Content and purpose

In addition to containing professional and personal blogs, the main purpose of this site is to be a combined professional compendium and extended curriculum vitae for the Norwegian IT-professional Svein-Magnus Sørensen. The contents provide far extended details on education and experience in comparison to a regular resumè, as well as other background information that may be of interest to current and future employers and clients.

The concept idea for this site was developed as an attempt at innovative personal marketing in the years after the dotcom-bubble. It's primary purpose is to act as a valuable supplement to a regular resumé for headhunters and corporate recruiters, and it can hopefully provide a competetive edge over candidates whose background and abilities are only available in the limited format of a regular resumè.

The site also achieves a secondary purpose in providing access to a detailed first-hand source of personal background-information on my person, which allows information workers and others to complement and verify details about me that have been acquired from other sources.
