Another Tag Meme

Stefan Tilkov,

There’s a new meme going around, originally started by Jeff Pulver, asking you to share 5 little known facts about yourself and then tag five people from your blogroll to do the same. Steve Jones tagged me, so I’ll comply:

  1. I do not spend the whole day blogging.
  2. I’m totally into progressive rock/art rock music and spend quite a bit of time organizing my (now digital) collection of Yes, Genesis, Jethro Tull, Marillion, Dream Theater, Spock’s Beard, Flower Kings, and similar albums.
  3. While my mother is German, my father is Bulgarian. (I don’t speak a single word, sadly.)
  4. I earned my first “real” money when I was 19, by translating the manuals for Excel 2.0 from English to German (1 Deutsche Mark for every standard 55-character line).
  5. I have a wife and two kids (a boy aged 9 and a girl aged 2) and two dogs (an Irish Terrier and an Airedale Terrier).

I’m tagging Mark Baker, Steve Loughran, David Orchard, Mark Nottingham, and Charles Miller.
