Quora Q/A: Var det svært at gå fra papir til computer-keyboard og skærm?

paper and pen/pencil/ball pen/ink/chalk/burned matches/coffee/blood – notebooks, notepads, free postcards residing in my jacket inner pocket, post-its, newspaper margins, “ANY piece of paper, please!” or “anyone got a PEN!?”

typewriter, manual – manual press, which took some INSISTING – there was one in particular, a Groma, which only wrote “gold” (still have it, afraid of using it, for fear of jinxing it…), and manual use of correction paper or fluid “paperwhite” to “delete” errors.

Svaret på engelsk: As an author, if you started writing on paper, was the transition to computer keyboard and screen difficult? – Quora

Dødens Oprindelse

og dermed livets

‎”Every creature alive on the earth today represents an unbroken line of life that stretches back to the first primitive organism to appear on this planet; and that is about three billion years. That really is immortality. For if that line of life had ever broken, how could we be here?”

Slut på et samlet EU?

Den hollandske forfatter David VAN REYBROUCK fremlægger en statsmodel, der giver tilfældigt udvalgte borgere ansvar for anbefalinger inden for EU på tværs af parti- og-alle-mulige-andre-skel

I et åbent brev til præsidenten for Europakommissionen, Jean-Clause Juncker, foreslår den hollandske forfatter David VAN REYBROUCK en anden vej til fælles Europa end den gamle model med at lade folk stemme hvert 4-5 år. han mener, at vi kun har indtil Brexit at vågne op, fordi vi risikerer at den europæiske venstredrejning – der giver stemme til en gammel, indestængt vrede forårsaget af flertalsdiktur [også kaldet demokratur] – forårsager en splittelse af Europa.

Artiklen er skrevet lige efter valget af Donald Trump til præsident for USA, og der er derfor måske kun 10 måneder tilbage til at handle i.
