NLUUG awardI am very proud to get this award for my work on Vim and open source in general. The NLUUG is the Dutch Unix user group, they recently celebrated their 25th birthday. Other people who previously received the award are Guido van Rossum and Piet Beertema. So I'm in good company :-).
The award was handed out at the NLUUG spring conference. Gijs Hillenius interviewed me, which resulted in this article in the dutch newspaper AG: 'Weinig aandacht voor open source in Nederland` .
Czech people apparently like to interview me. A recent one can be found in the online magazine Linuxsoft.cz: in English and in Czech
Another interview was published in the Czech magazine
