Thinking about tulips
Thinking about tulips

I took this image 8 April and another earlier in February. The difference in weather is dramatic, it is 49 days between the two images.

There is one odd thing about the tulips surrounding the April Thinker. They are extremely early. I haven't seen any tulips as early in Skåne or Zealand.

Ludvig Holberg on the main square in down-town Bergen, a wonderful city by a very Norwegian fjord beneath some Norwegian mountains. I took this snapshot when I visited Uni Digital

I wanted Ludvig, the square and the mountain on the same image. Ludvig isn't as sharp has he could have been. Sorry for that. The camera in my phone focused on the background.

Ludvig Holberg was born here, but his academic career is connected to the university of Copenhagen. The University of Bergen and Det Danske Sprog- og Litteraturselskab are now producing a new critical edition of Holbergs collected work. Uni Digital delivers the technology and then plan is that we, The Royal Library, Copenhagen, and the University Library, Bergen, share the burden of hosting the system.

My name is Sigfrid Lundberg. The stuff I publish here may, or may not, be of interest for anyone else.

On this site there is material on photography, music, literature and other stuff I enjoy in life. However, most of it is related to my profession as an Internet programmer and software developer within the area of digital libraries. I have been that at the Royal Danish Library, Copenhagen (Denmark) and, before that, Lund university library (Sweden).

The content here does not reflect the views of my employers. They are now all past employers, since I retired 1 May 2023.
