Photographer and still It dude. I live in Heiloo, 30 km north-north-west of Amsterdam.

I just finished reading The E-Myth Revisited by Michael Gerber (the importance of systematic operation) and picked up Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver.

De nieuwe Haruki Murakami (in Dutch, just released) is the next on the stack.

Just came back from a holiday trip through Scotland. That was awesome.

Sometimes, I do not Photograph. But normally, I take pictures of what is in front of me, and I get in front of Punk bands for that, too.

In 2023 I traveled through New Zealand and Japan. I want to go back, especially to Japan.

I love doing things myself and being independent. I am very sceptical about Big Tech. I follow what Cory Doctorow, Waag, and Bits of Freedom have to say on this topic with great interest.

Personal non-commercial websites are an antidote to the spammy corporate web.

I think the future of the internet is the curated internet. Yahoo started as a directory and got killed by Google. Google search, Facebook, and Instagram, these “platforms” have killed themselves. For non-commercial, neutral content, we move back to a directory-like internet. Curation is a task for all of us.
