Traveling to the campus in L:Berlin. Smells like Web1.0, .com boom, Web2.0, and lately recession. Lots of real estate free. Need some?

The “snooze” feature on alarm clocks is highly unproductive. Today even the kids snoozed :-) Arrived quite late at work.

Anyone knows a good and free tool for Mac OS X?

Why rocks: you can transparently see whom people smarter than you follow, and in turn follow them. E.g. learning from @mattcutts.

Bitte weitertwittern: Aus geg. Anlass (http://bit.ly/GLJ2B) verkaufen wir unsere Kinderwagenrampe bei eBay (http://bit.ly/QFTEI).

eBay as a selling platform is dead. At least if you are a human and not a last minute bidding bot. (http://bit.ly/4usQO shameless self-ad)

W/ a Web-enabled iPhone you are king of the train. Had people queueing for the Munich vs. Barcelona result: an embarassing 0:4 if you care

via Echofon

@MartinAssmann Definitely see you in HAM. Then w/ more of a direct biz focus I guess :) Fun thing is: big € are made out of engagement

via Echofon in reply to MartinAssmann

@tcurdt Addendum: tcurdt was livetweeting. GWT will be a great topic, maybe even combined w/ AppEng Java. It’s all connected. CU soon

via Echofon

MUC was more presos, more people, more beer. BER was more monetization, more external, more swag. Thanks Zanox for the event hosting.

via Echofon

There was no livetweeting, so summary after event: people interested in Android, AppEng, GWT, OpenSocial/Gadget, BigTable (descending)

via Echofon

Kudos to Jerôme for organizing. Looking forward to >10 participiants next time. Planning joined JUG/GTUG event on AppEng Java support.

1st Berlin GTUG meeting. Topics covered: intro of Gadgets by Jerôme, GOOG swag quiz. Next steps: spread the word, AppEngine Java talk.

@kojote: Oh, and if you provide some speakers, we could even add a Google pen extra for each slide ;-)

@kojote: If you provide the location, we provide the swag :-P Seriously, we didn’t have swag until last minute for today. Munich next time.

via web

Carrying a huge bag of Google swag with me to the Berlin GTUG meeting. Munich GTUG, there are good reasons to invite the GOOG guys again ;-)

@koyote: I meant @kojote, sorry.

@koyote, @MartinAssmann: thanks for registering gtug-muc.org. Great to see all this GTUG stuff magically lift off.

The good thing is: the hi-speed train from Hamburg to Berlin is slow enough for at least an EDGE connection not to break down.

On the way to Berlin GTUG formation meeting. iPhone, PdaNet, MacBook Pro and a power supply in the hi-speed train. Future, here I come.
