Looking at recent discussions, I feel that more and more people are starting to think about ethically and morally correct work. Many of us keep asking themselves if their work is meaningful or if it matters at all. But in a well-functioning society, we need a variety of things to live a good life. The people writing novels that delight us are just as important as those who fight for our civil rights.

It’s important that we have people building services that ease other people’s lives and it’s time to set our sense of urgency right again. Once we start to value other people’s work, the view we have on our own work will start to change, too. As we rely on book authors, for example, other people rely on us to be able to buy the books on a nice, fast and reliable web service.

Work & Life

Go beyond…

Last but not least, if you’re in Europe or Germany, how about joining the awesome CSSconf EU in Berlin on May, 5th? There are still tickets available.
I’ll be around at the sold-out beyondtellerrand in Düsseldorf again, and I’d love to meet you there. If you don’t have a ticket, maybe join one of the side events?
Or consider the Material Conference which will take place on August 17th in Iceland, a lovely island, and I’m sure the event will be great as well.
