Being a Hare Krishnas causes massive depression. It serves you well in that environment, but it does nothing for you when you come out.
About Anke Holst
I’ve been online for over 20 years. I joined the first BBS in 1991. I’ve lived in Germany, Sweden, Nigeria and now in London. With a background in publishing and an education from a great printing school in East Berlin, my career has been patchy, but my online existence has been going steady over all this time.
Since I moved to London in 2008, I’ve worked on some interesting projects, some of which were even my idea. Got Haringey libraries started on twitter and JFDI’d the London #localgovcamp in 2010. Organised a huge pop-up exhibition in London in an empty office building in Pentonville Road. Started the Unlibrary, a local co-working space in Crouch End. Built communities around mobile working and developed training methodologies for online literacy.
