i’ve measured my life out in flickr uploads here’s another life phase
Listening to a talk on “Getting Blogs Done” and eating chocolate. The talk’s about applying “Getting Things Done” concepts to blogging. Getting kind of boring. I guess, I’m not really into GTD. I enjoyed Patrick Zoll’s talk on Corporate Podcasting. Looking forward to Sarah’s talk on the blogs and politics. Enjoying Krusenstern on writing better… Continue reading At BlogCampSwitzerland
Stumbled across this: ‘Un-sexy is good business,’ and other rules from Scott Rafer
I’m de-lurking on Saturday…. Hope to see you at the BlogCampSwitzerland
Today’s attempt to use the USB modem GlobeTrotter Connect with my MacBook failed. I had the right PIN and the right software. But couldn’t connect. The preferences revealed a dialog box with input fields for an APN, a username and a password. I checked the help. There was no explanation what APN stands for… and… Continue reading APN

Malawi currently has only… Continue reading 120 registered nurses leave Malawi per year
The benevolent dictator model This article has been linked to from lots of WordPress sites, but I was just struck by the use of language… software is getting more religious and political comparisons.

Stir up some crumbles for the topping (you can use the same recipe for the topping as in Streuselkuchen, but i’d leave out the cinnamon and use brown… Continue reading crumbled
Fun event: Finish your %#&*@ blog posts. at Citizen Space (Thursday, October 18, 2007) I’ve started deleting blog post drafts, that have been lingering in draft status for over a year…
website, especially the little icons…
I just installed GIMPshop on my (no longer new) MacBook. And the interface looks a lot simpler. And I received a Skitch invite. I don’t like the pink heart icon much. Kitsch. But I somehow managed to get past that and watch the introductory video (!). The features look very useful. It offers a direct… Continue reading Weekend Thoughts
