Preface

<- Back to the Overview

Hello there!

This is something new to me. Not only writing blog-posts, but also 1) an internship and 2) being so far away from "home" (roughly 800km) for several months. So stay with me while we discover this together.

Berlin

First of all:

$ whoami

My name is Jan (aka. JayVii), I am currently 22 years old and just finished my Bachelor's studies in economics in Germany's oldest town: Trier. However, economics haven't been the only topic I am into. In fact, my specialisations focused on two things:

  • empirical / statistical analysis
  • political economics

But apart from that, I am also greatly interested in technology, free software in particular. And I also care an awful lot about privacy, citizen's rights and how to enable people to protect themselves about the growing trend towards data-mining. This has a bunch of contact points with my studies, so it was only logical to me, to reach out and find some place I can contribute towards projects that do exactly that, while also improving my skills.

And I suceeded. I became an intern at the Free Software Foundation Europe, starting next week, until April of this year. I am really excited about what my particular tasks will be and I'll make sure to keep you up-to-date here...

I already got a teaser for you, though: I'll support the FSFE at FOSDEM 2018 in Brussels :)

FSFE

I am not sure yet, how frequent I will populate this blog, but I'll try my best. If you want smaller and more frequent updates, make sure to follow me on Twitter (boooooooh!) or the fediverse.

Cheers!
