Thanks to for the inspiration to take my "trampsport" to the next level with his impressive 36hour Belgium - Moldova trips.
Successful hitch hiking is not about refusing to have goals and taking whatever ride comes your way; it's about getting from Point A to Point B on schedule and on budget. If you want to be spontaneous and change your schedule and destination (which you can do with any mode of transportation and has nothing to do with hitch hiking) you'll still want to know how to get there and get home again efficiently.
to interact -> interactive -> interactivity
to resist -> resistive -> resistance
to object -> objective -> objectivity (except the definitions don't match)
to state -> stated -> statement
Other than my stopover in Gießen that is essentially what I did except I took a ride to Aurich and hitch hiked through the villages to my final destination outside of Emden as it was Christmas and I had plenty of daylight to facilitate this. I beat the ICE from Gießen to Emden by more than an hour.
5.5 years later I get an email from OLPC and this is what they have to say about the project I helped them do:
"...do not waste another penny or minute buying more XO Laptops. They were cutting edge in 2007. They were still cool in 2009. But today the hardware looks dated and without a touchscreen, oh so limiting.
Worse, the XO Laptop never came with any decent software (OS or applications) or content - you always had to hand code your own programs and go begging for ebooks and reference materials."
Not sure what made them think bashing their own work was a good idea. And their new product is basically just an android tablet...
Speaking of which: I turned an android tablet into a learning tool for Carina's little sister last week (hey, Pascal remind Ulrike to do her vocabulary practice please). With just a little bit of prodding she gets just as wrapped up in studying english vocabulary as she does with the top free games on the android market.
