GeoFlickrGoogleMapsBlogging

Geobloggers combines Flickr tags and Google Maps.

I tried to tag my last years Lotusphere photos, and it worked fine. If you own a GPS capable camera, its easy to combine maps and photos.

Unfortunatly, Google Maps is not available for good old Europe, only UK is available. So tagging your photos from your last trip to Paris will put your pictures right in the middle of nowhere. Zooming out the map you find yourself somewhat east of London in the deep blue sea.

As long as you do not have a GPS capable camera, the easiest way of getting latitudes and longitudes is via Google Maps for the US, or MultiMap for the rest of the world. Then add your taggs to your photo in flickr, and geobloggers will read the tags via your RSS feed. Done.

Must Read for the Notes Geek

This is a a must read for the real Notes Geek at Ed Brills Site. I knew many of these Notes trivia questions, but learned a lot from the discussion around these questions.

  • What was the „Easter Egg“ in Notes R5?
  • Where did the name Shimmer (it was the code name for iNotes)
    come from?
  • When was Lotus purchase by IBM? For how much?
  • Who came up with the name „hinky minky“?
  • What was Notes‘ original name?
  • How many bottles of Scotch have been seen on the podium during
    a Lotusphere session?

Very funny. If you are a Notes geek, read the answers and many other stories at Ed Brill.

Große Haufen

Wir sind momentan am Bad renovieren und wollen in diesem Zuge auch alle Sanitärobjekte erneuern. Als ich mich jetzt nach einem neuen WC umschaute fiel mir auf, das die meisten neuen WC’s zwar alle sehr schön aussehen, aber vom Durchflußquerschnitt sehr eng bemessen sind.

Eng bemessen? Manche Leute haben Probleme…

Change or Die

All leadership comes down to this: changing people’s behavior. Why is that so damn hard? Science offers some surprising new answers — and ways to do better.“

We’re talking actual life or death now. Your own life or death. What if a well-informed, trusted authority figure said you had to make difficult and enduring changes in the way you think and act? If you didn’t, your time would end soon — a lot sooner than it had to. Could you change when change really mattered? When it mattered most?

Changing the behavior of people isn’t just the biggest challenge in health care. It’s the most important challenge for businesses trying to compete in a turbulent world, says John Kotter, a Harvard Business School professor who has studied dozens of organizations in the midst of upheaval: „The central issue is never strategy, structure, culture, or systems. The core of the matter is always about changing the behavior of people.“
