Most of what I do is related to science, research or computers. Not that I miss a social life or have no private life and maybe I rather do not have a professional life; I can never quite figure out what is what. The spare time left I spent on photography, music, books, movies, travelling… anything interesting, weird or strange that crosses my path. These articles are aimed to give an overview of some of this.
