My Presentation – Project Management

A selection of German high-school students want to realize an ambitious project sponsored by the “Elite Promotion Program“. The person in charge of the program at the Bavarian Ministry of Education is a good friend of mine. Consequently, he asked me to speak about “Project Management” in front of those young people coming from all over Bavaria.

Trying to keep everything very simple, I  came up with the following presentation. Above all, I wanted to make my young audience understand all the things that go with a project.

Here is the concise manuscript. Enjoy!

Progress Report of IF AGORA

We are making some small progress with IF AGORA. The fact that progress comes so hesitantly is mainly my fault. Somehow or other, I do not seem to have enough time to properly promote IF AGORA. But I am sure matters will improve.

Regardless, new knowledge is coming in all the time. The last advertisement was by Dr. Tatjana Rosendorfer. She (not only) invites you to attend presentations and workshops where you learn important things about how to deal with money. She also knows what you can do when it is too late to avoid money problems.

Among other things, Tatjana studied domestic economy and has a lot of experience with „economic socialization“.
One of her important goals is to make people understand the connection between economical and social understanding. It is relevant whenever we are talking money.

To be sure, her expected customers are mainly families and small enterprises. But, basically, the systematics on a small scale is absolutely comparable with that on a huge scale. I think it would not be a bad idea if representives of our diverse governments and municipalities were to start an apprenticeship with Tatjana. It would have prevented quite a few budgets from suffering emptiness in the past  …

Here is the link to Dr. Tatjana Rosendorfer’s knowledge database  at IF AGORA!

Olive Oil

Last Friday, we sat with a married couple who are very good friends of ours and enjoyed a very nice evening. One of the things we talked about were our experiences during travels and vacations.

We got to talk about olive oil. Both couples had brought it back home to Germany from very special places in the Mediterranean region in large quantities.
And in both families, the supplies dwindle.

Consequently, it is about time for our next vacation.

Then we talk about shared past experiences. They all seem to have happened long ago. We remember old times…

And it also comes to mind that, in those days, we Germans, on returning from our vacations in Italy, always used to lament about what a terrible time we have had. We always complained about how food had been prepared with olive oil.

And how this had been the reason for quite a few arguments with the locals. …

Well, there you see how matters change.

Invitation: BICCnight

BICC-net permitted me to invite you and your partner to come to the Rundfunkhaus for the first BICCnight. I, too, will be there. In fact, I will give a presentation titled: “What’s new pussycat?”, which is about the history of IuK technology and the media sector. But I will also talk about the huge responsibility both of them should have for our society..

Come and see for yourself and enjoy an inspiring evening with discussions and music. It will be both family-oriented and exclusive, media-intensive and informative..

The invitation is especially for persons who have a close connection to computer science and/or to the media.

Please note that you absolutely have to register (this is also true for your partner). Registration deadline is July, 20th. Just send an email to: event@bicc-net.de. – admission is free but the number of seats is limited. The BICCnight motto is “it@media” (IT meets Media). I look forwards to seeing a familiar face or two among the audience.

Rasor-Sharp…

Elsbeth woke up. She was lying on the street in the nude…

When she was finally able to lift her flayed face from the blood-soaked asphalt, her empty eyes stared at an ant. The creeper was busy rushing to and fro between slashed fragments of skin that covered an arm-like piece of  flesh and then lifted its head with an air of inquisitiveness, just like it were in a hurry to catch the scent and later test the abundance of blood nourishment that would soon be at its disposal. Eventually, it disappeared between nervous fingers that squashed it.

Painfully, Elsbeth moved her face a little more away from the asphalt, held her head just a little bit higher and finally made out the end of the wet asphalt layer in the early morning dawn. And on both sides, she saw how the street that had destroyed her continued.

Then, finally, there was another gust of rain.
