I have been following and reporting about trends and developments in the free and open domain for some time now, via various outlets. Writing about news issues every day (as I did for the Dutch website Livre) left me without the time to take a look at developments from a broader perspective. In 2009 I experimented with (and worked for) various methods of reporting about news issues. Now I’ll use the combined experience to start a new newsletter on ‘open’ in the widest sense of the word. Open Trends will be a downloadable PDF in Dutch. Later this week the first issues should become available. For now there is the logo, in concept that is.
