Grown up in Germany during the Cold War I was teached that Russians were always mostly the evil ones and people from the West are usually the “better ones”. I never believed it but… Continue reading The Great Game in Central Asia

United Kingdom

The Wikipedia page for UK starts with this sentence: The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom (UK) or Britain.

As I mentioned two weeks ago I became a kind of “partner happiness volunteer” in the Joomla project (CloudFest: Become a Partner for the Joomla Project and I’ll make you happy).

CloudFest: Become a Partner for the Joomla Project and I’ll make you happy

CloudFest, Europapark, Roller coaster

Next week I’m going to CloudFest.  CloudFest itself is not easy to describe. It is an event and the successor of the World Hosting Days. Thus a large part of the world’s hosting industry will be “there”. The first time I was there in 2016. I’m writing a weekly blog post for NovaTrend, a hosting company… Continue reading CloudFest: Become a Partner for the Joomla Project and I’ll make you happy

What I know so far is the wikipedia article about Ethereum, some content of the website of the Swiss foundation Ethereum.org and a few videos from 2014… Continue reading Building a Central Bank – Part 1

After being disappointed with so many dark dystopian Science Fiction stories he basically decided to make the future bright again,… Continue reading Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future
