This is Matthias Kirschner's private blog. In my day job I am the president of the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE). I have been involved in Free Software since the late 90ies, so many of the posts here are about Free Software (also called Open Source Software). Beside my work I love playing with my children, and in my spare time assist in wilderness first aid seminars. I enjoy comics (e.g. XKCD and Transmetropolitan) and love listening to the band "Die Ärzte".
