Hello everyone!

My name is Clemens and I am a co-founder and creative director of Vienna-based collaborative hub/game studio Broken Rules, who is probably most known for a game called Old Man's Journey:

My current goal is to start building and contributing more towards FOSS.

Since 2016, @rek and @neauoire have sailed across the Pacific Ocean as Hundred Rabbits—making art, games, and music on Pino, a sailboat turned into an off-the grid design studio powered by the sun, wind, and their own homegrown tools. youtu.be/BW32yUEymvU

Just stumbled across this fun little fact: the first .com domain was registered in 1985 and now hosts 'The Big Internet Museum', free entry 24/7: symbolics.com

I am specifically asking, because I'm looking for alternatives to Amazon. At the same time, I'm not sure I want to start collecting physical books.

On a reading note: how do you read books? Mostly paper? eBooks? If so, what reader do you use?

I am honestly surprised that I have only found out about this book now. I seems like it should be required reading in school.

I recently read 'Ishmael' by Daniel Quinn. It's a short, to the point and incredibly insightful explanation of why the world is like it is today. Told by a gorilla.

Recommend me some books that are inspiring. Especially focused on areas of creativity and technology and the combination.

The only other solution I see is to create offline software, which might be better anyway, but restricts users to a desktop computer or laptop. This feels especially cumbersome for quick tracking tasks.

In that respect, the two seem to collide and can't be handled without a lot of technical effort (SSL, HTTPS, User management, etc.).

But I've been wondering about this. How well does Open Source and Privacy play together. I would like to create an open system, but with the data it handles there needs to be privacy.

So following up on security stuff on my latest project, I've decided to go with a simple PHP login system. Still struggling to somehow work it into the existing structure.

Right now there are no security measures whatsoever and I am wondering which direction to go from here.

I am currently working on a tool that monitors specific medical data. The data can be edited through a website interface and is (currently) stored as a text file on the webserver.

Does anyone have pointers on FOSS that handles editing and syncing sensitive data through a webserver?

Also I'm very happy to be included here. I have long been looking for a new online/social home that isn't Twitter and I hope I will be able to set up my tent here.
