Great to see more touristic information on Ghent!
The second in our series of guides to Europe’s alt cities takes us to Ghent - a medieval masterpiece on the surface, but bang up to date with its underground music scene, cutting-edge design and pioneering sustainable projects. Local creatives reveal their highlights

You know you can do this with your google account as well? I am not letting anyone have access to anything when I die. I will come back as a poltergeist if anyone tries to access my accounts, I swear :-)

Een symfonisch orkest op een dansfestival: een experiment van het genre waarvoor u niet gearresteerd wordt, maar waarna u zich evenzeer in hoge, héél hoge sferen waant.

Onze stroomfactuur wordt binnenkort 8 procent duurder. Dat hebben we te danken aan een nieuwe energieheffing die Vlaams energieminister Turtelboom (Open VLD) vorige week aankondigde. De ‘Turteltaks’ moet dienen om een schuldenberg van 2 miljard euro weg te werken bij de distributienetbeheerders Eandis en Infrax. Dat is allerminst rechtvaardig.

"...hyperlinks aren’t just the skeleton of the web: They are its eyes, a path to its soul. And a blind webpage, one without hyperlinks, can’t look or gaze at another webpage — and this has serious consequences for the dynamics of power on the web."

Take back the web from closed environments like Facebook and Google+. Hyperlinks should be free!
The rich, diverse, free web that I loved — and spent years in an Iranian jail for — is dying. Why is nobody stopping it?

Our favorite Chinese restaurant in Düsseldorf. We go eat out there about twice a month and we haven't been disappointed once. Great selection and very good kitchen. Maybe except for that one time when there weren't any seats left. So we got take-away instead. Highly recommendable.
