Nowadays it’s rare that you miss out on something, thanks to the internet and its many sudden notification systems. The more stunned I was when I stumbled upon “Empire Avenue”, which is an awesome stock market simulation. The twist is, you are a stock, and so are you friends. Wikipedia explains it better than I […]
Internet – who can live without? If I find something incredibly interesting, I will blog about it.
The Social Memories of Jakob Montrasio. Review Today my “Social Memories” book arrived. It’s a new book service that DHL offers. The Facebook application diggs thru your Facebook account and creates a book based on a timeframe that you can edit and ships it to you.

Yeah, that’s about four times faster than at home: Now I spend more time working and less time downloading – great! I’ll blog some more about our new office next week. Too busy with other stuff these days…
