    The time has come and our loyal reader know already our traditional Advents Calendar. For the people who don't know, every year we had in December each day, until the 24th (Christmas Eve in Germany), a post with specials, tips, tricks, plugins, tutorials and so on.

    Since it is quite a lot work to accomplish 24 high quality posts, we asked some of the finest WordPress Experts in Germany if they would like to contribute some ideas and great posts to it every day.

Coin » Use One Coin for All of Your Cards - 0 views

  •  
    Sorry if this double-posts, I had to switch windows.

    So this is less "internet" and more "tech innovation", but it was so cool I just had to share it.

    This company has developed a piece of hardware (shaped exactly like a credit card), that can actually be swiped in credit card machines, that holds all of your personal credit, debit, and gift card information. You switch between cards using a button on the device, you add them to the card via a phone app and an attached card swiper, and as it's linked to your phone, it'll alert you if you get too far away from the card (in the case of leaving it on a table and walking away, or forgetting your wallet on the way out of the house, for example).

Possible U.N. telecommunications treaty? - 0 views

  •  
    (A little outdated, 2012) This is an interesting article about possible international telecommunication regulations; and how countries have been preparing for The World Conference on International Telecommunications for months "behind closed doors". Although the idea seems easy enough, I do not believe that all the involved nations could reach a single standard when it comes to rights of speech and censorship. Even more so, if a treaty was made how would this effect the laws and citizens of the individual countries who already have laws in place?

"7 Ways To Keep Audience Attention During Your Presentation" - 0 views

  •  
    Just a few tips to consider if/when you feel your audience is losing interest. A lot of these tips are common sense and straight forward. However, although they are simple, at the same time they can be easily overlooked and under utilized.

    Lastly, most of these would not work with our class presentations. They are geared more towards larger presentations that take up more time.
