Last time I've written anything here, it was non-positive. In terms of outlook at the world, the planet.
Didn't improve much meanwhile. However. Where do we have to put the lever in, I wonder.
I think the ecological mess we're steering into (biodiversity + climate) is a urbanisation problem. Our cities are deserts, and they grow, an will continue to grow.
Since I don't think that we'll be, as a race, be able to change that, we have to change the cities.
And that means changing architecture. The whole glass and concrete wall concept, the designing buildings for maximum photo effect (which they are generally) has to give way to the creation of landscape which can be settled by nature. Skyscrapers have the become mountains of flowers, with mandatory bee colonies, and insect tribes.
Water has to be kept high, and soil has be get the chance to accumulate.
Humans have to start to become a positive ecological force to avoid dying.
if we don't, we probably deserve to be replaced.
Pen & Paper Rollenspiele funktionieren so: Jeder Mitspieler überlegt sich einen Protagonisten in einer (gemeinsam definierten) Spielewelt; gemeinsam entwickelt man dann eine Geschichte bzw. erzählt sich gegenseitig, was die eigenen Charaktere (so nennt man die erdachten Personen meistens) tun bzw. erleben.
Servus and welcome.

Professional stuff first:
While I've left EFSTA with end of 2017, who I wish the very best, and trust that the sucess story I have been working on for two years will continue to evolve, I am joining Voithofer + Partner in Steyr, a IT consulting firm.
While my focus is shifting to a more dedicated management role, I hope to being able to continue offering support for fiscal topics through my new engagement. Feel free to contact me at your convenience.
This is my hoard of thoughts, concepts, stories. Unordered and incomplete, and some very, very old, and obsolete. However. Things need time to grow, and often the most spurious side-thought leads to the most interesting results.
You're very welcome to have a look, and comment.
ps. and one day, I'm sure, I'll have the time to actually find a proper template, and slap it onto this thing. ;)
Hier finden sich Lernmaterialien, Meine Überlegungen zur Grammatik in verschiedenen Sprachen und was mir sonst noch an Nützlichem in Sachen Schulwissen über den Weg läuft bzw. gelaufen ist.
Ergänzungen immer herzlich willkommen.

Oh man. Date of no return for not-turning this so-far-habitable dirt (or rather:water) ball into a pressure cooker: 2038.
Having some experience with "oh, but we can't do it THAT fast", this means: 15 years minimum (more like 20). 2038... minus 20... let me think... *ponders*... 2018. Fuck. (sorry, but the truth habitually not is a gentle thing, to use a yodaism). Which makes the right honourable PM of Tonga, ʻAkilisi Pohiva, the genius of the day. (Guardian just reported him saying that politicians not believing in climate change [believing!!! for gods sake] should be relocated to the next asylum for the clinically insane [or somesuch]).
So. We're gonna die, unless we really get our shit together. No surprise there.
"We" meaning every single one of us, where "us" means humanity.
What am I doing: reduce plastic, reduce car, reduce meat, reduce power use. Set out sugar and honey bowls for bees. No unnecessary chemicals. No unnecessary stuff. Talk to people, make them aware. Politicize the whole thing, and pester everyone and their dog concerning this problem. No electing of "quarterly results are more important than survival of the race" idiots.
If I weren't such a coward, I'd join sea shepherd. But I am. So I'll throw some money. Yeah, wimp. There you go with your comfort zone.
