I’m a #software developer currently living in #Germany. My focus nowadays is the web, but I love to tinker with electronics, learn new programming languages and platforms. I will try out anything tech-related I find interesting.
With over twelve years of experience in IT, I’ve changed several #technology stacks during that time. To mention all of it would be out of this scope, so I’ll leave it for a future entry (read: there’s a high chance it won’t happen). In my career, I worked both as an independent freelancer and a full-time employee for some pretty cool companies.
I take great interest in the impact of technology on #society and #politics. As a person who’s fascinated with ones and zeroes from an early age, I always liked to think about how we can make this world a better place through tech.

It is the intent of this author and purpose of this blog to propose afresh from its beginning, a genuine problem in #philosophy. A problem of method-induced creeping ignorance, wrought in the name of #science. A Tadpole or boot trainee is never considered a fully skilled soldier, until he or she first knows how not to endanger or abuse others with their weapon. In similar critical nature, until one understands how a philosophical definition or principle can be manipulated for ill intent, one has not really learned it. Such is the nature of ethical skepticism; an applied ability to spot the condition wherein skepticism is employed with the specific goal of cultivating ignorance inside #society. In order for us to hone our skills at spotting scientific deception through means of this false skepticism however, it becomes necessary that one approach afresh, many core ideas of philosophy.

1177 BC: The Year Civilization Collapsed (Eric Cline, PhD)
From about 1500 BC to 1200 BC, the Mediterranean region played host to a complex cosmopolitan and globalized world-system. It may have been this very internationalism that contributed to the apocalyptic disaster that ended the Bronze Age. When the end came, the civilized and international world of the Mediterranean regions came to a dramatic halt in a vast area stretching from #Greece and #Italy in the west to #Egypt, Canaan, and Mesopotamia in the east. Large empires and small kingdoms collapsed rapidly. With their end came the world’s first recorded Dark Ages. It was not until centuries later that a new cultural renaissance emerged in Greece and the other affected areas, setting the stage for the evolution of Western #society as we know it today. Professor Eric H. Cline of The George Washington University will explore why the Bronze Age came to an end and whether the collapse of those ancient civilizations might hold some warnings for our current society. #history #lecture #science
