Welcome to ookii.org, Sven Groot's website. I am a Dutch former-student, graduated Master of Science in Computer Science in 2006. I am currently living in Japan and am a research student at Tokyo University.
Some of you may be wondering what "ookii" is. "Ookii" (in Japanese: 大きい), which is roughly pronounced as the English sounds "oh-key", is Japanese for "big". My last name (Groot), is Dutch for "big". Because I am an afficionado of Japanese culture (next to my major in computer science I also followed Japanese language courses at Leiden University for almost two years) - and because the domain name was available :) - I thought this would be a nice name for the site.
There are currently five major sections to the site. First is this, the blog. Here you can find interesting and not so interesting stuff I have to say. I've tried blogging before, it wasn't such a big success, so don't expect very frequent updates. But at the very least major new additions to the site will get a mention here in a blog post, and no doubt I'll occasionally post other stuff as well.
Then there's the University section. Here you can find various projects, papers and presentations I've done as a student at Leiden University's Computer Science department.
If you wish to contact me, the best method is to post a comment right here on the blog.
Updated 2007-03-18: updated text so it's a more general introduction to the site.
