It was in 1984 when my journey has begun. My life happens on a blue-green globe in the midst of deep black infinity. “Life” can be a fascinating feeling. The pure feeling of breathing for example – to feel air pouring into your lungs – can be a wonderful moment. I am happy about the fact that there is so much to see and so much to learn out there. Particularly I like the thought that we are so many. We call us “human beings”. And no one equals the other one.
In the society of human beings I am a computer engineer. I work in the fields of microelectronics and safety-critical real-time systems. Electronics and digital data processing as well as the flow of information which is based upon them form some kind of nervous system for the human-machine-organism. Being concerned with routing bits and bytes to the right place at the right time for processing it meaningfully(!) is a task I am very motivated to work on.
However, a much bigger part of my heart is with the wealth of this planet Earth, as we call it. Earth is so incredibly fascinating that I am sad about how our species treats it. And about the way we sometimes treat each other, especially that our(!) economic and social systems don’t function for everybody, yet.
That is why I am intent to change that situation into something better. To join the debates. To think. To suggest solutions.
One of my most important projects is the Global Society Blog. Everybody is invited to join us.
Apart of that I enjoy to create movies and photos, sometimes graphics and drawings. Choirs and orchestras supply me with goosebumbs moments. Of course I prefer to sing and play with them. Sometimes I write poems, too. I like simplicity, elegance and esthetics as long as they aren’t affected. Because openness is more important than masks worn much too often in our society predicting to be something else.
However, some silhouettes of my journey can be found on this virtual place of sharing. Hopefully, you’ll find something that pleases, inspires or helps you.
By the way, I hope to translate some of my articles into the English language. If this the case, this part is marked with a Union Jack.
