2050: The Fight For Earth - Bill McKibben | time.com

How the earth would look in 2050 if we solved climate change - What if the US came around and acted swiftly on climate change?

Simplicity (II) - Bastian Allgeier

React - Charlie Owen

Please read this post on why there's not only a problem with this popular JS framework, but how it actually hurts 'the web' (that was, as Charlie put it).

Ich habe Dick Dale zwei mal live erleben dürfen, 1997 in seiner Heimatstadt Boston, wo zum Schluss des Gigs noch seine Klassenlehrerin auf die Bühne eingeladen wurde, und vor ein paar Jahren in der Räucherkammer im Schlachthof Wiesbaden,...
