err… Microsoft server? Was that a requirement? )
Sometimes memory fails. I haz a sad.
And time to start planning the vacation…
