I was lucky enough to attend the "German-Israeli Minerva School for Ubiquitous Display Environments" from end of august on and it was a great experience to learn from the lectures and different cultures. It was also an experience to see how other researchers move towards possible solutions within the workshop and collaboratively create and work on ideas. Many thanks to all the responsible staff at this place. Oh and really delicious food…
And of course (a little late) here are some impressions i took with my camera hehe..

I’ve been to america for some weeks to visit my sister, take a vacation, and see my niece for the first time. Except for the great weather, it was a wonderful experience to live like and with americans and have time with my very cute and already sooo smart niece :)
I’ve also been to a nice club in rochester where a dj from 95.5, wearing sunglasses, broadcasted live to michigan statewide. While the club-music was kinda used (but great though), the imagination that anything of his act is broadcasted statewide was… interesting hehe..
Now vacation is over and guess what… somehow i miss the automatic in cars, ac everywhere, and so on hehe
During this great time i took a lot of pictures and here are some of them showing impressions of that weeks. In all america is a great country and i guess i’ll be back :D
