I am a Swede living in southern Stockholm and I was born 1948.
I have been working with IT since 1968 och been employed as a consultant and from 1974 at Ericsson for many years as senior manager of a telecom software development unit. I am now retired and active in many local non profit organisations.
I also believe it is necessary for this potential to evolve, that strong Local Chapters exist in order to create cooperation between all the different actors in the local society. I also believe it is important that the power and dynamicity in the user community must be encouraged and that the activities from the local chapters must support and complement the local community and never impede or double up what the community can do by themselves
