So you found this blog and are wondering: What is this about? Who writes here? What does “Doxanthropos” mean? Why is the english so bad?
In case these are some questions, you might have, here is my attempt at an answer:
This is a blog from one person, me, that is interested in a bunch of things: Free (as in freedom) Software, online learning (especially MOOCs), Yoga and other stuff. So it is safe to assume, that I might write about these things, when I want to.
“Doxanthropos” has nothing to do with doxing (or doxxing), in fact I had not heard about this practise when I “invented” this name for my first blog, which is gone for some time. It is a mixture built from the ancient greek words “doxa”, which means meaning/opinion and “anthropos” which is known to mean man/human. This new word can be used as a cautionary warning: what I write in a blog, will be opinion or at least opinionated, even it it looks like bare fact. Humans tend to do that, having opinions.
My goal, language-wise in this blog is to write in english, because I don’t want to restrict myself to the stange filter bubble, that is germany. But having not that much practise in writing english, only in listening and reading, it will be broken english, the language of the internet.
