Fresh start

Wednesday, February 12, 2020

I recently decided to translate my website into english. Prior to this, I've been very focused on writing in danish as this is my first language and since we're a small country, I'd like to do my part in preserving the danish language. But, I've come to realise that many of my visitors on this site are actually foreigners, with english as their mother tongue.

My english is far for perfect, but I can write meaningful sentences, if I put some effort into it. LOL. Many of the topics I care about trancends physical borders. Especially on the topic of disabilities and how we need to develop societies into becoming more accessible for as many people as possible.

The same goes for my other huge interest. The FOSS community. FOSS stands for Free and Open Source. We see that it's gaining traction, so much that even the most stubborn parts of the IT industry has had to adapt to a new reality, or at least had to embrace the thought of the free and open sharing of e.g. source code (well, actually it was the norm back in the old days). It's easier for them, now that they see themselves as service infrastructure providers rather than software being their core business. There's progress in many areas, but we can do more!

The spirit of Open Source is not really limited to the sharing computer source code. I am a firm believer that free and open sharing of knowledge in general is how we progress as societies here on Earth, like it has been since ancient times.
