Gotthardtunnel

Ever heard of the big accident in the gotthard car tunnel where a lenient truck driver fell asleep, got to the other lane and crashed into a car? With the effect of big fire with many deaths?

Well that's why I prefer to ride the train because the train cannot physically get to the other lane. Or so I thought till today.

Today a freight train going south lost big pieces of metal in the tunnel, the train going north crashed into them and the passengers were locked in the tunnel for 2h, see 20minuten or Der Spiegel for the story about it.

I was so (un)lucky to be in the train that followed just a few minutes later. So instead of waiting in the dark but warm tunnel for 2h, we only had to wait in Airolo for 2h, and there it looked like this (BRRR):

¡viva web 2.5!

This is my first entry. Yippee-ki-yay!

I created this BLOG because I feel we're evolving past web 2.0 . With the possibility to co-create or mash-up your out-of-the-box homepage / blog with all sorts of technologies we are not talking about web 2.0 anymore.

Take this page as an example. In the section 'visual-literacy' you will find links to information about me and/or work samples. Some of the Words in the Header-Bar are clickable. The photos in the sidebar are clickable and will lead you to my online-photoalbums. (web 1.0)
But it also has news and videos to favourite tags of mine, syndicated rss-feeds (of favourite websites), my blog-entries (and hopefully your comments), and a first mash-up in the photoalbum-box. I see this Blog mainly as an experimenting ground to try out new mash-up technologies, so stay tuned to changes & developments.


P.S: While I was writing this I saw that I'm not alone in that feeling, so I share some other voices with you:
