Its been a while since I last wrote here. I started a new job with NLnet Labs and it just took all my energy. Besides plog and Safari do not really work together and Ecto does not allow picture uploads so at times its just to much hassle.
Anyway things are settling a bit. I’ve finished my DNSSEC deployment project at the NCC, its in its final stages and it won’t be long before secure delegations will be offered. As for deployment taking up on a more global scale; I am not willing to take bets.
While writing this I am watching Top Gear. They are presenting the new Citroen C6 Oh-la-la…. I can’t wait until that machine hits the road and we get to see it life. Although I am not a car person but I do wonder what cars can get the ‘classic’ status of the Citroen DS, 2CV and the Volkwagen Beatle. I guess we have to wait about 20 years to have the authoritative answer.
During the IETF in Paris I did some shopping and heard some classic New Wave and Punk songs in a Bossa Nova setting. I asked the guy behind the counter. It was Nouvelle Vague. So off to FNAC I was. (FNAC is this really cool music, movie and media chain). In FNAC “Nouvelle Vague” was sitting next to a set of headphones which played “Sufjan Stevens”;
Sufjan Stevens’s Illinoise is one of the best musical purchases I made this year. Its an incredible mix of styles. His website is pretty cool too. If I’d take a bet on Sufjan’s record collection I would say it contains Stever Reich, Frank Zappa, The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, and a nice bluegrass collection.
I did listen to another but that was not as catching nor accessible as Illinoise. I’m sure I’ll buy more of this fellow.
