Some notes and photos from Saturday’s UX camp in ZÃ¼rich: Adrian Sameli took us thru the process of building infographics. His tip on tools to use: Excel and Adobe Illustrator. He tried one or two infographic tools but didn’t like them much. In the discussion we looked at d3js.org. Next, I attended a session on […]

At the dentist on Friday: A Herbert Grönemeyer song played on the radio and my dentist started whistling along while I was on the dentist’s chair. Too funny.
I briefly started talking about WordPress alternative with @persillie the other evening. Downsides of WordPress: It’s slow It’s not easy enough to use for non-techies Adding a shop could be a lot easier She mentioned Squarespace: I like the user interaction of #squarespace – but you need to be a US, Canadian, Irish or british […]
The outline of Michiru mountain in Blantyre. The Wikipedia page for Michiru mountain needs some more info. What is the altitude in meters? 1470m? Lonely Planet reference Malawi Travel Guide
Apparently 80% of all Copenhageners cycle in winter. There’s a Tumblr site called Viking Biking which shows photos of people cycling in snow. No snow in Basel. I don’t cycle in icy road conditions. But apart from that, I also cycle in winter.
It’s December 2014 and I’m still taking snapshots. Last year I selected 1 photo for each month. I will try the same for 2014. Here we go.

More snapshots on Flickr.
The first autumn storm has made it to Basel. Strong wind. Cold air. Rain. A great opportunity to post old Flickr photos related to autumn.
Here’s a useful link if you’re a shy introvert. Click-bait heading. With a heading like that, it’s bound to get some clicks. I’ve tried some of the tips mentioned in the article. Sometimes they’ve backfired. Especially, if the other person is shy, or answers all of your conversation openers with a monosyllable. Related links: Networking […]

This is how much time you have to get your message across: “imagine you are standing on the pavement and your audience is about to cycle past you. That is the amount of time you have to get their attention.“
On 6 September 2004, I posted my very first entry on this site. Many thanks to my 5 regular readers for being so faithful. You rock! Big thank you to the WordPress community and Automattic for keeping WordPress.org open source and free. More than ever we need independent and free web publishing software.
Buffer published this article on setting up Twitter cards. I started experimenting with Twitter cards a couple of weeks ago. Via Leumund, I learnt that you can use Twitter cards for lead generation.
Mixing one of my Freiburg photos with some HTML and CSS: http://chiperoni.ch/aerial/index.html Looks best on a 13″ or smaller. On larger screens, the photo doesn’t fill the whole space. The original is here: http://html5up.net/aerial
I got very lost in the KÃ¼ttigen-Rombach-Aarau area yesterday. Google Maps sent me to the wrong place. I missed the event. It was raining. I gave up. And walked back to Aarau. I found a nice place to recover called Tuchlaube. Next time I’ll try Gossip: On my way back to the station I found […]
Today I went for a nice 5 km in the sunset. Not sure if I’m ready for a 10 km race by end of the month. I’ll decide this week.
Just saw this entry via this tweet: A Book of Tweets By People Claiming They’re Working on Their Novels Maybe one day I will publish my Twitter poetry collection on dead wood.
Via an Indieweb wiki page, I found this article: Unless your friend bows to the same silo-god as you do, the two of you can not communicate. Recommended read.
Here’s a simple example how you can publish your content on your own site and syndicate elsewhere (POSSE): I posted a boring flower snapshot into my self-hosted WordPress (WP) blog. WP posted the entry to Twitter using WP plugins Hum and Publicize One of my Twitter followers replied to my tweet. Using Webmention, the tweet […]
I went for a 60 minute run today. I did some stairs and ran up a steep hill. Good running weather today. This Apple ad (that just played on TV) fits well: Tomorrow is a new day.
Nostalgic moment for the 90s: Jimmy Cliff playing on the radio… reminded me of the time in my life when I used to borrow music CDs from the local library during my student years. It gave me access to the entire album, not just the hit singles. And it didn’t drain a student’s budget. And […]
I went for a short 30 minute run. Happy I made it out of the door. Looking forward to the weekend and more running.
I went for a 40 minute run today. Only the first 5 minutes were dry. Then it started raining. Towards the end of my run, the rain became quite intense. Even my trusted rain gear was soaked through. It was the third time I got soaked today. I guess the rainy season is back.
A tweet to keep. I stumbled across this C.S. Lewis quote: “Notice how we are perpetually surprised at time… In heavens name, why? Unless, indeed, there is something in us which is not temporal.” — C. S. Lewis (@CSLewisDaily) July 6, 2014 A valid question to consider. Sun’s shining. A beautiful day lies ahead. Will […]
