One of the most interesting articles I've read in quite a while. Sleep deprivation is one of the biggest health problems at this time in history - and the most common cause is not excessive use of technology but lousy jobs and/or lousy living conditions
 
Sleep has its own caste system.
Health researchers are underscoring the connection between sleep, work, and povertyand the immense value of sleeping in.

Er der nogen, der ved, om der er en eller anden real-life forbindelse? Kender Gintberg Brad Bird eller nogen hos Pixar? Eller er han ganske enkelt Mr. Incredible?

One of Anthony Mann's first westerns. It was movies such as this one that paved the way for his famous collaboration with James Stewart.

I deeply admire lots of things about Google Photos and I can't see myself using another service - but there are several things I hate with a vengeance. First and foremost the fact that I have hundreds of auto-generated albums whose title is simply a date. It's completely meaningless for me to have my images grouped like that and it makes it almost impossible to navigate my albums

Auf Widersehen, Günther Grass. A great author has left us. If you haven't read Die Blechtrommel (The Tin Drum) yet, there's a fine occasion now. An extremely powerful story about Germany in the 40's and 50's. The movie is fine - but please consider reading the book as well!

A fine writer's passing... I cannot get dulled by his narrative style and imagery. I don't think I managed to read "The Tin Drum", but saw the movie rendition, plus an article Mr. Grass himself authored in The New Yorker ("How I Spent the War").

Introduction
Trained as a philosopher. Live with my two kids, Sikker and Kirstine, in Copenhagen, Denmark. 

I'm particularly interested in:

- Theories about happiness and the good life - first and foremost the ancient Greek and Roman eudamonistic tradition as we know it from the writings of Plato, Aristotle and the Stoics.

- Human beings as social/political animals

- How we understand the life we live through the stories we tell

- Philosophical counseling

Apart from my philosophical interests, I'm interested in technology as a user who is very particular about his tools. Because of this, I occasionally write about Android phones and tablets and Chrome OS, Google+ and Blogger

Lots of delicious stuff in very lovely surroundings - but extremely expensive! 45 DKK for one very small cup of chai? And 35 DKK for a cookie? I think not. Not recommended because of the prizes
