The Big List of Icelandic Developers
In 2010 I was working with a small team on a startup/side project and we needed more developers. My friend, Ragnar Freyr, had already made a website he called The Big List of Icelandic Designers and Creatives and I was inspired to create a similar list of my own, focused on Icelandic developers. There is also an accompanying Twitter list to let you get a sense of the current mood of the Icelandic development community.
It’s a pleasure hearing about companies and individuals using this list as a reference to find potential employees and contractors, because that was pretty much the goal of this project :)
Check out the list
I co-founded Loro with my girlfriend, Birna Birgisdóttir. We combine our expertise of creativity and digital marketing to help entrepreneurs grow their business. We regularly publish articles and are working on video courses to help startups create and market their ideas.

New York City Hyperlapse
Published on September 21, 2014
The app Hyperlapse (from Instagram) was released shortly before we went on vacation to NYC in 2014. It was a great opportunity to try out Hyperlapse and record a few short clips. I put them together, added a fitting song and out came this video.
Presentation about search engine optimization (video)
A presentation (in Icelandic) I gave on October 18, 2013 about search engine optimization at a conference about web solutions, organized by TM Software: Töff Stöff! Veflausnadagur TM Software. The title of the presentation was Vefsíðan sem vildi athygli – dæmisaga um leitarvélabestun.
I regularly come across silly and funny things on my travels around the Interwebs. I’ve posted a few select LOL-worthy pieces on silly.tumblr.com since February 2008.

Collaborative art exhibition (Reykjavik Culture Night)
Organized by Arion Bank in 2013
I participated in a collaborative art exhibition organized by Arion Bank in connection with Reykjavik Culture Night. The art work was on display on bus stops and other billboards August 20-27, 2013 and the exhibition was called Götusýningin 2013. My piece was a photo I took at the Coney Island train station while I was in New York in 2010.

Twitter account created with Brian Suda where we post a bacon-related link every Friday. It’s still active, which means we’ve posted almost 400 bacon-flavored links. We also created the single-serving website IsItBaconFriday.com.
