Neil deGrasse Tyson is one of my favourite public scientists and since I was a small boy, I was wondering about the miracles of the universe. I don't have any proper education regarding astronomy or cosmology but want to deepen my knowledge. Currently, I'm using the telescope we have at Google to make my first steps into stargazing.
I read quite a lot and am constantly buying more books than I can read which leads to the natural consequence that I have read a third of each book before I get absorbed into another topic. One of my weird habits when it comes to books is to buy at least one book from every place I have visited, if necessary in the local language. Thus, I once bought Oscar Wilde's "Picture of Dorian Gray" in Turkish when I went for a trip to Istanbul.
I am 27, German, a tech geek, a social scientist and I care about the Internet. I have worked at the European Commission writing Internet Policy and currently, I'm working at Google which gives me a lot of time to pursue various nerdy interests.
