In the spirit of all things Swedish, check out this New York Times blog from a few weeks ago about Sweden and technology:
It takes a pretty open and egalitarian society to be willing to hand over their country’s Twitter account to a lesbian truck driver, especially one who then goes on to criticize their policies towards transgendered individuals. I am curious about how they chose the Swede for each week. A country-wide lottery? If so, maybe they’ll get around to choosing someone who is not from Stockholm soon…
You can follow each week’s Swede on their Twitter account ( @Sweden), or you can check them out online (https://twitter.com/sweden). At the time of my post, this week’s Swede is Daniel, a leader writer from Sweden’s largest newspaper, Aftonbladet (if you speak Swedish or have a really good Google translator, you can check it out here).
On a somewhat bizarre aside – apparently Swedish words give the spell check troubles. I got dinged for “lingonberry” and “Aftonbladet.” I expect the later one to have problems, but lingonberry? They make a fantastic jam, and should be added to the WordPress lexicon
