A pretty regular week in which I

  • Wrote a project proposal for a follow-up with an existing client
  • Attended a session with 60 or so entrepreneurs that are also Dutch Mensa members
  • Had a full day looking at the data governance aspects of a office space monitor, which data a government body should require during procurement concerning circular economy, and mapped out data streams around current catering services of a client, also concerning circular economy
  • Planned next steps for a client’s data publishing platform and publishing process
  • Had a team meeting and client meeting on our progress in the European research for the high value data sets that will be part of the upcoming European open data legislation
  • Had my monthly catch-up with the director of the Open State Foundation (where I’m a volunteer board member)

  • Had to confront the ‘artistic expression‘ of Y and her friend

This week in …… 1883*

Lewis Waterman invented the three fissure feed for fountain pens this week in 1883. And went on to create the Waterman fountain pen company.
