Writing again

I write as long as I know how to use a text editor. It started early, I think when I was eight years old and my mum brought home a used computer. She worked at an IT company at that time, otherwise I don’t think my family would have gotten a computer that early.

My stories were about kids running through forests (the stuff I usually did as a kid), becoming witness of mystical situations (the stuff I wished as a kid to happen).

When I familiarized more with the internet and followed all kinds of blogs (oh these Google Reader times!), I was up for my own. It was called “Schuelerleben” (student’s life) and about my days at highschool. Two more blogs followed. One about the year I lived in Ghana. The other about the years I studied Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. And then - void. Somehow I felt I couldn’t write about my daily work, to protect my co-workers, me or my companies.

A few years have passed, and I see more and more topics around work that I want to write down like I used to write down what’s on my mind. Hence this blog, hence this first blog post. If you use a feed reader, I would be delighted if you added this blog to your reader.
