The vacation was great! Here's a picture of Marijke and me on the beach of St. Tropez.
It's always good to see from the web traffic logs that people visit my site for a reason that I hope they do. There's been searches on "beep", "ezgov" (my former employer), "human computer interaction", "definition of design management", as well as professional colleagues who've been mentioned or have commented, like "eric reiss" and "joshua".
But as always during holiday periods, my September 2004 posting Out-of-office message attracts the most attention simply because people seem to be looking for a standard text for that type of message. Maybe I should add a proper example to help the poor souls...
Anyway, I am back!
