A Human Movement

Hello, My name is Peter Ingwersen, I am a Danish Information Theorist, I work at the Royal School of Information and Library Science
Did you know that in Danish, if you say "Biblioteksudvikling," you are talking about information management? Well that is probably because you don't speak Danish. That is okay, though,

Hey check out my super fantastic book Information Retrieval Interaction If you get a chance, because being a Biblioteksudvikling kind of guy, I put the whole darn book right up on the web in an electronic version, published in 2002, converted to PDF from the original manuscript with no changes!! so young boys like yourselves could gobble up my jazzy theory of cogntion and informatio retrieval.

While we are on the topic of information and Denmark, if you get a chance don't miss this nice spread by the Royal Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs Denmark is really a nice place, probably because of our well run system of goverment. The principle behind the Scandinavian welfare model is that benefits should be given to all citizens who fulfil the conditions, without regard to employment or family situation. Isn't that neat. This means that there is very little difference between high and low, and rich and poor. And there is very little violence. Of course our little country didn't go stealing africans and forcing them into labor for a hundred and fifty years, hah, hah, hah.

Ok, I must be on my way I am going a tennis match between a deaf woman and a blind man. Denmark is one of the very few countries in the world to have a single sports organisation covering several types of disability. Since 1971 the Danish Association of Sports for the Disabled has worked to promote exercise and competition sports among the deaf, the blind, the physically disabled and the mentally handicapped. Should be fun.

Whereas understanding is a foundation
Whereas mind should move
Whereas things have limits
Resolved that knowledge is king.
