Dag 109 - Det er en lille verden




Dette er min ven Peter Normann. Vi læste MBA sammen i 1998 og har været gode venner siden da. Da jeg forleden dag stod og fotograferede langs lysten nord for København og anvendte en gammel træbro som en kompositorisk del af mine fotos, kan der en mand gående langs kysten med sit fiskerudstyr. Men jeg stadigvæk havde øjet klistret til kameraet lød der en stemme - "Er det OK at jeg går ud på broen?". Jeg så op og der gik vel 3 sekunder mens vi bare gloede på hianden for derefter at bryde ud i latter.

Med til historien hører, at da vi i sommers atter var i vores hus i Italien, havde vi aftalt at mødes med en fotograf - Erik Bjørn - som vi havde læst om i Berlingske, idet avisen havde fulgt deres hus restaureringsprojekt i Italien. Deres hus ligger kun ganske få kilometer fra vores, så vi ville gerne knytte bånd til flere danskere i området. Min hustru havde arrangeret aftalen, og da vi kørte derover, var vi spændte på hvordan det ville gå. Da vi havde hilst på Erik og hans familie lød der pludselig en velkendt stemme bag ved mig - "Hvad f..... - er det ikke Kirstein himself?". Jeg vendte mig om, og der stod Peter. Det viser sig, at Peter og Erik er naboer i Danmark! Det er sgu da en lille verden!

x-teams

I've just ordered a new book from Amazon. The name "x-teams" immediately caught my eye as I read about it in the Danish business newspaper - Børsen. The reviewer assigned 5 marks out of six, so expectations are high.
X-Teams written by Deborah Ancona and Henrik Bresman raises an interesting question already on the front cover.
"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

SnapScan 9000 - be prepared for a laugh

Can you guess who the nice young man is in the image? It is me as a high school student - important years - where my passion for photography really took off. My god - 35 years has passed since those happy years.

I have just scanned b/w negatives and color slides from these years, and it has been hilarious to see the pictures again. Since many of the images are not something to boast about, the mission was only to get the old negatives and slides converted to digital format. Since I have many pictures from my analog years this conversion process must also go quickly.

Therefore I have just tested JOBO Snapscan 9000. It took med just 5 minutes to unpack it and set up. The scanning process is extremely simple. You install an SD card in the scanner, and then feed negatives or slides into the scanner by the help of various rails and frames - one at a time. The scan process only takes 4 seconds per negative / slide. The scanner has some simple correction options such as built-in color corre…
