Steve Jobs: Avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

»Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. [...]

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.«

Spiegel online frauenfeindlich?

Dem Spiegel macht es gerade so richtig viel Spaß, die Piraten zu bashen. Erst sucht man aus einem öffentlichen Protokoll eine kleine Diskussionspassage heraus und titelt ganz boulevardesk

Piraten legen los - mit Streit

und jetzt legt man mit Verweis auf nur eine Frau unter 15 Abgeordneten unter dem nicht weniger aufmerksamkeitsheischenden Titel

Jung, dynamisch - frauenfeindlich?

nach. Berthold Metz von hat sich mal die Mühe gemacht und nachgezählt:

»Was mich dann aber doch maßlos verwundert, ist ein Blick ins Impressum von Spiegel Online:

Unter den ersten Kategorien "Chefredakteur, Stellvertretende Chefredakteure, Mitglied der Chefredaktion, Leiter Bewegtbild, Chef vom Dienst, Chefreporter, Autor" sind 13 Personen gelistet, darunter nur eine Frau.
In "Berlin" finde ich 13 Personen aufgelistet, darunter nur eine Frau.
Unter "Volontäre" (das sind generell die, die für einen Hungerlohn ausgenutzt werden und denen man nur einen befristeten Vertrag geben muss, ich kenne einen Fall in meinem Bekanntenkreis) finde ich genau eine Person aufgelistet, es ist - eine Frau.«

HTML5/CSS3-Toolkit von Twitter. Inkl. Formularen, Tabellen pp.

Auf den ersten Blick beeindruckend vielseitig, recht leichtgewichtig, und abwärtskompatibel bis zum IE 7. Danke für den Hinweis an +Meinolf Droste

Google Sitelinks deutlich überarbeitet. Die gestern im offiziellen Google-Blog angekündigten Änderungen sind seit heute auch im deutschen Index sichtbar.

Unmittelbare Konsequenz: Der Treffer auf Position eins der Ergebnisseite nimmt, wenn Sitelinks angezeigt werden, ab sofort deutlich mehr Raum ein, so dass die ggf. konkurrierenden Treffer ab Position zwei nach unten verdrängt werden.

Interessantes Feature: Ähnliche Bilder mit Google Search suchen
Google Image Search: vanity search for photographers

Google has a fairly new feature that lets you drag and drop any image into the search box and it will find it and close derivatives all over the net. After accidentally stumbling over one of my pictures on a blog, I figured I would drop my five most popular flickr images in there to see if people adhere to the Creative Commons Attribution license that I use for all my pictures, and I have made some interesting observations.

For one, the pictures are everywhere, which is great because that was the whole point of using a creative commons license. They were used to illustrate anything from guides to quitting caffeine to Christian blog articles on how to win back your spouse. The attribution requirement was met by roughly half of the sites, which I suppose isn't such a bad ratio. Almost all the sites that appeared to be more reputable gave attribution, and the rest were either some high school kid's blog ramblings or Chinese sites, which seem to defy IP laws on principle.

FoxNews picked up one of the images and used an awkward crop of it in a number of articles. They did include the attribution, but then hundreds of other sites copied the picture straight from FoxNews, dropping the attribution in the process. Now there are a ton of awkwardly cropped versions around and nobody has any idea what the original looks like or where it is from, which is a bit frustrating. To avoid this, I recommend licensing your pictures under a No-Derivatives CC license, though that also prevents people from doing some fun things. Watermarks also help with the non-attribution, but that also means that big sites may refuse to use the picture altogether (I think many news sites have a policy on that).
