It is that time of the year again.

Everywhere IT Departments get swamped by gifts from Suppliers, we burn the last of the years budget and the switches light up like a Christmas Tree.

Since we don't want you to spend your time lonely in your NerdBasement I hereby invite you to the Nerdmare Before Christmas Party!

Traditionally it will take place at the famous at
the 18th of December, starting at around 7:00 pm.

Feel free to bring your Nerdfriends that are Offline right now, taking
care for their VAX and your friend trapped in their Basement and these that are still missing in the pile of legacy code your PFY produced.

Please register yourself with a Nick or your Realname at:

Kind regards,
Munichs best looking Evangelist

As a pure atheist, I really think that I am not conscious that I am dead. So why should I fear death? Sure, my family would be sad that I am dead, but hey, we were able to cope with this for milleniums.
Now, meanwhile, I try to make good use of my life, which is more interesting than trying to think what's after or even spend my life trying to evade my death... Seriously, having a good life is not correlated in any way with the fact I eventually die or not.
These are separate things that thanshumanists seems to get wrong imho, unless they believe in something after death, which is suprisingly like a faith or a religion.

Totally into Dawn of War right now. For the Imperator!

Since I don't share much private stuff any more lately a short update, first month of BQ was pretty awesome - weird too in a way because we have a clear goal (STEM education!) but approx a Gazillion ways to reach it.

So I dived head first into education and STEM (called MINT in Germany) and read and read and read. Connecting to people (@BQAcademyDE on Twitter) and talking to awesome people like Stefan from Google about collaboration between +Bitbloq Bq & +Roberta Roboter and much much more.

We have +BQ as Gold Sponsor at the +Make Munich in January.

Family-wise (for those who have missed it) in April 2016 we will be one of around 10.000 families in Germany with 7 kids (Microzensus 2005) and the kids and family are pretty happy about it.

So, that's it for now

I am happen to be a dad of five lovely children, married to a wonderful wife (since 2004) and im working as a 1st/2nd Level TechSupporter for a company named BörseGo in Munich.

What makes me so nerdy is my addiction to knowledge/makers, spreading wisdom, my wish to make the world better than i've entered it and my strong believe that it is possible to do this with teaching and technology.

I love Zombies, Gaming, NERF Guns, MineCraft, LEGO, 3D Printing, Hackerspaces and there is almost no country in the world where i don't know at least ONE person who i could ask about their local TechCommunity.

I was the official Speaker of german GTUGs, the GoogleTechnologyUserGroups (now know as GDGs, Google Developer Groups)

I am also Founder of the GTUG Munich

If you want to get your TechEvent organized or evangelize your API, Gadget or Product, just ask me: i can be hired for exactly this. Plus i can be payed in LEGOs. No joke!

Ich bin jetzt seit über drei Jahren Kunde von Shirtfriends und inzwischen weiß ich: Wenn ich in T-Shirts für meine Events brauche, dann bestelle ich die hier. Kleine Anekdote: es ist Mittwoch (5ter Juni), 14 Uhr und am nächsten Tag ist Feiertag. Ich schreibe Shirtfriends eine Email: Ich brauche 150 Shirts, das und das Logo, Lieferzeitpunkt 7ter Juli (Freitag, nächsten Monats) und eine Stunde später klingelt das Telefon. Shirtfriends Geschäftsführer Robert Reuter sagt mir: also in Siebdruck können wir's nicht mehr machen bis Freitag, aber in Digitaldruck ist das kein Problem. Er hat sich zwar im Datum geirrt, hätte den Job aber hinbekommen. Wow.

Schlicht der beste Radladen der Welt. Man muss sich nur damit abfinden dass der Erfolg bisweilen dazu führt das es auch mal länger dauert. Also für die Inspektion mal etwas mehr Zeit nehmen, aber bei fiesen Pannen erwähnen das man das Rad dringend braucht, dann kümmert sich Mark auch entsprechend darum. Ansonsten: Top Qualität, Top Preis-Leistung, Top Alles
