The most beautiful Love Song

This is – IMHO – really the most beautiful and romantic love-song a nerd can sing to his girl-friend. I still watch TBBT every week, but unfortunately the episodes are not as good, funny, or at least “nerdy” anymore as they used to be, especially in the second and third season. The girls in the […]

Epic Rap Battle: Nerd vs. Geek

More Online Courses for Independent Learning.

This week on FaceBook via FreeYourKids: MIT Open CourseWare publishes virtually all of its courses online for free. Not entirely new, but still interesting as another option for independent learning. “The idea is simple: to publish all of our course materials online and make them widely available to everyone.” Dick K.P. Yue, Professor, MIT School […]

Massive Open Online Courses

Here is an interesting infographic about MOOCs: Massive Open Online Classes. I am a teacher myself, but I know that most of my students learn a lot from YouTube videos, where people explain how they play a certain song on their guitar or keyboard. So, I jumped on the bandwagon and put some instruction videos […]

Geek Travel

This could be a great website and it really was an eye-opener to me. “Wanderlust for Geeks” – what a great tagline!. Planning my vacation is not in my system, and I’m happy to have a significant other who is doing all the work and drags me away from my computer screen now and then […]

Geek or Nerd? Again that boring discussion, but with nice infographics

I have discussed the subject before on this weblog, but it still is an interesting point of blogging: what is the difference between a geek and a nerd? A new infographic, provided by Masters in IT, has been recycled around the internet recently, so let me jump on the bandwagon too and copy-paste it here. […]

Nerds & Geeks: An Etiological History and its Psychosocial Implications

Again some discussion about the Geek-Nerd dichotomy. Some earlier post on this subject are here and, especially, here on this blog. Now the WikiVersity has started a serious research page on the subject: What is a nerd? What is the spectrum of “nerd-ness”? What are the core nerd personality traits? How did this identity originate? […]

  • Kuehleborn’s Unfathomable Thoughts

    Shih was the opposite of facts and raw information; shih was the elegance of knowledge, the insight and skill to organize knowledge into meaningful patterns. As an artist chooses colours or light to make her pictures, a master of shih chooses textures of knowledge - various ideas, myths, abstractions, and theories - to create a way of seeing the world. The aesthetics and beauty of knowledge - this was shih. - David Zindell, The Broken God, 1993

    The attitude thing is about flexibility, portability, creativity, sociability and jamming (ran out of suitable “ity” words!). It's about improvising – in the practical and musical senses of the word; not getting tangled in boundaries and the “right” way to do things. Definitely the only way to travel. - Martin Delaney – “Laptop Music”
