For information on Chironomidae please visit the community web page on
This web site originated as a private project for my PhD in 2010 to publicly
- share my microscopic images
- share my developed image management tool Chironomidae Identification Program CHIP
I do not work any more with Chironomidae but this web site is intended to stay and contribute my work. May be it is of some help ;-)
“The important thing is not to stop questioning.” Albert Einstein
Have you ever thought what it means to be serious? Is it the stopping of laughter? To have a smile on your face, would that indicate that you are not serious? To want to look at a tree and see the beauty of a tree, would that be lack of seriousness? To want to know why people look that way, what they wear, why they talk that way, would that be lack of seriousness? Or would seriousness be always having a long face, always saying: "Am I doing the right thing, am I conforming to a pattern"?
(Jiddu Krishnamurti: On Education,p. 67)
