I've studied history and work with computers... an all too familiar career pattern in the humanities nowadays.
After graduating in social and economic history I temped in various companies, from a big advertising agency to a company renting audiovisual equipment. I worked with people, with computers and with my hands, and I've come to the conclusion that combining all these is the most fun to do.
I currently work in the library of the University of Amsterdam as a projectleader. One of the projects I'm involved in is Triple-L: Live events als Leerobjecten voor Leeromgevingen (live events als learning objects for electronic learning environments aka ELO).
As a leftover from my freelance days, I retained a few clients that
are fun and interesting to work with, mostly for creative professionals.
For them, I do some custom database design and the occasional website.
At the moment, I am not taking on new clients.
(april 2006) Update: yes, I am taking on new jobs and clients, as long as they're fun!
Recent work: Energy Chair Massage, Amsterdam: new photograpy/artwork; fully accessible standards-compliant and searchengine- optimized website; flyer.
I liked this page from Fred Brooks' 1975 classic The Mythical Man-Month on programming, the joys of the craft, so much that I typed it all in. Enjoy!
