Linuxtag

Currently, the Linuxtag is in Berlin (near Funkturm, Deutschland Hallen, right next to it). We managed to go yesterday for a bit, went around the booths for a bit and then tried to go for one of the free lectures.

Trying to find the lecture turned out to be a bit of a hassle. The people at the site didn’t know where anything is at and the signs were screwed up (“running in a circle”). Finally found it, but then sitting there and looking at a tiny projector screen without wifi made it seem like the economy version of the lectures. Let’s hope that the people who paid 600 EUR per day had more fun. (Note: sarcasm)

Linuxtag runs until Saturday, check this link for tomorrow’s schedule:

Es war mir schon immer klar, dass (auch) alle Münchner, am liebsten in Berlin wohnen.

Coming up in July: Dubstep in Berghain

ED868CA3-3BB3-4CDB-92FA-7B4736068837.jpeg

Berghain will become a dubstep heaven for one Friday, 11th of July. I’m already very excited because this is one of my favorite spots here in Berlin. It has got just about every feature I like in clubs: it is located in a nice industrial building, there’s great crowd and spectacular sound system by Funktion One. Last Saturday over there was great but I guess this will be a night from another planet. Mala of the Digital Mystikz fame (+ Shackleton, Appleblim, Distance and Scuba) will definitely go deep here. One thing is not for sure: how many of the dubstep heads will get in because of the now-and-then-selective door policy? I think it won’t be a problem but I think it’s better to be there on time when these dudes play.

I’m still not the biggest fan of the Berlin nightlife rhythm which requires me to stay up until the sun is already high up on the sky. But there’s so many good nights to go out that I’ve learned to take that disco nap in the early evening to get energized. But to say it clearly at least once: this night is going to be great.

An oldie but goldie from 2000. The area around Rosenthaler Strasse (which is the street he is dancing on) looks pretty different nowadays.

Chrome on Saarbrücker Strasse

Chrome on Saarbrücker Strasse
As I was walking to Alexanderplatz to catch the S-Bahn to Warschauer Strasse on Sunday morning, I noticed that my closest street corner had been freshly painted. FLS crew had done a nice job by getting rid of the tired old murals and now the wall looks shiny and neat. The rest of this wall can be found here.
But the question remains: what’s your favorite color? Mine is chrome and there’s no doubt about that.
