Gamers will save the world

I love TED talks. And I love then so much that I am trying to get Gabi to join me at least once a week to watch one or a few TED talks. The other day I have stumbled upon this TED talk from Jane McGonigal about Gaming can make a better world. Her talk is from 2010 and it has a lot unique insights that shows to me that games and gamers should be taken more seriously by everyone.

The Mac World

After a long time trying to convincing myself that I should try to start using Mac, I have finally made the move. I got myself a Mac Mini. I really want to get the new Mac Book Pro Retina display, but I didn’t have a budget for that. My main goal besides starting in the Mac world is to learn iOS development and I will report back in here about my progress.

My Instagram photos

I have been taking some pictures with my phone and publishing it on my Instagram account. I have taken this photo below which is my favorite. I like it so much that I decided to order a personalized magnet for the fridge with this photo from Zazzle and I quite like the result (see photo below). The other two magnets on our fridge we got last year during our trip to Europe when we visit the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

Thomas is five

On the last 26th of April Thomas turned five years old. So today, Tati and Matthias organized a party at Brightmore Reserve where the kids can ride their bikes on a kids bike track. A face painting artist was there too and all the kids got nice and colorful paintings. It was a really nice day that I am sure Thomas will remember for a long time.

My Tumblr blog

This month I decided to create a Tumblr blog. In case you don’t know, let’s have a look on what Wikipedia have to say about Tumblr: “Tumblr is a microblogging platform and social networking website, owned and operated by Tumblr, Inc. The service allows users to post multimedia and other content to a short-form blog, named a “tumblelog”.” So, what I will be posting there? Well basically some photos that I snap here and there.
