Who are you and what do you do?

At The Sweet Setup:

Every week we try to post a new interview with someone about what software they use on their Mac, iPhone, or iPad. We do these interviews because not only are they fun, but a glimpse into what tools someone uses and how they use those tools can spark our imagination and give us an idea or insight into how we can do things better.

Today’s victim, er, interviewee:

Hello there — I am known to the Internet as BizDevCon. I am a native Austrian married to a lovely Filipina. We live in the beautiful city of Vienna, Austria. You can find more of me on Flickr.

I run my own business and I am highly-specialised in business development since 2007. I bring US-based high-tech companies to Europe and help them establish new markets and opportunities. My main client is a software company in the USA. We work over several timezones communicating via Slack mostly.

My second client is a local Austrian non-profit where I provide consulting services for finance and the growing IT infrastructure — like an outsourced CFO. Luckily, I can bring my own devices and implement software as I see fit.

I consider myself a Cypherpunk / Crypto Anarchist and I am interested in bitcoin and encryption. Last but not least, I am totally into pens and paper. I just love writing with a good fountain pen or playing with a cool ballpoint pen in a meeting. Like all pen geeks I collect pens and inks from various makers, but mostly Italian Montegrappa and German Montblanc. I write on Midori and Rhodia pads. (Field Notes do not work for me mostly because of my inks and B nibs.) I found a great workflow by drafting on pen and paper and then moving the content to the digital world by simply retyping notes or scanning pages into PDF.
