About this website:
I started this blog in 2001, and it was previously hosted at pappmaskin.blogspot.com. It is in transition at the moment, I need to clean up many of the posts after importing them from Blogger.com (quite a few lack titles, and are uncategorized, but feel free to roam around. I recommend starting with the Featured category if you are new here.
I love learning new things, and as can be seen from my delicious tagcloud, my interests vary a great deal. But the things I am most passionate about, are DIY (coding, electronics, mechanics, farting around in the house and garden etc), environment, architecture, and of course social media in any form (lucky for me, since that is also my job :). You will find that reflected on this site, often in open source form. Almost all my images are CC Non-commercial attribution or better, and I also provide source code for some of my projects.
I am self taught, and picked apart my first webpage in 1993. I’ve touched base with various academic institutions, but had job offers that was more interesting, and I’ve been doing new media journalism + producing, web user experience designing and research and development as a living since 1996 or so. I’ve been with NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation) since 1997. Oh, and I REALLY wanted to become a librarian once upon a time. But I guess these days, we are all librarians.
I have 3 cute kids, a wife, and live on the outskirts of Trondheim, Norway.
