Since I decided to do a reconstruction of this place here I thought it would maybe a good idea to start to give access to my archived work. While I’m working on a concept you could take a look at these slideshows:

and there is sorrow

yesterday my father-in-law died. otfried rost. 80 years. great man, husband, father, grandfather and artist. his art was and still is inspiring — his website an already started future project.

Flamenco Dancer

alive! alive? alive!

yes, i’m alive. worked hard. did a wedding “corporate” design (early examples at f.), some (re-)design (champions-world), some blog design (katharina suckale, online very soon), a printed portfolio for sk74, consulting and preparation for a big re-design (secret). and still doing the planning for my own biggest projects: one w/ words and one w/ images – but it’s a long way to go; numbers? around 200 and around 2500. curious? harhar!

besides the virtual world i did some woodwork: new desktop construction/extension and a monitor+macmini stand … photos: later.

footnote: ben, our time is august.

still under construction

code under progressYep. Time is ticking. Ticking really fast. Site design not ready for prime time. Not even close. Too many missing bullet points. Missed GTD. Don’t wanna do a nightshift again. Not this night. Busy day tomorrow. Remember? re:publica. Conference ’bout web2.0, open source and social media in berlin, germany.

But I created an icon for «Code Under Contruction». You wanna get it? Download it? Here you go:

New! Relaunch myself + updates!

Yeehaa! This site changed the style today – because I can. If something is not right aligned or behaves like a donkey I’ll say sorry. Maybe I gonna fix the bugs (or not).

  • New (static) text blurps. Better, shorter, straighter. Thanks to: jmi, cat and tania.
  • Sadly sorry: The static pages (About, Service, Showroom) and their subpages are now only in german until I’ll get someone who can translate the new text pieces. Ben? Are you listening? I can’t offer money BUT in exchange for a good translation I could offer some design work or help w/ blog setup or css/theme makeover. Or mac support. Or good music tips. Or a delicious dinner.
  • New pages like Kulturprogramm will give you updates what I read, listen to and watch on dvd or at the movies.
  • My Toolbox will be relaunched very soon. Same with the FAQs.
  • Starting over the Showroom (replaces the portfolio); more updates very soon.
  • Two little (secret) projects will be presented very soon. I’m still working on them so I have to shut up for now. But two words to keep you checking my site frequently: artist and writings.

Other updates:

  • Tomorrow starts the re:publica, a german conference about blogging, web-two-oh, open source and other nerdy stuff; I’ll be there.
  • It seems there will be no aKua theme for K2. Why? Well, no real progress on the K2 develepment front, still stuck before a final 1.0 version. But, someone did a really great theme. 100% mac-like, unbeatable, ajaxified, widgetized, drag’n’dropable, leading “i”: iTheme 1.0 by Nick La.
  • I’m still looking for someone w/ very good PHP, ajax and WordPress skills who is interested in developing one or more themes for WordPress w/ me.

Mint updated

My favorite web statistic tool — winner over google analytics and the performancing blog stats — takes a step forward: version number 2.0 is released today. I upgraded for $19. Maybe I update my installation this afternoon to see what really changed and what is improved or new.

«Mint is an extensible web site analytics program. Its interface is an exercise in simplicity. Visits, referrers, popular pages and searches can all be taken in at a glance on Mint’s flexible dashboard. […] Have a mint.»

aKua – new fishing grounds?

aKua version 0.01betaI updated the status about the release of aKua. Some day it will be launched.

And if you’re a PHP and WordPress guru who is interested in building a team: let me know. Maybe there is a time for something new. Comments open. Ready to rock’n’roll.
