Silke Meyer

silke@dmx.systems

Silke first used DMX (DeepaMehta 2) to structure her scientific work while writing her PhD in political science. She sees science as one of the major use cases of the DMX Context Engine. From 2009 on, she started qualifying as a Linux System Engineer. Since then, she worked for the German Wikimedia chapter and for a hosting provider. Currently, she is working for the German Research and Education Network. She loves to build communication infrastructure with free software and she values data ownership in self-hosted IT infrastructures (like the DMX Platform). In her spare time, she likes to explore photography, yet another excuse to play with digital devices.

 

 

Juergen Neumann

juergen@dmx.systems

Juergen became DMX evangelist in 2004, shortly after digging deeper into free software, mesh-networking and initiating freifunk.net. He started working with computers in 1984, and since then has been looking for ways to deploy ICT in useful ways for organizations and society. He founded his first computer firm in 1990 and has become a serial entrepreneur. As consultant for ICT strategy and implementation he has worked with many major German and international companies and non-profit organisations. Somehow he was also appointed independent expert for the European Commission. Had the computer not been invented, he might have become a product designer, aerobic trainer, agile coach or just power bummer …

Jörg Richter

jri@dmx.systems

Jörg is the inventor of the DMX platform and its lead developer. After abandoning his LEGO bricks he discovered the computer as the ultimate tool for endless puzzles. That was 1981 when he learned Z80 assembler on a MPF-I. A year later he did Pac Man and Centipede clones on his ZX Spectrum. When at high school he created MIDI sound editors for Roland keyboards and sold them through G.C.Geerdes and Softarts. After studying computer science and linguistics he built the artfacts.net website, one of the largest about contemporary arts. Today he is passionate about designing the digital medium to its greatest potential, which according to Janet Murray is building shared structures of meaning. Together with MissVergnügen he regularly plays weird music at Berlin's Eschschloraque night club.

 

 

Tuomo Tammenpää

Tuomo discovered DMX some years ago and has been interested in exploring the user experience in knowledge management interfaces. Tuomo is a designer, entrepreneur and an artist from Kemiö, Finland. He shares his time between design commissions, cultural productions, and experimental prototyping. After twenty years of work with interactive media art and digital design he has focused his work on playful interaction in connected worlds, embracing the ideological framework of Open Hardware and Do-It-With-Others practices. In his spare time Tuomo explores the infinite possibilities of randomising the ingredients in cooking and the components in sound hacking, quite often at the same time.
