It rained yesterday and through the night. Much needed and very welcome. This morning I took a walk, passing through clouds of strong scents of pine and dirt, and took a few photos (more can be seen in the photoblog):


The High-Tech Future of Travel – Popwuping
I’m not a skeptic but for me getting lost is part of the fun and the point of travel.

Agreed! Being lost is how I discovered the most interesting places!

Somewhere in between reality and fantasy lie the the photographic collages of imaginary buildings made from Filip’s copy & past photoshop skills.

Somebody who calls himself “liebert4evr” is mixing Guns and Nouveau Flamenco – I have such interesting fans!

Cute Lego video called Build Anything (Vimeo)

Marginal Revolution: Guess who is lobbying against marijuana legalization?
Seems pretty logical to me.

Time Magazine article on William Gibson and Zero History – which I am already re-reading. In fact I am currently switching back and forth between ZH and Pattern Recognition.

Speaking of ZH, here is that Air Penguin he wrote about. Beautiful, quicksilvery, and German.

Dictaphone Parcel (Vimeo) – I am with Music of Sound – no way they actually sent a $4,000 Nagra through the mail like that. Cool video though.

Welcome to the creepiness of social networking:

How I became a Foursquare cyberstalker | Technology | The Guardian
Louise is a complete stranger. Until 10 minutes ago when I discovered she was located within a mile of me, I didn’t even know of her existence. But equipped only with a smartphone and an increasingly popular social networking application called Foursquare, I have located her to within just a few square metres, accessed her Twitter account and conducted multiple cross-referenced Google searches using the personal details I have already managed to accrue about her from her online presence. In the short time it has taken me to walk to this pub in central London, I probably know more about her than if I’d spent an hour talking to her face-to-face. She doesn’t know it yet, but Louise is about to meet her new digital stalker.

Thanks for the link, Guy. I am even starting to use email less and less. Instead I am exchanging documents, text files, via DropBox.

    ottmar, I LOVED your rain videos yesterday.. I actually got caught out in it. my clothing was still wet when I left for home 5 hours later. I never realized how much sideways rain could hurt ;-)

    oh my.. liebert4ever is such a colorful person… the guns surprised me after the autographed CD he first presented. he has been heavily commenting on some of my concert photos.

    for me being lost challenges the mind to find its way.

    Love your links!
