Leaving Logica to go and work for the OECD in Paris

It is with mixed emotions that I’m telling you that I’m leaving Logica to go to work for the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and development in Paris as an economist/policy analyst in the information, communications and consumer policy division. Logica has given me great opportunities to work in the fields of telecommunications and utilities. I had the pleasure to work on a variety of projects ranging from shaping the Belgian energy sector, to smart metering and Machine to Machine communications and the future of ENUM in the Netherlands.

I’ll start at the OECD on January 3rd, initially for a period of 13 months. I will work on the high level meeting on the future of the internet economy, which will be held in June, and on other subjects regarding telecommunications policy. It’s an exciting step. I don't know yet how this will affect this blog as I don't know the OECD's approach to new media yet. It might be that the blog and twitter will go on hiatus. 

I still hope to write two blogposts:
1. everything I know about 3 digit MNC's. There is hardly any information available about it and what is there is mostly misinformation
2. How we should get rid of the difference between public and private networks in most of our telecommunications law. 

And I'm tempted to write a third as a reaction to the Berec mobile roaming consultation

So many ideas, so little time.

  1. Congrats on the new gig. If I may ask, will you move to Paris or telecommute from Almere?
    Earlier this year I interviewed a guy from the OECD, Talylor Reynolds. Sounds like he might be a kindred spirit...

  2. Hello Rudolf,

    I came across your blog through a "Logica" Google alert. Complements - I like it very much!

    I start later this month with Logica in the company's UK graduate development programme as a business consultant. As your last pre-hiatus entry is my first one, I will enjoy reading backwards!

    Best wishes to you at the OECD. I have a good friend working there exploring alternative economic measures to the GDP. It seems like a great organisation.

    Very respectfully,
