It is that easy to tag your politics posts, so please do that. Even if you're just venting.

Should I sign up for the VR hackathon on Seattle? It's one day after I fly in and I might be ridden by jetlag... but it sounds really exciting:


I'm a dad of the cutest and most awesome kid I know. also husband to an amazing wife.
I love video games and still believe they can truly impact us.
I'm an engineer, but also an artist at heart (I do not believe in the separation of left and right brain).
I love fixing problems and coming up with solutions.
I work as a programmer and love collaborating with and helping others. esp. people who are different from myself.
Currently I'm Germany, but will move to Seattle soon.

Anyone in the squad from Seattle? gonna move there soon. :)
