Brief introduction

From time to time I blog about web, information technology & services, information culture, web solutions etc. A more personal or general blog you can find here. Feel free to use the RSS feed (top right) to subscribe. Chrome or Chromium users can download an RSS Feed app here. If you find any of the posts interesting I don't mind use of social media functions to share links. 


Internet/intranet and extranet - all in one package?

Today many companies, whether larger, medium or smaller have a content architecture and production methodology from a different era. System life cycle have a tendency to be over-extended. While this happens development rushes on, demands with regards to mobility services and social aspects of web applications or content management services increases. Transformation surely can be a difficult business, changing systems resource demanding, potentially very time...

Links gone from Google? Yeah you bet

.. but what you're seeing (or not seeing) is very likely just the beginning. In the aftermath and following weeks after the EU ruling I ranted about in this blog , Google has been inundated with requests for link removal. Fair to say that one side effect of the EU ruling is that stuff you'd expect would pop up in search results no longer will,...

What's good web design?

It's quite interesting how things have evolved, especially for those who've been tinkering with web stuff and web design since the "beginning of time" or since web became available for the general public. For some of us it even goes further back, from the time when "design" was confined to what you could do on and with a Bulletin Board (BBS) menu screen. From the...

Languages and content; decided to keep it simple

I decided to drop native language or language selector, simply because I already have an English blog, information blocks used were already in English, and slides functions in my template currently only is limited to 3. So I saw no point in expanding to two parallel navigational structures. It would just be more to maintain. Norwegian visitors won't have any issues reading the content anyway...

Restructuring the website - language control

For some time the language aspect of this website have been somewhat of a hybrid, Norwegian and English hand in hand. Not the most tidy presentation I'll openly admit, but as indicated earlier there was this about priorities. Sometime during or after this summer a language solution hopefully will be in place. Not decided exactly what kind, and there are some choices. What is fairly...

CJEU supports company and favors internet freedom

In a legal case the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) on June 5th ruled that Internet users have the right to browse online freely without the threat of copyright infringement. The ruling marks the end of five years of litigation between publisher copyright group, the NLA , and a company by the name of Meltwater , provider of online intelligence solutions delivering...

EU vs Google - a step towards internet censorship?

May 13th a ruling came from the EU Court of Justice ( CJEU) that some have characterized as the first, broader legal step towards internet censorship. Yet others claim that this law, for the first time ever, may provide the general public with a tool to request removal of irrelevant, inadequate or incorrect information from the the search indexes. To what extent can or will...

When the going gets tough.....

... the tough gets going! Remember the movie Jewel of the Nile and the Billy Ocean sound track When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Gets Going ? Or perhaps it was before your time? Or not your gig possibly? Entertaining movie but yeah, it's old'ish. I however remember it and well, years later that song title, plus some of the lyrics surfaced many a...

Extended life support for Windows XP?

Well it did not take many weeks before someone worked out a solution (or hack) for die-hard Windows XP owners. A solution that may work, quite likely with the sort of risk you or I would like to avoid, but allow those who simply cannot let go of XP with (potentially) another (approx.) 5 years of support.
