Greetings from Brussels airport, minutes before boarding for Lisbon.


2 geeks 1 citytrip

The misses and I are going on a citytrip to Lisbon during the coming weekend. A nice, relaxing, unplugged weekend (well … maybe the occasional twitter and a photo or 2 on flickr … but that’s it !). If anybody still has some last minute tips on what to see, where to eat, etc. please do comment on this post.

Connect your music

simplify media

Simplify Media is an awesome discovery of mine. It’s a service that’s available for mac, pc, linux, iphone and ipod touch and allows you to share your music library with your friends and discover theirs. In iTunes, it works the same way as if you would share libraries on a local network, only with Simplify Media the computers can be on the other side of the world, because you’re sharing it over the internet.

The service supports iTunes, Winamp AND linux players, AAC ,WMA ,MP3 , etc. I particulary like the iPhone interface, it’s a native app that allows you to browse your music (handy if all your music doesn’t fit on your iPhone) and that of your friends from anywhere where there’s wifi. The iPhone version also gives you information on the artist, the lyrics and there’s a convenient link to the iTunes music store to buy that newly discovered song and download it straight to your phone.

If you’re as fond of music as I am … you’ll love it.

Doppler is a really cool and slick-looking web 2.0 site that enables you to share your upcoming trips with friends, share your experiences, meet up with fellow travellers, etc.

Back to business …

It’s official, spring break is over … that’s the thought that went through my mind this morning when my alarm clock went off at 6 AM.

I need a Nalu *yawn*.

Communie … het blijft een raar fenomeen voor een “ketter” als mij.
