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. Info on these was so rare back then,…


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…


1978: Hoimar von Dittfurth demonstriert den Treibhaus-Effekt.

… aber anscheinend hat niemand zugehört. Die Kommentare unter dem Youtube Video lassen ahnen, dass man auch 40 Jahre später nicht wirklich weiter gekommen ist.

Artists' Materials and Architects' Supplies - F.W. Devoe & Co., 1914

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…

The Press of the US - The Smiths*

Did I say that my twitter timeline is on fire? It most definitely is .@pattonoswalt made a tweet that showed Trump’s handwritten notes and the caption was simply “Morrissey voice:”. Needless to say, I got inspired and put WAY to much effort into this. pic.twitter.com/heOiOhl90P — RuPaul Giamatti (@BenJamminAsh) November 21, 2019 * not really


Sacha Baron Cohen at Never Is Now 2019

Please watch this. 25 minutes about the threat to democracies and the planet at large, by the "silicon six" and their Idiological Imperialism. All this hate and violence is being facilitated by a handful of internet companies that amount to the greatest propaganda machine in history (…) a sewer of hatred and bigottry and vile…


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…


I want no quid pro quo - Ramones*

My twitter timeline is on fire: somebody on twitter today: trump's weird hand-scrawled denial today sounds like a ramones song. me: pic.twitter.com/mynZjx0E0M — Alex Kliment (@SaoSasha) November 21, 2019 Background here. __ * not really
