A brief history of the Netherlands. By Irma
Irma was one the very first people who wrote and ensnared me in early Newsvine. I've never been sure what her nationality or who she/he really was. I only know that I long to see her articles here again. She was only one of hundreds who wrote articles of great strength and clarity. Although Irma was a pretty heavy "seeder" she did write some amazing articles. This one is from her very early days and is a four part series about what I presume was her home country. Read her if you at all care about Newsvine's past, its journalism and its vast community of excellent writers. Thanks.
This new series was started with the following linked article. We will soon publish an example from 2007.
