Update

I thought I’d post a small update on what’s been happening, and what’s in store. Guest blogs It may seem like I haven’t been blogging a lot lately, but that’s not exactly true. I just haven’t been doing all of it here, on Bytes & Bikes. I’ve written two guest blogs on other websites, that you’re more…

The Start of the DiXiT Postdoc

Or: Wout går till Sverige Two days ago, Annelies and I packed our bags, boarded a plane, and set off to Sweden. To Gothenburg Landvetter, to be exact — departing in Deurne instead of Zaventem due to the tragic events that took place in Brussels only last week. Still, we try to move on, and as it was such a beautiful…

CfP Flyer DiXiT3 + ESTS 2016

In Cologne, the DiXiT 2 conference is drawing to a close, as the last half day of talks has started. It’s been a great conference so far, with a rich social programme and a series of very interesting talks. And I’m especially looking forward to Arianna Ciula’s closing keynote on Modelling Textuality. Something to look…

MTB – 27 Feb 2016

First ride again in almost two months. So much for that good start of the year! Bad weather and busy schedules — no excuse, I know. Since I was using my MTB again, I decided to take a detour on the way to (and back from) Mechelen, across a patch of MTB terrain I’ve had my…

CfP: DHBenelux 2016

On June 9-10, the CVCE and the University of Luxembourg will host the third edition of DHBenelux, a young international initiative that strives to further the dissemination of, and collaboration between Digital Humanities projects in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg.  Yesterday, the last week of the CfP started, as the deadline expires this Sunday, so don’t miss your chance…

MTB – 8 Jan 2016

I started off the year with such a good start, and the weather was so nice, that I didn’t want to do less than last week. So when I got to Duffel, this time without getting lost, I decided to take a left and cycle towards Mechelen before going home. I’m glad I did it, but…

Peugeot – 26 Dec 2015

Not a great time, but not a bad one either, considering that my previous serious racing ride (not counting a slow phone run in wet weather and civilian clothes) dates back from early October. The weather was great, but there was a strong wind that stubbornly seemed to challenge me in both directions for some reason. Still,…

Peugeot – 25 Nov 2015

My bike was finally ready (two broken spokes in the back wheel), and I needed to get a new battery for a phone, so I decided to ride my bike from the bike shop to the phone repair guy, and home again. I’m glad I have my bike back, but this wasn’t the weather for…

MTB – 8 Nov 2015

Nice ride, enjoying a fine autumn day. By myself this time because Annelies had gone horseback riding. The ‘Edegemse Bergen’ is a nice place for a MTB ride, with some great routes. The only problem is that because the soil is mostly sand, the terrain is terrible when it’s been wet — which of course damages…
