My History

I am a Danish economist, architect and entrepreneur. 

I was born in 1946 and am a typical example of a Scandinavian post-war child who, thanks to the Danish welfare model, had a safe upbringing, received free education and can look forward to a safe old age. 

I have taken an active part in the youth uprising of the 1970s, I have lived in a commune and traveled to Mozambique with my whole family to help build an independent nation after the Portuguese colonialism. 

Since we, in the 1970s, believed that inequity problems could be solved politically, I became more and more skeptical of politicians and began to take an interest in information technology, which has now developed to a point where citizens have the opportunity to take back power.
