What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Studying, reading, sailing, spending time with others.
Trying to figure out how to improve the world.
Spending too much time in front of electronic devices...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Solving Computer Problems. For most other things, there's someone I
know who does them better. It's called 'google'.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Short trousered more than half of the year. Ah wait, that's what
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
All one needs: Calvin&Hobbes
Seriously, I read a lot of technical literature and scientific
Movies: All those that try to carry a message and yes, even
hollywood get's that job done from time to time.
- South Park
- StarGate SG1
- StarTrek Voyager, although it was better, when I was
- Scrubs. Get's better every time.
- The West Wing (I can't believe I forgot that)
- House of Cards
I like political cabaret shows. Volker Pispers often nails it. And
I admire Serdar Somuncu's approach (if he fits under this
description at all).
Music: Every thing is better with a Hammond Organ! So late 60s and
early 70s like Procol Harum, The Nice, Colosseum, early Pink Floyd,
ELP, Ekseption, Rick Wakeman, Jethro Tull and all those gems I
haven't discovered yet.
Contemporary: Muse, Dream Theatre, Frank Turner.
Baroque organ music and it's reincarnations.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I emphasize: things. As in (biological) lifeless objects:
- Freedom of speech, and more importantly thought
- (still thinking about)
Other than that: My family, friends, partner
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- Exponential growth against finite resources, renewable energies
and energy harvesting
- The finance system, but haven't quite figured it out
- Aerodynamics of Sails and lately also dynamics of used boat
markets. Time to upgrade, I think.
- How things work in general, I'm always deeply impressed how much
thought went into most things around us, we take for granted every
- High performance bus systems and memory hierarchies of integrated
circuits (and their piplened VHDL implementation)
- The next big thing in Physics, where Mach, Dirac, Einstein,
Sciama and Dicke didn't finish. (Big Number Hypothesis, Physical
constants, Mach's Principle)
- Standart Model Physic, and where it might fail. At the moment:
- If I really like the music I listen to or if it's just by
- Recently: How many questions one should answer here and how
skipped topics might affect the "personality"
