Still don’t know what I was waitin’ forAnd my time was runnin’ wildA million dead end streets andEvery time I thought I’d got it madeIt seemed the taste was not so sweet
Changes, David Bowie

There comes a time in many people’s lives, where there’s a shift. Mine came at 50 years old or, I could also say, has been 15 years in the making. I’m talking about a shift in my professional life. After 25 years in the IT sector (half my life), I made the move to Arts and Culture. Granted that I’ve been involved in a cultural project since 2006, and that I’ve been collaborating with a cultural institution since 2019. But my main income and activity has always been in IT. Well, yesterday I said farewell to my main day job, and today started a new challenging project in the arts sector, that I’ll write about soon.

There will be time to talk in great detail about my adventures in culture, and in other related fields. I’m in the process of organizing my new life, having meetings and filling in my schedule. Soon, when things settle, I’ll come back to these topics. I’ll be using this site to share my travels (there will be travelling) and issues I find interesting.

As the tagline on this site says, I’ll keep moving “Somewhere at the intersection of Digital and Culture”. These two areas fascinate me. Now the field is tipping towards the cultural sector, but I’ll always keep an eye open for whats new in tech, and try to combine both worlds.

I’ll end with the quote that signs my emails, by Oscar Wilde: We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
