Me: I'm Koen Holtman, and have all the usual attributes of a computer
geek, except that I currently live in Europe without a TV on which to
watch star trek. In my spare time I do Linux and Web stuff, most notably
I was in the IETF standards effort for HTTP/1.1. In my day job I'm a
Ph. D. student, doing research on extremely large databases at CERN. By
now I think that the web is a small database.

I like clean and simple software design, but I like working systems even
more. As a result, I will gladly commit the most atrocious hacks if this
is needed to get things done.
