Colombia muchachas

I’ve had an insane past month. Two large international trip back to back = not the wisest idea. But one was for work, and one was for a wedding of a fantastically good pair of friends. What can I say? I’m a glutton for airport punishment and passport stampage.

I’m going to post shortly with more detailed videos and such, but for now relish in the two I’ve achieved in the past few days just compiling some HD video footage I took with my new Canon Powershot SD780IS camera.

Day 3 at FMX

May 7, 2009 at 12:28 pm (culture, Europe, nerd, work)

So I’m writing from the FMX T-Mobile lounge place. Basically, it’s a pimped out place to surf the net free. Man, why don’t we just free web ALL THE TIME. It ought to be like water…wait, we pay for that.

at FMX

Last night I had an invite to the infamous FMX Speakers dinner and it was pretty neato. I feel so stinkin’ handicapped with no iPhone GPS and a zillion places named “Strasse” in Stuttgart. It took 4 reasonably intelligent adults to find the restaurant roughly 5 blocks away … 30 minutes. And one of us was 6’6″ … no excuse. Richard, you ought to be able to see above the clouds and navigate.

Anyhow, I’ve been doing some live recording of our presentations and posting them to the site. Here is a link to the work blog if you care to see some nerd vidz.

ich bin back

May 3, 2009 at 1:26 am (culture, Europe, tech)

I’m back in Stuttgart, Germany for the FMX Conference this year. And having been able to come once, go home, then come back again … I’ve found a whole new slew of patterns and interesting things about Germany and Europe.

Here’s a small list, and I’ve been here for only 5 hours

  1. taking Swiss Air to go anywhere is much like a journey to Rivendell. Only, there’s really suprisingly  with no leg room.
  2. All serious Germans must wear the tiniest modern glasses barely covering their pupils. This includes children.
  3. If you live in Europe, your mobile phone number consists of 22 digits , roughly (WTF???).
  4. Germans actually sweat chocolate, true fact.

Oh man, I’m so friggin’ jet lag. I really need to get to bed again as it’s 3am my time.. It’s gonna be a long week, so I gotta spare the energy tonight.

oh look, Leicas I found while strolling around the Schloss… 🙂
