About Me

LAST UPDATE: OCT 2015

I guess I'm a social freak :) I like connecting people and information. I participate in many projects, but rarely finish them. I always like to explore, usually I am a rather hyperactive person, but sometimes I also like to dive down in melancholy. I believe it's important to question everything, and still I find myself believing in something bigger than we can even name. I vote for greens, I like to think about myself as of a business guy and I have a heart of an anarchist and dislike the state in most of its forms.

PHILOSOPHY

Enjoy all the good you can. Learn from all the bad. Keep the promise. Don't promise too much :]

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

mostly by simply hosting, but I also wrote some articles about HC/CS/BW and I try to explain my friends, why it's so great :) and many of them already joined too. my latest article on CS (September 2012): http://www.babelguide.com/case-studies/couchsurfing-101-101-tips-to-enjoy-the-hospitality-networks (in English)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Ages ago I've been a faculty volunteer taking care of exchange students from school of slavonic and east european studies, London. Later I've learnt about Hospitality club (hospitalityclub.org), and got quite into it - same id: adamm - http://member.hospitalityclub.org/adamm
I like the idea of connecting people around the world, skipping the common tourist traps, getting to know the real life elsewhere a bit.

Interests

internet (social media, web 2.0, webdesign, net art), travelling, nature (dancing leaves in the sunset being the best evidence of God's existence imho), parties with good music (and its spreading, sharing), design & architecture, history and politics, table football, good food & drinks and interesting ppl, chatting with friends about life, universe and everything... coffee!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've visited Taizé and I've seen it truly works. As close to God's kingdom, as possible in the real world.

Teach, Learn, Share

How and where to find stuff. Little bit on nationalism, history (central europe), media studies, social media for both individuals and corporations. Strange stories. Connecting people.
