If only life was as simple as black and white


Hi, you have reached the website of Kristian Holm, a librarian working with logistics in the retail industry. Currently employed to handle inbound deviations at Educated at Høgskolen i Oslo og Akershus as a librarian with spesiality in kunnskapsorganisering og gjenfinning (English translation: "knowledge organization and retrieval").

I´m an Emacs entusiast, GTD practitioner, librarian and logisticsoperator.

Emacs entusiast

GNU Emacs is the editor I choose to learn when I started to learn about UNIX-like computer operatingsystems. I really like the ability to use GNU Emacs both on the desktop, in the console and over SSH on remote computers. And in this respect, I also have a soft spot in my heart for Free Software.

GNU Emacs is a powerfull and complex tool, which was initially released in march of 1985. Over the years the program have developed into what the tagline describes as "the extensible self-documenting text editor".

GTD practitioner

I started using the Getting Things Done methodology a while back after bying the book Getting Things Done: How to achieve stress-free productivity by David Allen. The act of writing down thoughts and reviewing whats important and what to do, have served me well. Even though I'm still just a student of GTD, I belive I can use it to develop myself as a professional in whatever field I choose to apply it in.

You can find this title at Getting Things Done: How to Achieve Stress-free Productivity. Or if you prefere the kindle edition, you can find that at


I am educated as a librarian at Høgskolen i Oslo og Akershus. As a person I am fond of systems and organizing, so I felt it was natural to learn about indexing, retreival, searching and organization. Much of what I have learned as a librarian, I find I can apply to many different scenarios both at work and at home.

There is also a great deal of knowlegde and skill available at other professions that I would loved to have learned as a part of my education and training.


My current occupation is at the Nordic ecommerce company, handling deviations on goods movements as a member of the backoffice team.

Most of my daily work centers around using SAP ERP and SAP EWM for handling goods movement and deviations which arises in the flow of goods.
