I am writing my doctoral dissertaton to acquire the degree of a Dr.phil. (PhD) in sociology; my topic’s working title is: Hacking Society? A former product manager for online entertainment, my areas of expertise include consulting, coaching, conception, and creative services. I am working as a freelance writer, translator, illustrator, researcher, and editor.

Quotes that sometimes cross my mind: Don’t expect anything, be prepared for everything. Vive le temps volé – jouis-en sans soucis. I really likes these three mottos: videtis illam spirare libertatis auram (Stanford University); hic et ubique terrarum (Université de Paris): scientia et conscientia (Universität Augsburg).

I like the following quotes:

“I like to think (it has to be!), of a cybernetic ecology, where we are free of our labors; and joined back to nature, (…) and all watched over by machines of loving grace.” —Richard Brautigan
“Existence is Identity, Consciousness is Identification.” / “All work is creative work if done by a thinking mind.” —Ayn Ran
“It’s not about making the perfect decisions, it’s about making every decision perfect.” —DMNK
“You study, you learn, but you guard the original naiveté. It has to be within you. As desire to drink is within the drunkard or love is within the lover.” —Henri Matisse
“Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.” —Auguste Rodin
“Art is not the application of a canon of beauty but what the instinct and the brain can conceive beyond any canon.” —Pablo Picasso
“[T]he only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn (…)” –Jack Kerouac
