2010 will bring new challenges! 
After almost 9 years as operational manager at Your Hosting and the founding and my 6 years as CEO at Realtime Register I'm moving forward in a slightly different direction. After long thoughts and conversation, I have decided it's best to make room for new people at the companies and for me to find new challenges and live my dream.

I'm making myself available for new initiatives and projects. I have had a lot of ideas and business plans, but to little time in the past years. Organizations with over 50 employees require a lot of time in management tasks, leaving less time for australianpills.com developing ideas into actual products/businesses. I'm now taking that time and do what I love to do and what I'm good at.

Follow me at twitter and connect with my on linkedin if you are interested in chatting, mailing or meeting up with me.

This site will become my professional blog. I will move to a new platform, most likely wordpress.

Today I've also made a new logo for my company , it is still a concept, remarks are very much welcome.

The dutch registry sidn will be introducing EPP in January 2010.

For that reason, they had planned several events to inform all of the (over 2000) registrars on this big change.

I was asked to do a presentation on our experiences on EPP at Realtime Register . I have done so in Eindhoven and Hoogeveen. Below some pictures and the presentation.

An article on the EPP Session's was also posted on the weblog of SIDN.

I talked to several dutch registrars and people at the dutch registry. Overall it was fun to do and the feedback was positive.

What I do best 
I found someone describing his own skill's like this, I can totally level with that:

My added value is to quickly develop a clear and pragmatic vision on a specific subject or on developments in information technology in general. Then communicate about that to non-ICT people (i.e. management, board members or professionals in other disciplines) avoiding ICT lingo but capturing the essence.

I often feel 'the translator' between my technical colleagues and 'regular' business professionals

Kings of Code 

We were sponsor of Kings of Code in Amsterdam (June 29-30).

It was a very interesting day with lots of good speakers. Especially the opening by Aral Balkan was superb.

Besides all kinds of sessions on new programming styles/languages/platforms, I found Steven Pemberton (W3C) interesting as well. Below a picture from his presentation, showing how fast our computer power has grown (twice as much power every 18 months).
