The ungoogleable Lars

The ungoogleable Lars
The Swedish word Ogooglebar was removed from a list over new words back in 2012. By request from Google. It means Ungoogleable. This is Lars. We met for the first time yesterday, but I recognised him immediately. He runs a unique online diary. It is handwritten! And because of that ungoogleable. I found the unusual diary a few years ago when I noticed a "glasspinne" glued to a wooden bridge in the nature park Slätmossen. You check out his diary here.

Excellent portrait!

He has an expression that makes you think he's up to something.

Yes you can tell from this fab portrait that Lars is quite a character Steffe.. how would google ever define a unique individual such as he :)

That is a clever idea. He looks like he is about to burst into laughter.

Great portrait! He looks like an interesting person (BTW: the link took me to a printed diary, though your link to the bridge in 2012 had a link to the handwritten diary). It's certainly unique these days to be ungoobleable!

It's tricky to navigate the diary. My link here works, but you have to press a year, say 2014, and then pick a month to the left on the page, from there you can open the numbered diaries. For example if you pick Jan (January), the first numbered diary is 6647.
