Frank wanted to become both lawyer and astronaut and thus failed at both. He then focused on tangible skills like road pavement, hybrid cooling systems for server farms and money printing plates, as these hold together society at its most vulnerable spots. He is holding about 500 lacewings (Chrysoperla Carnea) at home and gives each ones individual Hindu names. When it comes to infrastructural hacking, he holds the part between her closed eyes with her fingertips and thinks loudly.

Edward is a failed artist. He visited six different art schools in Amsterdam, Mexico City and Shang Hai a.o., but never finished a degree, as this is what makes a good artist biography. Desperate for success, he pretended to be politically minded, joined Peng and ever since is constantly brow beating every conceptual meeting to cover his insecurity. You can count on him to create to most poetic press releases and he was often observed at 3am with tears in his eyes reading positive press coverage over and over again. his favourite dish is plain toast with a lot of butter.
