LeadAwards 2009 Commendation

April 3rd, 2009

The reason why I was in Hamburg the last 2 days, was because of the LeadAwards 2009. today and tomorrow received a commendation in the category weblog of the year. The LeadAwards is one of the most import awards for print and online work in Germany. The big difference to other awards is the fact that you can’t submit your work or website, they have to find you. So I’m very happy with the commendation! Like I said before: content is king, so a big thank you to all those today and tomorrow content creators.
But that was only one part of my visit to Hamburg. The weather was excellent, which is quite important when you visit a city. I had really great time thanks to my private tour guide Miguel. I also had the chance to go onto the roof of the Flak Tower IV in St. Pauli. You can’t find a better view over city than from up there (but I really liked all the concrete), thank you Judith!

(The normal today and tomorrow updates should resume shortly.)

Hemeroscopium House by Ensamble Studio

March 6th, 2009

The Hemeroscopium House by Ensamble Studio is … I’m speechless. It only took 7 days to build the structure, just look at the massive beams. The 20 ton granite stone on top is a counterweight to the whole structure. Amazing!
