Freiheit im Internet

Nach längerer Zeit gibt es dann auch mal wieder einen neuen Eintrag in meinem Blog ;). Ich war die letzte Zeit viel beschäftigt; unter anderem mit dem Verfassen der Arbeit über die es in diesem Eintrag geht:

Im Sommersemester 2008 habe ich im Rahmen des Seminars Wissenschaftler und Ethik an der TUM eine Arbeit über die Freiheit im Internet geschrieben. Hierbei habe ich besonders die Zensur im Internet untersucht und die aktuellen Zensurmaßnahmen in verschiedenen Ländern und insbesondere China analysiert.

Spring in Munich (Part II)

Chinesischer Turm, MunichIn the last weeks I got visit from Christophe and Michel in Munich. They took a lot of pictures of beautiful Munich. Additionally there are some pictures of the Deutsches Museum and the BMW Welt.

At the end of this entry you will also find a video of people surfing on the Eisbachwelle in the English Garden.

Spellchecker.lu – Relaunch

In this blog post I will make some publicity for Michel´s project of a spellchecker for the luxembourgish language. This project now also contains a thesaurus database which you should extend by new words, if you find something missing (which you probably will, because the project is in an early stage 😉 )

But before I will try to formulate which improvements have been made and why it is better than before I just cite Michel’s blog post:

The new version of spellchecker.lu is online. After almost exactly two years after the initial release, the free spellchecker for Luxembourgish now has a new website, a nicer logo, an improved online checker as well as a thesaurus (synonym dictionary).

The online checker features the following improvements:

  • A more intuitive interface
  • A wordlist (also called ”dictionary”) of almost 500′000 words and word forms
  • Improved correction of common mistakes (found in instant messaging)
  • Improved correction of the so-called “Eifeler Regel” which is unique to Luxembourgish
  • Easy-to-use feedback form

Visit spellchchecker.lu for more information.

Spring in Munich

I am not going to blog about how amazing Munich is (not yet, but I will do so in the next weeks). I just want to share some tunes with you. I captured them this afternoon in the English Garden. The musicians are a band somehow and they were playing some kind of jam session. The music itself was not that great, but the mood of the musicians as well as the listeners was wanton.

Ecocho – You search, they grow trees

While surfing through the web, instead of writing some assignments for university, I just discovered a new search engine: the eco friendly search engine.

According to the Ecocho website:

Ecocho is a new search engine trying to make a difference for climate change.
For every 1000 searches users make on Ecocho we’ll counter balances or “offset” up to a ton of greenhouse gases. We do this by sponsoring two trees via advertising on the site.

Deutsch-Luxemburgische Beziehungen auf dem Höhepunkt… oder oh mein Gott!

Oh mein Gott… dachte ich als ich mir eben die Aufzeichnung der Kochsendung Lafer! Lichter! Lecker! vom 05.04.2008 angesehen habe. In der besagten Sendung kochen Luxemburgs Außenminister und Vize-Premier Jean Asselborn und der Deutsche Außenminister Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier bei Lafer und Lichter. Das Kochspektakel artet etwas ins Chaos aus und so kommt es neben der Verwechslung von Puderzucker und Salz, “noch milden” Waffeln und missglückten Erklärungsversuchen darüber was Judd mat Gaardebounen ist zum Schluss doch tatsächlich, und nicht zuletzt dank der 2 Sterne Köche zu einem präsentablen Menu.

FC Bayern – VfL Bochum at the Allianz Arena, Munich

Allianz ArenaThis afternoon I was at the Allianz Arena to watch the soccer game of the Erste Deutsche Bundesliga between FC Bayern Munich and VfL Bochum. The stadium was completely sold out (69000 places) and there was a good atmosphere from the beginning on, even though the FCB fell behind 0:1 after several minutes. I took several photos and I filmed the opening and a penalty kick for the FCB. I attached some of the pictures to this article and uploaded the videos to Youtube. The final score of the game: FC Bayern Munich – VfL Bochum 3:1 (1:1).
