Mission Statement

I am a Jack of all trades in technology and I believe in the power of prototyping to evaluate business models.

My mission is to solve hard technical or conceptual problems. Therefore I either build and operate stuff very efficient by myself or work together with startups and entrepreneurs, tackling their technical challenges.

If you are interested in my services, hire me! If it is not urgent, then you are welcome to just follow / friend me at Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn because I post quiet some content on those topics.

Why, how and what.

Why: Prototyping

Good software is always used but never finished. I believe in the power of prototypes to answer specific questions during the process of evaluating the underlying business idea.

On the philosophical side, prototyping for me means to always have a zen-like curious beginner’s mind – free of any possessions, since it is clear that everything is in a state of constant change.

And this understanding, together with constant testing on real humans, is the only way to understand the customer as well as the very own business model.

How: Focus areas

What: Models of collaboration

Whom: Use Cases

Principles: my personal values – expressed through others.

Man is the sum of his experiences. In this manifesto I describe myself through the thoughts of others. These are not just detached quotations, but highly condensed knowledge, each with its own recommendable text behind it.

Paul Graham

I like to find (a) simple solutions (b) to overlooked problems (c) that actually need to be solved, and (d) deliver them as informally as possible, (e) starting with a very crude version 1, then (f) iterating rapidly. >>

Daniel Gross

If you want to make something grand, don’t start with grand ambitions.
Get in the habit of simplifying.
Validate your market.
Launch uncomfortably quickly.
Perpetual motion. Just Do It. Make little steps every day. >>

Cal Newport

The ability to perform deep work is becoming increasingly rare at exactly the same time it is becoming increasingly valuable in our economy. As a consequence, the few who cultivate this skill, and then make it the core of their working life, will thrive.
High-Quality Work Produced = (Time Spent) x (Intensity of Focus) >>

Naval Ravikant

Seek wealth, not money or status. Wealth is having assets that earn while you sleep. Money is how we transfer time and wealth. Status is your place in the social hierarchy.
Fortunes require leverage. Business leverage comes from capital, people, and products with no marginal cost of replication (code and media).
You should be too busy to “do coffee,” while still keeping an uncluttered calendar. >>

Henry Rollins

I think it’s important if you’re a creative person, or aspire to be, that you don’t spend too much time aspiring or asking advice. Just get going and address what’s roaring inside you. >>

Hunter Thompson

[..] a man who procrastinates in his CHOOSING will inevitably have his choice made for him by circumstance. >>
