The Management wishes to apologise for being Dutch and for having lived in the UK for 8 years. The Management apologises for being born in 1970 and therefore being quite old and belonging to the infamous 'Generation X'. The Management apologises for currently living in Doetinchem, The Netherlands which is quite a long way away from civilisation as we know it. The Management apologises for posting dull and very uninteresting photographs on this here site.
Well, at the time of the creation of undersigned webpresence around 1993, The Management was looking for a name for this site. At the time The Management was seriously into Minis (Mini Cooper, the car). Management was also seriously into Blur (Blur, the band). They had a site called 'Blurspace'. Hence The Management came up with the name 'minispace'. It's a bit silly now, but it kind of stuck. BMW uses the name now for all their MINI-sites. Oddly enough they didn't even ask us for permission.
