Achim Wagenknecht

Hi! 👋

My name is Achim. I'm from the beautiful and heavily underestimated city of Wuppertal in Germany. I'm a journalist and I specialize in open source. I like hot spicy asian food.

I'm the founder of RoundOF (roundof.org), a social network with social funding.
RoundOF is chargeable based on a gift economy: members grant each other periods of membership. It's like a drinking round. No one pays for themselves on RoundOF – you can't. In gift economies timing is critical: How long do you wait to return a favour? WM would allow me to set much shorter and cheaper periods of membership and therefore intensify the social interactions of giving.
