My list of particularly interesting presentations (mostly for myself – disclaimer: I haven’t watched all of these presentations yet as I didn’t make it to Hamburg this year):

Aug 29, 2008: BlogCamp Switzerland 3.0 in Zurich

Note that this year’s Swiss BlogCamp, the BlogCamp Switzerland 3.0, will take place on the same date (August 29, 2008) as the Tag der Informatik (informatica08) and the tweakGrill, and at the same location (Technopark in Zurich), too! Of course, this is no coincidence :) No matter whether you’re a blogger or not (or plan to be, have been, are interested in the Swiss blogging scene, the web 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, whatever etc. ;): Be there, I’m sure it will be an interesting event, again! (And attending the “Tag der Informatik” is a point of honor anyway :)

(Bloggy Friday will start at 8 PM, guess where ;)

[UPDATE 20080802: I probably can’t be there due to military service :( At rather short notice as they managed to send the march order to an address that doesn’t exist. No comment.]

August 29, 2008: tweakGrill @ informatica08

The innovative guys from tweakfest.ch will present what they call The first digital BBQ in Switzerland, aka the tweakGrill. It will take place on August 29, 2008, starting at 6 PM on the Turbinenplatz (that’s Zurich’s biggest place (*cough*) right in front of the Technopark building (which some call the “Swiss Silicon Valley” ;) in Zurich-West/entertainment).

According to the newsletter they’ll have several multimedia performances, serve sausages from USB-Grills (I wonder how that will scale ;) and open source beer brought to you by [project 21].

KURSBUCH Glockenstrauch by Salome Rebekka In-Albon

Yesterday evening reminded me of how multifarious life is – much more than just facts and figures we tend to be snowed under with – and the importance and elegance of art. Splendid finish and promising beginning. A milestone. A rarity so far, watch out for the “KURSBUCH Glockenstrauch” by Salome Rebekka In-Albon:

Von den Wellen hin und her geschmissen schaukelte ich im Meer, von Land weit und breit keine Spur. Nicht mit einem Horn, nicht mit einer Leuchtpistole, mit einem leisen Wort nur, war ich schlagartig umgeben von Menschen. An Ort und Stelle, jawohl, mitten auf dem Meer, zimmerten sie in geschickter Teamarbeit ein solides Schiff. Durch Böen, begleitet von Wolkenbrüchen, von Sonnenstrahlen, mal Tiefgang, mal weniger, volle Kraft voraus, grobe und glatte See, aber zielstrebig dem Land entgegen. Zeit genug, ein Kursbuch zu führen.

As a spark, I’m proud of and thankful for being part of this great work and endeavor. Salutations to the “crew” and associates:

Salome (The captain), Johanna, Clemens, Megy, Markus, Toni, Max, Yvonne, Nora, Nicolas, Gertrud, Heidi, Magdalena and all those who couldn’t be there.

Spring, a wonderful time for art to blossom.
