The content of this site should continually change like a Kaleidoscope any time you browse through it, and it should display interesting thoughts and ideas. Of course, I am still far away from this. :-) But everybody needs a target! I have greatly enhanced this kaleidoscopical aspect at my
German site Klein Singen with interesting stuff about "zweisprachige Erziehung" (bilingual education), "Statistik" (statistics), especially the art of lying with statistical methods (Lügen mit Statistik). The English equivalent of this website is under construction: The Art of Lying with Statistics. You can find there e.g.
There is a related topic about unscientific methods used by esoteric approaches: Logik wider alle Vernunft.

Some facts and lots of pictures about Brittany can be found on this website.

The main topic of this site remains bilingualism, i.e. the bilingual upbringing and education of children. As I think that being bilingual, or being capable of understanding and speaking other languages is essential to me. The section about bilingualism has been completely redesigned and changed in content Bilingual Upbringing of Children in the Home
I have added other bits and pieces to this site as well: A list of articles about text classification and data mining, which is directly related to my former professional work.

My preferred operating system is Linux. So, when I founded a training company in 2007, - Bodenseo -, it was clear from scratch that it will provide specialized training courses in Linux and OpenSource based programming languages. I am a lecturer of Python, giving numerous Python courses and seminars both for beginners and for advanced learners. These trainings usually take place in one of the most beautiful holiday areas of Germany, i.e. Lake Constance.

The courses are in German and in English. Via airport Friedrichshafen, Bodenseo is just a stone's throw away from Italy or London. Bodenseo is one of the most important Python providers in Canada as well. So, you can book a Python training in Toronto as well. You can choose the ideal class at our website Python Training Courses international, our website dedicated to the US and Canadian market.

About Linux

Wisdom of the day:

We may hope that machines will eventually compete with men in all purely intellectual fields. But which are the best ones to start with? Many people think that a very abstract activity, like the playing of chess, would be best. It can also be maintained that it is best to provide the machine with the best sense organs that money can buy, and then teach it to understand and speak English. -- Alan M. Turing

If you are interested in the so-called intellectual property (or German "Geistiges Eigentum"), you might be interested in the website of Bernd Klein called "Geistiges Eigentum: Die geistige Enteignung des Individuums". Unfortunately, this websites is mainly German so far, but nevertheless their are some English parts in it, like the interview with Simon Indelicate from the Indelicates: "New Art for the People"
