Was wir aus einem Lied darüber, wie die Gauchos gehen, lernen können.

Posted on July 16th, 2014.

Als die deutschen Spieler während der Feierlichkeiten anlässlich der gewonnenen Weltmeisterschaft ein Lied anstimmten, das die Niedergeschlagenheit der Argentinier zum Inhalt hatte, folgten peinlich-berührte Schelten auf deutschen Nachrichtenportalen und Twitter auf dem Fuße. Das zeigt, zum Abschluss dieser großartigen WM, dass die Wahrnehmung von Fußball von der allumfassenden Euphorie immer stärker verzerrt wird.

Guess who’s back…

Posted on May 10th, 2014.

It has been a very long time since I last posted on my blog here. Quite a bit has happened in my life since then. Moreover, I have arrived at a point now where I decided that it would be worthwhile to take the time to start writing again, and, more importantly, to make a lasting […]

Frank Buschmann oder “Social Media – richtig gemacht”

Posted on February 28th, 2013.

Social Media Marketing ist in unserer Gesellschaft angekommen. Und auch wenn der erste unreflektierte Hype mittlerweile abebbt, scheinen die richtigen Schlüsse noch nicht überall gezogen worden zu sein. Wenn man noch immer von Beutel abgepackter Salatmischungen aufgefordert wird, die entsprechende Marke zu liken, muss man kein Philosoph sein um sich die Frage nach dem Warum? zu erlauben. Allen, […]

Something else: A logo for a YouTube Channel

Posted on January 25th, 2013.

My brother loves playing video games (so do I, but I have basically no suitable hardware here in Ireland). He has recently started his own channel on Youtube, where publishes videos from his favorite games. The channel is called “The Schenkels Show” and today I spent some hours building a simple Minecraft-themed logo for him.

A small JavaScript animation (plus explanation)

Posted on January 22nd, 2013.

Apart from the websites I have talked you through in my last post, I am of course still engaged in the ongoing work on ökoCheck, our nice wee iOS-App. If you have checked out the app or if you have watched the walkthrough video (which you can find here), you will know that the app […]

New stuff in the making!

Posted on January 18th, 2013.

I am currently working on a number of projects which haven’t appeared on my portfolio site yet. Partly because most of them are still work in progress and partly because I want to hold them back until I can add the whole bunch of them to the site. Nevertheless I thought it might just be […]
