about me

I was born 1974 in Karl-Marx-Stadt, that city is called today on his old name Chemnitz again. First contact with computers I made in the school system on a computer called KC-85. Computers played later a part of my life, I joined the german army and became a specialist for data processing in a unit that repaired electronics. After 6 years of service I left the army but not really, I served several times in the reserve forces. Actually I weared more uniform as I was a civilian. Later I became a computer scientist and work since then for a small company in my city. That company is one of the oldest companies in germany who earn her money with linux and so I became a fan of that operating system. I did several talks at events about free software, became part of the organization team of Chemnitzer Linux-Tage, organized the meetings of the local Linux user group. Later I joined RadioTux and was some years the responsible person for the program from events there. I visit many events in the year, so you can find me mostly on Chemnitzer Linux-Tage, Linuxwochen Vienna, LinuxTag, FrOSCon on Brandenburger Linux-Info-Tag and many more. About the events and many more I write a blog under Karl-Tux-Stadt

as I mentioned before I worked some years for the organization of Chemnitzer Linux-Tage. First as part of the Praxis Dr.Tux, where people got help with installations of Linux or free software or help with configurate there systems. Later I was responsible for that team. I worked also in the design team of that event and was later responsible for the whole design (visitors of that event knows a little bit what it means, there are round 500 different things who have to get styled from the program plans until neon signs). Since then I work more and more on graphic stuff, and so I do that also for fedora.

You need help with graphics, you can speak to me but please I dont like night shifts!

I also interested in free culture, so I work for OCAL and invented a kind of event in Germany where free movies are showed. I started with it on Chemnitzer Linux-Tage 2008 as event on the evening for the vistors of the event. But there was not only watching movies, I had some guests and the first event e.g. Stefan Kluge from VEB Film a group of people who did the first longer movie licensed with an Creative Commons license. And we did also something new, we tested a movie Alpha, we showed a working cut from "The Last Drug" the second movie from VEB Film. A year later I had Tim Baumann as guest and we did also an Alpha test with his movie "Valkaama". Later others copied that, so doing the KommKino in Nuremberg since 3 years interesting movie nights with Creative Commons films. I also did some talks like on LinuxTag on that topic, thats always a interesting thing. As in FLOSS involved people know free available != free, but how many knows there exists a OSI approved standard whats an Open Source Movie. I load up some of my slides about that topic to my space, its svg so its the source u can show then directly in browser and with an SVG-Editor edit, if you need it. Such a movie event can be a got thin for an end of a Launch Party or any other FLOSS event, so if you like to do that, just ask me I can help you with it.
