The people behind Peng! are hard working and highly professional. The inner core is small, but there are more than 100 people in the extended network, having all kinds of backgrounds: science, media, politics, art, craft, public service. We also hire external specialists to work with on specific campaigns.
Karoline is a mechanical engineer and once owned a monsterbike workshop in Rajasthan. She married and divorced a German and set up an electricity sharing collective in Berlin that redistributes electricity bills through physical hacks into households and databanks. After a major electrical shock, she left the collective and focussed solely on Peng engineering issues. Karoline is extremely religious when it comes to politics.
Heinrich always tries to look funny but keeps laughing at inadequate moments. Heavily identifying with his ADHD diagnosis, he likes to use Peng´s own disruption tactics in internal meetings, creating strategic disturbances when the team discussion is too focused. He mainly lives off grandmas who believe he is their forgotten nephew and for rough times, he has a part time job at a local newspaper. We all know that if Peng were to crumble, he would be the last one standing, holding the pistol.
Stefanie is the virtual member of the Collective, only known through several false names and avatars. She is a security expert and has access to a number of classified databases which have provided crucial information for the most delicate Peng! actions. During collective chat-meetings, she usually plays online versions of Go, an old Chinese strategy board game. According to what we know, she has two dogs, a cat and a koala bear.
