Es kommt ja nicht so oft vor, dass man Besuch aus Deutschland (bzw Japan) bekommt. Der @Fripi war heute in #Taipei und wir haben zusammen mit seiner Taiwanischen Freundin Doris veganen Lunch gehabt. Und das Jahre nachdem wir uns das letzte Mal auf der @republica gesehen haben.
Moin #Mastodon und euch einen gesunden Start in diesen Mittwoch.

'The Invention of Bubble Tea'
"n 1987, a tea shop in #Taiwan named Chun Shui Tang began selling pearl milk tea, or bubble tea, as it’s often called.
It would revolutionise the tea-drinking world.
Ben Henderson speaks to Liu Han-Chieh, the shop owner, and Lin Xiuhu, who first added the drink’s signature tapioca balls."
Feeling thankful—and seen! Viewers share their personal responses after a screening of ‘Melodia’ 梅樂蒂.
The Experimental, Dance & Music Film Festival, based in Toronto and Los Angeles, seeks films that stretch the boundaries of approach and form in cinematic storytelling. ‘Melodia’ has been awarded top honours for Best Short Film!
Congratulations to our cast and crew in Taiwan, and many thanks to our friends in North America for their kind encouragement!

In Deutschland unvorstellbar: Fahrraeder auf dem Buergersteig und es gibt keinen Stress. Also die fahren da auch noch tatsaechlich rum 😱
The annual survey by #NationalChengchiUniversity in #Taipei found that only 34% of those polled agreed that the US is a trustworthy country, holding steady from last year when the figure fell to 34% from 43.4% in 2021.
A stone plaque in Nanjing West Road in Taipei marks the site of the incident on 27 February 1947 that set off the events of 228 Massacre. An uprising by the Taiwanese people against Chinese Nationalist rule was brutally suppressed. The death toll is estimated at 18,000 to 28,000
Tery Gou (郭台銘) has shop fronts set up in various locations around Taiwan to collect signatures to nominate for the presidential election. The photos in this post were taken in Taipei. Gou claims to have already collected the 290,000 signatures required but the signature drive continues
Einfach mal in den letzten gut 10 Jahren den Hauptstrassen rechts und links Fahrspuren wegnehmen, Buergersteige breiter machen, Radwege anlegen & an jedem 2. Block eine Leihrad-Station platzieren.

Klingt doch gar nicht so kompliziert, oder?
This personality test from Taiwan Design Expo '23 is so cute and I love the UI:
And the Australian Defense Forces are increasing their personnel size by 30 percent by 2040.
In the meantime, the small Ukrainian community in #Taiwan is eagerly building ties of solidarity.
Two days a week, in front of the Russian diplomatic office in #Taipei, you’ll find a man named Alex Khomenko waving a Ukrainian flag, raising money for humanitarian relief.
A typhoon had just passed by recently – which Alex embraces simply as “good flag-waving weather.”
This week, I had a second go at collecting every single one of the Taipei MRT station stamps in one day.
What are station stamps? Many places in Taiwan (museums, railway stations, temples, even some restaurants), have unique rubber stamps that visitors can ink up and collect in a notebook. If you hunt around every MRT station in Taipei, you’ll find one. They’re usually kept close to the ticket barriers nearest the staffed help desk, and most are located outside the ticket barriers in the unpaid area of the station.
When the new TPass (a travel pass which gives you access to all MRT stations, train stations, buses and YouBikes across Taipei, New Taipei, Keelung and Taoyuan for NT$1200/month) was released, I decided to try and visit every single MRT station in one day. I failed. But that first attempt made me even more sure that it was possible, and determined to give it a second shot.
So that’s how I spent my day off this week. It took me almost exactly 17 hours to collect every single stamp, and in the process of doing so, I travelled over 180km. It is not something I am ever planning on doing again. (But I’ve heard there will be a new stop on the red line in the not too distant future…)

This is the cumulative efforts of yesterday’s attempt to collect as many MRT station stamps as possible. I got 106 unique stamps out of a total of 122. I was unable to collect the final 3 on the yellow line, and 13 on the orange line. I also skipped the light rail stations.
For anyone who is so inclined, I think it is possible to collect all in one day provided that you make sure you’re at the starting terminal station of wherever you’re beginning at opening time and take provisions with you.

Nice! #Taiwan 🇹🇼 extends its trial visa-free entry to Filipinos 🇵🇭 until 31 July 2024. This was the news I was waiting so that there's a huge chance that I can attend #WikidataCon happening in October in #Taipei.
At the 38th meetup of this #Taipei-based Raspberry Pi meetup group, the topics are IoT, version control, and augmented reality.
Taiten from Canonical will speak about fast version iteration and application deployment through Snap packages on Raspberry Pi. And Tony Lin from MEGA1 will speak about the possibility of using #RaspberryPi for augmented reality applications.
Date, time, etc:
Since #SUCHO it's impossible to not be impressed by the #Taipei #airport. Every gate in the transfer zone at least is deeply themed with some environmental or cultural heritage theme. To the point of impracticality even: traditional canoes or reimagined bird nests instead of chairs and chargers. But given the stakes it's hard to be cranky, even sitting on a pseudo rock. #CulturalHeritage
Today I had planned to catch the sunrise, but I ended up seeing something far rarer: a Brocken spectre. This divine phenomenon only occurs in quite specific atmospheric conditions. The viewer has to be in a position where they are higher than the clouds with strong sunlight shining down behind them. I had been hoping to see one for years.
At the 37th meetup of this Taipei-based #RaspberryPi meetup group, they will share a case study using Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4. They'll also discuss Node-RED and the Raspberry Pi Global Shutter Camera.
