  • Evaluation of the Ambassador Group 2024

    Screenshot 2024-04-16 11.00.58
    The Ambassador Images group has now been in existence for three years. The original idea was " ... to show images by our members that are particularly worth seeing and that represent the spectrum of their work in the greatest possible diversity. It is not a 'best-of' group. " It is now time to evaluate whether the group has achieved this goal or whether adjustments may be necessary. The current inventory shows that of the total of 1264 contributions, 533 (42%) come from 81 group member…

    Besser schreiben mit KI (?)
    Seit Wochen ist in den Medien ein ziemlicher Hype um künstliche Intelligenz (KI) im Gange. Die größte Aufmerksamkeit bekommt dabei ChatGPT , eine neuartige Anwendung mit erstaunlichen Fähigkeiten und beeindruckender Eloquenz. Die Formulierungskunst von ChatGPT ist so gut, dass beispielsweise das Hamburger Landesparlament nicht gemerkt haben soll, dass ein Bürgerschaftsabgeordneter seine Rede vollständig damit erstellt hatte [ 1 ] . Im kolumbianischen Cartagena soll sogar ein Richte…

  • What is a good photo?

    What is a good photo?
    © Bernhard Westrup ( Bergfex ) (collage with only own pictures) Three months ago, the administration of the ambassador pictures fell to me. This group is one of the flagships of ipernity, because the pictures in this group are shown to curious visitors from the web when they discover our website and click onto the button: Explore ➽Noteworthy . At this occasion, the co-admin raingirl , who also is a jury member, asked the important question: " What is a good photo? What mak…

  • Time for a breath of fresh air

    Dear club members, dear friends, In 2017, when I was asked by William Sutherland and Lutz Petersen to help save ipernity from shipwreck, I had just turned 65. I felt too young and energetic for a tranquil retirement. So I went for it, knowing well that it would be a challenging venture full of uncertainties because no one on the founding team was a qualified IT professional. But volunteering for a worthwhile non-profit project appealed to me, and as a passionate mountaineer I was used to hand…

  • The power of Misused Words

    The power of misused words
    Yesterday there was a deflagration of ether vapour at the chemical institute in Innsbruck (Austria). Such a deflagration is a fast combustion at the boundary surface between the heavy ether vapour and the lighter air above it after ignition. If the ether vapour had been swirled with the air beforehand, there would have been a huge explosion after ignition. But not a detonation . This is because in a detonation, the initial ignition creates a pressure wave that spreads through the expl…

  • 2020-12-24 Merry Christmas!

    Version française : Veuillez faire défiler vers le bas ⬇️ Deutsche Version: Bitte nach unten scrollen ⬇️ [EN] Dear members and friends of ipernity, Unfortunately, our IT specialists were not able to repair the disruption of the upload function before Christmas.

  • Candidacy

    I would like to apply for the role of CTO, while I am more of an engineer with computer skills than an IT expert. Since my computer science lessons at school over 40 years ago, before Windows, my knowledge today is based on what I have taught myself. Much has grown out of working with Wim Janssen on votingmachines.panoramiogames.com . So I learned html, php, javascript and SQL, which is used there. This allowed me to help with the last small upgrades, but I found that ipernity is much mor…
