Det er, når livet viser sig så usikkert og tilfældigt, at vi må foretage et valg. Enten løfter vi os ud over hævngerrigheden og holder fast i vores medmenneskelighed, eller vi daler ned hvor der er angst og frygt. For mig er det ikke et svært valg.
Læs mit debatindlæg i Dagbladet Information om “Positiv særbehandling kan fuldende ligestillingen.” Et citat om USA: “Mens vores mødre kæmpede for retten til at være mere end nogens sekretær, fik min generation retten til at arbejde så meget, at der aldrig blev tid til at stifte familie…Her kan Danmark stå som rollemodel.”
Read my new article in The Huffington Post on Rihanna, Metallica and I: We All Contribute to Northern Europe’s Largest Music Festival.An excerpt: Caught up in Rihanna’s allure, a combination of over-sexed precociousness and genuine love, and perhaps aware of the singer’s fragile humanity, the crowd surrendered and believed her.

Summary: Human rights scrutiny is a necessary component of any effort to ensure that communication technology can be effectively adopted and used. This is particularly true when the means of communication are shut down during a democratic upheaval in one country or cut off for 10 minutes on a television set in another.
The author proposes a model to solve dissemination and access problems based on the case law of the European Court of Human Rights. While Autronic AG v. Switzerland stimulates the market to support innovation and dissemination of technology, Khurshid Mustafa and Tarzibachi v. Sweden supports the adoption of that technology without unjustified restriction by the state or private individuals. Together these cases can be interpreted as sending a signal to all innovators, disseminators and users, that no matter what type of communication technology is used, there exists a general right of access to all forms of information.
