Two years ago I coded up a small python model to simulate the world cup. The results back then were more or line with what the general predictions were; Brazil to win. I updated the model for the Euro 2016 tournament. My data source for matches had gone, so I had to adjust that and I also ...

Let's start with the news. Tonja and me are moving to Thailand. We don't know yet for how long or exactly where we'll live, but if everything works out with the visa, we should be living in Bangkok from January 2016 on. Those who know us a little might suspect this is because of the weather or ...

Google Wallet nee Checkout has suspended my account. It didn't tell me of course, just says transaction failed, try again in 24 hours. Only when you try to update the credit card does it say that I need to proof who I am by uploading a variety of documents. Adding another credit card gives the same result, so it seems my account is suspended, not my card.

What fraud detection algorithm thinks it is plausible that I got an account 9 years ago, spend thousands of dollars and now have gone rogue trying to buy 10 dollars in credit for making phone calls from hangouts?

What an awesome surprise it was!  I am only sad that you didn't get to see Randy, Gabor, Andrew, Brandon, Jochen, Greg and ACD at the shindig.  It was a happy Sydney and Zurich reunion.

We all know that the pc market is shrinking and that people are moving en masse to mobile. So what's going on here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usage_share_of_web_browsers#StatCounter_.28July_2008_to_present.29

In the last half year mobile web use seems to have been flat. Android's market share vs iOS hasn't shifted much either. Are people happy to use the facebook app on their devices and stay away from the scary web out there?

Growing up in the Netherlands I never considered that our system for street addresses wasn't obvious and therefore universal. Street , Postal code, City, Country. How else would you do it? It turns out there are many ways. Putting the house number before the street actually is more consistent.

A Map of Europe according to Euro Vision

Euro Vision 2014 was yesterday. To even a casual observer it seems pretty clear that neighbouring or otherwise related countries tend to vote for each other. To visualise this, I took the voting records of the last 10 Euro Vision contests and created the map below where the distance between two countries corresponds to how likely it is that these two countries vote for each other. The size of the countries indicates the total number of votes over those ten years.

There's a few clear clusters - Eastern Europe, The Nordic Countries and the Balkans are the most pronounced. Central European countries seems a bit torn between these, as are the Baltics. Spain and Portugal aren't much connected, just with themselves.

It also suggests that Austria, this years winner, would do better in general if they would align themselves more.

This is the place to bring your friends if you want them to experience that distinct type of rudeness you get from time to time in Berlin. It was getting late and we asked for the bill but were pretty much ignored. Then at exactly 1AM the entire staff set down at the bar and started smoking. Ignored and now being smoked at we decided to wait outside for the bill. That did draw their attention and we were called some names. We had the money ready but were told never to come back. Not that there was much of a risk of that of course.
