In my young days, "social engineering" in the Welfare State was as big as the computer revolution has been in the last years. Initially, I worked ten years in government, calculating the Gross Domestic Product and running studies to project future trends. I left this work around 1985, and I have since made my living by computer programming. The democratic and anti-authoritarian revolution brought by the Internet is definitely the big thing in my life. It is a dramatic event in world history, like the fall of the Berlin Wall, and something I probably had always been waiting for.
In 1997 I made a program with a database concept that had been in my mind for at least fifteen years, "The Literary Machine." It has a steady download frequency of at least 100 a month since 1999. I get letters from people who are enthusiastic about it. Since the end of 2001, I am cooperating with Kathy Krajco to explain the program.
I wrote The Literary Machine primarily to help me write. I own a Rocket ebook (from the old Nuvomedia days!), and I follow developments in the electronic publishing industry with great interest. For the last few years I have also run a "one-man ezine" in which I publish political comments, philosophical essays, poetry and novels. Its steadily growing archive contains at least 600 pieces — all in Swedish though.
For a living I work with computer programming. I have moved to the new Delphi .NET development platform and in particular I work with migration of old Delphi code to .NET.
Logic takes care of itself; all we have
to do is to look and see how it does it.
