You have reached the home of Morten Skogly, treehugger, beerbrewer, weirdo, DIYer, social entrepreneur and maker of websites. I work for the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation, but the views expressed on these pages are my own, and should probably not be assosiated with my employer. I am currently in the process of starting up a few smaller sideventures on my own, so my free time is spent on entrepreneurship and … bookkeeping :)

Connect with me

I love learning, thinking and talking about ideas, especially ways to make the planet greener, and would love to hear from you.

About me

I am mostly autodidact, and picked apart my first webpage in 1993 with great enthusiam. I’ve studied social anthropology at The University of Tromsø and Library and information science at Oslo And Akershus University College of Applied Sciences, but tended to get job offers that was more interesting. I’ve been doing new media journalism + producing, web user experience designing and research and development as a living since 1996, gradually sliding into project management in recent years. I’ve been with NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation) since 1997. 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.

About this website:

I started this blog in 2001, and it was previously hosted at pappmaskin.blogspot.com. I recommend starting with the Featured category if you are new here.

I love learning new things, and my interests vary a great deal. But the things I am most passionate about are DIY (beerbrewing, food, art, photography, crafts, design, coding, electronics, gardening) and making the planet greener. 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 older projects.


  1. Mr. Skogly:

    I discovered your wind-triggered lantern in «Make» magazine. I am writing to solicit your assistance with the design and development of the Gateway to Science, an outdoor, hands-on children’s science museum currently set for construction on a two acre site in Lake Zurich, Illinois. We would very much like your collaboration on an exhibit for inclusion in the museum. Please contact me at your earliest convenience.

  2. Just repaired my iphone 3Gs screen in a very long lunchbreak using your superbly detailed step-by-step tutorial. Simply fabulous! All is working fine again.
    One tip to add may be to show on a picture how the LCD screen splits from the mainframe as I managed to break mine not knowing where it is meant to come apart (ordered a new one and installed it already though). I found it helped to carefully lift the little steel bit that protrudes on the bottom left of the metal back plate of LCD…anyway, fantastic work, thank you SO much for making the effort!

  3. Thanks! I’m sorry to hear about the LCD, and thanks for the tip. I never quite found the perfect way to describe how to do this step, or where to lift, that’s why I simply said «be careful». The LCD is quite sturdy, mine has survived two glass changes now.
