Leaving traces

So many things to do in so little time. Perhaps we should just enjoy, and keep our informational footprint as small as possible. But like all others that have access, I cannot resist the temptation to publish on the web.

At this site I want to leave some traces that are worth their while. To decide if they are is of course entirely up to you. I have used a few main themes: my current work in IT, my scientific work in logical-semantics and philosophy, a pilgrimage that I joined some years ago, my poems.

The site is partly in Dutch.
