A colleague in the search marketing space with the name Tamar Weinberg had a “coming out” and admit her addition to “SCHWAG”, the stuff you get for free at conferences or other promotional items sent to you by companies.She dedicated a whole blog to her addition where she posted pictures and comments to all her trophies. Guess the name of the blog! … right SchwagAddict.com! Uh, that was hard.. hehe.I have some trophies myself. I also extend the definition of Schwag a little bit and include promotional material where I actually paid money for the privilege to carry somebody else’s name or logo around for the whole world to see. This pic shows the front of a BuyMusic.com T-Shirt (“get loaded”, which has obviously 2 meanings here hehe), a Levelclick shirt, a Techsmith Snag-It Sweatshirt, which reads “Capture, Edit, Share” and can have a double meaning ), the front of a CT-Magazine short (“rtfm”, which has actually only one meaning), a SES San Jose 2006 shirt, a Mister-Wong.com shirt (top right), a The Party 1997 short where I paid actually money for and a BDN shirt, which I had to earn (I won the fast-ANSI compo at BDN Party 3 in Berlin, Germany). You can also see some other stuff there, such as the “I’am feeling lucky” License Plate frame from Google (which they offered free of charge on their site at some time).A closer lookBack of the Levelclick t-shirt saying “Stop Guessing Start Earning!” and front of the BuyMusic.com[…]

I was sorting some old zip archives on my file server when I stumbled across an old text file from October 1997 with the name “INETSUXX.ZIP”. I was intrigued and checked it out. The FILE_ID.DIZ provided already a glimpse of the things to come. .—————————–.| a short statement about the || actual bulletin board || system scene !!! || changes are needed! |`——————————- — – | COMMENT ON THIS FILE!­! : ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ . _.:%[READ:IT]%:._ Here is the entire content of the included text file with the filename “CHANGE.IT!”. It has two authors. The initial author who also created the ZIP file and started spreading it through other bulletin board systems is an anonymous sysop who is mad that the BBS scene was going down the drain and that everybody was switching to use the Internet rather than dialing a BBS. It was modified and extended with comments by PigPen of Poison and Surge. He made some were good and forward thinking statements back then, even though his English language skills are not the best (the text screams for spelling and grammatical errors) and border-line PG13 language used. This is true for both guys by the way. I think it was how we really talked back then. I can’t remember for sure, but the text refreshed some long forgotten memories in me.Okay, here it comes, uncut and uncensored. Original text…. this sux! we had several times to change the whole thing… but no one of us seems to care about the[…]

I am a Libertarian Anarchist

When people ask me about my political opinion did I not have an answer for them, because what I believe is hard to describe. I did not know that there does actually exist a term for it. Here in the U.S. people ask me, if I am Republican, Democrat or a Green. I am neither of them. In Germany people asked me, if I am Conservative Christian Democrat, Social Democrat, Liberal, Green, Socialist or a Communist. I am neither of them. So what am I?I just found that out a few days ago when I watched the episode titled “Activism, Anarchism, and Power” of the educational series “Conversations with History” by the Institute of International Studies of the University of California at Berkley.The host Harry Kreisler had a 1 hour conversation with Noam Chomsky, linguist and political activist on March 22, 2002. I watched the video recording of it, which I downloaded from Google Video. Here is a link to the complete one hour episode.I learned that I am a Libertarian Anarchist. This has nothing to-do with liberals in the United States, who are completely different from who call themselves “Liberals” in Germany, which is different from what the word actually means. The anarchist part of it does also not refer to chaos or lack of organization of the society. I am sure most people get it wrong when they hear it for the first time and probably think that I am a Lenin citing and Molotov Cocktail throwing radical[…]

This post is already over one week overdue, but I just didn’t find the time for it until now. I have several news that I like to share. SACtros CompleteWhen I was writing about the SACtros video section here on my site, did I mention that I was not able to get one SACtro to work and asked for help. Well, I got help and thanks have to go to Ben Garret from Defacto2.net (the PC warez scene archive). He created a video capture of the missing intro for me and I was able to produce the final video with music and all and put it up on the site.I also found a few more SAC VGA logos, which I put up on the designated gallery for them. The logos I included were created by Kenet, Dream Design and Hetero.Complete All-Time SAC Member ListI got 2 weeks ago in contact with an active SAC member with the name Dipswitch who is a musician and ANSI artist who joined SAC around April 2002. I got in touch with him via Facebook.com and hope that he will be able to help me with my complete SAC member list. I already spent a bunch of time on collecting data and information. The member list is suppose to contain everybody who used to be a member of SAC during its 14+ years history with information about what they did, where they were from and optional contact information etc. From what I collected so far,[…]
