Reflections of a working writer and reader



From a Scroll to a Book

There is a wonderfully funny video made by Norwegian Television (NRK), about a new book user interacting with medieval technical support.

It’s in Norwegian with sub-titles in both Danish and English.

But go take a look. It must have been hell for early-adopters back in those days of rapid change.

    I fell off the chair laughing! It was THAT good! Where do you get these vids?!

    jb says: I do believe that one came from YouTube, Eli. But don’t go on there unless you’re prepared to kiss your life goodbye.

    Vaguely related to the post above (it’s Norwegian and it’s funny): An English language comedy skit from Norwegian TV spoofing the Danish language.

    The video was obviously a sarcastic type of humor, just like English TV shows. It sure made me laugh. Thanks for sharing!

    The video was so funny it gave me stomach cramps. Sarcastic jokes really work for me.
