The NRKBeta doctrine and the spectrial

The only way to control your content is to be the best provider of it. The phrase was used by Erik Solheim in an interview with Tagesschau to explain NRK’s policy of using bittorrent to distribute some of its content.Soon thereafter, Terje Tjervaag coined the phrase the NRKBeta-doctrine.


The ongoing spectrail against The Pirate Bay in a Stockholm court has brought new attention to the meaning of the phrase. There are so much depth to the phrase and I believe both the film and the record industry ought to take some time contemplating the content of it, given the day and age we’re at. The trial in Stockholm raises so many difficult questions, which from my point of view, only can result in a final Not-guilty-verdict.

The trial can be followed on twitter.


Back in VA Beach

My family and I have moved back to Virginia Beach and we have been here for almost four weeks already. The classes at Regent University start this week, and I am looking forward to a new semester here.

I haven’t been posting to my blog for some time and the reason is that I have been quite busy finishing my incomplete classes from the spring. For the future, it seems that the blogging will be less frequent as happened in during the first months it was up. For those of you who would like to follow us more closely, I would recommend that you become friends with us on Facebook or Twitter, as I find it more easier to post updates there.

Benjamin will start in pre-school next week and we look forward to hear him learn more English words during the following months.

We have become members of the YMCA and they offer some great facilities for swimming, sports and workout. It is cool to be able to follow our progress online when logging into Fitlinxx.

Here I am working out on a Star Trac 5600 Pro Treadmill at Indian River Family YMCA in Virginia Beach. Hopefully, I will loose some weight 🙂
