It is my sad duty to inform you that on March 25, exactly 11 years after his father, 4 days after his 51st birthday, my colleague, partner, soulmate and best friend Bernd passed away, suddenly and unexpected. I’m in the process of recollecting myself and at the moment I can’t carry on taking care of this blog. I hope to get back to it some time in the future, as he always said working on this project made me noticeably happy.
We even wrote one blog post together which you might enjoy reading again: “Appliances, furniture and beyond – registering technological objects”
Hopefully see you soon
