33C3 - Day 4

#33C3 at the Hamburg Congress Center

Puh, it's almost over. Day 4 and I'm exhausted.

There have been a lot of things going on. Very interesting talks and people, small games and projects and a huge amount of new impressions. I came here with the goal to inspire my passion about the constructive usage of technology for any purposes - and have found no disappointment in that sense 🙂

I've loads of Pictures still to process and hope I will find some time during my flights.

A very amusing suggestion is Konfusius' talk about Hebocon. That was a funny one.

So in the spirit of the 33C3 - Be excellent to each other. And have a great new year!

33C3 - Day 2

Good morning Hamburg! It's 10:00 in the morning an I am walking through the Apothekergarten towards the Congress Center. It's quiet on the streets.
In this moment I realize, that it's the time after Christmas. It's winter. It's the time of the year, where a lot of people took holidays to recover from the year, to reflect about all the things that have happened and that are going on. It's a time of peace.

Be excellent to each other!

I'm here at the 33C3 - The 33rd Chaos Communication Congress. It's awesome! 🙂

People here are very friendly. Due to general "Verpeiltheit" I've forgotten my Lenovo power supply unit. Also the nearby Saturn has none of those on stock (that's a shame! You have a Lenovo section but such crucial elements not on stock?!?)
Fortunately, since it's quite common I always find a way to charge it - From a huge power back with a lot of special adapters to some friendly people who borrow me their supply.
Lesson learned: If possible, always prefer a device that is quite common, so you can borrow equipment to and from other people.


There are still a lot of things going on. Stay tuned and remember: Be excellent to each other 🙂

Greetings from 33C3!

Greetings from the 33C3 from Hamurg! Here you get a Screenshot of the current internet conditions here. Awesome!

Internet on the Congress

Currently there are a lot of things to discover, and many interesting talks to attend, so I'm quite busy right now.

Will try to give some updates while I'm here, still too excited.

This year I couldn't participate in the CERT, since there are already too many people. Well, at least I feel safe here 🙂
