A stickler for truth and a believer in better, Gerben dabbles in EU policy making in Brussels, where he primarily advocates for interoperable, secure, decentralised technology. He contributes to Redecentralize since 2019, launched the Redecentralize Digest and maintains the website.Gerben is a full-stack technologist, swaying from soldering transistors to training neural networks, with a particular affection for creating memex-ish ‘tools for the mind’. On a quiet day you can find him reading philosophy or walking in the forest.
