Google+ suggests that I fill this text box with a short description of
me, so that you can tell you've found the right "Torben". Let's put it
this way: If you've seen the rest of this page, and you're still not sure whether you know me, then you don't :-)
For everybody else, a few highlights:I'm an identical twin. Man that's fun!I'm from Denmark,
I've also lived many years in Sweden, Germany, Japan, and currently
Austria. I speak 4 languages fluently, plus one or two more rather
badly.I'm a father
of two wonderful young boys, and I'm very active on a great parenting Q&A website
a hybrid of IT, economics, and organizational change. That makes me a
bit of a Swiss army knife, and I've worked in software, shipping,
insurance, banking... Every kind of business that uses software. Right now I'm doing anti-
money-laundering, which is more exciting than you'd expect, and probably safer than the kind without "anti".I'm very good with tools,
whether IT or mechanic. Nobody
can assemble IKEA furniture faster (and better!) than I can. Yes, you
may challenge me. Or hire me; I'll bring my own tools. I've always been the local software and hardware guru in the office, and I leave a wake of wiki intranets
wherever I work.On computers:
I've used Macintosh in the good old days
before it was Unix-based. I don't like OS X because it requires so much
mousing. I did like my (jailbroken!) iPhone because the hardware is
fantastic; I absolutely hate iTunes. Switching to Android made me much happier.
I've used DOS and Windows since forever, and I really miss Windows XP. I'm trying to get used to Ubuntu on my home computer and I'm doing great. Ubuntu's "App Store" is awesome, and so is the Ask Ubuntu help community
I'm generally soft-spoken but driven by clear principles.
I'm not religious; I believe in science.
I'm a facilitator - what I do best is help others be great.
