As much as Google should be critically observed in general, their campaign for a free internet is supported by hundreds of credible organizations – including for example the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
The Declaration for Internet Freedom is a similar initiative, which is also trying to influence policy makers before the World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT-12) under UN/ ITU leadership.

Carneval of Cultures 2010/05/23

When almost 100 groups parading through Berlin´s ex-61 part of Berlin on Pentecote, you can witness the probably most international parade you can find anywhere in the world. It may not be as well organized as the Thanksgiving Parade in NYC, not as colorful as a day in Rio and not (yet) as popular as the NottingHill Carnival in London — but it can build on its grass-root origins in Germany´s capital, where one 7th of the population are immigrants (using this word purposely – to describe people in a variety of status´).

It is loud and funny – it is colorful and tolerant —it is peaceful and motivating.

Even  the young crowd discovered some while ago that they can stop at a variety of cocktail-tents along the way and drink Caipirinha or CubaLibre, while watching an ever-growing crowd, listening to the drums from the parade. “This is Berlin!” , the message says, …”and here we are celebrating our joint co-existence. We are from around the world, but we live and work here, so — we ARE Berlin!”

of course it is easy — but still, taking just a little time — I remember the days, when I used ancient blogging software and programmed all html myself — so this WordPress should be so much easier — but the customization is taking its time…

wishing for more time – like this I really could get back to developing this blog and the other web sites which are in their early (or late) stages for much too long — but how can we cut out 36 hours out of a day ???
