JAKOBSoftware Engineer
  1. What is your favorite quote? My favorite quote is “It just seemed like a good idea at the time”. I remember it – in some form or another – from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, and typically it’s used to explain something that went awry. To me, however, it’s more of another way of saying “Just go with the flow and look ahead, not behind”.
  2. Travel by plane, train, or by car? Any mode of transportation is great! I used to love airplanes because they got me farther, but since I have kids I’m pretty happy with our old Renault Express from 1992. It provides us with maximum freedom and dependability to reach a secluded campsite in the southern Pre-Pyrenees.
  3. Visit Europe, SouthEast Asia or Mexico? I’d pick Southern and South-East Asia anytime for their incredibly flavored dishes and their stunning natural wonders.
  4. Would you rather explore a new planet, or the deepest parts of the ocean? Why? I find the cosmos fascinating and could easily picture myself peeking over the edge of a crater or rolling towards the twin moons horizon in my little Mars Rover.
