Current status: After CC Global Summit in Toronto and Wikimedia Conference in Berlin, I feel inspired and incredibly tired at the same time.

"You’re in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down, and you see a tortoise, crawling toward you. You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can’t, not without your help. But you’re not helping. Why is that?"

Selecting the right stickers is an important part of the installation process for a new laptop.

So, I watched Ready Player One. It is a movie for boys and it is all about regressive nostalgia. A love story was invented especially for the movie. The social criticism that was slightly more visible in the book was watered down to a point where it was barely noticeable. The story is roughly similar to the book and all the names of the characters are there, but that's it, lots of details were new or left out. Visually, it's stunning. Best enjoyed with popcorn.

What are good things to do in Toronto?

So I will be in Toronto next week for the CC Global Summit. Already excited.

There is a special kind of being tired that hits you like a truck come Friday.

Ich denke darüber nach, mir ein Spielzeug zu kaufen, nur zum Spaß. Entweder ein Notebook für Linux und NetBSD oder Nintendo 2DS. Kann mich nicht entscheiden. Was ist besser?

If you are interested at all in the game of Go or Artificial Intelligence or both and you get a chance to watch the the documentary AlphaGo (on Netflix or elsewhere), you should see it. It's about human passion and intelligence, awesome research, and asking fundamental questions. Parts of it shook me emotionally. alphagomovie.com/

Akkus leer, körperlich und geistig. Schwere Müdigkeit legte sich über mich dieses Wochenende. :)

Mal wieder bloggen im neuen Jahr. Auch wenn es nur ein paar Links sind, aber die fand ich bemerkenswert. blog.johl.io/blog/2018/01/12/l
