Fabian A. Scherschel
Fab, also frequently known online as fabsh, was born and raised in Duisburg (which can roughly be described as the Pittsburgh of Germany, just that the hockey team is a lot less good). He has also lived a while in Queensland, Australia where he picked up most of his English language skills. He has studied Modern History, Politics and English in Bonn and has been an open source and free software enthusiast for many years now. Fab has run Linux full time on all of his computers since 2007. Other than that, he loves playing Minecraft, dabbles in the painting of canvas and little miniatures as well as computer art and enjoys listening to old school Rock’n’Roll. For a living, Fab writes as a technology journalist for the UK news site The H, which is part of the Heise family.
Other random facts about Fab include that he loves penguins (both the actual animal as well as ice hockey teams of the name) and foxes, is a huge fan of the short lived TV series Firefly, could never be a vegetarian, adores the music of Bruce Springsteen, dislikes religion, sucks at video games but loves playing them anyway, has been in a loving relationship for over a decade now, has been a Star Trek fan pretty much all his life, was once able to speak French at least passable, hates spiders and he is also a hat aficionado. Oh yes, and despite longstanding rumours to the contrary, Fab is actually a really nice guy. If you’re interested in seeing what he is up to on a day to day basis, follow him on Google+ and Twitter.
