Full name is Claus Witt Jørgensen, however I almost never use Jørgensen (sorry dad). I have been called Claus Witt (or just Witt) for most my life - and it just kind of stuck…
I am a developer at Arnsbo Media and as such CTO at Fliva. I have worked here since 2008.
Yeah, I played in the Melodic Death Metal band Everticum. We played from some time in the nineties until 2000 and then again for a brief period from 2005 to 2007.
Yes, and no. To the untrained ear it is nothing but noise, however so is opera to some people. To others it is the sublime artform for expressing oneself.
Yes I certainly do. I have a boy called Toke, born in 2008, and a girl called Runa, born in 2012.
Yup! I married Iben in 2009, as a joined 30-year-birthday party combined with a wedding and naming-party for our son. A great party by all accounts.
I guess the first time we met - that we both can remember anyway - was when I was approx 13 years old, and still in school. I sat in the school library reading german for some classmates - and Iben overheard at laughed at me/us with her friend…
We had overlapping social circles so we met on a couple of occassions during my teenage years. At some point we ended up as a couple for some months.
After that we were “just friends” almost a decade until in 2007 where we somehow ended up together again, moved in together and got Iben pregnant all within a year.
Yes, it is. He was amputated because of cancer when he was exactly two months old.
Toke was born with cancer. We only knew when her was about one month old. Then the next month was spent in and out of the hospital. Toke was diagnosed with cancer when he was one month old, and got a total of three treatments with chemo - before the doctors realized that the cancer kept growing and surgery was needed. Sadly he had to be amputated exactly two months after he was born. However - only a month later he was declared healthy again.
I come from the oldest town in Denmark called Ribe.
I live in an appartment with two bedrooms (one for parents, one for the kids), a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom and a conservatory… Oh and a small garden - where we have a huge trampoline and our two barbecues (one for coal one for gas).
We rent. For now.
I worked at a small web agency called Wildside for approx 8 months back in 2008. Before that I had my own company called 9iA from 2001 to 2008.
We were a small web agency. We made our own CMS called i-update back in the early 2000s, but never developed it that much. We jumped onto Typo3 consulting in 2004. We got larger clients by using Typo3, however we never made any recurring revenue - apart from minor hosting deals - and as such the write your own software route would probably have been better from a long term echonomical viewpoint.
My cofounder and I closed down the company, and split the debt.
I have a couple of interests that share a common theme. I love to write! I love to wrote prose and poetry. I love writing music. I love writing software. Further I to become better at those things. As a result I love training, rehearsing and learning in those fields - and adjacent ones as well.
Well, I haven’t uploaded anything in recent years - I must get back to that at some point. But there is a video of an old Everticum song on Youtube
Oh - and not our old E.P. In Infinitum is on Spotify as well
Sorry, I have nothing at the moment. I’ll get back to you on that?
However I do post the odd demo at times.
I am trying to teach myself to draw. It is a on-again off-again kind of interes. I am trying to stick to it, but must admit - I am not very good at it. Neither drawing, nor sticking to learning.
Play guitar, write code, drink coffee, make dinner for the family.
Excercise and time with friends.
Eating I guess? Drinking calories (I love coke and latte’s). Watch tv.
