Chce-li někdo tvořit zákony, měl by je především znát. Místopředseda sněmovny a KDU-ČSL Jan Bartošek svůj článek začíná kritikou stížnosti Pirátů a Strany zelených na volební klauzuli při volbách do Evropského parlamentu. Konkrétně se mu nelíbí, že si stěžujeme až po volbách a ne před nimi. K tomu lze jen dodat, že jednak volební klauzuli kritizujeme dlouhodobě (a u soudu jsme si na ni stěžovali již po loňských volbách do Poslanecké sněmovny), a za druhé jsme stížnost k soudu mohli dle zákona podat až po volbách, neboť až po nich jsme byli kráceni na svých právech. 
V nepřesnostech ale Bartošek pokračuje i ve zbytku článku.

[Sken článku] Místopředseda Sněmovny a KDU-ČSL Jan Bartošek se v článku Šalamoun na tenkém ledě, zveřejněném v deníku Právo 7. července 2014 dopouští řady útoků na Českou pirátskou stranu. Jím uváděné argumenty bohužel svědčí o jeho základní neznalosti problematiky volebního práva, práce Nejvyššího správního soudu i Ústavního soudu a také o neochotě si alespoň přečíst veřejně dostupné informace o programu Pirátů. To jej dle našeho názoru zcela di...

А, а я какраз с первой начинал. При том случайно обнаружил ее на каком-то сборнике игр (который покупал ради какой-то другой игры). Какраз был год 97 или 98. Какой же был фурор, когда я ее друзьям показал ))) Потом даже, помню, по модему играли - там была сетевая игра... правда совершенно бесполезная )))

Introduction
In general

I am a person of very wide tastes and interests. I enjoy everything that «has a heart» (© C. Castañeda). I enjoy to meet and try to understand different people, to study and master different new things, to explore, to feel, to taste, to understand.

Having some areas of professional expertise secured and going further I consider myself a generalist rather than a specialist. The ultimate goal of a generalist is being a polymath and reconstructing the whole puzzle, the ultimate goal for a specialist as he specializes is, saying roughly, knowing everything about nothing. «... specialization is for insects.» " (© Lazarus Long (R. A. Heinlein)) :-)

In practice


I mostly earn my bread from working in the IT industry and its crossings with finance, media and travel industries.

My favourite programming languages are Scala and C# but I can use many other languages if they fit better (for a particular task). I use Linux (XUbuntu) as my primary OS (I also like Windows XP, FreeBSD, QNX and DOS). I am a certified Rockwell Arena simulation engineer and trainer.

Location and communication

I live in Prague, Czech Republic (and feel it being the best place in the world I have been to, according to my taste).

I can speak English, Russian and Czech languages fluently. I can understand Slovak, Ukrainian and Belorussian with almost the same ease. I've also got some basic skills in French (used to speak near fluently but have forgotten because of lack of practice), German (studying right now) and Polish. Needless to say I am fond of languages.

I prefer e-mail as the main communication channel, Skype when an audial conversation feels more convenient and Google+ as a social network. I am glad to meet exciting people from all over the world.

Social networking policy

All my posts are either public (the majority) or personal. I make no limited or circle-specific and almost no community posts.

I can hardly be insulted religiously (though I am not a pure atheist and don't advocate abuse) or any way alike. I never report posts other than those I can qualify as SPAM. At the same time I can myself post or reshare something of questionable appropriateness on occasion - if you are going to dislike that and don't want to see anything like that in your stream (or, for example, if your underage children can access your Googe+ on occasion) I strongly encourage you to unfollow and, if necessary, block me rather than to report.

I rarely post any original content. I mostly reshare whatever catches my eye. But I am not a bot and am prone to very active discussion participation in comments.

I use to review people who starts following me (as far as Google+ notifies me about it) and follow back if the profile seems an alive, interesting personality (I also don't mind explicit content or content of questionable appropriateness). But don't bother following me if you're a bot or a network marketer doing it just to get me follow back. If you think I might like following you but believe I have missed your emergence - please don't hesitate to leave a comment at a post of mine or contact me personally.

If you can't see any activity from my side for a relatively long period of time - that most probably neither means I'm dead nor I have given up using Google+. Some times I just need some solitude.

Religious views

What I usually testify to be my "religion" is agnosticism, a mild meritocratic, somewhat stoic sort. I personally believe that the G-d (whatever meaning we consider) speaks to one through his own reason and conscience and rarely through the mouths of clerics. I generally dislike fanaticism, excessive ritualism, dogmatism and clericalism, and condemn anti-secular, anti-education, anti-ecumenism, anti-sexuality and anti-equality parts. At the same time I think that almost all the religious, esoteric and philosophical teachings, as well as cultures and sciences harbour a piece of divine wisdom so I respect their followers as far as they act peacefully and with respect to others. Among the deadliest sins I condemn are hypocrisy, ignorance and their promotion. Among the key merits I value are intelligence, knowledge and honesty of a person to oneself (and to others of course but being honest to oneself is essential).

Political views

A state policy of my dream is liberal social technocracy. Liberal because people are to be free (while, not to forget, security (including social) is a precondition to freedom), social because taking care of the basic social as well as physical security is the ultimate function of a state and almost the only obvious reason for a state to exist (without it anarchy seems no worse), technocracy because serious things are to be engineered and driven a mindful way, by accordingly qualified professionals.
