Blog

I ran my own blog from November 2006 till October 2014. All posts are still online, but I don't have time to update it anymore. Please note that all images and media files have been removed when the backup was moved to a new host in early 2016. Enjoy!

Future plans

30. july 2008

Since I announced that I'll leave my former company people keep asking me about my future projects, and I'm glad to provide some first details now.

First of all, I'll still have a regular job as I'll be working as a teacher from mid September on. One very positive aspect of my new job will be that I'll have more free time than before, which will allow me to pursue some private projects too. So in future I'd like to focus on two hobbies during my free time: free software and multimedia. 

When it comes to software, I'm talking about Open Source projects - like the CorneliOS webOS and application framework for example, which has already been downloaded over 14000 times from Sourceforge. I think CorneliOS is an amazing technology and it will definately serve as a basis for all of my future Open Source software projects. CorneliOS is still a quite experimental framework, so one of the first goals will be to make this an attractive tool for end users too. There's still a lot of work ahead, but I'm very confident that this goal can be achieved very soon.

What about multimedia? Years ago I owned a recording studio and I was running several music projects. During the past few years my job didn't allow me to pursue such interests, but I always planned to reactivate the studio one day. So one of the things I'm currently doing is rebuilding the recording studio. It will become a project oriented audio/video studio that I'll use for my own projects, but I definately won't record any bands in my basement. There are tons of unsuccessful studios of that kind and I don't think it would make any sense to add another one.

So this is basically what I'm up to, more details will become available soon.
