Austrian philosopher and teacher Rudolf Steiner created a theory of human development based on seven-year cycles that were associated with astrology.
It's funny how the human mind works. It simply gets used to things. When I bought my first iPhone (yes a 3GS), I thought it was big (compared to my Nokia at that time).
The 5S I purchased only because of the fingerprint reader, not of the size at that time. I thought it was way to big.
But now after almost a year working with the iPhone 6 looking back on the previous iPhones; they were so small ;-)
My son just got his iPhone 6s Plus. What a giant.
I wonder when we start calling with an iPad Pro to our ears :-)
Size does matter, but overtime big things just look smaller don't they?
This weekend my wife and I were in Harrogate for a wedding. It was a traditional english wedding which we really enjoyed.
Harrogate is named the happiest place to live in UK. It's a typical english place with stunning parks and beautiful old buildings.
When we tried to fly out of Leeds/Bradford's airport (because of delays we eventually flew out of Manchester), just after the security check I spotted this old biometric time punch system of Recognition.
Once considered hightech but never a real breakthrough in the global biometric market.
Nevertheless it's good to see Harrogaters live in the 21st century ;-)
Boy, I really enjoyed this kickstarter project.
Based on three mini-lp's of the '60's, Stephen La Rivière decided to turn these into real tv-shows. To finance this project he started one of the most successful kickstarter projects in the UK ever. He raised over 200.000GBP in 30 days.
Today he published the trailer of the first new "old" episode to celebrate the Thunderbirds 50th anniversary. It's available in 1080p.
Well done Stephen, congrats on the great achievement.
Today my black metal business cards by Plasma Design arrived. Plasma Design is located in the UK and I've worked with them since 2005. Awesome team, awesome cards.
