I sometimes write articles for Norwegian medical journals, Tidsskrift for Den norske legeforening and Utposten. They are not scientific articles, but clinical and philosophical tales, political statements, book reviews, and the odd editorial.
I also write articles and letters to editors in newspapers and journals. I don’t know if they’re worth the effort, they certainly don’t change the world, but they might make somebody stop to think a little. Maybe that’s good enough?
I am a member of Skepsis, the Norwegian Skeptical organisation. Skepsis is again part of the international skeptical network, and member of CSI and ECSO. However, everything I write in this blog is my responsibility, and is not influenced or censored by Skepsis or any other organisation.
I support Maisha Mema, a child sponsorship program in Kenya, who run an orphany and school for slum children in Nairobi.
I am a reader. I’ve been reading from the age of four. That’s actually my most important job.
Mostly – apart from scientific litterature connected to my profession as a physician – I read novels. I believe fiction is a major source of knowledge for understanding life and the world around us. Maybe a rather feminine view, but so be it. If you want to know what I’m reading, click “Lesestoff” at the top menu.
I prefer to read English and Norwegian. In fact, they are the only languages I actually can read, except for the other Scandinavian languages.
