My new pet project: Putting Norway on the map of computer science

In the beginning on May, Arialdo Martini posted this on Twitter:
I answered him...

An entire conversation followed...

And finally, a great idea!
Arialdo and I are now in the process of starting a new project. A project where we dig into the work of Norwegian computer scientists, looking at how they were able to change the way we think about computing. And maybe we will get an idea of what the world would have looked like if these brilliant minds had decided to do something entirely different.

We will be creating a public git repository where we gather all our research, so you are welcome to contribute to this project if you'd like. It's time to honour the men who have made our jobs possible, and we're starting with Kristen Nygaard and Ole-Johan Dahl.
