Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

So, now I am back from this year’s engineering seminar, the fourth arranged by Opera. This time we stayed at a hotel i Sarpsborg, where we spent two days with speeches, meetings, discussions and other things. We got a “soft start” on Wednesday, in the office, with a hackaton where the task was to, in (self-chosen) groups, to implement a simple web-based application. My group wrote a little tool to show where IP addresses are located on a world map, an entry I was quite proud of and that was nominated for a prize in the category for the best entries (but which unfortunately did not win).

One important part of this kind of gettogether is to meet and talk to people you don’t normally interact with a lot, and to do it outside of the offices. It was very nice, although I am a bit tired now that I am back home again.

What is really nice, however, is that I have vacation next week. I have looked forward to that for quite some time.
