|I spoke to Atle, Jarl's
brother, about creating a web site for Jarl. He was very happy abut
the idea. More and more people are building communities on line and remembering
people who have passed on in this way. In the past, people would only see
family photos or albums when visiting family who may live far away.
But now people separated by distance can see those photos and communicate
over the web anytime. Jarl and Atle had a vision for the future and it
tied in with research they were doing and positive human character traits
they wanted to see perpetuated in daily life. The idea behind the web site
is not only to remember Jarl, but to promote the research he and Atle were
working on and the high ideals for which they strove.
So why this and why here? I was originally going to put this on my domain glowsquid.com but after deciding to give up that domain, to put it on zmax.org. What about glowsquid.com? Jarl and I spent many emails discussing the web and ideas and domain names. It's hard enough to find a good domain name given how most of the good ones are taken let alone one that is unique and offbeat. If I had put this on glowsquid.com, Jarl would've appreciated the irony and subtle humor of it. Here is what Jarl had to say about glowsquid.com.
