An inspiring message from an inspiring scientist:

"Out in the forest you learn about the interconnection of all the forms of life, how every little species of animal and plant in the forest has a role to play."

Until recently I lived on the campus of the University of Twente, where my home was surrounded by trees. That was actually the reason why I chose :-) It was great to be able to start forest walks and runs from my doorstep!

A good day for getting inspiration! Listening to podcasts while running and then attending !

During my run I stumbled upon this beautiful house, and the owner took the time to share its history! The wood is from a farm that was built in 1746!

Now attending TEDxTwenteU! An amazing talk by Linda Radestad. And later Cristina Zaga, with "Social technology is not good, bad, or neutral, but it must be feminist and responsible".

Todays favourite podcast (Dutch):

Mooie nieuwe blog op!

"Wie pleit voor een internationale aanpak voor klimaatneutrale luchtvaart, is pas serieus te nemen nadat door hem eerst zelf een flinke stap in de richting van klimaatneutrale luchtvaart is gezet."

"Er is de komende decennia geen enkele valide reden voor groei in de luchtvaart. Niet in Nederland, dat de adviezen van de klimaatwetenschap ter harte neemt. De luchtvaart kan de komende decennia geen banenmotor zijn."

Mikko Hyppรถnen at the opening of the Twente University Centre for Cybersecurity Research (TUCCR):
"Data is the new uranium. Information can be explosive for decades"

is not only focusing on technical Cyber Security, but also on the social and political aspects. Good to hear! ;-)

Good to see ~250 people join this opening. I'm really excited to see Twente taking the initiative in the field of Cyber Security!

The Netherlands is the first EU-country to label the human rights violations to Uyghurs in China as genocide. That's about time. But still, it's an important first step in the process.

For completeness, Canada and the United States of America already put out similar statements before.

Je kunt weer stemmen op de Ingenieur van het Jaar, de jaarlijkse prijs van het Koninklijk Instituut Van Ingenieurs (KIVI)!

Je kunt de 3 korte filmpjes van de deelnemers hier vinden:

Abeje Y. Mersha bouwt bij Hogeschool Saxion aan onbemande robotsystemen. Ik hoop wel dat hij ook contact heeft met privacy-experts, want hoe zeer ik ook een toekomst zie met meer drones, ik denk dat we een samenleving met overal camera's niet moeten willen.

A fascinating webinar with Carissa Vรฉliz on her book "Privacy is Power":

An important quote:
"Privacy is collective. This myth about it being personal or individual is completely misleading"

This is why *we* should walk the talk, practice what we preach and lead by example.

The role for the legislator in a nutshell: 'People first'!
1) Ban trade in personal data
2) Implement a duty of care to whoever wants to collect or manage personal data.
3) Ban personalised content
