I am 50+ and start a regular blog now. Let's see how this goes, as this is not my day-to-day technology and regular writing not a familiar area for me so far. But it is never to late to start something completely new and it will be
a great learning experience for me and to share this with others in a similar situation? If you are interested to contact me, please email

for the next higher level in the hierarchy? Or the more challenging and interesting one, to start with something completely new and different?
I will find out in the coming month, which direction will be the better choice for me? Above the age of 50,
but still with another 15 - 20 working years to go, until I will reach the current official retirement age of my government.
To be very clear at the end of this introduction. I am doing this for me and not for money. The links and references

but I do not plan to proactively push the distribution.
