The Net

(elkement. Last changed: 2016-09-18. Created: 2015-08-17. Tags: Web, Blogging, Websites, Netizen. German Version.)

I am using The Internet since the early 1990s. My first website went online in 1997, and since the turn of the millenium I have been experimenting with various personal websites. Since 2004 I had bursts of blogging, though intercepted by silence.

2015 I have merged the separate sites subversiv.at, radices.net, and e-stangl.at here. This new elkement site is updated about once every two months, in a rather unspectacular way.

I am turning into an online dinosaur, and I notice many of my articles belong in the category: Writing online about about writing online about living on the web. Here, I give myself unlimited license to do so. Substantial content - science, technology, code - is to be found on the companion Wordpress blog for this site.

Working Remotely

Working Remotely (2017-12-02)
HTTP(s) (mis-)use connection magic enables me to work in a way I would have never envisaged 25 years ago - at the time when my most important 'files' were still contained in physical folders. I am able to work nearly remote-only, not only in IT projects.

Silent Online Writing: Introspection versus Science / Tech Writing (2016-09-17)
Post-rationalizing: After I overhauled my website here it dawned on me that my world has split into philosophical meta thoughts (here) and no-nonsense tech writing (there). Unfortunately, you are now: Here.

We Interrupt Our Scheduled Programming ... (2015-08-11)
I wax a bit nostalgic as this might be the last entry in this ancient pseudo-twitter stream (fed from a TXT-file-based 'database' I edit manually, BTW). I am going to re-do all my personal sites from scratch, and an I am really enjoying it. .NET and object-orientation - here I come, says the script-kiddy.

As the saying goes, an expert is somebody who has committed every blunder in their discipline. Thus I have finally made it.

Why Am I Online?

Why Am I Online? (2014-05-16)
Since 1997 I have been maintaining personal and business websites but I haven't joined the social media borg cube(s) before 2012.

I am Not a Writer

I am Not a Writer (2014-01-26)
I am not a writer. I feel I had to decide often between being a fence-sitting commentator or somebody who is in charge of and fully accountable for technical problem solving - and I always picked the latter.

This site contains a messy collection of allegedly original creative texts which are most likely unintended plagiarisms of really subversive thinkers. This might be true for all pseudo-subversive websites

The original newsletters are more than 8 years old, and it is hard to understand what in hell was on my mind when I had written those.

The Rise and Fall of an Intermittent Netizen ?

The Rise and Fall of an Intermittent Netizen ? (2012-11-02)
Online since the early 90s. Yet The Subversive Element might be an impostor netizen. I have never discussed in Usenet, learned programming on a C64, or compiled a Linux kernel.

There were times when the Element used to spam a group of people with self-referential e-mail content. People were forced to subscribe because at that time mass e-mails have not been illegal yet.
