Happy birthday

exactly one year ago, on May 27th, 2007, the first article was published on lipflip.org. Roundabout 70 blog posts followed and I’m not planning to retire.

PsyBlog published a nice article about the psychology of money.

Vector Wars

Vector Wars is a nice little Arcade Shooter. Protect your spaceship that is attacked by zillions of most diverse enemies.

Avoid colliding with them by steering your ship with the cursor keys and blast them out of your way with your mouse-controlled hypergun that permanently increases its firepower.

Aktion wider den undeutschen Geist

Heute vor 75 Jahren, kurz mach der Machtübergabe an die Nationalsozialisten im März 1933, wurden im Rahmen der „Aktion wider den undeutschen Geist“ zigtausende nicht in die Naziideologie passende Bücher öffentlich verbrannt. Teils einzelne Titel, vor allem aber die kompletten Werke von pazifistischen, kommunistischen oder jüdischen Autoren.

Organisiert wurde die in Berlin und zahlreichen anderen Universitätsstädten durchgeführte Aktion durch die Deutsche Studentenschaft, dem damaligen Dachverband der Studierendenvertretungen.
