We’re on PEI, the Gotland of Canada. We’re going to this unconference. Lots of things have changed in the interim since my last visit. Most things stay the same. Vegan places to eat: at least two cafés with food in them. One of them was closed for renovations, so I got to hear about the […]
A strong expression of Malmö Spirit: a passionate article about the Øresund Bridge.
Stendhal syndrome, Stendhal’s syndrome, hyperkulturemia, or Florence syndrome is a psychosomatic disorder that causes rapid heartbeat, dizziness, fainting, confusion and even hallucinations when an individual is exposed to an experience of great personal significance, particularly viewing art. We did three museums in one day. That’s really pushing it. But we stayed ahead of the above […]
Amsterdam in harsh, punishing sunlight. A pre-cold is threatening my weekend, reminding me of bodily frailty, as I and my companion trudge through cobbled streets fraught with traffic peril from onrushing bikes, their bike bells a-clanging. The street scenes in the city center were the ones I’d been told to expect: tourists toting tourist gear, […]

To get your own allotment plot in MalmÃ¶, get in line at the municipality’s website. It costs between 450-650 SEK for a year. This is […]
A summer’s rainy morning in MalmÃ¶. I’ve just hopped off the morning train from Copenhagen, clutching a crumpled paper that I just finished. I got wind of it through the NoSQL Summer reading club’s MalmÃ¶ instance. On the way into the office, I saw my FOSS friend T, waiting for a car. Handing him the […]
I can not attend this awesome meetup on Saturday, May 22. You have to go. OK? dojo.beer(“Copenhagen”);
Kiswahili (SW) Language Pack, an add-on for Firefox. A while ago I joined a Tanzanian mailing list called eThinkTank Tanzania (no longer online; 2018 update), which sports 1200 subscribers. It’s my source of cool East African IT news. I’ll try to republish good stuff here, and in my Delicious bookmarks feed. Some stories need some […]
