About Me

"Silence is better than unmeaning words." - Pythagoras
I'm a blogger, netcaster, citizen journalist, vegan Android-expert, Astronomy-fan, Anime-sensei & Geocaching-pro.

The most urgent question: "What does Ryo mean?" - It's a Japanese forename and is spoken [ri:o] roughly like in "Rio de Janeiro"

Hey, you want to know more about me? Here you go:

I am running a few private websites and netcast shows (a.k.a. podcasts), and working on different places on the web to support free software, new ways to communicate and modern journalism. I'm not a member of any political party. I used to be an active member of an astronomical observatory, and of the "Planetary Society / S.E.T.I.", for several years.
