Art Trouvรฉ. Found art. What a great way to describe great pics you find online. This is a London car park in 1963. Or crowdsourced streetart to make a tree. Not quite sure.

Utrecht gets a new central railway station and shopping mall. I drive by every day to get to work and I have to say I am really impressed how it's gonna turn look.

For all you Dutch Mastodonians looking for something to read, here's my weekly Leesmap with 5 links. And some Mariah Carey. because December is almost here.

What are your thoughts on webhosting? I currently host my blog at Github Pages which is quite alright. I've had some experiences with webhosting and VPS, somehow it can get a hassle with those. Hosting at Amazon? What are your ideas?

So hereโ€™s the problem with switching social networks in a nutshell. Where are my friends and why should I be the first one to take the leap?

@paulfree14 @Gargron BTW I'd like to say that our Chinese mastodon community ( is also functioning perfectly and mainly focus on Chinese speaking users, please feel free to register.


I use the Day One app on and off as a private journal. Keeping record of nice photos, moments, but also websites and articles.

Day One has a great "on this day" feature where it gives you entries of this day on previous years. This morning I got a look back on this beautiful art/community project in New Orleans: Before I Die

She covered the crumbling house with chalkboard paint and stenciled it with the prompt, โ€œBefore I die I want to _____.โ€

dead simple idea: just have new users follow the local instance admins, ala facebook/myspace/tumblr's early onboarding strategies

it's not perfect, but it's better then looking at an empty timeline

Wrote some Dutch words on the new update of Mastodon. Most excited about embeds. Mostly because I don't understand the technical part of the rest of it...

I recently wrote down some thoughts if and how an algorithm could predict a setlist for a concert. I'd love to hear your thoughts! (And claps...)

In response to twitter's brand guidelines: mastodon's elephant friend is in fact an elephant (fluffy), and also a friend. you can draw him with other elephants, he likes company

On this whole Google Anti-Diversity Manifesto that was written... Motherboard reports it "was shared on a company mailing list" even Google still has internal mailing lists. I assume it's e-mail. Not on paper ;-)
There's still hope for e-mail!

Getting ready for work after a 3 week holiday. Lots of cool stuff coming up at Triggi. New devices added, new services supported, new features featured.
Oh and some new designs designed. And copy copied. Maybe even part of a new site coded.
But first, coffee.

Free drink for mastedonians at #sha2017 find me at sha, show me your already existing #mastodon account and I'll get you a drink when not on duty. See if I go bankrupt :)

Getting ready for a holiday with the family. Off to Italy for some much needed downtime. Preparation with kids age 5 and 10 is always a bit stressfull but we're getting there.

1993: on the internet nobody knows you're a dog
2017: the NSA is confused and concerned by your continued very public claims of being a dog

DRM is a huge threat agains your security and freedom. Now it seems like it'll become a webstandard from W3C. Madness!
