CEBIT 2011 in Hannover

CEBIT 2011
This evening I´ve visited the world largest computer exhibition in Hannover.

Cause of absence on business I couldn´t see a lot of new products, but I arrived early enough to attend the legendary “Stand-Party” at the Tobit software booth in hall 6.

It was enjoyable as every time and the free German beer tastes good as ever.
I enjoyed listen to the music, watch the dancers and talk to interesting people.

So, hopefully I will see everybody @Cebit 2012 back at this awesome location.
Thanks to Tobit software again for this grateful event. See you next year

Expenses spreadsheet - Financial independence

expenses spreadsheet
I provide my Excel expenses spreadsheet which I use to track living costs. It is essential to track your costs of living to archive financial independence (FI). I use it since more than one year and have improved it several times. Of course you should adjust it to your own needs. Have fun tracking your financial expenses and reviewing your spending attitudes.

Goal: "Trade for a living" - ongoing!

Since about 2 years I work on my financial independence. I also worked for an Investment Bank.

About half a year ago I quit my job to start trade for a living, inspired by the writings from Dr. Alexander Elder and many other great investors.

It worked very fine, but in my case unfortunately only for about half a year.
The good news is: Because of good money management skills I didn´t blow up my trading account and learned a lot from my past mistakes.
So I raise more money, relocate to somewhere cheaper and will just start over again.

Anyway, trading is the most interesting and rewarding work I´ve ever done in my whole life. I feel addicted to Mr. Market and the world, never want to stop doing this for the rest of my greatful life.

Regarding Robert Kiyosaki´s teaching I´ve also moved from the "E" quadrant to "S" (temporary).
Beside working in the "I" quadrant to acquire more wealth for the long term.

I know it works and for financial independence failure is not an option.

Btw: Happy birthday mate... you are awesome !

Tutankhamun - his tomb and his treasures exhibition in Munich

This evening I´ve visited the exhibition and attend to the lecture "Howard Carter´s excavation records of the tomb of Tutankhamun", hold by Prof. Dr. Jaromir Malek.

Jaromir Malek is egyptologist at the Griffith Institute in Oxford, England. This archive is the worldwide leading one, because they have the original personal notes from Howard Carter, the discoverer of the more than 3000 years old thomb.
The remarkable point is, the institute provide full access to all this informations for free and to everybody. Just visit the website and read through his digitized notes or view the pictures taken from the early 1920th until now.

Providing historical information unrestricted to the public seems to be the best way to preserve this unique informations forever.

Later this year the exhibition will also move on to Hamburg in Germany.

See some pictures in my G A L L E R Y.

Visit Website Tut-Ausstellung and the Griffith Institutes in Oxford, where Carter´s diarys and pictures are published

NASA lecture about "The Future of Space Exploration" in Munich

2009 has been designated the International Year of Astronomy and also marks the 40th anniversary of the first manned moon landing. To honor these anniversaries, the U.S. Consulate General Munich, the Public Observatory Munich (Volkssternwarte) and the Bavarian American Center present this lecture by Zainab Nagin Cox.

A Cornell University graduate and former U.S. Air Force officer, Ms. Cox is currently Assistant Flight System Engineering Manager at NASA´s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. In this capacity, she works on the next NASA rover to Mars, scheduled to be launched in 2011.

Prior to joining the Mars Exploration Rover Mission team, Ms. Cox worked on NASA´s Galileo and Kepler missions.
Her lecture will address American involvement in research and innovation, international cooperation and the future of space exploration.

Thank you for this exciting evening and the interesting lecture here in Munich. It was an outstanding event to listen to someone involved so deep in such an interesting topic as you are.

Today, when I post this article the Space Shuttle "Atlantis" will lift off for the last service mission to the space telescope "Hubble". Have a good flight and a successfull mission.
