December 30, 2010: 'Another year over' as the song goes... more or less. The digital library has been insanely time consuming, but also a lot of fun. I found some old childrens books that are public domain. Long forgotten gems in Danish literature, that I've started to scan and make available. None of them have been available on the net before, as far as I know, and from what I've been able to find about the books, they haven't been in print for some 80+ years. The one I uploaded the other day is the fourth, so far.

October 13, 2010: A couple of years ago I tried to use the site to promote some of the causes I like, like Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders. The way I did it was a bit problematic in terms of rendering the pages and using the space on the pages, so I had to take it down. That problem should be solved now, and the first pages are showing the causes. I don't believe in all that mindfullness-holistic-spiritual crap, and there is no Kumbaya or We-Shall-Overcome involved in this. Here we have some organization and people who are actually making an effort to make the World a better place, even to the point where some of them are putting their life on the line. I know this doesn't change much, perhaps nothing at all, then again, it may make some people aware of the efforts being done and even inspire someone to do something to help out.

September 18, 2010: Busy year. Haven't gotten a lot of new biographies on the site. A lot of time has been used getting the digital library working properly. Even when you can get the stories in HTML format, it is a rather time consuming process to convert them to your own layout.

January 3, 2010: 2010... Soon it will be seven years on-line. The Internet is a turbulent place and staying on top of the game is a major hassle. 2009 was rather uneventful for this site. Mostly things have just been chugging along, trying to get some more info out there. For many sites I think 2009 was just something you had to survive. The recession has been hard on the commercial sites, and the influx of Chinese web users has most likely changed the topography of the net. This will most likely change again when large areas like the Middle East and Africa start to have unlimited and cheap access.
