What is this blog about ?

Hey, this is Jan. Glad to meet you. ‘sup? If you have questions feel free to contact me through the contact form.

I have decided to start this blog for two reasons:  that is, to explore and getting involved with what we call “the internet”.

The second reason: to organize my thoughts in a coherent manner which I can then refer back to as and when the need to do so arises.

Since I have created this web-page there is still no clear goal or direction for this blog – so far nothing changed since 2001.

Activities

TESRenewal (Skywind), this is a non-commercial, fan made modification for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim that seeks to merge the amazing world of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind with the enhanced graphics and capabilities of Skyrim’s engine. TESRENEWAL is currently NOT available. A release date and beta is not available yet. You are interested in volunteering?

Förderverein für zeitgenössische Literatur – NordBuch e.V., a association for literature in Schleswig-Holstein.

Other activities such as social-service work with youth to offer service, support and engage in fun- and political activities.

As for me? I would say coding (or breaking stuff apart), game design, politics, technology, pop culture.

A list of my Interests

My knowledge of the subjects listed ranges from a little to quite a lot, and tends to reflect the topics which are the flavor of a particular moment.

I’ve made a list, partly for fun, partly to help me understand, and, perhaps, focus in on some subjects a little better as time passes.

FAQ

Do yous till play World of Warcraft? No. I’ve somehow lost the interest. There is no longer the feeling to somehow connect… “You’re Getting Old!”

Games you ask? I’m huge fan of StarCraft, in particular all Blizzard Games. Your occasional shooter such as Quake.

Do still have the videos of boss-kill OOZY or raid ‘Git Gud Whatever’? Certainly. I’ve uploaded most of them to YouTube.

I can’t find you on my preferred social media site?! I’ve deleted, deactivated or never created one in the first place.

What good comes form deleting your Facebook profile? A social media company that only shows you what you like, based on your personal interested or connected interest with people with the same interest and view point, is creating a society unable to discuss issues. How can you solve a conflict if you feel uneasy and hide content or topics you might not like? Social media is generating a obsession of oppression.

Your website sucks. Like there is nothing new and never anything new! Thank you for your engagement!
