Winning a Nokia phone is great, if it works…

I couldn’t believe my luck. I had a lot of expectation when visiting the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona this year. Winning a Nokia Lumia 800 wasn’t one of those expectations at all. It was great! It made me feel like this Windows Phone could be the best replacement for my old Sony Ericsson Xperia mini 10.

What is it I’d like to learn in 2012?

Editing my Curriculum Vitae

The incoming week I’ll be editing my CV and my portfolio. This is why my ‘Curriculum Vitae’ page is protected at the moment. If you still want to check out my curriculum vitae, just contact me and I’ll send it to you throughout mail. A small motivation is required though, just so I know why you’re interested in my experience.

Cheers!

Helping out old ladies in the public transport

I’ve got no idea whether this phenomenon differs between The Netherlands and for example, the United States. But because I find myself in the train and busses quiet often as a student, here’s what I do to make the trip comfortable for older passengers.

It’s always busy at the train station around half past eight in the morning. Everybody is lining up (although sometimes it moreover looks like people are preparing to enter a moshpit) to hop into the train. But quiet often, we seem to forget that old women and men, are also standing beside us.

3D-prototype printing is awesome!

Check out this video!

I’ve also read it’s already possible to print human tissue Quiet interesting, very handy for architects and designers from the automobile or jewelry industry.

I think we can expect a whole lot more to come from these ‘Sci-Fi-ish’ printers.

What could (or should there) be a better name for social media?

A question I just posted on Quora.

After a discussion that followed on a Dutch blogpost of mine, saying that I’ve decided not to call ‘it’ social or new media, I was wondering what you guys think, that could be a better name for this somewhat ‘hyped’ phenomenon. For in the eyes of people unknown with it, these terms are too vague and most certainly not associated with Quora, Fora, Interactive blogs and so on… I hope this question is detailed enough, if not, feel free to suggest or edit the question. Comments arw most welcome. Cheers!

Egypt, live 12 hour media monitoring by one single blogger

Today the Egyptian government stands face to face with hundreds of thousands civilians. It is very presumable that this will become an historic event, if it isn’t already, for the country which is famous for its rich and poor history and her complex international diplomatic relationships. But this day might also contain a message for the world, which is bigger then any currently published WikiLeak document did.
