I am a ChickenBrain

After trying out blogging for a bit more than a month I decided to invest a little time into using my own domain now for the blog. It is still hosted with Google Blogger, but now to be found under
"We know nothing at all. All our knowledge is but the knowledge of schoolchildren. The real nature of things we shall never know."
Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
The interesting (for me at least) thing about that domain is, that I found the name ChickenBrain at the age of 17 as a Character name for a Roleplay game (quite some years ago), before I explored the Internet. I quit roleplaying some years ago, but that nick kind of sticked to me. At that age I had a very good teacher for philosophy (looking back my school was really cool to offer that course, at that age I did not recognize the school to be cool). That (wise) man teached us in a good way that we do not know anything, so ChickenBrain became my pattern (and still is my main pattern).
I know that I know nothing and therefore I seek for answers (and will hopefully continue seeking for answers). Funny enough in one job interview (with a headhunting consultancy) I was told to not use my primary email adress for sending the resume, but shall use something more professional. I was listening to the headhunting clerk and told him that I will not (and hopefully never) will be working for a company who does not value people who openly confess that they know nothing.
So, if there is one thing I know, than this is the message:
I am a ChickenBrain
