We are living in exponential times. Science works much faster than ever. New technology that helps us managing our life in a more comfortable and quicker way gets developed every day. The world population cooperates over the internet. People are confronted with more and more information every day. Social bookmaring services and twitter gives us 1000 interesting links to watch every day. This might either mean information overload or adaption of the brain. Will we cope this stream of information and be hyperintelligent or will we just waste our time watching useless information making us inproductive?
Just in case you didn’t see this video before, take the 5 minutes of time and watch it. Its really impressive.

About one or two month ago I decided that I would try to blog and twitter in english, in order to let my text be undestood by everyone. But how does it feel after all?
First thing I recognized is a decrease in comments and answers to me, as most of my readers / followers are german. So, if you’re deciding to switch to english, you should explicitely tell everyone that they still can answer / comment / reply to you in german. YOU MAY COMMENT IN GERMAN EVERYONE! :-D Otherwise some who are not so sure of their language skills might just decide its too hard to translate their thoughts to english. And nobody wants that.
Second thing I realized that you need to change some META-Tags, as you’ll most likely will have defined your site / (micro)blog to be a german one.
Third thing is that my english skills didn’t improve too much during this time, but I think they’re pretty good anyways. Well – you at least practice a bit.
Forth thing … you can see a world-map on the right with approximate locations of my readers. Since I changed to english, there are readers all over the world, but I definitely also lost some readers here in germany.
Fifth thing is one that bugs me … I still have the .de-Domain thats for german sites. The .com site isn’t free anymore, so this some kind of ****s.
After all, it feels good. I’ve got a free and open mind and I think I don’t write about too much local stuff, so why not train my english a bit? I don’t believe the money-making-blog-hype anyways. Did you also think about writing in english in your blog instead of your local language? Or do you use a multilanguage system? Please comment (you can also comment in german)! ;-)
