Hello World!
I'm Iraklis

About Me

My name is Iraklis Kyriakidis. I'm a programmer, blogger and technologist. I live and work in Stockholm, Sweden for the Enetrprice Software Development Team at Xylem, but this website/blog, its content and opinions are my own. I blog about technology, culture, gadgets, diversity, code, the web, where we're going and where we've been. I'm excited about community, media, entrepreneurship and above all, the open web.

More about me

I am an early adopter, I opend my first web page using a USRobotics on a dialup connection (9600Kbps). I got my first mobile phone back in 1994!! It was an Ericsson GH 218 I like travelling a lot, especially by car. I like fast cars/motorbikes/ribs, everything that can release my adrenaline. I like the sea, I like swimming, diving, sailing just everything related to sea. I have been hacking hardware and waste time since I was a young kid. I speak Greek and Pontic Greek, originally spoken in the Pontus area on the southern shores of the Black Sea. I like reading, I read a lot, I like learning new stuff. I love technology, and everything related to that.

My main belief is that “Imagination is more important than knowledge…” - Albert Einstein.

That's me, today. I'll be different tomorrow, hopefully better.
