mvanittersum.jpgMerlijn is the technical brain behind our Workflow Engine (NetXq) and Dynamic Typesystem (Runtype). He is one of those core-developers who can be completely wired in. In the morning he enters the office, plugs in his earphones so he his completely isolated from the external world. Sometimes he even gets elevated from his seat, really! No one is able to distract him and he works his magic. You can check this little clip of the Social Network (2010) for an example of being wired in.

When Merlijn is not working he is playing his guitar or training for a marathon. In 2011 he participated in the Sydney marathon. On Saturdays you can find him in a special beer pub in Amsterdam.
