A picture of me.
This is the personal web site of John Ankarström. Here are a few
facts about me:
- I come from Sweden.
- I have a Bachelor of Arts degree with Russian as the main

- Apart from Swedish, English and Russian, I know German, some
Dutch, a little Indonesian and a little (but not very much) Japanese.

less regularly since 2008.

website relates to my technological interests.

Church. I rarely attend, but I do believe in a reality (and life) beyond the
material world and in the non-contingent existence of truth, goodness
have played the piano since about the age of six, at times under a

guitar for a long time casually. I also listen to a lot of music,
mostly but not limited to music from the latter half of the 20th
