A pretty regular work week in an increasingly irregular context.

This week I

  • Had work sessions on launching the open data platform for a province, ironing out details on synchronisation with internal infrastructure
  • Worked 2 days (Tue, Wed) from home at a slower than regular pace, because I was tired
  • Spent a day discussing public and civic tech with like minded ngo’s, companies, and government entities (more about that later)
  • Initiated our company’s switch to working remote only, because of Covid19

This week in ….141 BCE*

Emperor Wu of the Han dynasty assumed the throne. He ruled for 54 years, the longest period for the next 1800 years.
