Unfortunately my time at the Scheepvaartmuseum has been cut in half. The alternative however is not that bad. After three years of looking to a blind wall inside the Muziekgebouw, I am finally in an office looking out. It is the IJ that I see, with ships and industry alongside it. So far we have set up some groups on social networks that feel like a natural extension of our domain: Last.fm, Facebook and flickr. MySpace and YouTube will follow soon, and a blog is in the making. In the mean time you can check this festival we can all look forward to.
