10th Icelandic Web Awards

7th February 2011

That was the year that was

2nd January 2011

I’d been hesitant about writing a review of my 2010, partly because it is something I’ve avoided each year, and also because I had such a brilliant and eventful twelve months that I hate the idea of appearing arrogant or self-indulgent.

Memories of another trip

9th June 2010

Having just spent ten of the best days of my life in New York and San Francisco, I’d planned to write about some of my experiences. However, there is way too much to cover. Therefore, I simply present a list; a personal diary entry to trigger my own memories of people and places in years to come.

Five Years of Quiet Revolution

13th November 2009

Nice people sometimes ask where the videos of my talks are. Well, most of my presentations have not been recorded, were screwed up during recording, are being sat on by the organisers, or were recorded in the dark without a mic.
