Good day!

I am Diederick de Vries, I live in Amsterdam, and this is my personal blog.

I have a chronic insomnia, a slight tinnitus that hinders my sleep and an odd problem where when I’m tired, I cannot find some of the most normal and everyday words.

For me, writing is meditation. When I write, I often find that I am able to find the words that I cannot find in a normal human to human conversation. It doesn’t matter what I write.

I love technology, mostly anachronistically. A good friend of me told me once I’m always staying ahead of retro trends. I thought that was funny. I also care about privacy and sustainability.

You’ll find no doom-scrolling here. If you’ve reached the end of what you’re reading, you need to go back up and select something else.

I also write here in Dutch about sustainability.
