R.I.P. Michael Jackson

Well, it already seems, like everything is said about MJs death.

Everyone is really sad, and that is actually the right way to take it. Be proud of your feelings and show them to the world. On my way home I was dancing in the train and on the street, hearing his great songs on my player. It made me smile all the time. When I got home the first german national TV station showed the famous Dangerous tour stop in Bukarest again. Watching it again took me back to my teenage highlight. Seeing that show live with 60000 other people in Frankfurt, one day before his birtday in 1992. The whole stadium sang "Happy Birthday".

Thank you Michael - MJ - for the soundtrack of my teenage years. From dance contests to my first girlfriends. Everything is connected with your music. I'll always keep that in my heart. I hope you finally found your well deserved peace.

Is freedom of information killing democracy?

Due to the recent happenings in the world, I like to come up with that question: Will the freedom of information which the internet provides us destroy the given world order? Will it even get us to some sort of anarchy? 

Look at the situation in Iran: The governing body is trying a lot to censor the internet, to close down the connections to the world, but the internet is grown already way over their heads. And the people is organizing now to demonstrate against the rulers. I like to shout to them: "Good Luck, freedom of speech!"

Look at chinese try to block porn and stuff, which terribly went wrong. Again the net is too big, too many PCs all around too many ways to get online and get the news from all over the world. The installation of this blocking tool turned out to be a total PR disaster! The people of china is waking up too...

Even in the little stories you find a lot of anarchy: Check out the latest flahmob party at sylt. Organized by instance and a guy who just did a group on a social network and said: Lets party at sylt... The governing body, the burocracy, the police were overextended by that situation and it went out of hand.

Soo, where will this lead us? The governing bodies all over the world have underestimated the networking power of the internet so far. There wont be a lot of time, until we will see some kind of "united states of facebook" with the help of google... People want to be connected, they want to get their own information and they stand up to it! And the whole computer technology is now grown up! World, here we come and when we take over, this will be an all knowing happy place! Lets roll... (ok, those last two sentences are bit too much, but I just felt like ;) )

ruptured ligaments...

... are a pain in the ass. Damn it! Well, after about ten days with this injury it is really getting on my nerves. I hate it. I cant really walk, I cant really sit etc. On the other hand: Just another 5 weeks to go.
On the other hand, I am in the nice situation to feel pain which Achmed the dead terrorist never could feel, as he just doesnt have ligaments. So this shows once more, how important all your senses are to feel alive. Even if it is pain, sorrow or any other "bad" feeling you have. It shows you, you are alive! So now get on, don't whine if you feel pain, enjoy the cheese to it and go on! The Future is just around the corner and some pain will be gone the moment, you step around that corner. Now get back to your work, family or whatever and especially keep an eye on the iranian vote this weekend. I feel another change might be coming!
Have a nice weekend!
