Finally there is a new show! This time I tackle an image shot at the airport here in Bremen. Before that I tell a bit about the dangers of being a teacher, an online paint program written in HTML5, content aware fill in TheOtherProgram and my new job in Berlin. I am looking for a flat there, by the way. The image from the Hamburg train station I had planed to process turned out to be marred by motion blurr. A short discussion about how to avoid this is in the show – I hope I recall this next time. Oh, and I’ll be in England the first week of May 2010. I may have time for a meeting in central London on May 6th – Election Day. Depends on how the kids behave. ;-) More on twitter.
