How to contact me

I keep this page as up-to-date as possible (last change 26 Dec 2009). When trying to get in contact with me, this is the place to look. Currently I am traveling around, with some longer stop-overs in European cities.

Generally it is best to contact me by email. My address is: meinhard at benn dot org [Go to email form]

I use free and open technologies for instant messaging (Jabber/XMPP) and internet phone calls (WengoPhone). Ask me if you would like to get in contact via those.

My postal address:

Meinhard Benn
Zum Petersberg 3
19065 Pinnow
Germany

Where am I from?

I grew up in Pinnow near Schwerin in North-east Germany. It used to be a village of 300 people until the 90s, when suddenly everybody could get loans for a house and fled the city. Now around 2000 people live there. Have a look at this rain map from a day in July 2005:

See the purple spot? That’s where I’m from – lovely reliable weather all year long. :)
