Living currently in agglomeration of Vienna, where I study computer sciences and work at university as a researcher.
I like it to cross borders of genres, topics and interests. Sometimes I go to Classical, sometimes to drum\n\base concerts. Life is too complex for concentrating at a single thing. I am quite interested in meeting new people, to have some fun with them or a good discussion.
I enjoy nature, rock climbing, hiking or just all the
small details popping up there. In my profession I spent many hours in closed rooms staring at a computer screen. In my free time I try to avoid closed rooms as much as possible discovering new plants, animals or places.
I love travelling. A trip or a journey in my case is not hopping from one country, from one city, to the next, I like it more to spend more time at one place, where I can focus on local culture, language and people. Currently I want to spend more time in Middle and Eastern Europe.
Trying to understand the consequences of the Enlightment and our consumption/technology driven society better.

Teach, Learn, Share
I don't like the word teaching. I prefer in this meaning, how I understand it, sharing some ideas, not teaching.
I am learning Polish and various programming languages.
SHAREWell, currently I am quite fascinated by ants, bees and other state building insects or complex organisms. Their collective intelligence, their strategies and ways of organisation. :) But dont worry I wont bring some with me ;) Another topic, worthwile to point out, is propably the good and the evil in each human being. (-> Stanford Prisoners Experiment etc.)
Every week I got a now topic where I get interested in. The ants are just an example what was my favourite interest for some days. In these days I focus myself on discussions, documentaries, essays etc. connected with the "weekly topic" until I get appealed from another idea.
