Jakob Breivik Grimstveit – now that’s a topic.
Jakob is a 1978-model, living in Tertnes, just outside Bergen, Norway.
Although Jakob has been living in Tertnes since 1998, his attempts to speak the dialect of the locals normally results in chuckles. Luckily he’s much better at the dialect from where he grew up – Nissedal – an extremely scenic place in western rural parts of Telemark. He often enjoys using this dialect to confuse innocent bystanders, since many people often have the notion that people with unfamiliar dialects are naÃ¯ve.
All in all, dialects might not be Jakob’s best talent. On the other hand, however, he’s quite a knowledgeable guy when it comes to computers and technology all-in-all. This often leads to him spending huge amounts of both time and money on topics most people couldn’t care less about. And if you ask him about the topic of the day, he would most certainly be happy to give you a free three-hour crash course, perhaps even a hands-on session later on if you pass the I’m-a-geek-as-well test.
Since he’s also a father, corporate board member, student, hobby musician (in a very early stage, mind you!), hobby photographer (costly hobby!), child soccer team leader, volountary worker and wannabe personal excersizer, he’s more often than not very sleep deprevated.
Single as he is, there is no-one yelling at him to come to bed, and thus it’s often forgotten, or delayed till there is no point in getting to bed. (09jan12: Updated to reflect recent fortunate events)
Jakob has – in addition to this silly little blog – created a little web profile of himself over at Google, which is available for you to peek at. It’s located at http://www.google.com/profiles/jakobbg.
