A pretty regular week, with lots of sunshine which was pleasant and energising.

This week I

  • Did some follow-up on last week’s sessions with the company’s team
  • Wrote an overview of EU regulation developments for a client’s oversight board
  • Prepared and facilitated a session on EU data regulation with the internal network of data professionals of the Ministry for the Interior
  • Took a walk with E to enjoy the sun
  • Had the weekly client meetings
  • Decided on two new hires for our team
  • Discussed the impact of EU data regulation w.r.t. to data on the topic of nitrate emissions/deposition, for the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate
  • Had a board meeting with Open Nederland, the Dutch Creative Commons chapter
  • Was a guest in a podcast on digital fitness, in which I talked about personal knowledge management and agency over your own tools as a knowledge worker
  • Met up with J as he was in town for a conference. A pleasant and unplanned dinner in town, together with E and Y, having wide ranging conversations over nice food
  • Strolled around town in conversation with Doug Belshaw, about data, open badges, founding and operating co-ops, life after Brexit, art and more
  • Took Y to her weekly swimming lesson. She’s making good progress.
  • Spent Sunday afternoon with a large group of my old fraternity’s friends and their families. A yearly tradition twice interrupted by the pandemic and now restarted. It was good to see everyone again, and catch up.
