I have no idea what this is, but it grows just outside my classroom. Suggestions?

Ed Sheeran - I see fire

It is Saturday again and it has been a week full of work and other events. Time to put the feet up and relax a bit. Here is a song to go with that!

For those of you that still don't know Ed Sheeran, it is about time you did! And this is a great song and video that give you a little view into the recording studio. The guy is a fantastic performer and has a list where he sends out news and links to songs sometimes. You can find more info here:

http://www.edsheeran.com/

I will definitely be posting some more of his songs later! You can also follow him here on +Ed Sheeran .

Waterfall at Boa Esperança

Last week-end I had the pleasure of visiting Fazenda Boa Esperança in the South of Minas Gerais, Brazil, together with a group of fantastic people. We hiked to see some of the waterfalls and enjoyed local cuisine.

If you visit any of the three biggest cities in Brazil - São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro or Belo Horizonte - you should try to plan for a trip up here. It will take you 4-5 hours by car and you will experience a very different Brazil! Maybe plan a few days here during the World Cup?

Why likes on Facebook can be bad for your business

Do you have a Facebook page? Would you like a lot of people to click "Like" on that page? Well - you are not alone.

There are two fast ways of getting a lot of likes. One is illegal according to the rules of Facebook. This is simply buying the likes you want. The other one is buying advertising from Facebook.

The problem with both of these methods is that you get a lot of likes, but no interaction. And this will eventually be bad for you. But watch the video to get the full story.

For those that can not spend the nine minutes right now (I promise you - it is worth it!), the short of it is: Spend time, build relationships. Grow organically. Yes, it takes more work and more time. But it will be worth it! Do NOT get fooled by the numbers of likes that either you or your competitors get. It is worse to have a lot of likes and no interaction than to have few likes and a lot of interaction!

And maybe you should think about spending some of the time interacting with your customers somewhere else than on Facebook. Google Plus might be a good place to start ;-)

Now, spend those nine minutes it takes to watch the movie!

The Infamous Stringdusters - Let it go

It is Saturday night, and time to let the struggle of this week go and enjoy doing something totally different! What do you prefer to do during your week-end? I am planning to make some good food, enjoy a movie and see some good friends.

And while you are thinking about what you are going to write in the comments here, listen to some great bluegrass music!

I am trying out one of my pictures as a custom theme in Gmail. If you like it, feel free to try it as well! You can also use it as a desktop background on your computer.

The picture was taken a little after sunset in an mountain area called Mantiqueira in the south of Minas Gerais, Brazil.

Veldig mange år...

Det hender vel at det går litt fort i svingene for journalister. Men de burde jo sjekke hva de har skrevet i etterkant? Siste setning i artikkelen lyder:

"Dersom de tiltalte i Sponsorlink blir dømt for medvirkning til grovt skattesvik kan de bli idømt flerfoldige års fengsel i flere år."

DET må vel bli ganske mange år til sammen! :-)

Ekteparet Ivar og Kari Stuan i Sponsorlink kan bli dømt til fengsel for å ha "hjulpet" firmaer å unndra skatt. Men firmaene som faktisk har unndratt skatt, de blir ikke tiltalt.

Av og til avslører sånt at de som skriver "ikke er tilstede" i det de skriver. Tenk om en lege- eller en pilot skulle komme med slike flauser? -Vi ber passasjerene om å feste setebeltene og ta på seg sikerhetsbeltet....

A Norwegian living in Brazil
Introduction
WORK
The area I live in has a very high technological level. A great workforce and great universities. We also have what is called the "Silicon Valley of Brazil" only 20 minutes from here. It is the perfect area for any foreign company to find partners for business.

I have spent the last 20 years in the area of communication. Mainly broadcast tv, editing, film, but also internet. And I really enjoy these areas coming more and more together. Seems like all forms of communication are melting together these days and we get possibilities we could only dream about when I started out!

ACI - Avid Certified Instructor - Please contact me for more details about official Avid MediaComposer training. I am comfortable doing the training in either Norwegian or English, but will be happy to mix in some Portuguese to the best of my ability.

INSPIRATION
I bring my camera with me as often as I can. The best camera is the one you have with you! It is my way of saving some moments. But to me, photography is not decoupled from enjoying the moment. I can walk around for a long time without even taking my camera out, just breathing in the things that are happening around me.

I do have a website set up for some of my pictures, www.oceanwatcher.com . Go there and have a look!

And in between all this digital life, I have a passion for one of the most analogue things there is - cooking. Brazil really has an abundance of products to cook from and I am enjoying it a lot. Even a small garden here can have a variety of fruit trees - mango, avocado, papaya, lime, lemons, oranges, figs and most of them can even be found in several varieties. I sometimes feel like a child discovering all these things. My latest adventure has been starting a small herb garden in the hope I will be able to grow enough for my own use.

Another analog activity is playing golf. I have not played as much as I wanted over the last couple of years, but I love every round I am able to play!

If you want to add me to your circles, good topics could be

  • Photography
  • Brazil
  • Norway
  • Cooking
  • Network building
  • Broadcast
  • TV production
  • Avid MediaComposer
  • Joomla

Languages spoken: Norwegian (communicate with Swedish and Danish as well), English, enough Portuguese to make myself understood and a little bit of German.
