Hello, I'm Davide Wiest

My personality consists of two, seemingly contradictory sides: On the one hand, I like to get sh*t done. I care about logical arguments, facts, data. I don't believe in perfection, holding on to one opinion, ideology, or "objective truth", and especially not in "trusting your feelings". I believe in moving swiftly with a narrow focus and the right strategy.
On the other hand, I have a deep desire to know, explore, and create. I take my time to widen my understanding, follow my curiosity and pursue experiences with no clear outcome. Working has to be complemented with thinking, evaluating, and exploring.
This bimodal mentality helped me navigate through life. I am an open-source-developer, data and knowledge-mangement enthusiast, student, and view myself as a generalist: Over the years, I ventured into fields such as programming, investing, graphics design, web-development, data science, machine learning, formal logic, productivity, personal knowledge management and writing articles.
While the majority of my last years has been spent on programming projects, I'll now divide my focus between my studies, writing, digesting high quality information, and a small number of software projects with the most impact.
