1999 speak

October 11, 2005

Ok so I had to blog about this: right now I’m in a lecture at my university and the lecture is in dutch. So the guy keeps on throwing in words (in english) like ‘corporate data model’, ‘context sensitive’ and of course everyone’s favorite ‘return on investment’. So first up why do people insist on using these words as if it still is 1999. Second why do people use a language other than their own? Especially in lectures throwing in these words is meaningless. This could all be frustration on my part, sure hope it isn’t a trend coming to hunt us from the past.

We have a venue!

We have a venue for Barcamp Amsterdam! Thanks to Willem Velthoven the head honcho at Mediamatic we can use their workshop space and kitchen! We only have room for about 40-50 people so sign up! Pictures of the place can be found here. Thanks again to Willem Velthoven and the Mediamatic crew for providing us with the space to hold Barcamp Amsterdam. Chris from Flock has written about it here. So remember the event is October 20th-21st in Amsterdam. More blogs about barcamp amsterdam. barcamp amsterdam

DOOM movie poster!

September 11, 2005

from digg: And, like the movie itself, the poster plays up the first-person shooter angle.

I don’t know how good the movie is going to be, the trailers look good. But history has taught us that ‘game-movies’ aren’t all that great. Still though…it -is- DOOM. I’m going.

This thing is hot. And I want one. The only thing that disappoints me besides the fact that my 1G iPod mini has become irrelevant, is that my remote cannot be connected to the nano, so that’s a shame. This would be my third iPod after the mini and the shuffle. Is this bad? Nah! The nano is hot 😉
