Hello there, I'm a software engineer by trade, working as a backend engineer with as of now.

When not at work, I like reading books on evolutionary biology, anthropology, science and technology and sometimes just a cozy comic book for that sweet feeling of nostalgia.

I self-host most of my services (of which this instance is one) and post my thoughts in my blog once in a while.

All in all, just trying to be a person in this world full of AI and bots :)

Man taking firewood to home as fuel, I was like this man when I was a little boy, we were traveling about 7 kilometres with a bulk like this.

I am honored to be chosen by the Nordic ministers of culture to be one of thirteen experts in a new Nordic think tank. The think tank will take a closer look at the tech giantsโ€™ influence on democracy in the Nordic Region and come up with proposals for solutions.

The think tank will carry out the work over the course of the next 12 months, and will result in a presentation of its recommendations in the first half of 2023. 

So all thoughts and comments are welcome!
