This is the personal site of Erlend Schei, a.k.a @nerdegutt. or @schei. On this site (it’s actually WordPress behaving like something less bloggish) I’ll share all the arguably clever stuff I learn about creating and running a web business.

My professional background stretches from operational networkish stuff, all the way up through back-end programming to ixd and frontend work the later years. I’ve worked for FINN.no since 2001. At work my current digital baby is FINN labs, FINN’s innovation playground (Norwegian).

A lot of the work I do at FINN makes me dive into different technological challenges, many of which I spend a lot of time making (arguably) good solution. It would be a shame if these learnings were to stay in my head, if they can help others which have similar tasks. A lot of these issues I feel are of general geek interest, but too generic for the company blog. Meet nerdsillustrated.com!

I have very low barriers between my professional and personal life. Sad, you might say, but I happen to love the work I do and the business I’m in, so I’d rather call it a luxury. I benefit from the work I do at FINN, and FINN hopefully benefits from all my other projects and research.

Besides web work, I am a hobby photographer and Nikon fanboy, with far better gear than photographic skills. You can find me on Flickr.
