“In a yet-unpublished thousand-word manifesto…”

We – as in the collective German “We” – have to stop being such assholes.

The Greece/Eurocrisis could have been the moment to show how Europe works together to make it a better place for all citizens. Instead, our politicians had to bully everybody into submission.

I have only seen one article about the growing right-wing terrorism in the media – an op-ed by “that internet guy with the hair.”

WTF, Munich?

It might be a good idea to let gay people marry, too. If your only reason against something is that you don’t like it, you are an asshole.

I’m kidding, of course. It is a good article.

“Business Insider agrees.” is usually a pretty good argument that something is wrong.

This is just me, trying to post to Twitter through Brid.gy. If this isn’t working, it is completely my fault.

I played around with a text messaging API yesterday. I know some people think it might be the future – because so many people use messengers these days – but I am not convinced. It feels to much like those terrible phone hotline “menus”

If you are in utter despair because you have been using this menu für half an hour, press 8.

Meanwhile I heard that the new version of Windows is out today. Great. Another operating system I will have to guess how it works when someone in my family has problems with all those search bars in their browser.

So basic.

I just got an email from Amazon, telling me that they’ll now be sending me booze with Prime. That can’t end well.

Weekend in Cologne – done. (Ish. Still need to take a train.)

Yesterday we discovered Periscope and spent almost all evening projecting random people at the wall via AirPlay. It is amazing that this can be fun.
Slightly tempted to start my career as a life-streamer, but I am sure that I will be able to fight this temptation without much effort.

Now sitting at the train station, writing this article, in a misguided attempt to look as if I am one of those people who travel and are productive. Later I will look at gifs of baby animals again.
