about the use of English, Norwegian Bokmål

Here my comment and a more general discussion about the use of English, Norwegian Bokmål, and nynorsk at NTNU. I hope the opinion of Marianne Eriksen whom I do not know and I thank for debating with me is not shared by several NTNU persons. Otherwise, there is little hope for NTNU to succeed in International competition and for Norwegian people to integrate in the International world.

professor Einar Aas died on Friday 6th July

It is a big shock this morning to read in facebook that Einar is dead. I cannot stop crying. I have met Einar first time in 1991 when I attended his CAD course here in Trondheim. I was not so strong in Norwegian nor in CAD but I soon admired the professor and the man. I met Einar in Grenoble at the University. I kept sporadic contact with him all these years but it was in the last couple of years that by facebook and by our connections to tto we started meet regularly and we developed the project Our Toys together.

Thanks Einar for being a good professor and a fantastic role model for all us.
