Aad Koppenhol is Senior Principal IT Consultant/Architect and Open Source & Standards driver in the Netherlands. He has 35 years of experience in ICT sector. During his ICT career he has played different roles. He strongly believes that, in view of the current changing role of the Web towards a Social and Cultural utility, more than ever Human Values need to be protected. In his PhD on Value Sensitive Design and Information Architectures at the Delft University of Technology he argues that technology's first role is to facilitate mankind. His motive is based on co-creation or 'Collaboration & Knowledge Sharing', which are key in many developments. That's why Open Source & Standardization is key for a expert like Aad.The combination of his interest in Technology and Philosophy feeds him with fresh insights. As an IT-Architect he is very conscious of dealing in human values. His broad experience and technical skills are to his advantage and match his relation-building capacities.
