NGI0's Eric Velleman is installed today as professor of Digital Design & Engineering at HAN University today:

Congratulations! The ceremony has some good talks and can be attended remotely with subtitles in English (!). Warmly recommended!

@NGIZero congratulations! And doubly so, as it is good to see the #NGI0 account being active again, after Joost's departure. Welcome to fediverse ;)

@humanetech: Indeed, we are back in the air. Obviously, Joost has not just talent for this kind of thing, but also a professional pen as an accredited journalist. So he will be missed.

@bart @NGIZero

ah, I see. It's like KFC, the letters are meant to stand on their own now rather than point to some other, former, descriptive meaning

"Hogeschool van Arnhem en Nijmegen"

@idlestate @NGIZero Personally I still see it as a shortened version of the full name, but yeah I believe they do tend to brand it as a standalone meaning nowadays.

But I'm old fashioned, I still prefer calling the IT department the "ICA" rather than it's new "AIM" name 💁

@bart @NGIZero

I thought it probably was not a reference to an Asian ethnic group but figured it wouldn't hurt to check to be clear
