What will I do when a pandemic happens and I can't call doctors?
I will call teachers and ask them to explain each part of the plan and neccesary information that doctors provide us with. This will help people become aware of the facts of the situation. I will call Logistics Managers to make sure resources go to the right place at the right time. I will call political leaders to ask them to advise people to stay calm.
I will call a lot of people and I will help them connect… Continue

When I'm 100 years old, I will leave the world with a message.
A message of what the world is like at that moment, so others will know this when they find this information in the even more distant future. It will contain the following information:
Clouds in the sky are created by evaporated water from the oceans. They are moved by the wind and they rain down the water in the mountains. This rain gets in the river where it flows towards the ocean. When the river meets the… Continue

Ushahidi could help to map bankruptcy in the Netherlands. This could help the huge group of people that doesn't have a job anymore because their company doesn't exist anymore. Especially the (not director/management) employees could get a job more easily if companies use Ushahidi to contact potential employees (because they had nothing to do with the bankruptcy, that was just bad management or a sudden bad economic situation in the country).
Ushahidi could have Human Resources… Continue

Yesterday I received accommodation for a discussion I held with different professionals to test my thesis (school). The discussion was at a beautiful workplace and everyone got drinks during the discussion and a goody bag at the end. In exchange they got free publicity. I'm going to write an article on my thesis and I will also mention that the discussion held place at their workplace. We didn't even discuss finances, we just both helped each other and called it even. I think this is a much… Continue

It will be a surprising sight to see a river in the Sahara (big enough to locate on Google Earth), but this is exactly what will be on the news in 2020. That's because it's World Water Day.
A humanmade "river" will be created that consists entirely out of clean water (in celebration of inventions like the Lifesaver Bottle (www.… Continue

It is February 3th in 2020 and every light in the world is now a LED light. This is why from now on February 3th is called LED Day. It's a day to think about energy efficiency and to celebrate environmental knowledge. This will be celebrated with big parties, that are all lighted by LED light.

Ten years from now I will have my own company and housing. It will be a rather big restaurant/conference building and I will have a normal size room above it (the rest is all ground floor) to sleep in with my girlfriend. It will be located in the Netherlands (not in the center of a big city, but not in the middle of nowhere either). I will be considered an expert in different fields of expertise and I will give presentations about those disciplines.
I will already be working on… Continue
