Berlin: A future without rubbish
Everybody else calls it “rubbish”; Simone of the Material Mafia calls it “resources”. Rescued from the dumpster, objects declared as useless are given a new meaning: grain sacks become seat cushions, old plywood a lodge in the Berlin Prinzessinnengarten. There, Simone dreams of the future, a future without rubbish.

Berlin. Arm aber sexy. Berlin is the next city I’m planning on moving to, just like everybody else here in Germany. Though the more alternative types are now moving to Leipzig, Berlin is still a very hot destination for people from Germany and beyond. Though the massive influx of rich Swabians and the ensuing gentrification has driven rent prices up, Berlin is still immensely attractive. While moving to Berlin is now mainstream and unoriginal here in Germany, Berlin, to me, hasn’t lost its magic. EDIT: I moved to Berlin on October 1, 2015.

If the Internet were shut down, I’d still be online! The Berlin freecasters make it possible. Everywhere in Berlin they set up routers. Now 600 of them. The freecaster network can be used by anyone, and anyone can expand it if he likes, and so again make the Internet what it originally wanted to be: not a network of only a few big providers but of many.
