Life, Work, The Universe and Everything.

(elkement. Last changed: 2017-05-07. Created: 2015-08-17. Tags: Life, Elke Stangl. German Version.)

Life, work, and anything in between. Perhaps what is called work-life-balance these days.

My web projects subversiv.at, radices.net and e-stangl.at (all consolidated and redirected here) were originally my creative playground and 'subversive initiative'. They helped me to deal with / survive in the so-called Corporate World.
In 2012 my elkement.blog had taken over this function temporarily. This blog article on the Cluetrain Manifesto covers my personal Zeitgeist best:  Burn the Org Chart – if Not the Organization – Down to the Ground.

Now I am gradually changing the 'philosophy' of elkement.subversiv.at: Very slowly and also in a subversive way - as this site not interactive, not 2.0, and I don't share my articles anywhere. It is or always has been about the interdepencies of 'Life' and 'Science'.

Scrolling down this list it seems a tad too negative to me. I think I tend to mull on already resolved things with hindsight, and I rather focus on The Difficult. The bright side of (my) life in this ancient era is maybe captured in articles in the categories Web and Art.

Next iteration: What's the purpose of this site? This site has more or less the same article over and over again – perhaps in disguise and interlaced with technical notes.

Again: Defining 'Subversion'

Again: Defining 'Subversion' (2015-04-01)
We are flabbergasted as we notice that we tied 'Subversion' to hackneyed clichés from managers' self-help books and Dilbert-style satire.

I have come a long way. I celebrate a year devoid of planning, of stress, of expectations. Don't Worry, Be Happy! This was the year of 2014.

Subversive Work

Subversive Work (2014-02-28)
The Element has tried hard to subvert the Modern World of Work. Not necessarily in a way comprehensible to anybody.

Not a translation of the German speech given on October 8, 1996 - rather some musings in retrospect.

About to Change (Though Unaware of This)

About to Change (Though Unaware of This) (2011-01-07)
On reviewing your one history you are always biased and tend to rewrite it silently. Thus I am keeping the old versions of my web pages and force myself to re-read, comment and gradually change them.
