Hello and welcome! [I'm Ben](https://bendegens.nl/) and you've just entered my digital space. Over here, I share thoughts, insights, notes, and stories. You can think of this place as a big, connected notebook. This is a bit of an experiment, so please browse at your own risk 😉. **Disclaimer**: Content and features may change over time - I'm still in the process of migrating some notes. Did you spot anything wrong or want to know more? I warmly welcome all feedback. Feel free to reach out to me [right here](mailto:[email protected]). I'm currently in the process of setting things up, there can be some broken links and things yet to fill in. ## How to read? There are multiple ways to navigate this space.
