My real name is Christoph Koenig. I am a student of educational sciences at the University of Hamburg, Germany. I stumbled over open source and into MusicBrainz when I was somewhere in between educational philosophy (Bildung), theories of autonomous learning and postmodern sociology, and realized that open source hackers were doing what these scientists were writing about. I have since done a qualitative research on the Torvalds-Tanenbaum-Deabte and written my masters thesis about "Processes of Learning and Bildung in Open Source Software Projects".

So, this is a non-hackers version of how somebody gets addicted to MusicBrainz. I cannot code but am somewhat of a professional of communication, and I found MB pretty exciting in this regard.

I am a great fan of soft security and I argue against most formal structures when I believe that things could work without them. While often people tend to argue for formal structures when they believe that things might break without them. In this respect I got and get involved in lengthy discussions on the MailingLists and on the MusicBrainzWiki.

History

This is usually hoplessly out of date. But these are the things I have been involved here (For a more up to date list, just look for my name on RecentChanges)

Kind of To DO List

This is so out of date, you cannot even imaginr how much. Don't really know why I keep it here :-)
