Commenting now possible again

Commenting is now possible. I switched to another theme to avoid the hazzle to tweak the theme. Maybe when i have more time i will further develop my own theme and incorporate comments. For the moment i will stick to the P2 theme.

With intelligence, there is a phenomenon called the Flynn effect — each generation, scores go up about 10 points. Enriched environments are making kids smarter. With creativity, a reverse trend has just been identified and is being reported for the first time here: American creativity scores are falling.

Youtube figures

  • May 2010 – 2 billion billion views per day
  • March 2010 – 24 hours of video uploaded every minute
  • October 2009 – 1 billion views per day
  • January 2008 – 10 hours of video uploaded every minute
  • December 2005 – 8 million views per day

“Two billion video streams is a large number but on average people are only spending 15 minutes a day on the site compared to five hours a day watching TV.”

Back in Saudi

Back in Saudi Arabia. I think it’s more than two years ago since my last visit. It’s always  a very special experience traveling to Saudi. This is not the typical travel destination, besides for making the pilgrimage to mecca. Getting a visa is quite difficult. You need a offical invitation from a local sponsor, some kind of official letter from the German trade chamber (if i’m correct) and only then you can apply for a business visa.

On the way from the airport to the hotel i discovered some new construction sites. One main project currently under construction is the King Abdullah Financial district. The other huge project is the new University Princess Noura bint AbdulRahman University for Women. Both are $ USD billion projects.

Below a photo from the view of the Kingdom Tower. You can see down town Riyadh an the Al Faisaliah Tower in the background. Blue sky, a few clouds and a clear view. Sorry for the low quality shot, but my business cellphone lacks a decent camera.
