The story of the matter is that there is a certain journalist from one of the Danish tabloid newspapers that the Prime Minister have refused to be interviewed by for years.
I am currently at the Adobe Creative Suite 3 Launch Seminar at CinemaxX, Fisketorvet, Copenhagen, Denmark. I've been here since 09:00 watching the Adobe employees presenting their new creations.
It is very impressive. Profoundly riveting. Neigh unbelieveable. They have made many changes to their immense software line-up, and while none of them are particularly earth-shattering, it is very impressive how well they've managed to get everything working together coherently.
I can't believe the news today. The danish bus drivers are on strike again. They want higher salaries, but then who does not?
It's all thanks to the labour unions. They've made a big deal of whipping their members into a frenzy this year, talking about how Denmark can "afford it". To me, that's a completely ridiculous notion. The Danish workforce has gotten so used to this twisted thinking that their salaries should always increase faster than the inflation.
Its officially a very long time since I last blogged here. The year 2007 has proved to be very interesting so far. There's been a lot of activity at my church lately, and work has also been busy. Our fiscal year ended december 31st, and since then, we've been quite busy in the accounting department. On top of that, I have all the technical stuff to take care of as well.
My recent trip to USA has certainly been educating. I got many of my presumptions confirmed over there, but I'd have to revise some of them. Which is good. I like to get my perceptions and paradigms challenged. Reminds me that I'm not perfect.
So, here I am at almost 11 km. above surface level, not far from the coast of Iceland. We have been in the air for a little more than two hours. Still 7 more hours to go until we touch down in Chicago, and then I'll fly American the rest of the way to Kansas City.
I read about their service on the web somewhere and decided to try it out. It sounded too good to be true (and it was): 100 GB of storage, 1 TB of traffic, 100 individual sites.
After a rather nasty episode with a DDoS attack and a lot of trouble with my webhosting-provider, my site is finally back.
In other news, I've disabled comments on the site, since I currently don't have the time to deal with all the spam that's coming in.
I've been watching the blogosphere a lot these last six months, and I've seen some rather disturbing things that have more than confirmed my suspicions of the contemporary political systems.
Most of the videos I've seen comes from America. I think the people over there are simultaneously worse and better off than the people in Denmark, though it is hard to evaluate.
I've taken an interest in Danish politics, and a thing that really bothers me, is the apparent lack of vision in all Danish politicians.
When I say apparent, it is with the realisation that politicians are (probably) human somewhere beneath the carefully groomed image of a good, honest and just person. And I'd like to think that most people have visions. Or at least a vision. A craving deep down to accomplish or attain something. If only a weak idea of how one wants his future to be. Dreaming of going to Hawaii with someone special or climbing Mt. Everest.
