The Journey Begins

DSC00028

I’ve added a special page, filled with nostalgic pictures of different technology events that I have paricipated in. Due to the fact that digital cameras were not very good or reliable back in the days, I’m missing some really old pictures of the Telecom Geneve events, and some Cebit events… The pictures may show up on some CD-ROM’s that probably is stored in a cardbox somewhere…

See my mania-nostagia here…
