Think new

Vegard Hanssen
I’m born in 1973, married, 2 children. Member of Mensa, and creating puzzles for the magazine. I have 10+ years of experience keeping servers up and running 24/7. I love to code, especially algorithms, which is the reason why I have published over 20 puzzle books at Cappelen/CappelenDamm.

I need to be creative, and making videos and music is one way of doing that. Mostly with my wife in our home studio. I also like running, and I am working on lowering my half marathon time. Playing bass is always fun, and visualising songs so the audience get a good experience is always rewarding. And well, I like to code on my spare time too. Almost nothing is more rewarding than inventing a new algorithm.

Creating new things, while moving people from here to there.

I like to be in front, being a part of inventing new things. Working with people that make me go the extra mile, because they are good, is rewarding.

If I could choose what to invent, it would be an AI.
