This is my first blog post, both testing how it works and to explain shortly what I plan to blog about. This is mostly a professional blog, which means writing about subjects like identity, trust, privacy, middleware and mobile applications. I considered mixing Dutch and English, or to have two blogs, but decide to stick to English to keep things simple. I’ll cross post some/most to my (main) employer’s website (Novay). A big reason not to only post at my employer’s site is that interacting with readers is easier at this wordpress.com hosted blog.
