I have more than twenty five years of experience using electronic data. Since 1993 I have been keenly occupied with data communicating. During the period February - May 1995 I carried out a research project - CYOPPVISKO -  about the use of data communicating in the secondary schools in the Oppland county in Norway. It really pleases me - now more than 20 years later - to observe that most of my predictions in the report have come true...

I have among other things made Internet presentations for Nordre Land municipality, Lands Museum in Dokka, Norway. I was responsible for the Internet presentation of the Norwegian Biathlon Championship 1998.

I have developed and conducted different courses about the use of Internet - e. g. the use of World Wide Web, the use of Email and Newsgroups as well as courses in designing HTML presentations on the Internet.

Right now I am trying hard to learn as much as possible about videoconferencing via the Internet. This is something that I believe could be very useful in the translation industry.

During my years as a teacher I worked with pupils having problems reading and writing, and I developed methods using computers and ordinary applications combined with ordinary means of education. In certain areas the results were stunning and very positive, and I hope one day I can work more with these very interesting matters.

I have volunteered for Projekt Runeberg digitalizing fiction written by great authors and presenting them on the Internet for free use.

I have conducted Norwegian courses for adult German part time students at Sörup Volkshochschule, Sörup, Germany.

I am a member of the conservative political party Høyre in Nordre Land, because I would like to engage myself a little more in what is going on in the municipality. I actually hate to be stigmatized and squared into any kind of stall, but I realize that I have to have a party political platform in order to achieve

something. Høyre is the party I dislike the least. I was October 1998 elected leader of the local party group in Nordre Land municipality, and was a member of the board of Oppland Høyre.  I was chairman of Kunnskapspolitisk Utvalg in Oppland Høyre - a committee planning and shaping  Høyre's educational policies in Oppland county. Unfortunately it is very difficult to combine these tasks with my living abroad, and at present I am not very active politically.

I'm a lover of out-of-door-life, especially enjoying trekking in the Norwegian mountains.

From November 1999 till May 2000 I lived and worked in San Dona' di Piave, near Venice, Italy.

From September 2000 till August 2015 I lived and worked in Maasholm and Sörup in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany and from 2011 as well as in Grums, Sweden.

At present I travel a lot living and working in several places in Europe, mostly in Grums, Sweden, Aurdal, Norway, sometimes in San Doná di Piave, Italy, Alicante, Spain and in Sörup, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

Our intuition about the future is linear. But the reality of information technology is exponential, and that makes a profound difference. If I take 30 steps linearly, I get to 30. If I take 30 steps exponentially, I get to a billion.
