  • Blog Post: In my postbox today…

    Hi… did you ever have a deja-vu … a flash back from years ??? I just had one… A colleague of mine – the Master Chief Organizer of the CeBIT fair here in Germany, send me this letter. Babe, this must be somewhat …at least …I would say … 6 years or so… And yes: I have not shaved since then but yes, I did...
  • Blog Post: MCT Summit Keynote and what I learned

    Hi... I just did my keynote. Seemed to have been received quite well ;-) Now the guys with the Starwars costumes are on stage... I had some conversations I really have to think about... I'll be back on that... What I observed is that the technical trainer audience is very special in several ways. They...
  • Blog Post: MCT Summit in Berlin

    Hi... I will do a talk on the Microsoft product vision tomorrow here in Berlin. Once again at the Estrel Hotel...well, I tend to have bad luck regarding the heading of my room: My window always points at an industrial area. But I found the moon solely in the sky... Moon over Berlin ;-) If you don't know...
  • Blog Post: Picture of my space...

    Hi... Kay Giza asked me to provide a photo of my desk. Well, here it is: On the left side I have a special storage area which I call "the stack". It is sorted by a secret algorithm using the dimension time. The new stuff is on the top, the deeper down, the older... And you can find all the things to...
  • Blog Post: Forget all your MP3 Players...

    Hi... last weekend I was with my parents and as usual my mother wanted to get rid of old things of mine. She showed what she called "an old music player of mine but since I certainly have a new one..." Well, this is an original Sony Walkman WM-31 . It has a connector for an external power supply, a switch...
  • Blog Post: Got a Nice Present

    Hi... my colleague Lars Lippert gave me his beloved shirt, Steffen Weh added the nice face to it and we pinned it in the corner of my space. It is some kind of Independant Software Vendor ghost... thank you two so much!!! This present reminds me of the power of good gifts (and the power of bad ones,...
  • Blog Post: Leaving Xing - going Facebook

    Hi... ok, first it was due to professional reasons why I started with a facebook account. And you all know why I did this ;-) But now I found what makes Facebook my preferred social network (over my previous one Xing): The international touch and the ease of topics. While Xing is very focused on professional...
  • Blog Post: The Story behind: Adventure Works Cinema

    Hi... maybe you have already seen the sample project that the German MS Sub did for Visual Studio 2005. It is called Adventure Works Cinema (see here http://www.microsoft.com/germany/msdn/library/vs2005/samples/default.mspx?mfr=true ) There is an interesting story behind this. It happened to that time...
  • Blog Post: One the hardest weeks I ever had...

    Hi... let me tell you about my last week. It started on Monday morning - say - on 3:45 am. I got up that early because I had to take a plane to Frankfurt very early. So far everything went well until we stood on the runway for hours waiting for the Frankfurt airport to be opened because of fog. Well...
  • Blog Post: Interesting Clipping: The Box of Freedom

    HI... as usual I am listening audio books when jogging through the woods. One model really struck me (I nearly bumped into a tree while thinking about it): Think about most animals or robots: There is a direct reaction to a stimulus. Think about humans (or some higher mammals): There is a box of freedom...
  • Blog Post: Am I getting old...finally?

    Hi... you all remember (if not you are in the middle of that time of your life. Then quit reading and come back in 15 years) the time when you had a wish but not the money nor the freedom to fulfill it?!?!? For me this was a Yamaha XT 500. Something which I desired when I was around 16 to 17 years old...

  • Blog Post: Ping Me!

    Hi... in Germany we started Ping Me! The idea is to put a face on the guys behind MSDN and make easier contact. So we recorded some videos and made something like a business card (the PingMe! card ) Here is my one: http://www.microsoft.com/germany/msdn/pingme/FrankFischer/default.aspx The...
  • Blog Post: Where do all the patents go...?

    Hi... <My-Opinion Disclaimer="This is just my personal opinion and has nothing to do with what my employer does or states. If you want to blame somebody, blame me."> I just saw an article on patents. The key messages were... "... that patents alone will not make a society an innovation...
  • Blog Post: Anyone seen my phone...

    Hi... as if a cold isn't enough I came to the US and left my phone at home. It is a strange experience living without it to be very honest... I think I left it in my car ... To all of you trying to reach my by phone: It won't work just now... CU 0xff
  • Blog Post: Dead in Orlando...

    Hi... I just arrived in Orlando. We will have a yearly meeting here and normally I would like forward to meet all the people of Microsoft. I had some bad news last time I came here (just the same reason but a hell of a trip). This time: No lost luggage, planes on time, everything just worked out...
  • Blog Post: Why is the Online Reading Experience of the Makezine so lousy?

    Hi... I have read the Makezine since the past year now. As an inhabitant of the cyberspace and as a guy living outside the US I have chosen to read it online. I thought that O'Reilley (the guy who defined the word "Web 2.0") would have a rocking reading experience. My first impression was... say ......
  • Blog Post: Second: A Welcome

    Hi... Welcome, my new Lenovo X60 Tablet PC Boy, I waited nearly 4 weeks now and some of my collegues already had such a machine. Man, they made no jokes: This machine really rocks. It is small, lighweight, dual-cored and for now with 2 Gb RAM well equiped (I will add one more as soon as my manager does...
  • Blog Post: First: A Goodbye

    Hi... My dear Toshiba: Yesterday our partnership split: My Toshiba M4 now retires. You were a strong companion over the last 2 years. You were not my first machine to have Longhorn or Vista on it (actually I was 3 months productively working with the 2003 PDC version of Longhorn those days with a Dell...
  • Blog Post: Definition for Business Model

    Hi... I found a nice definition for business model which I just have to mention here: A business model performs two important functions: it creates value, and it captures a portion of that value. It creates value by defining a series of activities from raw materials through to the final consumer that...
  • Blog Post: Am I a MacGyvering guy??

    HI... recently I found this article http://www.spectrum.ieee.org/jun07/5119 in the IEEE Spectrum. It is about the renaissance of the Do it yourself style of building things. There I found a new word called MacGyvering. Since I am a fan of MacGyver I thought: Am I a MacGyvering guy? So first I am interested...
