I just got an article accepted on Slashdot! Basically, my gran (dad’ mum, whom I call ‘Oma’ because she was born in Germany) is blind in one eye and her other eye is deteriorating rapidly. I’m looking for technological solutions to help her. Read the full article on Slashdot.

Oh, and the university didn’t like my dissertation, giving it only 52%. It was too journalistic for them, and not disciplined enough. I don’t care for being disciplined. I wrote something which in my mind is of immense important to our society - our world, civilizations - and prefer to have scored lowly for that than to have written a dissertation on some mind numblingly boring (but ‘disciplined’) topic and receiving 70+% for it.
