I work at 2 places: NOTAM, where I work with musicians that need some
kind of experimental electronics. Typical the projects we run are
covering both the musical and the technological domain, and sometimes go
in direction of applied research, but always with focus on the music
involved. I take care of the hardware related stuff and some software,
and get to work with musicians that know their stuff. I am very happy
with this setup.

The other place is my own small business www.wilmers.no, where I develop
measuring equipment for environmental monitoring, mainly for wind power
projects. In both places, I use microcontrollers without OS and bigger
systems (embedded or PC) running Linux. But I live with the conflict of
being open with everything at NOTAM, while creating closed source in my
own business. An interesting conflict actually, as I experience that
Linux is a great base for both concepts. In my view, that explains a
part of the tremendous development in the past few years.
