Entrepreneurship

Introduction

As I mentioned before I'm a young internet entrepreneur. Therefore I started a business in the webdevelopment industry. Besides nicknames as, Willie, fat polish guy and fitnessboy, another nickname of me is Kazimi. This nickname knows a lot different story than the other ones.

When I was young I was inspired a lot by my grandfather. His second name was Kazimierz and I like the tone and feeling with this second name. When my internet-life begun at the age of 13 my chosen nickname was Kazimi. This because Kazimierz was an often used nickname. Since then I'm known on the internet as Kazimi en therefore it's also the name of my business.

Since webdevelopment is Industrial Design related, people told me to definitly include that in my showcase in the Extra Cirrucular section, so I can tell something about my development in this "competency"

Smart Homes Fair

I worked two days at the Smart Homes Fair in the Evuolon in Eindhoven. I learned their a lot about home intelligence systems.
I managed to get myself working at the readings so I could attend every reading.

I gained knowledge about the technology behind intelligent home system (that in 90% of the times using the same system called KNX). I also gained information about the applications of intelligent home systems.

As last I aslo saw Thomas van der Ploeg (ID student and rowing friend) winning the Smart Homes award with the company where he is working for.


Light Vision lecture

During the Dutch Design Week there some interesting lectures going on. I attended the lecture about applications of light technology in modern products, for, for example, hospitals, schools, and public areas. There were mainly speakers from Philips, so I got a good insight of what is going on in the most modern light developments in Philips.
