After 30 years in the international computer industry, I wondered how technology could help people to discover their personal connection with history and culture. Genealogy is a critical area. It provides those connections. Next the story about our pasts is further enshrined in the heritage that is safely kept by our GLAMs. I created the Memlinq concept for building the vastest network of linked historical data, and then set up the Tinco Lycklama Foundation to build a concrete test case for how we can get citizens closer to our share culture, through digitised heritage.
