My highest summit

For some time now I wanted to extend the scope of my blog beyond technology and IT. Both are big parts of my life, but they aren’t my only interest. One of my main non tech hobbies is hiking and climbing which is the first topic of this little excursion away from computers. And what […]

The thing about knowledge

Knowledge is a tricky thing for human beings. We gather it over the course of our lives and in multiple ways.

A lack of soul
