I finished listening to an old audio book version of The Satanic Verses. Someone digitised it from a series of old cassette tapes and put it on the internet. I'm not sure if it's the voice of Salman Rushdie himself, whoever it is, I would like to thank him for this brilliant work

Dear English native speakers. Did I *watch* a show by Soul Glo yesterday? Of did I *see* a show by Soul Glo yesterday?

Today Manuel Matuzović and Eric Groot Kormelink talked to my students about design and accessibility. Manuel talked about the (hidden) UX of HTML, and Eric talked about the incredible projects he has done with our students over the years. Such an inspiring event. Lucky, lucky students!

Vanochtend heb ik genoten van twee fantastische lezingen tijdens de kickoff voor tweedejaars studenten van CMD Amsterdam. @astridpoot vertelde over haar onderzoek naar ethiek, en @manuelame over haar onderzoek naar de verhouding tussen mensen en de overheid.

@Mdubbelm Dat zou best wel eens kunnen. Maar ik ben vandaag naar de English Hatter gewandeld in Amsterdam en heb daar een lekker kleine paraply gekocht die in mijn rugtas past.

Olympus. The language where computation happens through the will of the gods


Waar koop je tegenwoordig een goede opvouwbare paraplu?

I switched to Nova as my code editor because it is very good and I prefer to use independent software.

@paulrobertlloyd that’s sad. We took the train from Hendaye to Lisbon a few years ago. Back then it was one of the few night trains left.

Tonight I'll be part of the Where Is Every Body program, organised by Hackers & Designers in Amsterdam. It is an event about "unpacking questions of inclusivity and accessibility in the hybrid cultural sector".You should all come over. I do not want to wonder where everybody is.
