I think that after almost two years it would be a good time for updating the about page and write a few words about myself. I think that no matter what the topic of a blog would be, it cannot escape a certain diary-like personal touch. At the Office of Strategic Contemplation you can learn about diffrent things that make up the domain of interest of an officer of strategic influence.
I started this website for topics mainly for music and “blinks” – just to point out my thoughts towards an event. Now I post about some of my main interests: music, sports, books, science (from a ‘design-theory’ perspective). Bellow is a graph trying to illustrate these areas. One particular section is dedicated to my virtual museum (which had a different wordpress page but now is joint here), where you can find samples from my own mineral-rock-fossil collection. From time to time I post plant or animal samples.
I like nature, wild animals, bugs and I wish I could make some explorations. I like narrow streets, dark places, static landscapes, the sun, and rushing water.
Music I like (this is the current hierarchy, not an all-time standing):
1. Porcupine Tree
2. Pain Of Salvation
3. Kevin Moore
4. Neal Morse
5. Dream Theater
