Keeping It Short

What is the essence of all my websites, my blogs and my CV?

I am:

  • Physicist as per my first degrees. Now I may again call me a Consulting Engineer in Applied Physics. Theoretical physics is still an important hobby of mine.
  • As an Engineer I am working on the simulation of heat pump systems.
  • IT Security Consultant - that's what I have called myself for more than 10 years. Currently I am interested in the security of smart meters.
  • Blogger - at elkement.wordpress.com. I have just celebrated my blog's first anniversary.
  • 'Settler' - living in the Pannonian Plain in the utmost East of Austria for nearly 15 years now.
  • Geek and Subversive Element.

If This Would Be Web 2.0 You Would Call This:
Elke Stangl's Profile

My CV - or my so-called profile in web 2.0 newspeak - can be found in: XING (German, with the remarkable exception of the following paragraphs) and LinkedIn (Englisch). Currently my web 2.0 avatar is describing itself as:

I am a physicist running a small company together with my husband. Following Star Trek terminology he is Chief Engineer and I am Science Officer.

I have designed and implemented Public Key Infrastructures (PKI, applied cryptography) for enterprise customers since 2002 and I have phased-out these activities at the 10th anniversary (mid of July 2012) in order to focus on renewable energies.

I am particularly interested in the interfaces between building technology, energy engineering and IT infrastructure ...

... and basically in all of physics, all of the history of science and all of the interdependencies between science and society. Since 2012 I am finally blogging on this at elkement.wordpress.com, though I am still also updating my ancient proto-blog-like personal websites (e-stangl.at, radices.net, and subversiv.at).

Why is this in English and the profile in German? Actually, my profile was in English till mid of 2012 as many of business contacts did not speak German. I am also blogging in English - reason to be determined.
