Mein Redetext "Wo die Zukunft verhandelt werden kann" steht jetzt zum Nachlesen online unter axel-duerkop.de/de/post/bueche und buecherhallen.de/blog-artikel/

What's the correct linguistic term for a word being phonetically related to another like in the following example:

Skynet <-> Nice cat

You have to speak it out loud several times to hear how scary this relationship is :-)

Docker for Research and Learning 

Up to giving a two-days workshop on container virtualization for colleagues at our university.
We use Docker for various projects and are inspired e.g. by the way the Panama Papers research was distributed.[1] Running "docker run -p 7474:7474 ryguyrg/neo4j-panama-papers" on your machine gives you access to the complete data and the environment for analysis.

Podcasts for the Kids using FLOSS 

Showed my nine year old daughters how to subscribe to podcasts and transfer them to their MP3 players.

We used , and a SanDisk 8GB Clip Sport that accepts format.

As an old school dad I believe in "one tool one job" as it teaches children the underlying principles of computers much better than convenient black boxes like smartphones.

What do you think about that?

How Does Mastodon Work? - @kev

If you're asking yourself "how does Mastodon work?" this post will provide an excellent answer. #Mastodon is an #opensource and #federated social network.

I find it absurd when people accuse #SciHub of "stealing" from journal publishers. It is the publishers who are stealing, from the scholars who write, peer review and edit the journals without pay, from universities and their libraries who have to pay to so their researchers can publish papers *and* to get access to them, and from the public who fund all this, through public funding, tuition fees and so on.

Please
Don't feel bad or ashamed if you spend your week-end sleeping, resting.

It's *it's purpose*.

And in itself, resting is **not** doing nothing.

It's taking care of yourself, and allowing to gather back some energy. Some time to yourself.

Resting *is* doing something, for you. And it's a good thing to do sometimes.

Released the presentation that I used for the workshop on & [1] as an .

Used the project to check out the new version 2.5 for building slides. This time I had to invest some time, but now I have a scaffold that I - and you - can (re)use.

Please find the slides as a PDF at (in German) in our university's .[2]
