Articles in Computer Sweden

Today is a happy day for me! I have a full page in the Swedish magazine Computer Sweden , it’s an interview that got split into two articles. One is about Web 2.0 and the different online services that are released, and the other one is about using web standards, semantic code and separation of content (HTML/XHTML), presentation (CSS) and interactivity (JavaScript) to target as many users as possible.

Why this is a big thing to me is because it’s the computer magazine with the widest spread in Sweden; an estimate of 127 000 readers! That’s about five times the population in the town I live in, Vallentuna, or about 1/70th of all the Swedes. 🙂

Another thing that makes me happy is that the journalist that interviewed me is the same one whose article I expressed my opinions about two weeks ago. Kudos to him for understanding the constructiveness of my post and also seeing how I could contribute to his magazine.

If you have a web code for Computer Sweden, you can read the two articles here:


  • Congratulations Robert!

    I read the articles in CS this morning and felt i have to congratulate you!

    As a dayly reader of your blog i really appreciate the hard work you put down on this!

    You deserve the credits!

    Web 2.0 + Ajax is here to stay.

    Congrats dude, you totally earned it! 🙂

    And YAY for spreading quality practices among Swedish tech people 🙂

  • So you reckon five years you are rather optimistic and I agree it's a shame about SVG only just starting to make inroads.

  • Jens Wedin says:

    Great stuff. Congrats.

  • Congratulations Robert, You are such a heavy weight in web development arena that your views and artyicles should be spread all over.

    This may be your break into journalism. hahahahah. Joking aside, good for you man. Enjoy the limelight while it lasts.

  • Martin N says:

    Well done!

    I hope that they've quoted you correctly. I'm looking forward to reading the article.

  • Tommy Olsson says:

    I didn't get the paper before I left this morning, because of all the snow that's been coming for three days straight now. But I got to read it tonight.

    Well done. It seems like he did a fair job of jotting down what you said, at least in the first article. The second one indicates that the journalist in question doesn't know the first thing about web design. He didn't get things too much wrong, but some of the 'explanations' were WTFs. 🙂

  • Nice work, keep spreading the word. Any chance the articles will ever be available in English?

  • Martin S. says:

    Hey.. congratulations! Maybe I should get myself a copy of the latest Computer Sweden, or we'll meet the forthcoming week and you show me it? 😉 Cya,

  • Henrik says:

    Guess I'll have to buy me a copy of Computer Sweden to be able to read those two articles.

    @Martin: Feel kinda strange finding you here after seeing you on webforum for sÃ¥ long… Do you Stockholmers have a secret webdesign/development club that only 'the initiated' are let into? 😉

  • Robert Nyman says:

    Thanks a lot everyone, I'm very happy about it, and for your nice comments as well!

    Robert W,

    Your Swedish guessing is just getting better and better! 🙂


    Not very likely, I'm afraid, but I can give you a rundown at SXSW in just (gasp!) six days!

    Martin S,

    Just drop by my office and I'll let you read it. 🙂
