March 23, 2015 | By | No Comments

The other day Paul Houghton and Ricardo Brito kindly invited me to Futurice’s Berlin HQ to record the second issue of their #IoT podcast The Thingcast, where we chatted about IoT, ThingsCon and the Berlin tech scene.

The Berlin Subway Camo Shirt

March 4, 2015 | By |

A fun weekend project produced this lovely super ugly Berlin subway camouflage shirt. If you’ve ever taken the subway in Berlin, particularly the uber-popular U8 line, you’ve had the joy of experiencing this pattern up close.

There are of course other fantastic products paying homage to the city’s subways, like this bag, this lovely collection of public transport-themed clothes, and the public transport pattern project. All of which I love!

I’ve wanted to have a piece of clothing paying homage to this design for a long time. Now, thanks to the quite excellent service Print All Over Me, it has become easy. So here we go: The Berlin Subway Camo shirt on!

A new team for UIKonf!

October 14, 2014 | By |

A few weeks ago, my UIKonf partners Chris, Matt & I decided that we wouldn’t have the bandwidth to run & grow the event in 2015. I’m super happy that our blog post about our plans found the exact right response – a new team stepped forward to take over from us. We couldn’t be happier as this team is excellent, knows the event series inside out and just, well, gets it. We’ll all stay around to help out of course as we wouldn’t want to just drop out of the whole thing. It’s too good and too much fun to abandon the event, we just can’t be the leads.

Engin, Maxim & Sabine, you rock! This is going to be great!

More updates as soon, straight from the new team, at
