Hi! I'm Jannis. (26, he/him, cis). I live in Heidelberg and work as a software engineer/SRE in Frankfurt am Main. I enjoy beautiful things. #introductions
COVID-19 vaccination, family
What intrigues me about this, though, is where this idea of »AstraZeneca is a second-class vaccine« comes from. I assume some media perpetuated it to get some clicks.
My impression is that this idea has spread through the population quite rapidly -- like a virus. Maybe it would be wise to counteract such ideas like viruses: Trace where it originated and contain every medium that spreads it.
COVID-19 vaccination, family
So my moms (both <65 and in priority-2-jobs in Baden-Wurttemberg) could both get an AstraZeneca shot now. But at least one of them doesn't want it (the other didn't say) because she heard »the Biontech vaccine is the good stuff, the AstraZeneca one is second-class« and now feels she's being treated like second-class by state politics -- mainly because she always felt misrepresented by politics.
pol. Universal Basic Income.
The countdown is running on the European Citizens Initiative for an Unconditional Basic Income.
The Corona Pandemic has shown us the cracks in the current system. Cracks through which many are slipping.
1 million signatures and quorum reached in at least 7 EU countries by 25.12.21 is the aim.
Thank you for your time.

Now it has been shipped.
Our coffee grinder (an Iberital Challenge that’s some eight, nine years old) is broken. (Or at least I assume it is. It doesn’t grind more than one portafilter before getting stuck and when I screw it open it smells funny.)
I’ve ordered a new one right away on Sunday, an Eureka, to which I really look forward to, but! It’s still not shipped!!
Or is it because I learned to read and write so early in my life (with 2 or 3 years) that I have a much stronger affinity to written communication than most?
Is this a generational thing? Am I too young to have internalized that this is the way we communicate in corporate hell? Does my parents' generation have phone sceptics like me (doubtful, since they had no real alternatives that were quite as quick)?
People expect to just be able to call one another out of the middle of nowhere. And the callee is expected to pick up, right? At least if they don't, the phone continues to make a very annoying sound for a very long period of time. (Of course, my smartphone can notify me in a less painful way, but still the stress of the urgent, time-limited notification remains.)
A notification even in the form of "I would like to speak to you in three minutes" would feel much less threatening to me.
Phones (the voice-communication device kind, not the multi-purpose pocket computer type) are really a strange kind of concept to me. The phone can ring at any moment, it usually makes a very shrill, unsettling sound, and there is no availability indicator to the calling side (apart from "line is busy").
I'm the guy who finds four-leaf clovers all the time.
