Notes & comments

The translation of Scandinavian texts into English is by myself. This work has been demanding, and for closer study, the original texts should be consulted. The translation to other languages is my own work, except that Gianna Sorentino, Roma, has translated much of the Italian Vision Page (2000). From 1999 the art photographer Finn Owren Christoffersen (see the reference list above) has been involved in supplying his own photos for illustrating the hypertexts and discussing their editing.

The number of Norwegian-Americans [11]
The numbers referred to in connection with Norsk Høstfest are based on censuses in 1897 and 1997. The counting of ancestors is such that the forefathers and -mothers may come from a maximum of two countries.

Note on browser details:
‘Best seen with any browser’ – with your participation!
Tests are made with Netscape, MS Explorer, Opera and Mac with good results.
The title boxes on the Vision page and on the present page should “blink” on and off using Netscape.
The initials in bold have somewhat different size with different browsers.

Feedback from readers

The number of article hits recorded totaled about 40.000 during 2003. See also the statistics available on the WAP net on a mobile or a PC emulator, as shown at the top of this page. For example it appears that the Spanish version of the Vision page is about as well visited as the English version.

In 8/99 I presented a paper containing some material from this website to the 14. Nordic Conference of Media and Communication Research, in Kungälv, Sweden. My presentation took place in Workshop 18 on ‘Language and rethorics in the media’. My paper and some others are published here. Valuable comments and suggestions resulted from the discussions.


From a plenary panel discussion at the media conference in Kungälv. Looking for the cutting edge of the current media research.

In 5/00 I presented another paper at the CRIS 2000 conference in Helsinki, Finland: ‘Qualified journalistic illumination on the Internet of scientific theories and research’, in which this site was extensively used for illustration. The CRIS conference is a bi-annual event sponsored and administered mainly by the European Commission.
