Some things you got to do. For example, visit an amusement park with your youngest daughter when on holiday. Took the opportunity to try out ART filter 3 some more on my Olympus E-PL1. So here are some results: (more…)

N.B.: This is a blog post in “Plattdeutsch”, or what I remember of it from sitting with my grandma and her friends as a child. It is probably incorrectly transcribed and only understandable if you know it a bit and read it to yourself aloud. Here goes:
Nu shall ick dat ook mol versöken mit een plattdütschen Blogpost. Ich heff man blots wat ganz Modernes to vertelln. Hüüt wor de Dog wo’s de nije iPhones vünn Apple geven shallt. Man blots in kleene Zahlen un uff Vorbestellung. Wat ick allens treulicht macht hefft. (more…)

All Play And No Work …

June 3, 2010

… would make the iPad a rather dull computer. But I’m happy to report that I found a serious application for it. This week, I’m at the WOC 2010 in Berlin, the World Ophthalmic Conference. It started with a few computer hiccups on the side of the event managers and no one could register and print out their schedules and identity badges. Eventually, the hostesses gave up and let us in anyway.
Unfazed, the iPad served me well as a note taking device in the lectures. I used Pages to jot down interesting points in a bullet point list under a professional looking title and subtitle.
Back home in ground level ophthalmology, we often work through these conferences in our local MD’s circle. I suspect these notes won’t need much work to change them into a passable Keynote presentation. After each lecture, I emailed the resulting Pages document to my Gmail account, so it’s safe (?) in the cloud.
The lectures weren’t dull, either. Pictured below is Prof. U. Schiefer (at right) in a hands-on demonstration of perimetry parameters with some shanghaied colleagues.

These days, holiday plans have been made and it’s become clear: my son and I will be going to the 40-èmes Rencontres d’Arles in July. We’ve been there last year and were totally stoked by the athmosphere, the city, the exhibitions and the portfolio reviews. Below is one Pt/Pd print I’ll be showing at this year’s reviews:
