I’m free!

Clarification: Yes, this means I’ve passed my last exam. It went much, much better than math, so I’m happy now.

And tired.

Back to normal

Okay, I guess it will take some time till I’m back to normal, but this weblog will return to normal now. I’ve collected quite a few links in the last couple of days/weeks. I don’t know where or how I found some of these; sorry I can’t give proper credit here. Let me know if I stole a link from you!

The Exploratorium in San Francisco has a great exhibition at the moment (October 6, 2001 – May 5, 2002): Mathematica. See also this article. Too bad San Francisco is so far away from Germany…

Aber hier in Bonn gibt’s auch bald eine schöne Matheausstellung: Mathematik zum Anfassen. Albrecht Beutelspacher, der Initiator, dürfte zumindest Mathestudenten ein Begriff sein. (Buch “Das ist o. B. d. A trivial” und andere). Die Ausstellung ist überall in Deutschland unterwegs; hier die geplanten Orte bis Mitte 2002.


This one’s for you, Susan: Radio Science Orchestra. They’ve got a section on the theremin and even a virtual theremin to play with! (Some plugins required.)

Blues Brothers Link Archive. (I can’t get enough of the Blues Brothers music. The film simply rocks!)


The Super-Kamiokande experiment exploded, sort of. BBC: Particle physics telescope explodes.

Super Kamiokande Homepage, including photos.

Picture Projects – toward a new documentary. Projects: 360 degrees of criminal justice, akaKurdistan, Farewell to Bosnia, Re: Vietnam – stories since the war.

Wahlen in Deutschland hat ein Archiv mit Wahlergebnissen seit dem 2. Weltkrieg und aktuelle Nachrichten aus der Politik. Interessant und nützlich.

Und für Bonner Studenten der Physik: Das Fortgeschrittenen-Praktikum gibt’s jetzt auch online!

    If this means what I think it means then you have my warmest congratulations on passing your exams! Well done!!

    I hope this means that you’ll be actively blogging again soon.

    Very best wishes for your future.

    Thanks, Duncan!

    Yes, it means I passed the exams and have got my degree today. :-)

    I’m not yet thinking coherently enough to post much, but I’ve got a bunch of links I want to post over the next couple of days…
