I'm not sure about the relevance, but anyway: I did several things in my life, from software development to international trade to technical management; at the moment I'm trying to grow a software start-up developing products for secure messaging (based on cryptographic technology). That dovetails with my personal interests in e-cash matters (hence the connection to Hayek's "Denationalization of Money" etc.) and privacy issues.

Talking about which: does anybody on this list have opinions about the recent review of the Wassenaar Arrangement, export controls on cryptography etc.?
