Blogger cancels its service. Anyway, I have not written much here. So I can as well close this blog. Who knows, maybe I will at some point convert it. Or use Twitter. Or whathaveyou. So long, and thanks for all the fish!
Well, not much happening here. Now also blogger.com cancels its service. So this might as well be the last post here. So long, and thanks for all the fish.
Gestern war Martin Rütter in Wien. Erwartet hatte ich einen eher trockenen Vortrag, doch es war ganz anders. Was Mario Barth für Frauen, ist Martin Rütter für Hunde. Ich kann nicht sagen, bei wem ich mehr gelacht habe.

Peter Donnelly talks about interesting statistics. In particular, he points out typical misinterpretations of statistics. This is really important to understand. It also nicely aligns with what Bruce Schneier regularly explains in context of the fear of terrorism.

Last weekend I watched Confronting the Evidence by the initiative Reopen 911, a recording of a panel discussion questioning the official version of 9/11. Several points are totally convincing. Overall it is not on the level of detail as the BBC report on the same subject. In any event, there are serious questions who really did it.
This weekend I found two interesting job titles. The first was erection supervisor, the other penetration tester. While Google finds both in large number, Xing know no erection supervisor and only two penetration testers. Probably it is rather strange to have those titles on the business card.
So I spent a night with Paris Hilton (or was it in? or at?). I have to admit, the most attractive of the Hilton family I have stayed with.
