Neues Projekt: ARD BeifallsTrend

Ein Programm lädt die aktuellen Plenarprotokolle des Deutschen Bundestages automatisch herunter und wertet diese aus. Im Fokus der Betrachtung liegen nicht die Inhalte einer Plenarsitzung (Reden), sondern die spontanen Reaktionen der Abgeordneten im Plenarsaal (Beifall, Zurufe).

New book: The Fundamental Questions

New book – a Collaboration with Vicki Bennett aka People Like Us:

Who am I? Where do I come from? What is my purpose in Life and what happens when I die?

For centuries people have tried to come up with answers regarding the fundamental questions of life. Then the internet was invented and these questions have finally been answered – by users.

The book The Fundamental Questions captures them in an inspiring record of epic proportions where every individual verse becomes a mantra of a mind-expanding collective thought. It reminds us, that one single answer is never the answer.
