Vox Pop - The Story of Dick Denney and the AC30 amp


Keep on Posting in the Free Web

The news of the shut-down of one of (my) oldest got-to places on the web, the "Fender Discussion Pages", has made me think, again, about how the web has changed. Hey Hey, my my content on the web will never die… I am a strong advocat for 'owning your content' and having a personal web…


RIP Fenderforum

The Fender Discussion Pages have shut down right now, after being online for 20+ years. This forum, not affiliated with the official Fender brand, was active since 1999 and one of my main sources when I got my first Fender Offset Guitar, a Jaguar, around that time.

BahnMining - David Kriesel @36c3, Leipzig 2019

Extrem sehenswerter Statistik-Vortrag zu einer Auswertung der Daten, die David Kriesel knapp ein Jahr lang aus den Fahrplan- und Änderungs-APIs der Deutschen Bahn gesammelt hat. Direktlink | Folien etc Aber fast noch sehens- und bedenkenswerter sind seine Worte zum Abschluss der Vortrags und dem Ausklang der Dekade (ab Minute 47:00): [die maßgebliche gesellschatliche Veränderung der…

Ich habe ja eine große Schwäche für alles, was mit Grafik zu tun hat. Stifte, Lineale, Schablonen, Messscheiben, Papier, Pinsel - in einem Schreibwaren- oder Künstlerbedarfsladen darf man mich nicht alleine lassen, sonst werden alle Taschen vollgestopft :-) Hier ist Zeichenbedarfporno aus dem Jahr 1914: Ein Katalog der damals schon ältesten Zeichenbedarf-Ladens der Welt (nach…


Cybertruck in CSS

This morning, my timeline on Twitter was full of pictures and remarks about Tesla's new "Cybertruck" with the futuristic and plain look, brutal even. One of the first things that came to my under-coffeed mind then was "hm, this looks so angular, this was maybe designed with CSS?" As one does, a tweet followed: "css…


The Layers Of The Web

Jeremy Keith's talk at Beyond Tellerrand Berlin 2019 about the "layers of the web" (be sure to watch this!) inspired me to a quick css animation experiment on codepen: See the Pen Web Layers Of Pace by Tom (@webrocker) on CodePen. Be sure to look at it in the full screen mode, the thing currently…

Escaping The Social Media Trap - Kiki Thaerigen

Social Media wants your constant attention. Social Media wants your time. Social Media is stealing your time, time you could better be using for your creative work and/or well-being. But Social Media also today is the way to advertise and display said work, and possibly get feedback, recognition even. And once you have kind of…
