Amazing to see how fast Roderick grasps all of the digital world and how he thinks that the amount of information and entertainment is normal to have. At his age, not even a fraction of it was available to me ;-)

Flashmob celebrating the opening of the Rijksmuseum with Wim Pijbes overlooking the crowds.

Last week I had the unique opportunity to visit Fukushima with the volunteers of Safecast, an organisation that measures radiation. For the first time in two years the area has been given a better access, allowing us to come deeper into the wasteland it has become. The radiation in the accessible area is though still much much higher as in Tokyo.

It is unbelievable how the Tsunami has created havoc and as a side effect caused the nuclear disaster as collateral damage that came with it. The area is mostly depopulated with complete empty villages and is being cleaned by liquidators. All over you see big ‘garbage bags’ full of contaminated material, obviously not even the tip of the iceberg... It will take many many years before everything will be cleaned, if ever. A second Chernobyl has been created. An area where only old people are still willing to live combined with a standstill of economic activity.

My pictures can be found here.
