Hello, my name is Onno Vocks, that is my entire name, there is no middle name or initial. I was born in The Netherlands and lived there till the age of 5 and then the family moved to Aruba, where I learned several other languages, including the one I’m using now. That was followed by a ten year period where I lived here, there and everywhere, in all, about 17 moves. I ended up finishing High school and College in the U.S.A. and I’m now temporarily back in Europe to help care for my elderly Mother.
Where I’ll go next is a complete mystery to me, right now I’m spending most of my time studying alternative Operating Systems, search engines, the new on-line extortion industry and the various business models they use. Some of my posts will be on that subject, but others will be on the things I encounter on my excursions into my home country, which is largely unknown to me. There are lots of interesting old towns, buildings, water and windmills, some dating back almost a thousand years. Amazing to know that some of these mills are still functional.
While my older posts are a haphazard collection of things I have encountered, I’ll attempt to streamline the subject matter in future postings, but like life, they will most likely continue to be the chaotic collection that they are.
My advice is to never post a real image in combination with a real name, with that in mind I attempted to create this self portrait. Thank you for visiting.
