DEL bringt die „Schwalbenliste“

Aufs Eis hechten und sich über ein Tor freuen kann man machen, muss man aber nicht. Ohne Grund auf gefrorenen Wasser herumschlittern und liegenbleiben ist im Eishockey Code of Cool verboten.

Das hindert natürlich einige nicht daran sich ohne Fremdeinwirkung mit schauspielerischen Fähigkeiten zu engagieren und sich von dieser Fußballkrankheit anstecken zu lassen.

Mit einem weiteren Schritt nach vorne führt die Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) eine Schwalbenliste, samt Geldstrafen, für den schnellsten Mannschaftssport der Welt ein.

„Ein System, das unsportliches Verhalten in Form von ‚Schwalben‘ oder vorgetäuschten Verletzungen erkennt und sanktioniert, ist da ein weiterer und wichtiger Schritt“, sagte Jörg von Ameln, Leiter Spielbetrieb der DEL.


Eisbären wieder im Fuchsbau übertragt das Testspiel der neuen Liga-Partner live

Damals, in der kleinsten Liga der Welt, hieß es immer wieder Dynamo gegen Dynamo. Heute um 19.30 Uhr ist es wieder soweit, jetzte sind es die Eisbären gegen die Füchse im ersten Testspiel der Saison.

Die einstigen Dauerrivalen sind ab der Spielzeit 2017/18 Kooperationspartner. Nachwuchstalente der Eisbären, für die der Einsatz in der DEL zu früh ist, können in der 2. Liga Spielpraxis sammeln. Anders rum lassen sich natürlich Füchse auch für die Eisbären empfehlen.

Wer die jungen Talente scouten will, für den hat das wohl beste Live-Streaming Angebot einer zweiten Liga in Deutschland.

Hack yourself before your wreck yourself

One of the Facebook’s and Google’s early investors, Roger McNamee, regrets that he helped create monsters who want to sell you ever more ads by creating addictive behavior with a substance they harvested from hacking your brain.

Borrowing techniques from the gambling industry, Facebook, Google and others exploit human nature, creating addictive behaviors that compel consumers to check for new messages, respond to notifications, and seek validation from technologies whose only goal is to generate profits for their owners.

I’m always amazed that consumers forget how powerful they are, here’s a simple counter hack: don’t give them your personal information, clicks or likes and don’t buy into addictive illusions.

#IndieWeb Spotlight

It still hurts to see that the initital idea of the Web as a decentralized democratic space is being hijacked by corporations and governments who offer humans drive thru convenience in return for data and control.

Whether it’s using data mining apps in the only two remaining mobile operating systems or if it’s your narcisstic wooden leg that longs for social media fame in exchange for public, never private, selfie information, you are voluntarily giving up large chunks of your right to self reflection and privacy, a key ingredient for the development of an original character with actionable empathy for other human beings.

The great realization is that it’s a simple shift towards the IndieWeb. It might take some time to create self awareness, especially in your daily digital habits, but the benefits for you and everyone else are much larger once you set sail into digital freedom.

Lazy convenience never convinces me, so if you’re stuck in your mind boggling apps and social media streams, it’s time to move to the IndieWeb and create your own networked digital home. I’ll try to provide some tips and tricks on how to move there and place a spotlight on parts of the Web that live in that space for real.

Your content is yours
When you post something on the web, it should belong to you, not a corporation. Too many companies have gone out of business and lost all of their users’ data. By joining the IndieWeb, your content stays yours and in your control.

You are better connected
Your articles and status messages can go to all services, not just one, allowing you to engage with everyone. Even replies and likes on other services can come back to your site so they’re all in one place.

You are in control
You can post anything you want, in any format you want, with no one monitoring you. In addition, you share simple readable links such as These links are permanent and will always work.

Look beyond your own thirst

We’re down for life with one destiny
It seems that the devil keeps testing me
Got the illest part of the recipe
– Q-Tip, Pad & Pen, The Love Movement, 1998

Back in the days when I was a teenager, when I lived in NY without a pager
Too many kids got lost in the malls, giving away their spirit to consumer calls

Touched pucks on the ice, took the sound shore scoring crown twice
Tribe inspired me first, to dig deeper and look beyond your own thirst

Seeds for the future

Saramucci gucci pootchi, Trumpy air trumpet, nouveau riche, superficial signifier illusions, a global conservative right headed for self destruction with middle age manners and selfish politics.

Did we ever learn from Enron, uh Nixon? Now it’s men behaving badly at Daimler, VW again, Audi and BMW, cartel style. We can do better than flipflop Merkel, better than tax evader Starbucks, better than products the world never needed. Bernie planted a seed a long time ago, it’s still growing and needs more water.

We got a thousand points of light, for the homeless man. We got a kinder, gentler, machine gun hand. We got department stores and toilet paper, got styrofoam boxes for the ozone layer. Got a man of the people, says keep hope alive, got fuel to burn, got roads to drive. Keep on rockin‘ in the free world.
