The name’s Felix.

On this site, I share, amongst other things, my works and thoughts.

May I interest you in some of my writing:

Below are some of my projects and what lessons to glean from them. I hope you find something worthwhile here.

A bit about me

In my day job, I blow stuff up. In my private life, I try to mend things. I enjoy organizing and leading people just as much as listening and learning from anyone. I've officially been named a hero, which is neat.

Born sometime during the ‘90s in the bountiful farmlands of northern Germany, now residing in warmer climates.

My belief is that it is everyone‘s duty to better the world. If you've confined yourself to your paralysis, your inability to affect change, I feel pity for you.

I like the idea of personal homepages, diversity of opinion and approaches, instead of feeding the Silicon Valley content silos with ephemeralities.

Here are some moving pictures I think are decent:

Code quicklinks:

I had a serious infatuation with Argentine Tango that lasted a good year and a half.
Here are some remnants:

I enjoyed taking responsiblity when working with my peers at my old student union. At the “Fachschaft W” — which is also a legally registered club of about 90 members with discrete finances — I ran:

  • Finances as CFO, as such also part of the board (ret. June 2018)
  • Tech infrastructure, including Cloud Document Sharing, Knowledge Management, Homepage, Business Application Suite
  • Office affairs


People, sites and organizations that I think are interesting:

  • Idle Words - Maciej has a degree in English Writing and it shows. His early travel reports are a delight; his more recent posts delve deeply into crucial issues such as progressive election campaigns and the real powers that govern technology.
  • Aaron Parecki - Someone who lives for and on the IndieWeb. It is nice to see the possibilities of federated technologies in real-world use.
