• The idea of the Dutch prime minister visiting a school where he and the children color the Dutch flag is I think unthinkable as a PR move. (Please nobody prove me wrong on this with a press photo…)

  • Ok Trump can’t draw the American Flag, haha. I’ll grant that their flag is more complicated than the Dutch so it’s easy for me to mock. But worse is this patriotistic setting. I know it’s staged but still, the idea of giving these children a flag to color is really so 🤦‍♂️

  • Can anyone recommend an informal meeting space for just 5 people in the centre of The Hague? All I see are bland hotel meeting rooms. I’d like something a bit less boring

  • I wanted to cut back on my Twitter use for various reasons so I removed Tweetbot and installed the official app, assuming I’d hate it and would thus waste less time on it. That’s basically what happened. I guess thanks are in order!

  • A Pro-focussed Mac Mini is music to my ears. The BYODKM idea was fun when the machine launched but nowadays ‘normal people’ buy laptops. www.bloomberg.com/news/arti…

  • Oh my, Sonos now supports AirPlay 2 so I can now stream my podcasts to my speakers 😁😱

  • Those new MacBooks look tempting performance-wise. I got a 13” with touchbar when they came out but got the base model, and it’s a bit painful to code on it.

  • Uuni Pro redeemed itself tonight with 5 great pizzas 🙂

  • In its defence, it was a quite windy though so maybe that played a part. It’s fun to burn real wood though!

  • Another pizza night with the Uuni Pro and I’m not sold on it. The stone gets super hot but the rest doesn’t cook properly. I found myself lifting up the pizza on the platter a lot to keep it close to the fire and away from the stone for burning the bottom.

  • First of two pizza evenings done. Can’t pass judgement yet on the Uuni; I need to use it more to learn it. It gets really hot! Obligatory pics:

  • Dough has been made for tomorrow’s pizza night so I thought I’d share some pics. In chronological order; water, yeast and adding flour, halfway, 5 min later and after taking it out of the bowl

  • I hear tickets are almost gone for the Dutch Digital Day 2018. It was a super inspiring day last year and I plan to go again this year. Hope to see you there? bit.ly/2tnCOE0

  • I had a lot of fun at Layers conf talking about upcoming Sketch features. I’m thinking I might want to repeat the same thing with a quick Sketch meetup in the Hague some time soon. Find another speaker or two, drinks and a fun evening socialising. Interested?

  • I received an Uuni Pro pizza oven for Christmas and I’m so excited to finally set fire to it next week! I’m planning to document the dough-making and pizza baking experience here and share how this beast of an oven behaves

  • I finally got around to deleting my Tumblr website and changing the pieteromvlee.net redirect to point to Micro.blog instead.

    I did not want to inflict that ridiculous privacy/ad-tracking dialog to those few people who were curious enough to visit my (sadly neglected) blog.

  • Working on my ‘slides’ for Layers and trying to do them in Sketch. I’m planning to talk about a new feature, the process behind it, the balance between your own product vision and customer requests and how to keep a product simple. Sound interesting?

  • That Tumblr GDPR ‘partner’ mess made me realise I need to move my blog away from this madness. Think I’m going to give micro.blog a try instead… So, hello!

  • I’ve had a blog for ages but never been a prolific writer. Many attempts at reboots over the years failed.
