Le roi du TYPO3 – king of TYPO3

Seite 2 / 6

A popular ride

In fact, the time in Basel gave me the idea to arrange a snowboard tour for the TYPO3 community the following winter. 25 people came! I had to call the travel agency multiple times during the registration period to have them book more cabins. After some days in the Alps, experiencing the external enthusiasm around TYPO3 by the participants, I told one of them: “Now, even I am beginning to believe in TYPO3!”. It was truly surreal to witness the growing popularity of TYPO3 since I felt it was only a by-product of sharing a tool I had developed with great love and ambition for my own needs. But I felt very good about this growth because it meant it was pure and natural. Nothing was forced or marketed. It grew because it was good and useful! It survived because it offered value. And maybe God even helped to push it?

Gods favourite?

Did God secure the success of TYPO3 or not? I don’t know. It’s such a theoretical question. I guess, if TYPO3 was entirely without factual quality it would look like a miracle that thousands of people would still flock around it. Clearly TYPO3 has qualities. Is that enough on its own or does it need a metaphysical helping hand? As most of you may know, my Christian faith always played a role in what I did with TYPO3. I’m a believer. But don’t think I have a perfectly intimate relationship with God. I’m not God’s favourite. I’m sceptical. I’m broken. I’m desperately seeking identity and meaning like everyone else. I feel very much like a spiritual amateur. But what I have found is the path I know to be true inside. A discovery everyone of us must make on their own. In a dissolved post modern reality, Jesus is like a gravity field of forgiveness and peace to me. And as a bonus, Christianity makes sense rationally: It can satisfy the heart’s desires. It describes human nature quite accurately. It brings about a great set of values. It claims to offer an eternal life in which I think we will be ashamed to look back and see how short sighted and fearful we have lived “on earth”.
