Hi, thanks for dropping by. Now that you’ve somehow found me, let me tell you what this weblog is all about by describing the www – who, why and what.
Who is writing this stuff?
My name is Alexander Keim, I have a master in computer science and work as an IT- Consultant. That’s at least some basic information about myself and maybe I’ll manage to add some more in the future.
Why are you writing this weblog?
Actually Chad Fowler is responsible for this. In his book “My job went to India (and all I got was this lousy book)” he suggests to write a weblog. After giving this idea some thoughts I decided to give it a try for several reasons. One is that writing about things you are trying to learn will really help you in the learning process. Another is the improvement of my writing skills.
What are you writing about?
If only I knew. OK, I have some ideas, but a lot is still in the fledging stages. It will definitely be something related to software development – just some thoughts that i’d like to share or discuss. Well, there is more to talk about like e.g. “the human factor in software development” or self-development. While this baby matures I hope to come up with a better understanding of “the what” – the journey is the reward…
What is the meaning behind “A particle in time”?
A particle is defined as a small object that behaves as a whole unit in terms of its transport and properties. I think this is a fair description of a human being compared to earth history. Just a tiny little carbon-based life form (descended from an ape – as Douglas Adams might complete) or a wave in the ocean.
