Unpublished

In each society I am or was active. During the tape recording times, I wrote essays about how sounds and voices may be alienated and how you go about a radio play project. When I was more in electronic music, I wrote articles for the journal of the AME e.V. For the union web team I wrote — not counting the courses — articles about this or that HTML topic. I created several presentations for the astronomical society (AGO) suited for laymen and amateurs and I still write an essay for our journal now and then. Of course, these contributions are not exactly un-published but they are, and were, available to a selected audience exclusively.


Books

The title looks better in plural, I have only written one book yet, however, but I made it ready for the prepress. It was an interesting experience to dip into typography and layout. The book is written in German.

Die CCD Astro-Kamera für den Amateur (the astro ccd camera for the amateur);
Hans-Ruedi Wernli, 1995;
238 pages, b/w with graphics and pictures,
ISBN 3-7643-5218-3,
published by Birkhäuser.
