My homepage. After being on the Internet for a good decade (and good it was),
I decided to get me one too. It does sound really circa 1996, but I wanted a
place to put projects online, projects that did not have a place on one of
the dedicated websites I worked on.
So here it is. About me: I'm Douwe Osinga, born in 1968 in Haarlem. I used to run my
own company, Oberon Medialab, before
Google hired me. I now live in Zurich
where I work for Google's European Engineering office, though I am currently
on assignment in India, Hyderabad.
I like technology as a way to make ideas visible.
Nietzsche wanted to be the philosopher with the hammer, why not think with
I sometimes get questions how my name is pronounced: Listen here..
Of course anything I publish here is just for the fun of it and doesn't necesarily reflect
the opinions of Google, World66 or anyone really. Sometimes not even me.
