Blogging can be fun both alone and together. Those who blog alone can freely decide on topics and design without compromising. However, if you run a blog or an online magazine together, you can complement each other in terms of content and take turns writing so that the blog is filled with content more quickly. A blog can have a classic structure, so that the latest entry is always at the top and the older entries are collected below. Or in the currently particularly popular “magazine” style, in which all entries are visible next to each other and you can choose the one that appeals to you the most. An example of this format is the community blog Les Flâneurs community blog. You don’t even have to be familiar with the internet or even be a web designer to create your own website. Depending on the topic, there are, for example, countless design templates at 1 & 1 that you can personalize and fill with content for your own homepage. Once you’ve tried it, it’s easy to add another page. For example, if you are organizing a concert, a series of parties or a festival and want to inform the guests clearly about the line-up, prices and entrance fees.
The coincidence; this is the linchpin of games of chance, math exams and love for life. In everyday life we often have to do with coincidence, or rather: with probabilities. The “green wave” on the way home is just as important as the possibility of someone calling you whom you have long since forgotten.
Also and especially in gambling, probabilities and chance are often mentioned; not only in case studies in stochastics lessons. In blackjack and baccarat, the cards come as they were shuffled before. In roulette, the ball falls according to the speed of the wheel and itself. And the early mechanical slot machines were also random machines. But what about the modern software?
In electronic data processing, i.e. in computers and on the Internet, random generators are referred to as RNG. This is short for the English term Random Number Generator; in German: “Random number generator”. Through various equations, arithmetic processes and the inclusion of irrational numbers or non-periodic sequences of numbers from the decimal places of numbers such as π (Pi) and so on, thousands, if not millions, of random numbers are created on corresponding computing chips per second. This type of digital chance, which is presented here in an amateur way, but in reality is sophisticated, runs as a background process, as digital fate, so to speak.
