I am a physicist and engineer working / playing with: Control systems, software, IT security, public key infrastructure, heat pumps, thermodynamics, simulations. Interested in: History of science, tech & culture, pentesting & hacking.
This blog’s original name and tagline was:
Theory and Practice of Trying to Combine Just Anything
Physics versus engineering
off-the-wall geek humor versus existential questions
IT versus the real thing
corporate world’s strangeness versus small business entrepreneur’s microcosmos,
knowledge worker’s connectedness versus striving for independence.
elkement is an amalgam of my name Elke and the Subversive Element. I run an engineering and IT consultancy together with my husband. Following Star Trek terminology he is Chief Engineer and I am Science Officer. Legal notice.
