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.

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.

Stuttgart, Day 2

May 3, 2009 at 2:18 pm (Europe, nerd, video, weekends) (, , )

So, this is what I look like after a two hour nap. You know, the one that’s supposed to be only 30 minutes so that you can eventually get used to the time change.

Yeahhhh, that didn’t happen. Now I’m up and need a shower and will be grossly excited to see Janet and Jeff as they’re coming in from London as I type.
Yay, I get to hang with people (exlamation mark). Sorry, I have no exclamation function on my keyboard. I just learned this yesterday. Thanks Apple.

Anyhow, here’s something far more interesting, my little video I made from my long bike ride this morning. Sunday is DEAD in Germany in terms of anything to do except be forced to hang with family. However, this is a cool thing because the city becomes soooo quiet. I’ve made an edit of my pics and mini-vids and added exciting music to make it all seem way cooler for your eyes. Actually, I’ve been somewhat addicted to the track I used on this.

Enjoy <exclamation mark>

5. German’s make and sell the worlds most leading fashionable orthopedic shoes. I swear that’s all I see on the streets. What’s with that? Are they all hurting from walking? My mom would love this place.

PS: The hair may be terrible, but I got some awesome hipster chick bruises somehow from today’s bike ride. sweet.

Design Douche

April 28, 2009 at 5:07 pm (nerd, tech, video)

John Courte and I found this video on Gizmodo the other day, while I was trying to find some wireless speakers for my home. I want to remotely pipe music into my living room through my laptop iTunes, and use my iPhone remote to control the playlist.

While searching for the perfect cheap and decent speakers, we found this video.

John: “What a design douche. That scarf makes him terrible.”

Leyla: “I don’t even get it. How am I supposed to turn down the music when the pizza guy comes without looking like an asshole?”
