I’ve become quite addicted to this nice little gadget which allows you to elf yourself. I am using it for all my Christmas cards – last year, I actually sent out about a dozen of real, cardboard Christmas cards, but I might be too lazy this year. Even my estranged father has switched to virtual Christmas wishes now – so why bother?

Elf Yourself

Here is one version of my Elf Yourself Christmas cards (I must have created at least half a dozen by now), featuring my avatar dancing with three random strangers. You can choose between 1 to 4 elves, and either upload your own pics or use random pics or a combination thereof.

An Evening at the Net.Culture.Lab

A place called Net.Culture.Lab opened its gates in both Vienna and Dornburn this month – Eric Poscher, one of its local facilitator, told me about it and so we checked it out yesterday.

It’s mainly going to be a meeting and work place for anyone in Vienna and Vorradelberg interested in or pursueing a project in the vast area of ‘net culture’ (another buzz term I am not deeply fond of, but it works to impress investors; Telekom Austria is funding the project). And what a nice space it is! Located in a 5th floor penthouse in Dornburn, it well allows the visitor to imagine herself as an elevated being, disconnected from the hustle and bustle of Vorarlberg. Amazing what mere 20 metres can do!

I’ll try to hang out as much as possible in this place – open to non-members every Thursday evening. I am almost beginning to regret to leave now – but that’s just a fleeting thought of course;-)
