EPP @ SIDN 
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).

TRAFFIC ccTLD auction, Next Lot Peter! 
I was invited by Paul Jansen of SIDN to visit Rick Latona's T.R.A.F.F.I.C. conference (1-4 June, Amsterdam).

I had some nice conversation's with Kellie Peterson of Name.com, Donny Simonton of parked.com, Sander Cruiming of XXLWebhosting, Hans van de Streek and Yom Schutte of Hostnet.nl, David Clements President of Rick Latona Auctions , Hennie Groot Lipman , supposed to be the biggest domainer in The Netherlands and Matt Lowery , the world livestock champion .

Eventually I ended up on stage pronouncing all cc-tld domain names at the first TRAFFIC ccTLD auction . I was up there for 3 hours. It was a very interesting experience to see the domainers bidding from the 'other side'. Check out this image (source: dnjournal.com )



Thanks go out to all people I spoke to and hope to keep in touch.
