Almost four years has passed, and a lot of stuff has happened in my life:
We’ve got another lovely kid – Esther.
The new Danish Liberal party – Liberal Alliance – has tried to hi-jack the meme BigMother and re-stipulate it negatively as the all-encompassing, dank hand of the welfare state.
I’ve changed jobs a couple of times. From strategic consultant in Advice to cosmographic as strategic director and then started /KL7 (seven o’clock in Danish) together with a group of really great and talented people. /KL7 is in many ways a strategic design agency along the lines of Bigmother specialising meaningful, careful and mobilising technology based on monitoring and interaction design. We focus on effect and behavioural change and call our approach ‘social engineering’. Please come and visit us at /KL7
I’ve been going through stem cell transplantation this year and I’m hopefully soon fully rid of the leukaemia that I’ve been living with for six years. A tough ride (pictures are just before and during treatment) but there’s light at the end of the tunnel now.
So now that I’m out of excuses such as baby children, Danish monopoly on the meaning of BigMother, life-threatening illness or energy-consuming ‘employee-jobbing’ I will take up writing a little again (funny how ‘blogging’ would have sounded altmodisch if I had chosen that term)
