Ecosystems and the Universe

The function of the "oil pockets"

It just occurred to me that the oil pockets1 has a function2. And it makes me wonder what happens when the pockets, now without raw oil, should start doing something? Do we have any idea what their function(s) are?

Change of Brains

Been looking at Guix System Distribution (GuixSD or just Guix - though that is also the name of the packagemanager…) for some time now, and just recently got a chance to start testing and implementing Guix on a computer that will soon, I hope, be part of the browniehive infrastructure – possibly even replace some of it…

Hva er økologisk jordbruk og hvordan gjøres det på Bamble Andelsgård?

Det er mange meninger i luften fra tid til annen om hva økologisk dyrking er, om det er sunt og om det er bærekraftig. Dette er store komplekse temaer, men jeg tenkte å rydde litt i noen av begrepene og si litt om hvordan vi gjør på Bamble Andelsgård i den daglige driften.
