The new oil

Anselm just published a response* to NYT's "The Big Five tech companies increasingly dominate our lives. Could you ditch them?" quiz.

His personal results seem to be quite similar to what I'd find out. Ditching Apple for example would be way harder for me as, say, ditching Facebook - which I already try to avoid as much as possible, but as Anselm wrote, with friends using Instagram and Whatsapp constantly, there's no way around touching FB from time to time.

A thought I had while reading this — if data indeed is the new oil, shouldn't we all ...

The Secret Life of Comedy - Espen Brunborg @Beyond Tellerrand Conference, Düsseldorf 2017

This is my favorite talk from this year’s Dusseldorf edition of my favorite conference. Which was brimming with great talks, and to be fair, this “this is my favorite yaddayadda” is highly personal, and a short survey among attending friends showed that one person’s highlight didn’t impress another one and vice versa. Which is the secret sauce of the Beyond Tellerrand mixture (aside from the wonderful Tobi Lessnow of course).

So do yourself a favor and watch all of of the videos that already are online for your viewing pleasure.

I like this talk by Espen Brunborg ...

Hach. Gerade durch Zufall wiederentdeckt, der DJ Random bei youtube ist doch ganz gut ab und an. Eben noch hört man die Thermals und dann, schwubbs, Memory Lane. :-)

Poster Rock – Malleus Rock Art Lab

Gestern hatte ich die Ehre und Gelegenheit, mit unserer Basssport-Gruppe in einer Galerie aufzubassen. Die Untergrund-Galerie in Neu-Isenburg hat eine Ausstellung zu "Icons Of Our Pop Culture", und neben Fotos von diversen Musikern, zu denen ich Affinität verspüre, gab es auch Grafik und Drucke diverser Machart... aber für mich noch interessanter, in einer Ecke waren eine Reihe von Drucken/Plakaten, die eigentlich nicht zur aktuellen Ausstellung gehören. Und da waren einige sehr SEHR schöne Motive von Malleus darunter. Ich bin ja ein großer Freund der Siebdruck-Poster und habe mittlerweile ...

Three things we need to change to save the web – Tim Berners-Lee

Happy Birthday, dear 'web'. 28 years: You are not going to join the 27 club, which is a good thing, but you picked up some bad habits recently.

(…) I imagined the web as an open platform that would allow everyone, everywhere to share information, access opportunities, and collaborate across geographic and cultural boundaries. In many ways, the web has lived up to this vision, though it has been a recurring battle to keep it open. But over the past 12 months, I’ve become increasingly worried about three new trends, which I believe we must tackle in order for

WordPress: nichts für "schnell mal eben" – Christian Fischer

WordPress Logo an die VW-Fabrik gephotoshopped

Nebenan im jawl.net Blog hat Christian einen sehr lesenswerten Artikel dazu geschrieben, warum die Vorstellung, dass man mit der berühmten "Fünf Minuten Installation" von WordPress, ein paar Plugins und einem Theme quasi im Handumdrehen eine Webseite am Start hat, mit Vorsicht zu geniessen ist.

Dieser Artikel ist nicht für Entwickler / Programmiererinnen geschrieben. Ich hoffe eher, dass er von Bloggern oder Bloggerinnen oder welchen, die es werden wollen, gelesen wird. Und von Menschen, denen jemand gesagt hat, man können mit WordPress „mal eben“ eine Website

On Design Tools and Processes - Viljami Salminen

For the past year(s) I’ve been chasing for answers. Looking for new tools, thinking about design processes and figuring out what design really means to me. At times I’ve felt so disconnected with our pro­cesses that I’ve wondered if my career choice was right.
For a field rooted in the fine arts this period of change has been increasingly hard and is about to get even harder. We’ve moved away from designing static pages to creating digital systems of components, but we’ve done that mostly by using the same static design tools like Illustrator, Sketch, or even Figma. Tools

The design, the code, 1931 texts, the illustrations, and some photos are made by me.
