Ships Log, Stardate 20100630. I’ve moved to the big city! It’s hot, it’s active, it’s busy, it’s different — updates coming soon..

KAT / SIT Update

Date:
2010/06/24

Just did a variation on the Kat Poster, changing the sign to Sit. It went to those very nice guys at a design atelier called »SIT Designbureau« in the center of Linz, where I was stationed for a few months in 2010. See more here.

Oh it’s just so nice here! But soon I’ll leave this beautiful place in favour of a big big town… I took this picture recently when walking my parent’s dog out. Note the cattle!

Oh yes, the worldcup is so much fun! But instead of having just one favourite team, its even more fun to have a favourite team (or even a preferred result) for each and every game! So Alexandra and I decided to bet on each game. We set up a google spreadsheet (google docs are awesome anyway) and a simple rule: 1 Point for guessing right the winner or a draw, 3 Points for getting the result right. We just have to fill in our bets and a cool formula does the rest. Click the image for full-size view and formula.

Risks of Emerging Technology

Date:
2010/06/03

To be honest, I am not a particular fan of politically or morally motivated films or documentaries. But this one, done by Alexander Piringer is really worth taking a look at. It conveyes a proper amount of information, stays quite objective (or maybe reflects my own opinion just right, hehe), includes a chronicle of sci-fi-classics (!!!), and is really nicely done, especially in consideration of the fact that it was a two man show (narrator: Remo Rauscher) without any budget at all. Fun to watch!

That’s truly a motto:
