I am a Berlin-based international relations student interested in how information technologies shape political processes.
I just love generating, organising and sharing knowledge. I don’t like if perfectionism gets in the way of publication, so regard this entire website as work-in-progress.
Currently, I work as a System Hacker for the FSFE, making sure all of their servers operate smoothly. Feel free to check out my main contributions there. Maybe you find something useful for maintaining your own servers.
