Red Planet Dust Blog


Red Planet Dust is a blog created by Jan Willem Mars. I want to ponder about – and share about – a wide range of topics and developments which have caught my personal or professional interest.

I firmly believe nobody is helped with “sound bites”, not in politics, not in journalism, not in business. Reality is much too complex for that. This is a key aspect in my professional life, I am not following the fashions of the day, or use one-liner consultancy speak but try to get down to the core of the issues at hand to understand the underlying complexities, dynamics, and correlations involved.

A Living Resource

Often existing articles are updated with new information, links or comments. As Red Planet Dust is developing it becomes more of a cross over between a wiki type resource and an archive of articles referring to each other where relevant.

Threads of posts are clustered in series and landing pages. For your convenience a Blog Index is available to find your topics of interest.
