security, coaching, facilitation, research, or systems architecture services

you have come to the right place!

Security consulting

Without a mandate for measuring and reporting actual improvements in security, attempts at improving security make absolutely no sense. These are some of my notes made while delivering ... not slick, not ready to go, just some notes.

Facilitation

Satir based organisational development aims to assist in clarifying choices and facilitating discovery of (alternative) decision pathways. Additional research and interviewing can be used, especially when people have doubts about already made choices.

Coaching

Satir training is next to non-existent in Europe, but we can dance, one on one. You choose the music and set direction, I mirror and make moves that may make you choose again, so you can improve your facilitation skills to become (even) more effective.

Current projects

Surveillance capitalism tracking exposed, a chilling exposé of the business model that underpins the digital world, specifically with regard to search engines, and exploring one of many alternatives, IPFS search, for its message of "equally privileged, equipotent participants in collaborative goals".

Reading them sometimes did the more dangeous trick of making fireworks go off in the privacy of the reader’s brain. Terry Pratchett

It tends to be that people are good at math and science or art and music, as if the two elements could not be placed together logically.

Cornelius Castoriadis

Languages and linguistics: A collective dream. More or less by agreement, we all cast spells on ourselves and on others. It matters what we write and say and how we write and say it!

The problem isn't the problem

Mental causation

Ever since Descartes advanced the notion of a radical substance dualism, there has been an ongoing argument against the notion that an immaterial mind cannot interact with a material body.
