JB: How did you find the physical move to Frescati and the University of Stockholm? BL: When we got there, we became part of the Social Sciences faculty, where Boalt was the dean. He welcomed me to the faculty and supported our entry in all manners. Among other things, he invited me to lecture at the seminars of the sociologists. Moreover, my lecture made one of students in the audience rewrite his thesis, Boalt told me. 31 There I treated matters that might interest sociologists too. Nevertheless, when I told Boalt it would be interesting to see sociologists take part in developing the topic of administrative data processing, Boalt objected.
The committee claimed that such a small computer could not handle eight terminals. ID: I sat on the board of university computing centres. There were also people from Statskontoret and user representatives on that board. We probably had the matter submitted to us and made a statement. BL: Anyway, when we were moving to Frescati, we were bringing our eight terminals with us. Then the Numerical Analysis Department said they needed another eight. All of a sudden, they accepted that the HP should handle 16 terminals, and so it did, which I found quite amusing.
However, I do not see why it should. ID: Isn’t it the other way round? Sometimes we have to keep talking even though we are unclear. I do enjoy a piece of the humanities for a change in our very technical environment. Garcia Lorca is a writer known fairly little by us in the North. Do you know Spanish well? 33 34 Professor em. in Informatics, Umeå University.
