About Werner

I am originally from the Netherlands where I lived in Amsterdam for many years. After a detour in Portugal I came to the US in 1994. I worked for more than 10 years as a researcher in the Computer Science department of Cornell University. In 2004 I moved to Seattle where I joined Amazon.com.

    It is far easier to figure out if something is fragile than to predict the occurrence of an event that may harm it.
