After starting my professional career in 1993 being a SW engineer for cordless DECT phones some years (in those days when cordless phones were big and ugly), I worked for 10 years in different fields of IT-research:
  • GIS - Geographic Information Systems,
  • Mobile Systems & Services,
  • Hypervideo / Mobile Media,
  • Mobile Knowledge Management.

I started to be as well interested in the social and philosophical impacts of modern IT and telecommunication technologies.
  • New Media Theory
