Markus thrives when he’s researching complex topics, and he is an expert in explaining and presenting them in understandable fashion.

The paths of Heinlein Support and Markus have crossed many-a-times over the last decades. We wrote articles for tech publications, some of them were edited by Markus, we met on, behind, or in front of open source stages, at industry fairs and conferences. Thus it is a great, great pleasure for us that Heinlein Support could fulfill our long-term dream of having a technical editor, and that Markus wants to take on this mission.

Our blog will benefit from technical topics for administrators, on Markus will throw the spotlight on topics of internet politics, IT security and data protection for everybody. Apart from that, he will revise, edit and extend our knowledge database – there’ll be a lot of new ideas and improvements coming up.
