Today marks the 5th anniversary working for We4IT. This doesn’t seem to be a long time but, holy smokes, what happened during this period is freaking awesome.

Another delay resulted in the need to change the train at Amsterdam Central. Anyway, I didn't make it in time, I was about 1 hour late. But why I am her [...] 

Desperately seeking... #engageug #openntf #dominoforever

While being at Engage these days, I had the chance to ask many people in person if they knew, where in the world our European OpenNTF rollup-banner might be. The last time I had it was when I ordered it and brought it to Brussels last year. Then I sent it to Munich to the Social Connections event. Afterwards we lost track. I talked to people from Switzerland, who presumably took it with them. T [...]
