He became known to the broader public through his podcast “Logbuch: Netzpolitik”, which he published together with Tim Pritlove. Linus used to write regularly, now he writes sporadically for the blog

His core topic is IT security and experts like him are desperately sought after by government institutions as well as private companies, as the increasing digitalization also reveals ever greater security problems.

His knowledge of bits and bytes makes Linus a sought-after consultant and speaker. Linus clearly shows that the topics of artificial intelligence, risk management systems, and questions of liability on the internet as well as digital maturity, sovereignty and the social power of individual large internet companies concern us all, and he presents stirring solutions. He sensitizes us to the security gaps and shakes us out of our digital slumber.
