So I meet somebody nice have lots of fun at a festival in Turkey, and all that time he’s a popstar. A real live popstar. Off all the things you could be! WARNING: Shameless plug: The band is called Githead, the music is quite nice to listen to. I’m not going to tell you who I know otherwise I’ll just get lots of groupies hassling me because they want him for his body.
If he thinks I’m going to treat him different now that I know, he can forget it. (Now to find out if I can get a free CD.)

Today is International Youth Day, the subject for this year is Youth and Climate Change. Whoever says the young shouldn’t have anything to say about the issues in the world are wrong. They are the ones who will inherit the earth, so they should be able to participate in a finding solution as they will be implementing it for years to come.
Team up! Organize! Celebrate! Take action!
I’m going to the Boom Festival, so chances are you’ll only be getting the things I preprogrammed. I’d like to leave you with some parting words:

The Fraunhofer institute is trying to find a replacement for MP3, their current project is designed to last 10 years. Do we really need to have a replacement for MP3 sooner than that? The updates for MPEG came in closer succession, but were required because compression of video signals had such high priority.
You might say MP4, but it is actually MPEG4 part 14 and is not en encoding format, but a transport or container format. The encoding of the content is still done with MP3, AAC or other format.
I wonder what will be the trick to further compress the data, and whether it will be even more closely related to the MPEG4 standard.
