Constantin Seibt is extending the attention span!

just saw this by chance: CH journalist of the year

i love the way consti writes: very twisted and unique! his x-mas series about toywar ( ie "THE BOMB" written for left wing WOZ) established our role as counter culture heros in switzerland ;-) ... the etoy.MANAGEMENT even felt forced to issue a share certificate for the best war report back then.

i did not expect that people in my home country would vote for constantin.

wow! this is realy good news. one of the values of seibts work is that he is able to cover stories that are too complicated for the rest of the news system. he wrote some of the best articles about the World Economic Forum in Davos... even if he did not get access to the place of action because schwab and co probably knew how twisted his articles can be. too bad! not letting him enter was not stopping him from writing the best articles about the bizarre side effects of WEF.

since many years consti is the only journalist in switzerland i really deeply respect and trust. he went his very own and often controversial way while lots of his peers obviously bended for a slime-career in the news business.

seibt can be very radical but is never stupid or without self-irony.

he knows very well how problematic news production is. most journalists i met during years of "art business and twisted activism" really believe that they are the good guys making the world a better place by transmitting neutral information. well... my cell phone does the same and sometimes i really hate it for doing this ;-)

... the problem lies in the fact that at the end of the day all journalists make a living by selling stories which means that they automatically adapt to the market: the audience, editors, marketing frogs, even the people they interview. they do almost everything for their story.

this is logical and ok as long as they know that they are not innocent and "clean" players in the game. consti does not just know this he also makes this approach part of his articles. and thats rare. congrats consti!

what do the reddit nerds use for backup?

interesting discussion on backup for mere mortals over at programming.reddit.com. in particular, note this quote:
If it's so easy, I keep wondering why I can't find a program created by someone who's put just a bit of extra effort into it to make something that's generic enough for others to use. Not idiot-proof, but something I can set up in 15 minutes by specifying the machines to back up, the directories to include, those to exclude (in a simply way...rsync loses here), and how much history to keep.
