Johannes Ernst

Technologist, founder, organizer.

I believe the world is better if people are in control of their own destiny. In technology, that means we need to control our data, freely choose the software we use with our data and fairly negotiate the terms by which we interact with others, including which data is and isn't shared.

Also: Facts matter. Empathy, inclusion, opportunity. I have no time for supremacists of any kind.
