About Jos F. Kirps
Teacher, software developer, platform creator, and musician from Luxembourg, Europe.
Countless artists, from Chuck Berry over Black Sabbath to Radiohead. No favorite genre, although Jos usually prefers alternative and underground stuff, from weird indie music to heavy metal. Restarted collecting vinyl records a few years ago.
Too many to name them all – from Citizen Kane over The Godfather, Star Wars and 2001: A Space Odyssey to Pulp Fiction and The Big Lebowski. Fan of cult and underground movies, from The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari over Jörg Buttgereit to Tommy Wiseau's The Room.
The Open Society and Its Enemies (Karl Popper), Finnegans Wake (James Joyce), The Limits To Growth (Meadows, Meadows, Randers, Behrens), various books on systems theory, and some other stuff.
Monty Python's Flying Circus (plus the movies of course), Married With Children (that's one great childhood memory), Breaking Bad, and Game Of Thrones of course.
Highly influenced by Karl Popper as a teenager, and not supporting one specific political party. In favor of a cooperative and collaborative Europe and of open borders, but highly suspicious of the lobby-driven monster the European Union has become. Can't support politicians who don't respect youth, society, and the planet.
Influenced by Karl Popper, Immanuel Kant, and more recently by Nick Bostrom. Thinking about the meaning of life quite often.
Highly interested in science, quantum mechanics, and relativity. Skeptical when it comes to superstring theory, not too optimistic that mankind will ever be able to crack quantum gravity. Big fan of Albert Einstein, Richard Feynman, Werner Heisenberg, Murray Gell-Mann. The Earth is not flat.
Not religious, but no longer sure if there is no creator – if we're simulated, then maybe there is.
