Today I had a bit of time to try running Mastodon on Raspberry Pi again. Last week I got stuck as some of the mentioned dependencies in the Mastodon installation guide could not be installed. As the step where I got stuck deals with a different Linux version, I tried simply skipping to the next […]
10 impossibilities of tracking impact of #opendata https://www.zylstra.org/blog/2018/09/10-impossibilities-of-measuring-open-data-impact/ #opengov #iodc18
For the UNDP in Serbia, I made an overview of existing studies into the impact of open data. I’ve done something similar for the Flemish government a few years ago, so I had a good list of studies to start from, which I updated with more recent publications. The UNDP also asked me to suggest […]
A pizza delivery car with a big clock running down from 29:00 minutes to 0, like a Deliverator. On the streets of Novi Sad. Very Snow Crash.

Written by Clare Dwyer Hogg and performed by Stephen Rea, it is a beautiful way to bring across the importance of the Irish border issue in the […]
For a few months I used an additional category ‘microblog’ to share small status updates on this blog, next to having ‘front page’ blog posts and ‘Day to day’ timeline like postings. Those microblog postings were als shared to micro.blog/ton The separation felt a little contrived, as I mention in a comment discussing it. So […]
I actually built a little toy service (that I will also eventually open source) which converts any RSS feed to an ActivityPub actor that you can subscribe to in Mastodon (or any other AP-compatible client).

"De Noorse politie heeft spullen gevonden van de vermiste Nederlander Arjen Kamphuis. Volgens de Noorse omroep NRK ontving de politie een melding van een visser, die voor de kust bij de berg Kvænflåget - tussen de plaatsen Fauske en Rognan in het noorden van het land - voorwerpen zag drijven.
De politie wil niet ingaan op wat er precies is gev…"
