Mobile moday in berlin

Thorsten Lubinski - Alazar
Björn Behrendt - Hiogi
Christof Fromm - E-Plus
Markus Otte - MTV
Håkon Wium Lie - Opera (CTO)
Christophe Maire – Nokia

Sitting next to the CTO of opera - i am eager to see what the discussion will be like. All in all it was fun to be there and I learned that ePlus is doing something for mobile start-ups (more later, when I tried it), Opera Mini has a new data center in California, only the Top20 apps in the itunes store really make money and my wish for next year was, if i were god: "Force all the people in Germany to open up their private WiFi routers so that we would have free wifi everywhere!"

Lufthansa leg room

Yesterday I got the seat 10B on an Airbus 319. This seat has one big advantage: You do not even have to think about your leg position or any moves during the flight. ;-) You simply sit, sit, sit and wait for the landing...

Additional comment on the US election

Yesterday on RTL late news a black man was interviewed on the streets of Harlem and he said: "Now I can go home and tell my little boy: Hey, we live in a great country. Even you can dream and work hard to become president one day!"

Another chubby lady said that she went running in the mornings for the first time in years.

Young men were shouting: Yes, we can. Yes, we can.

I think there is nothing more valuable than a positive spirit in a people with more than 200 million inhabitants. It should move something in the right directions, as long as everybody "starts with the man in the mirror" and does not solely expect miracles from one man! :-)

Professor Simon Schama on historic Obama victory on BBC

I watched BBC news this morning and Professor Simon Schama made very interesting remarks about the importance of the historic Obama victory in the us elections today. He reminded the viewers that Thomas Jefferson who rote the Declaration of Independence in 1776 had hundreds of slaves himselve...and that only today America really has overcome racial differences that were still laying as a burden on the country.

In the Preamble to his original draft of the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson wrote:

"...We hold these truths to be sacred & undeniable; that all men are created equal & independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent & inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, & liberty, & the pursuit of happiness;..."

Hundreds of years after these words have been written down, several years after Martin Luther King died, the United States of America now do have an afro-american president, who should make all Americans proud, no matter which skin colour someone might have.

Barack Obama has an incredible hard job and the world is facing tough times. However this change was needed and it will be for the better.

It was very emotional to see the pictures on BBC and CNN today of millions of Americans from different ethnic backrounds celebrate together with a positive spirit and optimistic look ahead. Good luck to America and good luck to Barack Obama!
