It’s really hard to write
About pages for personal websites, isn’t it?
But what’s this website about? Well: Me.
So, naturally, let’s talk about some other interesting stuff first. As example, what’s going on with the Logo and the Name?
We’ll start with the Logo and break it down into its components:
A gray rectangle standing on its short side signifying space, an area or a room.
A dot designating a right angle, placed top right. 1
Circled by a cyan circle symbolizing the Degree Celsius, the color reminiscent of coldness and blue ice.
Moving on, we look for a synonym of right angle which leads us to corner. The circle says: Temperature, Winter! But cold will suffice. Bringing it all together we have cold corner - which is a literal translation of my last name.
We discussed how the Logo is a Quest of Lateral thinking, but why? That’s a good question with a simple answer.
All the domains with my last name were already taken.
The Person behind the Logo and Name
What about the Person behind it all? Well, I’m a thirty something, German and English speaking, in central Europe working and living, software developer.
When not programming for work or fun, I like to play around with hardware, collect gin, listen to audio books or play some games. I’m also keenly interested in Pen and Paper Role-playing games (such as Dungeon & Dragons, as made famous by Gary Gygax of Wizards of the Coast fame).
