02 Sep 2004 | Developing a development portal

The Jesse residence

Spent the evening together with Jesse and Sander. Sander's working for XminY, a development aid organization from the Netherlands. They plan on building a development portal with reviews of development related books and articles.

We met at Jesse's house, in Bloemendaal, of all places. Walking from Bloemendaal station to his house, I came accross two young guys working on their car, a convertable. It was a rather posh neighbourhood, so allthough they looked like they had just returned from a good night of clubbing, they still had to greet me as if I was their next door neighboor.
