Living in beautiful Seeheim-Jugenheim (Germany) with my beautiful wife and four beautiful children, I at times try to do some reading, thinking, writing and experimenting on various topics.

As long as I can remember there have allways been ideas popping up in my head for projects that I’d like to persue but could not. How very disappointing that there is only 24 hours a day to make use of. How frustrating to see that having various ideas compete for attention all at the same time just isn’t productive.

The solution was to write ideas down, putting them to rest on paper, while trying to focus on just one of them.

As a result the collection of thoughts, ideas, project drafts and the likes grew for years and keeps on doing so. Chances are most of those topics will never grow into something too useful and interesting. But at times I find myself returning to an idea again and again, switching angles of how to approach it. Letting those sit on paper seems way too unsatisfying. And the same goes for prototypes and tools I implemented along the way. That’s why I decided to start exploring and publishing some of them. Why? Why Not! is my playground to do so.

I optimize for learning about topics I happen to be interested in. Beware, my focus might turn to a new direction as soon as I feel I learned enough.

You are welcome to look around, try stuff, add comments and let me know what you think about it.

What else?

A mathmatician by education I started to work as a software developer with an interest in knowledge management and open source technologies in 2000. Over the years my business focus shifted towards document based communications, output management, secure digital services and the postal industry. As of the start of 2016 my workday as a CTO with pawisda systems is devoted to help scaling business in Germany and establishing  international projects collaborating with the Universal Postal Union.


I’ve been with pawisda systems for about 13 years helping to gather a fabulous team, building a flexible, scalable and efficient plattform for the processing of hybrid mail and at the latest engaging in our ambitious efforts to grow our business.
