Last week, I had the pleasure of visiting the GEN Summit, an international media conference with 500 participants which was organized by the Global Editors Network for the fifth time. This year’s title: “Prototyping the Future of News”. I compiled the most interesting tweets from many sessions (hashtag: #GENsummit).

The Complete New Funk Times P.Funk History Double Issue 4/5 from 1990

leave a comment »

Rolling Stone Magazine has just published the story “Doctor Atomic” about my favorite funk musician George Clinton (issue #1234, cover date: May 7, 2015). They printed a photo I took during my 1986 home story on George’s Funky Farm and the cover of the P.Funk History Double Issue of the P.Funk newsletter New Funk Times which I used to publish from the late ’80s to early ’90s, with permission of George Clinton.

The NFT website has been hacked quite a while ago and I haven’t had the time yet to bring it back. Therefore I am using my personal blog to post scans of the issue you see in Rolling Stone – with cartoons by Pedro Bell, Overton Loyd and Howard Priestley. Enjoy!

The 64-bit iTunes vs. Last.FM Scrobbler problem has finally been solved!

leave a comment »

Last.FM Forum ComplaintsIf you don’t use the music website Last.FM (old blog post in German), you don’t need to read any further. The current good news only apply to those who use the Last.FM Scrobbler with iTunes for Windows. Since Apple updated the music player of our choice to a version that is fully 64-bit (12.1.0.71, Windows 7), the Scrobbler did not detect songs that were played by iTunes anymore. Last.FM members have been complaining about it in the website’s forum since January 30, 2015.

When I just opened the Last.FM Scrobbler to check my Spotify scrobbles I finally received the notice for an update that had been promised by Last.FM for a weeks. I installed the update, and this did solve the problem. My 64-bit iTunes (12.1.2.27, Windows 7) scrobbles its plays again (including songs played on my iPod). For whatever reason, Last.FM did not consider it necessary (yet) to announce this major ‘bug fix’ in its Twitter feed. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

IJF_small_19-04-_2015_16-22-11Judging from its Twitter feed (hashtag: #IJF15), the International Journalism Festival which was held in Perugia/Italy this weekend must have been a very interesting.

It will be followed by events in Paris (April 28), Madrid, London, Amsterdam, Warsaw and Prague later in the year which also will be free of charge (link to press release).
