From SLC to SFO, what a travel! :-)

After having visited the VisWeek 2010 in Salt Lake City, we (Ivan and I) drove via Hoover dam and Death Valley to Davis, California, and then San Francisco.  What a great travel!  :-)  A selection of my photos are available from PicasaWeb

St. Gotthard tunnel -- wow!

Mid-October, this year, I really was impressed (and still I am!) about the completion of the St. Gotthard train tunnel in Switzerland.  Wow! 

The Third & The Seventh -- great graphics!

End of Sept., this year, I saw the video "The Third & The Seventh".  Amazing computer graphics, I'd say!

2053 -- a shocking video by I. Hashimoto!

Mid-September, this year, I was shocked by a  (really impressively made) video by Isao Hashimoto, documenting the nuclear bomb explosions since the 2nd world war -- 2053 until 1998!  Just think of it! 

Ove Daae Lampe -- a show star! :-)

Ove from our research group participated in a show-like dissemination competition here in Bergen!  Heia, Ove!  He almost made it to the finals.  Very well done, Ove!  :-) 

Jarke van Wijk -- an artist!

Having visited The Netherlands, I also had the chance to see the exhibition of Jarke van Wijk in Breda.  I liked it very much!  :-)  It's not really often that art and technology meets that well.  :-) 

EuroVis 2010 in Bordeaux was great! :-)

After having enjoyed EuroVis 2010 in Bordeaux, France, I posted my happiness.  :-)  Several others liked it.  :-)  Of course, I also thought about how making EuroVis 2011 (in Bergen!) at least equally nice!  :-) 

Art in Bergen (Breivik's cube), only parked!

In May this year, I was actually positively surprised that reasonable art was put up in a prominent place here in Bergen (and I posted a picture of it).  Unfortunately, I had to find out (shortly after) that this piece of art only was parked here in Bergen (until it's eventual destination [in Oslo!] gets ready).  Sigh! 

Enjoyable evening 60°N!

May 8, 2010, I was enjoying the evening (at about 9pm) on a nearby mountain (nearby to Bergen, Norway) -- it can be so unbelievably nice here!  :-)  Afterwards, I posted a short 360° surround view video to Facebook.

Thank you, Stanislav Petrow!

Apr. 23, 2010, I posted a comment on an online Der Spiegel article about Stanislav Petrow, who (according to this interesting article) saved the world in 1983!  Once again: thank you, Stanislav!
