Once upon a time, when connecting to the Internet still required a squeaking dial-up modem and people read the news once a day in the paper, patience was already a virtue.

Now, your “news”-feed is flooded with more content every day. “Breaking News” happens every hour and our emotions are played like a fiddle by a plethora of triggers. It didn’t take long for scientists to be able to record the dopamine release, a drug-like effect for each like that we receive.

Last year’s website give-a-way is over and I would like to thank all participants.

The winner is a local Cleveland organization with a great mission: Giving access to books and fostering early reading experiences.

I have been online for a while now. More than half of my life. And I registered my first domain www.novaslap.de in 2004. I dare you to use the wayback-machine to see what it looked like.

My first provider was a friend’s uncle, who had somebody run a server for him, that powered his ecommerce business. His business did not only connect me with html, css, cms, php, osCommerce and so on – it gave me access to web servers. That does not seem to be a big deal now. But it was back than. Considering I a was a minor and could not just open an account with a hosting company. Owning webspace back then was not that common, to put it modestly.

I use the holidays to reflect on the past year, to give back and to do good.

This season, I am donating an entire website project to a local Cleveland charitable organization.
