was @sweden 2012-07-09 to 2012-07-15

Hej på er! I’m one of those white-collar civil servants wearing a t-shirt. The most important thing for me is the fact that I’m the father of two clever daughters. They both remind me I’m not 21 years old any longer (I’m 53…). I was born on this piece of land known today as Sweden (or Sverige, Schweden La Suede etc…). I’ve lived here all my life, but I’ve seen some other parts of the world. I spent a major part of my professional life in the trenches doing field archaeology. (And yes, I have found some gold – but no skulls!)

I live on the island Gotland in a small town called Visby, which is a World Heritage Site. Some people call Gotland ‘Calcatraz’ because of its isolated location right in the middle of the Baltic Sea, and the fact that the island is formed by a huge chunk of limestone (kalk = calcium). I’m employed by the government of The Kingdom of Sweden at the agency dealing with cultural heritage – in particular, ancient monuments, historical buildings and landscapes – The Swedish National Heritage Board. I keep myself busy working with the digitization of cultural heritage (linked open data, licensing etc).

I’ll try to give you guys an impression of what ordinary life is living on this beautiful island – pros and cons – and I’ll definitely be sharing some images (yes, I´m a photo nerd). And digitization will certainly be one of the main subjects during my “curator-of-@sweden”-week. Who knows – maybe I’ll even be visited by this Colbert character everybody is talking about. My personal twitter account is @arkland_swe.
