Bye Bye Steve

Bye, Bye Steve! Just a couple of days ago I found these Books in a local Store, I guess they have gotten a little more iconic bye now. Everybody wanting to get some of the fascination associated to Steve Jobs please read Vig Gondutras Blog post about a special phone call. Icon Ambulance tells you a lot more than most of the published posts fluttering on the web these days! May you get better soon Steve!

Elections in Germany

Today we have some pretty big elections in germany. I can not vote (Only people in Baden-Württemberg are called up for elections) but the outcome of today will have some major implications for the national parties as well. One big question is to be answered: Will the small liberal party make it into the parliament. If so, not much is gonna change in the admnistration. If you have seen this video you might find yourself in doubt if they can really make it 🙂 Happy Election day everybody. Go out and vote!

Whats up Suomi?

Lets start with the good news of this blog post: Nazis all over the world suck when it comes to spelling. In a way the graffiti i found on a s-bahn train in northern helsinki is typical. Finland still does not like to talk about the winter war and when it comes to immigration discussions they cite german former national Banker Thilo Sarrazin.

As a german i allways ask myself what non germans actually think when they draw symbols like that. Who are these individuals?

Do they want the “Wehrmacht” back as one fin told me a week ago in a queue to a club? Or are they really happy about how the germans behaved in Lappland in 1944? I have met way to many people who really thought that former Nazi Germany was a excellent thing. A country who has lost WWII on the side of Nazi Germany should have learned its lesson.

Don’t get me wrong: I stil love my new home but at times i would like to get more appreciation for the new germany and not what my grandfather messed up.

In the mean time – learn some sophisticated german spelling!

Go Papa, Go!

Dear Dad,

today you fulfill a dream in your life. After running the berlin marathon last year you want to proof that you can run in the land of endless freedom. I am proud of your courage and strong will to conquer the New York Marathon. I hope to have that much energy left once i get older. I am sure you’ll manage the challenge you have set yourself and i am envious of all the great experiences you will take home with you. Take it easy and enjoy the time of your life!

Your son in Finland
