The b(ack)log

My name is Dirk and this is my blog, erm website.

This is what I look like.

Have a close look, you never know who you might run in to.

Sometimes I take myself seriously, other times I put things like this on the front page of my website.

At heart I’m a technologist and I believe technology has the potential to change the world for the better - if we apply it carefully to the right problems.

If you have one of those right problems and some money, get in touch and I’ll be happy to do the applying, take the money and make the world a better place.

I write software for the web using HTLM 5, JavaScript & Python. Have a look at the projects page to see some things I’ve worked on.

I also have a life. I like to read, walk around for extended periods of time with a heavy bag, dirty clothes and without enough food or wine and make timelapses with an old camera.

Find me on twitter, GitHub or contact me via email -, just remove all the “X”s. If you send me a pull request you’ll have my full attention.
