Citizenfour is available for free since may 13 and i believe everyone should have seen it. June is coming and the patriot act was the one who started all this. This doesn't sound very patriotic. I just see the point John Oliver has. It is all about dick pic's.

The John Olivier interview was AMAZING. I really love what he's doing with his new show, but I wonder if it's having an impact at all. Also, "Citizen Four" should be required watching for every American citizen, just like "Griftopia" by Matt Taibbi should be required reading.

The power of paper.

How much do you care about paper. How important is an award for you? I just assume - not much. If you take a look on "who" is getting an award they seem to be worthless. exept if you have to do some hiring or paperwork. Then they work like wonder because

1. nobody has the time to validate it or check the weight
2. nobody cares. Just need to sound good.
3. Everybody seems to need it. Like a hug.

When i started my visa process and resume it was clear i need awards now. Right now i'm designing an iOS app which will enter a couple of award competitions. Why? because it works better, is easier i don't have to argue with a jury about "bla bla that many android devices in the world" because the damn jury doesn't care. Agencies do that all the time. Products are designed to win the competition. Not to be a good product.

i'm wondering when +Google Design is starting to admit - giving out awards is important. Doesn't matter how useless they are. And doing "lobbyism" in design circles is important.

For me and my 30 day work visa (as german you have huge travel privileges in the US) i need an award. And now i finally get why everybody is interested in getting one because it has significant impact on your freedom. In my case i still don't care about awards i think its a waste of time. Well, i got first world problems because the last 2 years i never had to pitch a client. They just came. I don't know how.

thats award enough for myself. For the government its not. They need awards.

Got a new shelf in my living room. Books 10% , crafting materials and tools 80% and one box Christmas decoration.

Still waiting for the eBook boom. And no sorry, no TV, no xbox, or something similar.

Oh i'm jealous of these woman. Somehow. sometimes i ask my self - maybe i would have more money as Developer. Read their stories.

I cannot picture myself doing static tasks, i know enough and i can write enough markup to replace a couple of "engineers". In germany Woman in tech is already bad enough. I would be a terrible "creative" dev and i'm much better off as UX and UI, this is where my ability to think is unfolding. No thanks, writing code is okay from time to time but for earning money it is hell on earth. Include the harassment.

how do you manage it?

What is freedom:

- refuse to work in a room with 9 people in it. I just said no. Because i can.

- after 4 hours work, going home - working another 6 hours for another client.

- spending an awful lot of time on understanding bureaucracy. e.g. contracts. have to read them all the time and i do it.

- decide to spend an hour in my garden and drink a little sun. Just because i need it.

- having enough money for organic, and local food.

- having no money because you missmanaged something

- able to decide what you want to do

- being able to say no.

Light is raising funds for The Light Phone on Kickstarter! A credit card-sized cell phone designed to be used as little as possible. The Light Phone is your phone away from phone.

transparent or not, the size is a selling point and the resource friendliness too. i'm very tempted. This is exactly what i would do with cars too. Keep the safety and kick out all the fancy glitter shit and make it electric.

Also, eigentlich soll man ja die kleinen Läden unterstützen. Mein Hercules Trekking Fahrrad ist nichts besonderes aber nachdem ich mit zwei kleinen Läden so dermaßen schlecht beraten wurde und die Inspektion plus Gangschaltung einstellen 4mal teurer war um dann auch noch nach 2 wochen gar nicht mehr zu gehen... ...da geh ich jetzt immer wieder zu stadler. Mein eher bescheidenes Rad wird dort regelmäßig gewartet, die Beratung ist sehr gut und transparent die Mitarbeiter seit Jahren die selben. Wer sein Rad sauber hinbringt tut dem Mechaniker einen gefallen und wird nicht nur freundlich bedient sondern auch zügig, termingerecht und zuverlässig.

Das essen war wie immer gut, die unfreundlichkeit hat mir aber mein geburtstagsessen ziemlich verdorben. Auch mit freundlichkeit und lob für das essen hat sich die bedienung nicjt dazubherabgelassen freundlich zu sein. Trinkgeld gabs trotzdem weil die kollegen ja nett sind

Ich habe jetzt schon 3 Artikel neu gekauft oder umgetauscht weil mir nicht gesagt wurde das es auch eine bessere option gibt. Dazu kommt das es vollkommen überteuert ist. Speedo verkauft seine wahre für 10 € hingegen dieser laden für 23 € Ich unterstütze den Einzelhandel gern gegen eine freundliche und kompetente Beratung sowie auswahl und anprobe. Hier jedoch wurde ich schon dreimal "zum kauf beraten"

Ich finde das Museum ist wunderschön gestaltet. Ein bisschen voll sogar. Ich wünschte man könnte um mehr Fahrzeuge ganz herum laufen aber es gibt viel zu kucken.

Der Service was sehr nett. Was ich übel nehme ist die ansage "dann erwarte ich aber 20 prozent trinkgeld". Das essen war weniger als gut. mehr als 10 € für vertrocknete nudeltaschen. Dann klebt der service ständing und möchte dauernd neue bestellungen aufnehmen schafft es aber nicht den espresso zum dessert zu bringen. kurz und gut, wer zuviel geld hat und nichts mehr schmeckt der kann gern dort essen gehen.

Kompetente und ehrliche Beratung. Kein schnickschnack nichts aufgeschwatzt und genau hingeschaut. Mit ein paar guten tips bin ich auch nach hause gegangen. Sehr zu empfehlen.
