Picture of my space…

One the hardest weeks I ever had…

Hi… let me tell you about my last week. It started on Monday morning – say – on 3:45 am. I got up that early because I had to take a plane to Frankfurt very early. So far everything went well until we stood on the runway for hours waiting for the Frankfurt airport to…

Interesting Clipping: The Box of Freedom

HI… as usual I am listening audio books when jogging through the woods. One model really struck me (I nearly bumped into a tree while thinking about it): Think about most animals or robots: There is a direct reaction to a stimulus.
