“Ingo Niermann doesn’t look like a guy offering tear-the-door-down business ideas for the Internet age.

But the project takes on somewhat bigger dimensions.”
Harry Nutt, Frankfurter Rundschau

“Imagine if Borges, rather than writing ‘The Babylon Lottery’, had persuaded Argentinia’s National Gamling Commission to set up an über-lottery and then simply documented the results, and you get an idea of what is going on with Solution 9.”
