The Norwegian Ministry of Trade and Industry (NÊrings- og handelsdepartementet) is considering using social media and they’ve started a blog to discuss how and if they should do so. I’m not quite sure what sort of things I want the Ministry of Trade and Industry to share to be honest. I suspect a focused blog – say, on how to start up a business (if supporting that is even one of the missions of the ministry, see, I’m kind of clueless) – would be more useful than a general blog.

They want feedback, so go over and comment if you have any thoughts.

Are there other “official” Norwegian blogs I should know about?

They find that the Chinese machine vision imaginary is global, blue and competitive.  […]
