Wie es aussieht wird es auch dieses Jahr wieder ein kleines im geben. 😍

Voraussichtlicher Termin 1. - 4. September 2022

The 1960s was wild and never was music that fat again. Perfect start in the weekend.

The music is Quincy Jones - Soul Bossa Nova

Who ever mentions Austin Powers -> OUT!

Behind the scenes of #2001 by Stanley Kubrick. His vision of a portable computer in 1968. Unfortunately it didn't make it into the movie. He decided to use tablets instead.

If you can’t take the heat, get in The Cave. Seriously, the air con is glorious!
This weekend you can get hands-on with the VecFever and see a Vectrex do things you never thought possible.

Ok, I now have permission to talk about this project in full and in public. I'm working with Alan Kay to build six replicas* of a Xerox PARC Alto display for use in a museum exhibit**. Visitors will see a real Alto and then walk over to one of the replicas to futz with Smalltalk '78***.
Here's a nice writeup of a different project that rejuvenated an actual Alto.

Carl Sagan testified before Congress in 1985 on climate change. Can you imagine if they had listened to him?

Wie? Du hast noch keine Karte für unser kleines, gemütliches Camp im vogtländischem September? Dann aber nichts wie ran an den Ticketshop und auf ein paar schöne Tage am Stausee #Pöhl.

There is no camp – We stick together!

@LittleAlex
reading that thread to the end: You're basically screwed unless you manage to make a significant splash on social media.

So exercising your rights is about to become a popularity contest? Bright future.

You know all those roombas that used 3D laser scanners to map your rooms to better vacuum?

Well they belong to Amazon now.
