What kind of person are you? What are your goals and ideals? What are your favourite interests?
Hi, I’m Basti, 30, currently working in Stuttgart as a Software QA Engineer. Since a very young age I was fascinated by everything futuristic and everything space related. As I never really believed in christian religions which were prominent in my hometown and school, futurism became sort of substitue religion. Growing older I become more of an “agnostic futurist” - I still believe in the potential of technology, but probably humanity never will become an interstellar civilisation after all.
I still strive for a unified, globalized, planetary society, which supports diversity, secularism, science, culture and social equity. I’m interested in AI research, memetics (Highly recommending Susan Blackmoores “The Meme Machine”), post fossil fuel age, technological & cultural evolution of the web and media, VR, AR, space exploration, exobiology, post capitalist economy… i could go on.
Besides futuristic topics I like to play guitar, play and develop video games (anyone here playing Overwatch?), dancing (lindy hop and forró), impro theater, travel, tv series (House of Cards, Game Of Thrones, South Park, Archer, Rick & Morty, + many more), movies (Quentin Tarantino, Lars von Trier, Darren Aronofsky, The Wachowskies) and music (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Die Antwoord, Tame Impala)
