You might've come across our graphic on Engaged Time below the fold at some point in the last few months in AdAge, Buzzfeed, or on the blog. That figure's message is simple: even if not every reader scrolls down the page, the vast majority of readers' collective time is spent below the fold (the ...

Enterprise UX often involves navigating cumbersome processes, ancient technology, and clients skeptical of design’s value. Yet Fortune 500 companies are often the ones most in need of well-designed internal tools. Jordan Koschei takes us through common problems lurking in global organizations—and how we can improve people’s lives by giving internal tools the same attention as consumer interfaces.

Interesting post...
By becoming more conscious of our own stereotypes and biases, and making use of the insights revealed by the research on bias and stereotype threat, unconscious decision making, and cognitive illusions, each of us can bring more to our work and create diverse, innovative, and meaningful organizations.

Software developer, technology enthusiast
Hi! My name is Svein Morten and I create software for a living.

I also create software just for fun and like to explore various programming languages, development platforms and environments.

At work I'm using a stack of different languages and platforms including Microsoft .Net/C#, SQL Server, SharePoint, BizTalk, HTML, JavaScript, NetExpress Cobol, IBM DB2 and some other stuff as well.

Previously, I've been working with a lot of different technologies like C, C++, Java, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Qt, Visual Basic, Linux, Unix, Tandem and the list goes on. I also like to program and dabble in dynamic languages like Ruby, Python, Scala and Groovy.

I'm also interested in software architecture, agile/lean methodologies, mobile devices, social media and software tools. I also tinker a bit with hardware using Arduino. I try to blog and tweet about these things, but not as often as would have liked to. If you get me talking about this, you'll notice it's hard for me to stop.

On the personal side, I'm a dad and husband. I like cycling, swimming and hiking to keep in shape.
