This blog contains random thoughts from my daily life.
However, it does not relate to my job.
Currently, I am managing director of the digital manufactory intosite , co-founder of the interactive entertainment studio intolabs as well as managing director of fast forward imaging. In addition, I am responsible for the digital development within the GANSKE MEDIA GROUP, facilitating the endeavors to evolve the digital business of the company.
Recently, I worked at SCHOLZ & FRIENDS Group in Controlling Systems & Information
Washday - I can actually SEE something now…. and it’s a beautiful day.
I really don’t get it… but I am sure there is an ingenious concept behind it. You can sit on it, I might add.
Seen at the bus stop on the Rathausmarkt in front of Hamburg’s city hall.

While studying the naval map of the Süderelbe (Southern Elbe) and trying to identify the most important buoys and leading lights, the sun went down and everything started to glow. Although the lights are kind of distracting while navigating, it’s a beautiful way to explore the southern part of the Hamburg harbour and the definite highlight, the Köhlbrandbrücke (Köhlbrand Bridge).
Since I collected all my movie tickets since 1996 (at least that’s what I hope) and only remember 3 movies I have seen in a movie theatre before that (Beethoven in 1992, Aladdin in 1992 and The Lion King in 1994), I came to the following conclusions:
I have been to the movies at an average of at least once per month in the last 20 years and about 2.56 times per month during 1998 and 2008. That’s 308 movies in those 10 years alone, the most busy year being ‘04 with 49 visits to the cinema. That’s an average of 0.94 times per week in 2004.
As unremarkably as it may sound, I can still remember all of those movies in some detail and many of them I have seen various times over the past years. I plan to write something about every movie I’ve seen, no matter how dull the experience was.
All in all, I am not sure wether this is going to be an interesting story or a depressing flashback at my youth with nothing interesting to do in the countryside.
IKEA: Experience the power of a bookbook
I especially recommend the Grosstankstelle Brandshof (Billhorner Röhrendamm 4, 20539 Hamburg), a vintage car gas station from 1953, operated true to the era since 2010 with an appendant café, the Erfrischungsraum.
The café tries to be authentic to the 1950s, from the waiter’s clothes to the dishes and offerings. The Kalte Schnauze is of particular awesomeness. So try it out and join them on facebook if you like.
The best looking car and an alright looking bridge I guess. #Mustang #Ford #GoldenGate #SanFrancisco #orange
Well, not exactly my favourite color, but other than that… love it.
While looking for decent vintage car dealers in northern Germany (believe me, there are only very few, if any), I came across a vintage car junk yard in Trappenkamp, 75 km north of Hamburg. In fact, it is the backyard of a local vintage car repair shop and I can attest that the cars for sale did not look much better the ones you are about to see… still, they made up for some nice pictures.

"Introducing the first all electric american super car…" - proudly built in Silicon Valley, USA.
For any Tesla enthusiast out there, this might be even better: the supercharged $ 500,000+ Renovo Coupe (Shelby Daytona Coupe lookalike), all electric with over 500 horsepower and 1,000 ft-lb torque. This true american sports car, 4 years in the making will hit the market with a limited number of vehicles in 2015.
More impressive images and information can be found on the verge. So if you’re up for it, check it out.
