About me

My name is Matija Šuklje but other geeks often call me Hook. I am a lawyer by profession and hacker by heart.

With two decades of experience in the FOSS world – ever at the nexus between the engineers, lawyers, businessmen, and policy makers – I truly enjoy making complex legal, technical, and similar thoughts easier for others to understand. Hopefully this humble blog helps a bit towards that goal.

I also have a soft spot for the good things in life, such as tea and sailing, which sometimes reflects in my posts.

Boring disclaimer: As the title and domain name clearly imply, Hook’s Humble Homepage is my personal website and blog and should be taken as such. If you are interested in any official statements and positions of groups and projects I am affiliated with (e.g. FSFE, ELSA, KDE, Gentoo, LUGOS, Cyberpipe/Kiberpipa), companies I work (Liferay) or have worked for, my (former) clients or just people I know, turn to their (official) websites and the means of communication they use.

My Projects

  • DE razor blades test List of my favourite DE razor blades, tested with a (quasi-)scientific method.
  • FSFE Legal team Helps everyone to Free Software legal information, experts and support. I led it for five years and continue to be an active member.
  • Cyberpipe/Kiberpipa A very cool and sophisticated hackerspace located in Ljubljana. One of the oldest hackerspaces there is and in need of young blood.
