A lot of times, I get the question: Where should I host my website? To be honest with you, I really don't know. It all depends. And there are too many hosting companies out there to compare them all. You canl;t really go by these lists of "Ten best hosting companies", because I'm pretty sure the hosting company that pays the most is on the top of those lists.

In the past, I have pointed people to MijnDomein for .nl domains, they seem to do a decent job, for not much money.

For non-Dutch people, I've recommended FatCow hosting, but mainly because they are cheap. The quality of their support is not all that great, I think, but if your demands are low, go ahead and do it.

If you want my honest opinion, A Small Orange hosting is the absolute best I've ever tried. They have a very knowledgable crew of people, that speak English. Their servers are fast, and their 'Tiny' plan is enough for most small websites or blogs. You can also register .nl domains with them, and this blog is going to be moved to their servers soon (it's on MijnDomein now, but it's just too much hassle to pay their Dutch invoices with my American bankaccount).

Blue Hen Falls

A short downhill walk through the woods off of Boston Mills Road, in the beautiful Cuyahoga Valley National park in North East Ohio, is a gorgeous waterfall called Blue Hen Falls. Although not quite as spectacular as the nearby Brandywine Falls, that I wrote something about two years ago, it is definitely a place worth visiting.

In honor of Shark Week.

A few yers ago, I posted on Facebook "The most wonderful time of the year: Sharkweek!". Exactly one year later, guess what Discovery Channels advertisements for Shark Week were...bastards!

This was written for The Creative Impulse

Of course I should never have tweeted that I would write a blog post for anybody, about any subject.

Because within minutes, @CreativeImpulse asked me to write something about co-creation. Of course I was too proud to just say I wouldn’t do it, so here I am, writing about ‘co-creation’, something I’ve never thought about before, and a subject I would’ve never come up with myself. But here we go...

Witold Pilecki, the Auschwitz volunteer

Witold Pilecki

Nobody really likes war. Wars aren't really fun, people die and stuff. But there's one positive thing you can say about wars, and that is that a good old-fashioned war usually creates a couple of heroes.

One of the heroes of the Second World War (or World War 2) is definetly Witold Pilecki, who is (as far as I know) the only person ever that volunteered to be imprisoned in the Auschwitz concentration camp.
