Since this is my first post, I thought I’d let you know what kind of information you can expect on Dutch Delight.

Some of it will deal with (information) technology –hardly surprising since I’ve worked in IT for more than 25 years. (Hmm… That kinda shows my age, doesn’t it?)

On other occasions, I will write about news events or political developments that interest me.

And occasionally I will post more personal stuff, little things that irritate or excite me.

Since I am Dutch, and have lived in the Netherlands for most of my life (apart from a three-year stint in the U.S. while I did a dual master’s degree program at The Fletcher School and The Tuck School), I may sometimes have “a Dutch perspective” on things.

E.g., if I should ever talk about “football”, I probably mean “soccer” rather than the NFL (not that I will talk about football very often), and I may sometimes use a Dutch website or two to illustrate a point –I hope that’s OK.

A long, long time ago I read a few e-books by Chris Pirillo about this new “Internet” thing… Quite a lot has happened since, and I’m absolutely delighted that Chris has now given me the opportunity to express myself on Lockergnome!  🙂
