wget it on

Today the german hosting company "domainFactory" (dF) announced that they will stop supporting the old PHP Versions 4 and 5. dF is one of the last providers to do so. So this comes as no surprise and I've been waiting for this moment for quite a while now: We have a couple of $clients that...

Die Zerstörung der CDU - Rezo

Ein Stunde über die zukunfts-fähigkeit und -willen der Altparteien, abgearbeitet an der Union, die in den letzten 36 Jahren 29 Jahre in der Regierung war und, das muss man anhand der hier präsentierten Faktenlage sagen, eine Politik fährt, die unsere Gesellschaft und den Planeten zerstört. Ansehen, auch wenn Du über 30 bist. Und nächsten Sonntag...

Status as a Service - Eugene Wei

A very interesting article by @eugenewei about social capital and how social networks tap into our need to compete and feel somewhat better than the rest.

Can “Indie” Social Media Save Us? – Cal Newport, The New Yorker

A nice article about the IndieWeb, published on a paywalled site ("you have three articles left this month") 🤷🏼‍♂️. I find it a bit too focussed on servers and social media platforms, but with the right angle about 'engineered adictiveness'.

For the ninth year I attended this great small conference about Web, Design and going beyond. Here are some notes and thoughts. Maybe I polish it later, but I want to get this out of my head. These moments stuck with me - which does not mean that any talk that is not mentioned here...

The Power of Metaphor - Mike Hill @Beyond Tellerrand Conference, Düsseldorf 2019

This talk yesterday kind of illustrated the frame for many of the stories that were told by the talks that followed. The circle of stories, the archetypes, the whole 'going from the known to the unknown', the 'old self / new self' transformation, the dragon's den… there's a lot of that to be found in...

How Imposter Syndrome works

WordPress 5.2

WordPress Logo an die VW-Fabrik gephotoshopped

Eine neue fünfer WordPress-Version ist gestern erschienen, mit einigen Zutaten, die den Entwicklern und Admins von WordPress-befeuerten Seiten das Leben leichter machen sollen und man hat wohl die Zugänglichkeit des Backends weiter verbessert: Die Mindest-PHP-Version wurde auf 5.6 angehoben - ganz alte und/oder ungepflegte Webhostingumgebungen mit PHP 5.2 könnten da Probleme bekommen. Das Update bekommt...
