nothing of interest – only thoughts

TL;DR; Nothing interesting here. No informative things only a personal entry of things I thought I should get off my chest.   Long time no see. Since this past few months have been very busy and this blog is meant to be some kind of personal(lulz) diary – and nothing personally devastating happened – I have not […]

extremists everywhere

Happy new year to everyone out there! Regardless if you read my blog or not I wish you all the best for 2016. Now around new year the annual same mashup of posts and news is coming in as “A review of <insert topic> in 2016” and “X things to do in 2016 to be […]

the edge of perception

This post will be a rather philosophical one as I am a person that is thinking a lot. It is like a sickness that I have to think about everything. Ignorance is bliss I suppose. I want to talk about the limits of our world. I want to talk about the invisible borders of our life, […]

japan – it grows on you

Everything is cute, everything is fluffy and everything is awesooooome! Two days ago I bought the most awesome developer FPGA board there is. What I need it for you ask? I have no clue but I just had to have it. As I think it is impossible to get outside of Japan I went to […]

food uncertainty and being a lonely person

Today I felt lonely. For the first time in a few years I felt really lonely. Not necessarily in the sense that […]

“The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear…”

 passw0rds1 once again Once again the topic is passwords. I was just at a local phone store to ask for information. While I had to wait in line I did not stare at my smartphone screen but instead listened to the other people. It was only trivial things until the guy at the counter had […]

clGetContextInfo(&western_world) – a reality contained in the looking glass

This article finally leads back into the amazing world of techno related topics. I started thinking about contexts and how we only see the world through a looking glass a while back but until recently, when I started learning Japanese, I never attributed contexts much importance. I think it is important for everyone to keep in mind […]

want to be a better person? – get a baby!

I apologize in advance for this highly untechnical post but I just have to write about the experience I had because IMO it was highly funny. Yesterday I was walking around in the city to do some errands. I came to a crosswalk that just jumped to red on a very quiet street, so there […]

confidence boost! – how smart people do stupid things

I just finished reviewing papers for work and I have to say that was a very satisfying task. While it is tedious and annoying and you have to read a ton it showed me something very important about life. It gave me confidence in my own abilities. I was reviewing papers on topics that I […]

technology yay, people nay

I had an experience today which made me doubt humans. When you think about it it is a strange ambivalence of behavior that occurs in society. On the one hand social engineering is the new big thing with very promising results. Social engineering is based on trust and on the fact that people assume the […]
