Full week at a conference, so basically no news/links on my side. However, going back to meet people face to face was amazing. Super cool talks, nice food, and my body clearly saying to me that I am not used to being far from home for a full week anymore.

Missing the point
Apparently, if you are a sociopath, you think that people calling you “the eye of Sauron” is actually a nice thing. God I cannot wait for the moment he gets kicked out of Facebook forever.

War crime after war crime
This week we have seen clear proof that Russia has been carrying out horror after horror for more than a month now. Meanwhile, the Germans say that stopping buying fuel from Russia would damage their economy, and so they keep financing the terror that kills Ukrainians every day. I would love to see the opinion of the Greeks, who where abused by Germany measures during the last financial crisis (~2007 onwards) and have not been recovered yet.
