Hi! I’m Niels ’t Hooft, hybrid writer. Born in 1980, living in Utrecht, The Netherlands with wife and daughters. I like mulling over ideas for days, typing heatedly in coffee shops downtown and getting together with others to build beautiful things. Which lead to books like De verdwijners (‘The Disappearers’), games like RIVE and startup Immer.
What’s new? I just soft-launched Immer, working on the future of reading on your phone.
Hybrid writer? A fancy way of saying the intersection of literature and technology is my natural habitat. For example, I researched reader feedback and longform screen text. A ‘scan’ of digital literature was published by KVB Boekwerk. And I can tell you in colorful detail what connects Haruki Murakami and games.
Watch this TEDx video from 2016 for the hybrid writer in a nutshell:
