At the movement we are looking for a new office in the center of Berlin with around 100 sqm. If you have something to offer please let me know. Even on a private basis I look for a new flat. Favored spot is West Berlin (Charlottenburg/Wilmersdorf) but other parts of the city will do it as well.
This is more a collection of projects and things which inspire me than a daily updated blog about ongoing processes in the field of interaction design. I am writing about info and data visualization, new inventions and ideas. If you think I should read or see something please drop a comment or send me a note.
