I was born in 1960 and I am a real full-blood german. I started
studies in linguistics, but quitted to start a career as a software
developer. After quite a number of occupations I am now working as a system
engineer / analyst (which is pretty frustrating, because the atmosphere in
the industry is very agressive). Since we are parents, our values and views
of life have completely changed. Things I never thought of before are
really important now. One of these things is that I became one of these
really strange people who think that the media and the shock wave of
information is the main reason for the lack of moral and social values and
abilities. So I don't have a television and just read local papers and the
news in Pacific Forum.
Like Ingrid, I haven't been involved in politics. This changed a bit when I
became chairman of the parent's council in Rebecca's day care center. At
University, I read quite a lot of philosophical stuff which, when I review
it now, I completely misunderstood (another change of values).
I like music (contemporary "classical" music, Jazz and all the in-betweens)
and cooking and ... eating (these are *not* the only things I do...)
Thanks to George and WAVE, I feel as if I have to become active with WAVE
now, although like Ingrid I don't know what it could be and if it's going
to be enough for what I think is the adequate role for a group like WAVE in
world politics. WAVE is certainly a very important attempt to coordinate
the quest of making this world a little bit more peaceful and worth living
in. I'll try my best to help.
