A Week of REST – Retrospect

This year I spent quite a bit of time learning. The last big challenge was the Week of REST in beautiful Derbyshire, September 5th – 9th.

Cooking with the New York Times

We have a nice collection of pretty cool cookbooks, but the resource I actually use most often is the recipe collection of the NY Times.

Actually it’s so much more than a collection of recipes: If you have an account you are able to build up your own recipe box, rate recipes, sync them with your Evernote account and learn the basics around cooking.

A short recap and some thoughts before it’s too long gone. Yeah, another WordPress event with lots of inspiring, smart and fun people. A big Thank You to the organizers and everybody who had a share in making it possible. More of it!
In a way I feel sorry I can’t be in London for the upcoming WordCamp. Then again I do need some time to implement all the stuff I learned in Berlin and in Leiden. But back to Berlin for now. Continue reading “This was WPCamp Berlin 2013”

Yvon Chouinard: Let my people go surfing

Yvon Chouinard writes about his life story as much as about the story of Patagonia. From the very beginning as a small shop for climbing supplies to todays company, offering a wide range of clothing for people who love to be outdoors.

The education of a reluctant business man
