Hi, I am yoyo. I am into physics, especially many-body systems and how the interaction leads to complex behaviors. I am also curious about intelligence, the brain and computing as well. My favorite anime/manga is Ghost in the Shell (1989-1990 manga, 1995 movie and S.A.C and S.A.C. 2nd GiG). My favorite movie is The Matrix (1999). My favorite book is The Catcher in the Rye and currently reading Gödel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid. My favorite tv show is Mr. Robot. My favorite animals are my dog, my cats and orca. My favorite games are Skyrim and Eldritch horror board game. My default text editor is neovim. I can make Android apps with Kotlin, I started to learn rust and learning German. I am interested in working on the pod backend, though I am open for other things.

One question is that the repo seems like not public (correct me if I am wrong as I am new to gitlab); I could not fork or do the merge request. Should I ask to be registered?

Hey yoyo, nice to meet you! I don’t recognize your nickname so I suppose we haven’t met yet. I would love to have a chat on zoom/skype/hangouts to discuss what the most exciting and pressing topics are you could help us out with. We need to add you to gitlab in order for you to really contribute for now, which I am happy to do (we are looking into a better solution for that). Let me know if you want to chat and I will send you details in a PM!

Hey Yoyo, Welcome!
I’m Bram, and a part of Memri for a bit more than two years now, and mainly focused on how we organize ourselves. I’m about the only one in the team with zero programming skills (But I’ve been told I’m a Markdown hacker.… so I’ve got that going for me, which is nice). Currently live in Utrecht, Netherlands. Favorite book is Mismatch (how we are deceived daily by our ancient brain) Love running, and I’m enjoying trail running more and more, unfortunately we don’t have any mountains around here. I’m also part of a soccer team, which is not to good, but it’s fun :smiley: Besides working at Memri, I’m also involved with Corporate Rebels who write about all kinds of organizations that are organized in non-hierarchical ways.
