About me

My name is Richard Hemmer and I live in the fair city of Vienna (consider this also the information to satisfy the §25 Mediengesetz). This blog is a mashup of all the things I'm interested in, which are a few. You'll find posts about tech-stuff, food, drink, history, literature, films, everyday life and a whole lot more.

Ages ago, when I thought I needed to streamline my writing, I created blogs for all these various interests, only to realize that maintaining six instead of one blog is cumbersome and keeps me from actually writing things. During the last few months I imported what I wrote on my various blogs into this one, so you might find some broken images and other wacky things somewhere in my posts. I am fine with that, I hope you're too.

I'm one half of Geschichten aus der Geschichte, a podcast in German about history. It's great fun and you should listen to it. I also created this smaller, less frequent podcast about self-hosting the software you use daily. It's called the Selfhosted Web Podcast and it, too, is quite a lot of fun.

I earn my living by doing things on and for the web, history, films and video-games. Here's more on that.
