The Superlative of Miniature: Interview with Stephan Hertz, Miniatur Wunderland Hamburg
Role: author. "Our search for inspirational stories of innovation brings us back to our home harbor, the city of Hamburg, where a group of visionary minds dreamed up an entirely new world. But unlike many fantasy worlds created by minds of writers and artists, this vast miniature universe lacks any kind of escapism. It is a superlative mini-version of the human realm where both ordinary and extraordinary co-exist side by side and all manifestations of human activity receive an equal tribute..."

IP Solutions for the future: Interview with Maxine J. Horn, the founder of Creative Barcode
Role: author. "Imagine how different our world would be if the ancient scholars worked and created under the circumstances of the digital age. This would be a world, where Pythagoras blogs on a regular basis, Aristotle hopes for more clicks for his explanatory metaphysics videos on Youchimney.com, and Diogenes of Sinope seeks to organise flash mobs via posts on Buzz-from-thebarrel.com. Their work and ideas are re-posted and re-tweeted, their names and their authorship become lost and forgotten in the jungle of the digital space. Would the accessibility and the fast-paced character of the knowledge created and shared by these scholars change our perception of their value? Would the numerous re-posts without attribution lead to devaluation of the original and the oblivion of their names? And finally: could the negligence towards the authorship fundamentally change our cultural history? In search for answers the Ciopora Chronicle talked to Ms. Maxine J. Horn – the expert in questions of Intellectual Property Protection, the founder of British Design Innovation and Innovation Bank, and the visionary behind Creative Barcode – the main subject of our talk."
