magazine publications

Throughout the years I’ve written articles for magazine and newspapers such as Bright, P/f, Glamsterdam, WinQ, Living Media, Sprout, MacWorld, Net Magazine, Publish, Power Unlimited, Wired, Mitsubishi Magazine, Volkskrant, Readers Digest and more. I also wrote ‘copywrite’ for companies such as Friesland Foods, Pioneer, Vodafone, Sogeo and Jumbo. Here you’ll find a sample of mostly ‘uncut’ articles published over the years.

netmagNet Magazine

Not long after the birth of the web, the IDG publication ‘Net Magazine’ saw the light. The magazine focused on the emerging Internet and its users. For several years I wrote extensively for the magazine. My favorite however, was the ‘Net Niet’ column about the fictional character Max Apple who constantly dealt with the trials and tribulations of the new web phenomena and its early tech such as Netscape plugins, Gopher and dial-up modems .

In the early 90’s I wrote several articles for Readers Digest. These are the ‘uncut’ versions. Prepare for a long but fascinating read…

For one of the larger Dutch newspaper I wrote an article about how International criminal enterprises dumped millions of pounds of illegally caught salmon onto the European market. The salmon, caught with the notorious driftnets, at the time continued to show up on the Dutch, French and British markets, the Dutch buying the bulk.  The Dutch importers changed their policy after the article raised questions. It was my first article ever published by a ‘big one’.

For five years in the eighties I was a commercial fisherman in Alaska. I wrote a raw ‘day in the life’ story about my experience onboard of the fishingtrawler AK One.
