Kristian Lyngstøl's Blog

Who Am I?


I am Kristian Lyngstøl, a hacker born in the dwindling days of 1983 in the city of Oslo. I use this site to write about anything that's on my heart, from photography, to coding, to cycling, to coding, through home renovation projects, to coding and some times about myself.

From time to time there's overlap with what I happen to work on, but none of what I write here is in any way official or things I've been told to write.

You can reach me at, but I am horrible at keeping up with mail (nothing personal), so you may have to poke me extra.

I currently work at Telenor (Strictly speaking, Telenor Norge), the largest Norwegian ISP, where I work as a developer on the Network Management System team.

I'm part of the (volunteer) crew at The Gathering, worked on Sørlanet and I was one of the founders of BølerLAN, though we haven't arranged BølerLAN for a while now. I've done a lot of different things at computer parties, from server management to people management.

I have ADHD, which you can read a bit about at That blog post is easily the most important blog post I've ever written, largely thanks to the overwhelmingly positive response I've gotten, both in comments (mostly lost now), mail, real life, IRC and more. I've tried several times to write a follow up, but I'm fairly lost for words when I think about the response I got.
