:flash: Schulmädchenreport – she may drop out of uni without a degree, but give this woman a job as a writer already: “It’s bitter to realise that you are simply not made for a world where the concept of intellectual elitism still exists. It’s bitter to realise that you studied Archaeology, Greek, Ancient History & Art History not to master them, but because they mastered you.

lift backlash

:flash: communities are getting used to social – what’s the next tendency? – “So at Lift07 there was nobody who said the word “blog” or “web 2.0″ which to me is a very visible sign that “blog” and “web 2.0″ is getting passé… slowly but firmly.” really? i still heard it too much… gah, spoke with the wrong people again. no offense.
