About M-A-O-L

All posts on maol absurdus ordinarius logicus are written by Markus ‘maol‘ Perdrizat, IT Systems Architect turned IT Auditor at one of the Big Four. If you’re curious about the blog name – I’m happy to share some speculations on what it may mean, but preferably over a beer or two 😉

Earlier Incarnations of the Blog

This blog has seen a number of changes in the last years. It started in 2000 in English, switched to German in 2003, and back to English and a more technical focus in 2010. And recently, @maol tends to see more frequent updates…

2010 – today (English)

It’s a way of staying up to date on interesting stuff, mostly related to enterprise technologies, the social web, and security. A link blog mostly, occasionally with free commentary.

2008 – 2010 (German)

2008 Umbenennung zu maol Jeopardy! Die Artikel folgen dabei dem Jeopardy!-Format von Antwort-Frage. Das hat den Vorteil, dass die Artikel so angenehm kurz bleiben, da Markus feststellen musste, dass er sowieso keine Zeit hatte, um längere Artikel zu veröffentlichen 😉

2003 – 2008 (German)

Nach dem Rücktritt von Symlink wurde das Blog als maol symbolisch von 2003 bis Anfang 2008 ziemlich aktiv geführt, und die Themen Oracle, Social Networks, System Engineering und Web 2.0 in rund 900 Artikeln abgedeckt.

Die Kommentare zu den Artikeln konnten eine Weile (2003/04) nach dem Wiki-Prinzip von jedermann geschrieben, geändert und gelöscht werden. Wer sich durch einen Kommentar in seinen Rechten oder Gefühlen verletzt sieht, kann Markus unter maol@symlink.ch kontaktieren.

2000 – 2003

In the early years, the blog name and URL changed a couple times until it went live on maol.ch. More activity went into founding and growing Symlink in these years, so not too many posts in this period.
