One thought on “About Me”

  1. Hi Jim. I am very impressed with your blog and your work and hope you can send me an email so that we can communicate.

    My name is Kjell, and I am a Norwegian working in the public sector in Norway we the same issues you are working on. I have been heavily involved in two major crisis affecting Norwegians – the tsunami in 2004 and the terror attacks on 22nd July 2011 – and I now work with a government agency where I am involved in a web page for crisis communications (www.kriseinfo.no) and its social media offsprings, as well as writing a guidelines paper for crisis communication.

    Hope to hear from you. Keep up the good work.
