Upping my personal knowledge management game by reading Maeda's Simplicity, and Ahrens' Das Zettelkastenprinzip.

We read books to find out who we are. What other people, real or imaginary, do and think and feel... is an essential guide to our understanding of what we ourselves are and may become. - Ursula K. Le Guin

Toaster, Wasserkocher und Smartphones landen schnell im Müll. Nun meldet sich bei vielen das schlechte Gewissen – und Reparieren kommt wieder in Mode.

Time to party with reading manuals for my devices.

There are two types of friends, related to technology:

the second type is the type you tell about some tech, which you then have to kiss goodbye to a few months later, because it becomes unusable.

Man kann einander beobachten und seine transaktionalen Spiele spielen, und reagieren und reagieren und reagieren.

Man kann aber auch seinen Laptopbildschirm kalibrieren, weil man das geil findet, und mit diesem Status andere, die das auch geil finden, wissen lassen, dass man jemand ist, der es geil findet, seinen Laptopbildschirm zu kalibrieren und es andere wissen zu lassen, die das geil finden.

Maybe a cheesey request - but I'm helping our office management to plan a team event. I am looking for an art teacher to teach our team (around 11 people) to paint.

The task would be to come to our office in #Berlin for ~4hrs, provide art supplies and guidance for #painting self portraits together. The teacher needs to provide an invoice that the company can use to pay for the event. Dates and budget will be worked out together.

If you know someone who might be interested please let me know!

This book was published in 2020, so yeah, keep your identical eggs in many baskets

Started studying the Atlas of Digital Architecture, and by chapter 01, I ran into the first problem: everything not saved will be deleted forever.

In this case, I had to surf for Weisberg's "The Engineering Design Revolution" because the hosting website cadhistory.net went kaputt.

I think Plato and Wittgenstein were philosophers. I'm not convinced anyone else was or is.
Too many people treat excellence of expertise like an umbrella under which they confusedly believe to stand under, because their theory of mind fails where it counts: imagination. So they imagine themselves philosophers, much in the same way they fancy themselves therapists when they attend therapy for their own betterment, because they think that they understand what they can read and vice versa.

There is a time and a place for rock and metal music.
In my life, both belong to the past, and only cause misery in the present.

I've been walking 10,000 steps each day recently, for losing weight.
Also, I have been attending evening seminars by my alma mater about mindfulness in graphic design study. Somewhere in the overlapping space between these two habits, I have found that I carry a lot of second-hand angst, mostly created and maintained by strangers. I've also found that my taste in music isn't what I've been listening to while walking or jogging—I just thought it was. In reality, I like classical music.
