Hey everyone 👋

I'm Lars Wallin, founder and product owner etc at Colibrio Software in
Gothenburg.

I spend my days (an evenings) working to make the digital reading
experience more exciting and inclusive for all.

I have been working with digital information systems, e-learning etc since
1995:ish.

I believe standards and interoperability is key to a thriving digital
publishing ecosystem.

Always ready to discuss ideas to do with reading UX and accessibility.

very much wish there was
more time in a day so that I could be more
active in this group 😉

Hope to see all of you some day IRL!

/Lars
