Hello world!

Setting up this blog was a matter of 10 minutes while filling it will probably take some more time. I have been a net citizen since its beginning. Having sent out my first (stored) email on Jan 18, 1993, my first web page (on a ftp! server) dates back to Feb 1, 1995. I was running one of the worlds largest websites on asthma and also a gene database for many years but haven´t done anything useful during the past 3 years.

Addendum

This blog serves as a testbed for the next few months if this kind of information exchange is of any use (except for paying bills of a lawyer). I will broaden here my view on science and refer to my private archive of ~16,000 scientific papers that I have collected since 1986 when starting my thesis.
