Into Networked Agency, which requires not just the web but also other technologies and methods to have much lower thresholds and be outside of silos, so that my neighbours can use it easily, and as a group find agency through it.

Online daily since 1989, blogging since 2002 at (had a personal site before that for some years, which webarchive traces back to early 1998)

I co-organised IndieWebCamp Utrecht 2019 and IndieWebCamp Amsterdam 2019 with Frank Meeuwsen, and attended Indie Web Camp Nuremberg 2018.

Current efforts:

  • Trying to change the set-up of my site to not be a blog, nor be a wiki, but some intermediate form.
  • Bringing home slides (I deleted my own and my company's Slideshare and Scribd accounts).
  • Thinking about an online IndieWebCamp Netherlands in late 2021.
