Get off my lawn.

Printing using PVAc glue on the build plate.
Doing my first 3D print with glue on the build plate instead of painter's tape.  I got tired of poor adhesion for the first few lines and then too much adhesion when you want to pull the part off -- resulting in parts that have fragments of painter's tape s...

Engineers and negativity towards making.
Over the past few years I've spent a lot of time tinkering and building stuff.  From electronics to mechanical things.  Both have been made possible by the fact that both of these things are now more available -- both in terms of physical availability, but ...

A few days ago I had the pleasure of driving  +Ståle Dahl 's 1972 Bertone-designed  Alfa Romeo 2000 GT Veloce from Trondheim to Lom .  Or rather, Ståle and I shared driving duties along this scenic route on our way to a company offsite.  (We usually just re...

Escaping the open plan office.
I'm often having a hard time getting much done in my office at work. In an open plan office the interruptions are constant, and if you want to escape your only option is to bring your laptop and escape into a meeting room with highly uncomfortable furniture...

Mesteparten av mitt yrkesaktive liv har jeg tilbrakt som utvikler -- omgitt av mennesker som er smartere enn meg og der hva du kan gjøre eller hva du kan levere er viktigere enn hva du kan drømme opp. Og før du tror jeg sier at de var smartere enn meg av falsk beskjedenhet; endel av folkene jeg ...

Reviewing 3D printers
I've read quite a few 3D printer reviews over the last months and now that I have had the opportunity to collect two months worth of practical experience with a well known 3D printer, I have to conclude that most 3D printer reviews are worthless. In general...

Breaking the patent system by making liberal use of patents.
It is no secret that I am no fan of patents.  Although the original idea was a good one (make sure inventions were shared), people tend to forget that the patent system was created a long time ago.  A very, very long time ago.  It is hardly relevant for the...

Consumer grade health monitoring equipment.
Right now a somewhat new category of health/medical equipment is beginning to emerge.  These devices are not your traditional medical devices, with their bureaucratic, long-winded approval processes that guarantee that whatever comes out the other side is t...
