Long Clock

Will a clock that works flawlessly for 10,000 years become the greatest wonder of the world?

I guess we will have to find a way to test it - as in 10,000 years the clock may have been the left one standing.

Travel with Google Earth

I don't know if you are a big traveller, if you like to see new places from all over the world. I am. I do. I like to travel, and I enjoy walking on the streets of the cities I have never been before, together with my girlfriend.

Google has taken one more step. It has created Google Earth. Now you can "travel" anywhere on the Earth. Basically fly from one place to another - like they put it. Yet not all the globe is covered with high resolution images, but I hope with time this will change and the guys from the Google will fill this lack.

I will do "travel" a lot to places in the USA, as I got amazed by the american way - american dream during my only visit (till now) to this country.

This is a place I have seen with the Google Earth.

Startups vs. Legends

It has been around the thought that startups can do very well. There have been some really good examples for quite a long, e.g. Microsoft. In my opinion, successful companies usually get started by small teams of entrepreneurs, who work really hard in the beginning.

It has been a fact, that many of the startups fail, and I can say many, as I once read only 1 out of 10 will succeed. In the experiment that went on this summer, this number was proved to be at least no accurate, if wrong. It was demonstrated as well what is needed to start a startup. At the end, it finally got to the wide audience that, yes, young people, who are motivated enough and want to do something on their own, can and will succeed.

To summarize, roughly it is needed a minimum amount of money (relative to the place on the planet you want to start up), a quality ideea and few people willing to work hard and give their best.

The summer founders were as a rule very idealistic ... success in a startup depends so much on motivation ...

There are so many places that we miss to see or just don't know they exist - on the web. So I have decided I will post here some thoughts on places I have been or pages, even other blogs that I have visited and I want to have a record of them - for you who reads this and maybe for me, too.
