I went for a long slow run today. Along the Wiese river. Up to Bettingen. Via my favourite sawdust track (aka Finnenbahn) at Ausserberg. And, ending my run at the Kneipp facility in Riehen. Feeling positive and blessed.

Looking for *the button* to reboot the universe?

Jog log: Early bird
Achievement of the week. I managed to go running twice this week – in the morning before work. It’s cold and dark. Getting outside and getting started is the challenge. Running is fun. And overcoming my inner pig dog (only Germans have this) is even better.
Jog log: This hill in my backyard
I went for a slow run up the hill today. Two kilometres on the sawdust track and then further up the hill, all the way to the top. I don’t have any metrics to share because I haven’t jumped on the “quantified self” bandwagon. Yet. My guess: more than 1 and a half hours and […]

The Nutella Alternatives Group at Flickr
Yay, the Nutella Alternatives group is growing (world dominion imminent…). Recent additions include: The question Why spend so many hours and bytes on Nutella and derivatives? It’s a web differentiator! And when people wander thru the shopping aisles with their phone cams they need a purpose. The Flickr group lists all the details: http://www.flickr.com/groups/nutellaalternative/ Childhood […]
Seen in Martin Gyger’s Flickr stream: These lego faces are fun! Just like web icons… you can see the pixels when you zoom in.
Some fun links to start off the week: Australia from memory The usefulness of Web 2.0
smiling at this comic: What the Duck
