What am I doing now?

This is my /now page. Perhaps you should have one, too?

Spending a lot of time practising in the German longsword tradition since a few years. Also into cycling minimalist bikes.

Trying to get back into reading fiction. Mostly SF&F.

Still living in Malmö in the south of Sweden with my wife Petra and our kid. My two grown kids Ludvig and Gabriel have moved out.

We also have a country cottage about 60 km from Malmö where we like to spend time.

I now work as an applied researcher and programmer at Tillitis. Our first product is the TKey, a small computer in the form of a USB stick.

In late 2022 the small research team I was a part of at Mullvad VPN split into different companies. One of them is my current employer, Tillitis AB, which designs and sells security hardware. The main office is in Gothenburg but I mostly work from home or co-working spaces in Malmö.

Still managing all the hack.org services by myself.

Trying to work a ~30-32 hour week since 2008, mostly to get more time with my family, my books, my swords, my bikes, and to keep my wits about me.

I continue to practise zazen, the zen buddhist form of sitting meditation which I started doing in my teens.

I'm on a lengthy social media break but maintain a skeleton presence on some of them. Please don't be offended if I'm not answering your friend request. The one I use the most is the Fediverse instance on @mc@hackers.town.

I have been known for taking social media breaks from time to time. Please note that toots are deleted automatically after a month so if I'm on one of my breaks my timeline may be empty.

Most of the local groups I was a part of are dormant: Malmö Open Source Interest Group, the hackerspace Forskningsavd (web-site down and the space closed), #merakrypto, et cetera. Our weekly hacker's lunch is still alive but it was virtual-only for quite a while during the pandemic.
