  4. Fon Wifi at home

    Published on

    I had no Wifi in my house. No problem if you only use one desktop pc. From time to time I bring my work laptop to home. My Wii has built in Wifi, Ethernet is optional. So it was time to buy a Wifi router. Johan was frequently talking about Fon and...

  5. Looking back at the Cocoon GetTogether

    Published on

    Published on

    Cocoon 2.2 is about to be released and I’m going to try to build a website with it. It shouldn’t be rocket science, but I’m curious to see how hard or how easy it will be. At Hippo we have spent a lot of effort in creating a Project Wizard so if I...

    It’s official now. The Cocoon GetTogether (GT) will take place on October 3-5 in Rome. Last year I attended my first GT in Amsterdam, the city I sort of grew up. I’ve been in Rome before and the city is worth seeing again. The first day is for the...
