Things I am building[edit]

Hexayurt model. Photo lightbox.

Slow Shopping: Looking to buy[edit]

(Slow Shopping is a concept of shopping that allows you to outsource the thrifting to friends.)

If you run across this on your thrift shop or flea market travels, I'd be interested.

I would like that you bought it for me:

  • Item (max price: N kr)

Tell the world about our Style of Work[edit]

Knoll pad about videos that will appear a cooperation with monki of Gothenburg Hackerspace. We want to make a movie, an instructional.

Research interests[edit]

CampFireManager: a mini-barf[edit]

DONE: Pentabarf is huge, and runs on Ruby on Rails. Can this be done with smaller means? On other platforms, too? I'm looking into it, with an Englishman, in England.


Blogged about it. Will try and drag together people for more.


Pure Data on Wikipedia

Program Customization[edit]

Userscripts, plugins, themes, new ways for stuff to happen in existing applications.

Heroes and inspirations[edit]

Jeri Ellsworth[edit]

Jeri Ellsworth on the C64 joystick and her life at Stanford U. Fatman and Circuit Girl is a podcast-like video show. With Jeri Ellsworth. Watch the videos in that order.


Want to craft items[edit]

  • Flag with Forskningsavdelningen logo
  • Stamp (same)

Labeling system[edit]

Idea: To keep track of things, let's use labels. Label printers are cheap. Compare Labitrack.

Better solution: What we did in the end was to make labels that are the names of wiki pages in this wiki. SoldSta1 for instance, is a soldering station number one.
