Aaaaand, I'm 50 now. So I went for a long cycle ride in the midsummer sun :)

Who is up for cycling to #cccamp2019 ?
I'm searching for co-bikers to do (a bit of) the way together.

Through Germany via EuroVelo2

And then by chance I met the person who designed the Critical Mass Karlsruhe's logo, Steffen. I commented on his cool t-shirt, got talking and so on :).

Such a nice way to see a city - joining the monthly Critical Mass cycle ride :).

Am in Karlsruhe for a CCC gathering, taking place in an art&media centre. Next to some of the artworks there's a flyer, meant for the techies in the area. "Please don't hack it." This piece is made of PVC and air, two huge pillows. Am trying to imagine the hack :).

We shut down our server "jean", joining the world wide Fridays For Future strike. ie Not using any electricity for an hour. The Systerserver hosts websites, a gitlab instance and a mailing list.

I made a mistake, it's been 33 years since the disaster. I trusted what I heard, and neglected to verify :).

I'm in Kiev for a project and followed others to the Ukrainian National Chernobyl Museum today. Only later did we understand why we got in for free - it's exactly 31 years ago that there was a steam explosion in reactor no. 4, resulting in the fire that lasted for 9 days, bellowing radioactive debris into the atmosphere.

Spent last week in Barcelona at the InfraCon meeting organised by eQualitie and Pangea. Here I am together with Adolfo from the Association for Progressive Communication, Maddish from Maadix and linuxawy. All good.

In rain and cold an estimated 40 000 people participated in the klimaatmars in Amsterdam today. I made a board inspired by Douglas Adams, author of the "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", in which planet Earth gets demolished to make way for a space highway. I like this sentence a) because I love potatoes, and b) because i.m.o. it reflects the idea of looking for more radical solutions to the complex issues we're facing.

In the mini replica of Café 't Mandje in the Amsterdam Museum. Bet van Beeren was the "stoere vrouw" proprietor of this famous bar.

At the Femmes Fatales exhibition with my friend Ka, in The Hague.

One of the pieces at the opening New Feminity # 3, Curated by Girls exhibition.
