I got a finger nail infection on my left index finger, the condition is called _Paronychia_; it appeared suddenly and got swollen pretty fast and the infection became visible; so I went to the doctor and they decided to "drain" it. A bit painful, but it was good to have it done. Now my finger is wrapped in a lot of sterile gaze at least until next week. It's a bit annoying for typing. I was afraid of having more pain; but it has been manageable until now. Feeling fortunate about the German medical system. Apart from the pain killer, ibuprofen, I didn't have to pay a single Euro cent.

How many crypto wallets do you currently manage?

Are people really supposed to have a separate "Wallet" app for every crypto currency they have an interest in? Trying out some tokens to understand the (fin)tech and you end up easily with a handful of non-compatible applications on the Web and on your phone. And for each of these you really need to be careful for not losing access to or them becoming obsolete or getting hacked / stolen. Can't imagine what kind of nightmare it must be for any business owner even considering accepting crypto tokens. Sure, there are "solutions" out there that have a promise to solve this, but the problem with decentralization is that literally anyone can make this whole landscape even more complex at any given time. It's not like if you wanted to drive to somewere you can only drive with a certain brand of car on a particular road, right? And which will end up ruling them all?

Had a great Easter day with my family; we didn't leave the house - but enjoyed the chocolates and had a lot of fun with the new toys the Easter Bunny brought in exchange for my son's pacifiers. He was really brave about giving the pacifiers to the Easter Bunny so the new babies could also have theirs. So proud of him.

First day of vacation - spent the whole day in the Hofgarten park with my son. He ran and played in the sandbox - briefly chatted - with mask on - with other parents on anything but Covid - it was a great day outside, with good fun and the weather was warm and pleasant. Life was good today and I'm going to bed relaxed. Tomorrow again?

Imported Jolocom's Whitepaper about self-sovereign identity (SSI) to IPFS - if someone's interested. https://bafybeiewr3irin7fpi725jag4djwqed7afimgdtvtre3iwtdnyhltjhfdu.ipfs.dweb.link/

To 5G or not to 5G for a home Internet connection in the city of Düsseldorf, Germany - that is the question.

The gridbyexample.com site seems down - planned maintenance I hope? @rachelandrew

A physical master key, like DiceKey, allows the people I trust and love to not be totally locked out of everything I did and have in my digital presence if something really bad would have happened to me
