Bicycle parking gadget

If the bicycle parking area is too large, people will forget where they left their bike. Like at the Velo Parking at Basel SBB. This evening a young woman was looking for her bicycle.

Lift ( Day 2.0 )

A small little trend I observed: Quite a couple of presentations are using Flickr photos as a background…

LIFT conf ( Day 1 )

My first workshop at LIFT 07 was great. Enjoyed it. I attended Glenn O’Neil’s D.I.Y. Monitoring and Evaluation…. I’m feeling kind of feverish and I’ve got a bad headache, which is ignoring the Aspirin I’ve already taken.

LIFT conf ( Day 0 )

Bungled reservation, seedy area of town, my Lift conf is off to a flying start from an accomodation point of view….now testing the hotel wifi.
