Very happy to be working together with the Dutch Design Foundation again for the 2020 Dutch Design Week. This time round I’m writing five articles on the subject of privacy. Here’s the first. Worth a read!
Like many things these days, being a football reporter for UEFA.com is a strange experience. No supporters in the stadium or in the streets, just a handful of journalists, and post-match interviews conducted outside. This is me with Liverpool’s Fabinho after the English side’s 1-0 victory over Ajax in Amsterdam.
How. Not a particularly Scottish word you may think, which is true, although it is used in Scotland in a way that I haven’t come across anywhere else: instead of why. So when someone says I’m going home now, it’s quite common for someone else to reply How? The correct answer is not By bike or On foot, but rather Because I’m knackered. Similarly, the question How no? actually means 'why not?' Why we don’t just say Why not? is beyond me, but I guess it’s yet another reason why we are such a wonderful bunch of people.
I do a lot more than just writing. For example, I interview many of the world's top footballers (and a few duffers as well, when I think about it) in the Netherlands and beyond.
