#diary #trondheim #playground @ingeborgv #socialinnovation #technoport


Yesterday, after two days at Hell (department head seminar) I slept a couple of hours afternoon siesta before attending Trondheim Playground. I am glad I am able to sleep during the day. At the event TECH, HUGS & ROCK’N ROLL @ DOKKHUSET I met many nice Trondheim based innovators. I met for first time Lars Iversen (new technoport leader).

I went with my friend Hilde Grethe Skaret and her community, she was nominated to the price of community builder of the year. She did not get the prize, which went to DIGS (Jaya Thomlison and CO).
I also exchange with Ingeborg Volan about NxtMedia. All in all an interesting evening, I get even more inspired to work for social innovation and to live and develop this town.

.ps the department head seminar was interesting but I do not know more about the process ahead than what it is written in the document that was written by the rector to the board before board meeting 25.08. More information to come.

#terremoto – I poveri morticini

Uno dei miei primi ricordi. Le suore che raccontano del terremoto del Belice. Non so se ci fanno vedere le immagini o se le immagini le vedo sulla TV in bianco e nero. Ma ricordo come se fosse ieri la sensazione opprimente di capire e sentire il terremoto e la pena immensa per quei bambini schiacciati, che chiamo subito dentro di me i poveri morticini. Il babbo che mi accompagna all’asilo mi da’ una manciata di banconote. Devo pagare la retta dell’asilo. Non ho ancora tre anni e le banconote nella mia mano sono grandi come lenzuoli. Le do’ alla suora, dico che sono per i poveri morticini.

Il babbo e la mamma si arrabbiano quando la suora ringrazia la mamma della grande generosita’, 9000 lire donate ai terremotati del Belice. Il babbo brontola un po’, dicono che la suora ci ha fregati, ma dopo un paio di giorni, dal finestrino aperto, io minuscola davanti all’asilo ho di nuovo in mano 9000 lire e questa volta ci pago la retta.

Poi c’e’ stato il Friuli, l’Irpinia, l’Aquila. Riposino in pace i morticini e grazie ai volontari.


@TFBib Disse øyeblikk – Herbjørg Wassmo


Jeg hadde lånt min Kindle til en god venninne og dro derfor til bibliotek for å hente meg et par bøker. Fint å komme inn i Folkebibliotek, gode minner, dette må jeg gjøre ofte selv om jeg har Kindle. Jeg lånte “Disse øyeblikk” som er helt ok bok, men det er litt trist at en som har skrevet store verk som Dina, ender opp i sine gamle dager å skrive en autobiografisk bok som kunne ha vært skrevet i 70 tallet. Minnet meg om feministen Bjørg Vik, som jeg begynte å lese i 1989 etter norsk kurs trinn 1 og som jeg lærte mye av – både språk og norsk kultur. “Disse øyeblikk” er en helt grei bok, du kan lese den om du ikke har noe annet å lese, men jeg vil ikke anbefale den. Muligens, om du er ei norsk dame i samme generasjon som Wassmo forstår du boka på en annen måte enn meg.

Picture: Dina – versione italiana. Libro che consiglio a chi voglia leggere un bel libro norvegese.

The Girl on the Train

I listed this story on audible. I had to start several times as two female roles and two male roles are somehow intertwined at the beginning. It is part of the concept of the book. The main focus is on alcoholism and psychopathy. Usually I do not like British books. I do not like thrillers, either. But this one is very intriguing and I recomend it.
