Play

For most of the fun stuff, check out the labs section.

In early 2011 I have developed SnelTrein (blog, market) for the Android platform. This app allows you to find train connections with the least amount of effort from the user. It is currently free of charge.

I try to read as much as possible and I have hundreds of books, some of which I occasionaly lend out to friends. To keep track of the books I own and the books that have been lent out, I developed My Library, an app on Facebook.

Being a huge fan of IBM and Lenovo ThinkPads and having a cheap supply of old, second hand models through Marktplaats.nl, I have managed to acquire the following models: 700C (x2, the c stands for Color, a novelty in 1992), 701CS (x2, butterfly keyboard), 570, 570e, 600, 760CD, R60, X200s, T400. The 600 is my favourite, it feels incredibly robust and offered great performance for the time. Of these models, I've only used the R60 and T400 on a day-to-day basis. If you would like any information on any of these models, let me know.

I enjoy Leonard Cohen's music and G.K. Chesterton's books, among others.

Politics

As a member of the CDA (Christian Democrats), a centre- party in the Netherlands, I try to balance solidarity with common sense. On the whole, the right lacks the first, the left the second. My focus is currently on the relation between Islam and democracy.

Social

Over the years my reluctant attitude towards social media was succumbed by the perseverance of friends on Hyves, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. However, I highly prefer talking to people face-to-face and hence I scarcely use social media, except for Twitter. Of course you can reach me by Email: jt.waleson@gmail.com.
