Acknowledgements

This book is an adaption of my phd-thesis defended in June 2010 at Aalborg University in Denmark. I have removed some of the more academic stuff to improve readability. The book has been a long time coming, and many people have helped it along its winding path. Above all I have to thank my wife, Annika, and my kids for their extraordinary patience and understanding. How they have managed to put up with my endless nights of reading, browsing and writing is beyond me. My advisor, Lise Kofoed, helped lift the text from a hotchpotch of trivia and tediousness to a proper thesis through repeated reviews and sound advice. And several friends including Bodil Jönsson, Henrik Ravn, Terkel Skårup, Bjarne Tveskov, Louise Koch, Joost Elffers and Howard Rheingold have offered invaluable advice and feedback. I owe you one, guys!
