Last Saturday I attended Barcamp Bodensee in Konstanz. Here are some brief notes and thoughts on sessions that I attended: Ask a digital teen Barcamp attendees asked a 15 year old what apps and web services he uses. Youtube, Gaming, TeamSpeak, Discord app, some Whatsapp, Google Calendar. No TV. No Facebook. His school doesn’t allow […]
Some photos from my Flickr stream: I’ve got this theory that fresh green colour soothes the eyes and helps to relax. I saw 2 cats. Both look somewhat unamused. And ready to pounce on any intruders. Saturday was sunny and warm. I like this snapshot, taken with my Moto 3 G:

I saw this film: An by Naomi Kawase. I liked it. It’s about freedom. It has a poetic feel. It’s slow and feels real. You get attached to the main characters.

Auto-sharing via Jetpack Publicize didn’t work on my previous post on chiperoni.ch. I’ll need to investigate if there is a conflict with another plugin. Irgendetwas ist immer. Maybe this post will be auto-shared?
Last weekend, I went for a walk on Belchen in the southern Black Forest (1414 m). Not as high and spectacular as the Swiss alps, but still very beautiful. I nearly forgot to take my camera. Here are some snapshots:

I saw this Bufferapp article on declining social media traffic. We’ve lost nearly half our social referral traffic in the last year I say. No wonder. Everybody is online, creating tonnes of content. Most people are too busy to read, let alone follow so many data streams. Many web pages don’t get any traffic at […]
I like this snapshot of blue light flooding the rest of the room:

It’s got a lot of cultural events, museums, cinemas for a city of this size. It’s […]
I found this Wired article discussing Facebook’s recent Notes update for long-form content and Medium. Apparently, “plogging” stands for platform-based blogging.

Inspired by this recipe I made red lentil soup. Turned out very well. In addition to the curry and coriander, I added some ginger, chilis and some Nali sauce.
“Buvettes” are a big thing in Basel in summer. Their popularity is increasing. Same as street food trucks. Photos taken with a Moto G 2nd Gen smartphone. The best camera is the one that is with you.
