Repetitive task-management

I found an old but nice post about Geeks and repetitive tasks by Jon Udell. It starts with quoting a Google+ post by Bruno Oliveira. The other day Tim Bray tweeted a Google+ item entitled Geeks and repetitive tasks along with the comment: “Geeks win, eventually.” Here’s the chart posted on Google+ by Bruno Oliveira: […]

The Fiction to Reality Timeline.

Via: Hashem AL-ghaili


The eighth edition of the GOGBOT Festival takes place from the 8th to 11th of September 2011 in the centre of Enschede. This annual festival for music, art and technology is organised by Planetart. The program looks very interesting with again a lot of transhumanistic influences, although maybe not as much as last year, when […]

Geek Stuff

This is a kind of “What’s in my Bag?”- post. Tonight I’ve quickmarked some of my gadgets for the Tales of Things-project. My E-Reader (I wrote about that on my RL-Blog in Dutch), my LiveScribe-smartpen, my Samson Go-Mic, my external HDD and my HTC Desire. After labeling them I uploaded the tales to the Tales […]

Bespin: web-based text editor in the cloud

Cloud computing: I wrote about it in another post. Now there is Bespin, an extensible, web-based text editor. Bespin proposes an open extensible web-based framework for code editing that aims to increase developer productivity, enable compelling user experiences, and promote the use of open standards. It is still in the Mozilla Labs, but it might […]

Twine and Web 3.0

The always interesting “Science and Reason” website by Charles Daney pointed me to Twine, a new bookmarking service, like Delicious, but with some social networking features. A few months ago I had transferred my Delicious Bookmarks to Evernote, a great online notebook application, but now I think my precious time will have to walk a […]

Juice firefox add-on

A great new firefox-add-on is Juice: Discover. Organize. Share. Juice is an intelligent discovery engine that integrates seamlessly with your browser. Highlight and move a chunk of text, and Juice directly delivers a set of rich, relevant content to you. As you see on the screenshot I’ve selected from my own recent blogpost on the […]

Digital Transvaal

Since I stumbled on the Digital Urban website, two weeks ago, I wanted to make an “Urban” movie myself. So last week, after my workday, I did a cycling tour through the Transvaal district of The Hague, the city where I live, to make my first movie. The reason why I chose Transvaal is because […]

Genetic breakthrough supercharges immunity to flu and other viruses

From: Eurekalert: Genetic breakthrough supercharges immunity to flu and other viruses: Viruses are sub-microscopic infectious agents which can reproduce only by hijacking a cell’s reproductive machinery, a process that usually leads to disease and even the death of the host organism. Interferon, in particular the type 1 interferons (IFN-? and IFN-?) suppress virus propagation. Production […]


Wired Magazine has now the Geekipedia; “people, places and trends you need to know now”!. Geek? Wired has a reputation as would-be geek/cyberpunk/futurist magazine, but of course it never hurts to give them a second chance and figure out if they’ve learned their lesson. So I read the article on “Futurism”: Futurists enjoy the ultimate job […]

  • 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”
