F - Ambitions and preferences

    #  What do I want next year?
    o  Getting certified to consolidate and advance my Unix/Linux knowledge
       and experience, and be better equipped to manage outsourced projects:
       - RHCE (Red Hat Certified Engineer) and then perhaps RHCA (Architect).
       - Requirements Engineering.
    #  What do I want in the coming 4 years?
    o  I would like to stay involved with Quality Management.
       During the ISO 9001:2008 certification of the KNMI, sector IT
       Infrastructure, I was a project member and have conducted an internal
       Verifying that procedures and instructions (from ISO, Itil or otherwise)
       really help administrators and customers in improving their work and
       product, respectively, is very inspiring to me.
    o  On the other hand I am considering to pick up my old craft, programming.
       If that is in the technical-scientific field or data mining, e.g. with
       a tool like QlikView, or something else, is not that important to me:
       as long as it produces user-friendly software that concretely addresses
       customers' needs.
    o  To summarize: be an optimal partner for customers thanks to advanced
       knowledge of technical matters in order to make my work really matter.

G - Hobbies

    o  Watching films, especially arthouse, and video editing myself
    o  Nature hiking with my wife and with my friends, home or abroad
    o  Listening to music: concerts or at home, radio (top 2000!) and podcasts
    o  Reading: popular science and sci-fi
