  • It all. Nothing short of it all.

    In your twenties, you were a visionary. You wanted to learn it all, and fix it all. All the world. Ever realized that you cannot do everything that is meaningful in your life? When you dedicate your life to help people with HIV, you can't go find a cure for HIV. Or find the quantum […]

  • Scientific Writing and Knowledge Management with Docear

    This is so far just a proposal – I did not fully test it out yet, but have exlored options for two days and this seems best, for my requirements. (And thanks to mantas in the comments, whose tip for Docear lead to this major rework of an earlier article, which was using Freemind instead.) Requirements […]

And it is difficult to deal with that distance, it is something “unlivable” to put all ones hope into something that will not (or nearly not) come into experience […]

  • Second life of Second Acts

    In the recent article “Third way cont., up to the end” I said that it would be “the last to the “Second Acts” series of posts, canceling that project resp. leaving it to be “just some visits” while on my tour through Africa.”. This is no longer true … I realized in the time since […]
