Relaunching Creatables

Any day now the new site for Creatables will launch, made by yours truly. The new site is based on Drupal6 and uses some proprietary modules. In the near future it will also include a store based on Ubercart.

I'm very excited. Creatables is company started by a friend, Erik Thorstensson, and which specializes on making innovative and well designed products created from waste material.

My parents were awesome

Inspired by the site My parents were awesome I made good on a 7 year old promise. When I was at university in Norrköping I took a bunch of pictures, developed pictures and dia, from home and promised I would scan these with the school scanner. I never got around to it, and the pictures moved with me to Stockholm. This christmas, 7 years after my first attempt, I decided to finally develop the pictures. I wanted to make a photobook as a gift to my sister Anna.

The updated site

As you may have noticed, there's been a major update to this site. The main reason is that I've moved all my subsites sharing the same Drupal installation, reducing the work I have to to every time there's an update. I was also quite mispleased with the old design, and the new one should be a bit easier to read and hold up for whatever web browser you decide to use. Even though it might be totally uninteresting for many of you, I wanted to write a bit about the tools I am using.

Bad Company 2 Beta

We announced the closed beta for pre-orders, exclusively on PS3 today. Even though I've been only marginally involved with this game, I've been watching it and participating in our playtests at work. It's going to kick ass! Modern Warfare (COD6), which is our main competitor, has taken so much flack for their design decisions in recent weeks. Anyway, here's is the newest trailer.

Siggraph 2009

I came back from New Orleans and this years Siggraph last week. It was very interesting as always, though a little smaller than previous years. No doubt because of the economic situation. Around 20 000 people attended the conference. There was also a noticeable lack of company parties this year. Rockstar and nVidia being notable exceptions. When the movie industry doesn't deliver the real-time people have to step up I guess...

Bondegatan, here I come

It's a deal! I just bought an apartment in Stockholm. And that's no small feat if you ask me. An immense 35 square meter one bedroom apartment in a building from the 1880:s. 3.30 meter ceiling height. Here's some pictures from the real estate agents prospect.

I'm going try to move in middle of July, then it's back home for my birthday and some vacation. I'm also hoping to get the opportunity to go to Siggraph in August.
