I have a masters degree in computational linguistics from the university of Gothenburg. My thesis was about implementing a toolkit for performing psycholinguistic tests using personal computers. I then started pursuing a PhD in linguistics, while at the same time working on the IKON project (Interactive Concretisation of Text), which started as a spin-off from my masters work. IKON aimed to develop multi media tools for helping persons with recognition disabilities, e.g. aphasia, to better understand a written text. Some more information about this can be found here. But I got tired of the academia balderdash and went to work.

Update 2: The Wayback link is also gone now. Oh well, it wasn’t very interesting anyhow.
