About this blog…

I am employed by Netnod as head of engineering, research and development and am among other things chair of the Security and Stability Advisory Committee at ICANN. You can find CV and photos of me at this page.

As I wear so many hats, I find it being necessary to somewhere express my personal view on things. This is the location where that happens. Postings on this blog, or at Facebook, Twitter etc, falls under this policy.

The views expressed on this post are mine and do not necessarily reflect the views of Netnod or any other of the organisations I have connections to.

Internationalization is hard

When checking into the hotel here in Barcelona, they (as all hotels) write a nice greeting message on the TV. This time, they even tried to spell my name with the right characters. The problem seems though to be that they wrote things in UTF-8 (or maybe even I did when booking the room?), but the display is ISO-8859-1.
