Rafael, you went far over limits.
I hope that you are realizing the consequences. You are losing the only real artist who looked on you as
a potential equal. I was wrong doing so and I will never do this mistake again.
Enjoy the rest of your career.

why the internet is a good place for art

On the internet the artist has no boss, no mediator. There is no institutional structure, no publisher, no one between the artist and the audience. This anarchism makes for a spontaneous environment where weird things can happen. I appreciate the unusual and the irrational.


google comes from another planet

google logo

Google is not made by humans. Google is a company founded by the Oogles, a lifeform that started in a multiverse far far away, somewhere in the dimensional continium, a place beyond our conception. The Oogles are so advanced it is hard for us to grasp what they are about. They can basically do anything they want in any reality… they rule the multiverse. As a social experiment they started a company on our planet… Google.

They want to take over the power on our planet. Not by force, just by doing things better than any human ever could. They will always allow humans to start their own companies, and just for fun they will let these companies thrive for a while. But they will always win, at anything, and they will offer everything for free. Just to watch us humans try. They’re not evil, they’re just over ambitious and they have a strange sense of humor.

.com and beyond

icann vote

Today a historic change to internet’s domain name system was announced: Big players can now buy their own top level domain. A top level domain is the last few characters at the end of a domain name, like .com or .org or .info. Icann (the organisation that controls domain names) has decided you can now buy your own top level domain (TLD) if you pay over US$ 180,000.

Basically this means you will visit .google instead of

It also means that big companies and countries will look more professional and authoritative then us regular folk who buy cheap .com domains.

“Today’s decision will usher in a new Internet age,” said Peter Dengate Thrush, Chairman of Icann’s Board of Directors. “We have provided a platform for the next generation of creativity and inspiration.”

I’m curious if this will make .com’s feel old & obsolete or fresh & independent.

I’m looking for an intern


Hello world wide web,

I am looking for an intern. I am going to do research on 3D games, so anyone who loves games, makes games, 3D modelling, proto typing… that would be great.
I will be in Berlin the next few months but it can also be a Skype-based internship if you want.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you, you e-mail me here.
