Elance – e-Working

Remembered this e-working platform elance.com from a while ago. I think, I’ll go and check, whether there might be something suitable for me, while bearing in mind that I can work only 3 hours per day max for the time being. Maybe there’s something of minor length and effort, which I have matching qualifications for. It’s worth a look (and maybe worth a try, too).

“Meat” by Terry Bisson | Project Westbound

I’m thinking of registering for an academic program teaching fictional interpretation. Here’s a little snippet I did a while ago. Original sci-fi short by Terry Bisson, translation into the German by my modest self.

It’s a Start…

It’s a Start…

… what do you think of this? Made my previous website all over using wordpress as a content management system. I find it provides everything I need, while being robust, well supported, fairly easy to manage, fast loading and with … Continue reading

Over the course of the following days, I’ll update the content behind the navigation items above and below the logo. Stay tuned!

Site relocation largely completed!

oFor the past few days, I have reconfigured my domain nieke.de in order to run it as a wordpress multisite or ‘network‘ as they call it. This means, I get to use my blogs previously – and still simultaneously – hosted on wordpress.com on my own domain nieke.de This was basically a dress rehearsal for the consideration of (commercially) offering my expertise to other parties. I’m not all sure as to the latter yet, as the effort that went into this was not a small one (at least not initially). And the more activity, the more these sites will come under attack from spammers and robots and botnets and whatnot.

However, for now I’m pleased to find that moving content and adjusting all settings went fairly seemlessly. All content including media (images, videos, audio) is available, all plugins required to run embedded media are working as well. I’m impressed with how robust and well supported this platform is. My next steps will be to connect the bulk of my social media hangouts to my blogs, so that I get to populate content there from once central location/web nucleus, which is – my wordpress ‘network’. 🙂 I also plan on incorporating and using email lists for semi-regular ‘news blasts’ as well as setting up events and – in the far future – my own download store for music. (that is not set in stone, yet, it’s merely a thought for now). Again: All this follows the idea of optimizing communication as in: Post once, read ‘everywhere’.

Wish me luck! 🙂 And if you happen upon any remaining errors, feel free to drop me a line 😉
Have a great day,

w.

Hätte ich nicht gedacht: Der Rotgefiederte versöhnt mich mit der Welt. Geniale Stellungnahme zu Marushas bedauernswerter Heimsuchung von präseniler – oder post-post-pubertärer? – Demenz.

Partial Mixing and Control Automation with Audio Kontrol 1 (Native Instruments – YouTube

Pls. find another clip I have recorded in order to introduce partial automation using Native Instrument’s Audio Kontrol 1. It’s really minimal, basic outboard control and maybe my enthusiasm is a bit over the top here. I guess, I was thrilled to see that “outboard control” was possible at all using Audio Kontrol 1.

Chromebook vs. Mac?

I happened upon this article on G+ today:

7 Reasons Your Church Should Stop Buying Apple Computers and Move to Chromebooks | unseminary.

While I’m reluctant as to Rich Birch’s reasoning being appliccable to creative people and content producers other than writers, I do think that he has a good point or two as far as the expense-productivity-ratio is concerned, particularly in regards to field staff, who live in the browser and on email most of the time. And ironically, it was the very company he pitches Chromebooks against that introduced the digital hub strategy as the precursor to the cloud strategy more than a decade ago. Ten years later it turns out that the late Steve Job lived up to his enigma of a visionary once again as the industry at large and Apple in particular continue to shift more and more of their data, apps and overall processing power previously residing on standalone computers to the cloud.

I think it naturally follows from above linked sources that you don’t require a Mac or other standalone PC-like device any longer to harness the power that resides in the cloud. If Rich Birch is happy using a Chromebook, fair enough. An iPad or other tablet might do just as well.
