Journal (Blog)
During the Ph.D. at Rushmore University, it was mandatory to have a website like this, and to maintain a journal of thoughts and academic progress. Based on the positive virtual experiences, I decided to keep updating the journal as well as the website; however, please bare with me that the frequency of updates might be somewhat lower during my second Ph.D. in Computer Science at Aalborg University.

Feel free to peek in the journal for various findings as well as notes about different books I have read; for the latter the specific literature index below might be helpful.

Date Entry
6th December 2010 Ph.D. #2 is completed
12th June 2010 Demonstration of Sentinels in TARGIT on VLDB 2010
24th May 2010 New version of TARGIT with enhanced Sentinels
3rd June 2009 Sentinels on DEXA 2009
12th March 2009 Sentinels and the Formula That Killed Wall Street

Going back to my childhood in probably the most conservative part of Denmark, I have always had an urge to challenge the firm beliefs of people. Especially the people, that imposes limitations on themselves and others by telling what can and can’t be done.

I have fought some of these issues personally, not because of the issue itself, but because I had fun doing it. In October 2000, I got the first patent; this was a big achievement for me. I have heard people tell me that if I had an idea that was “so brilliant”, then surely others have thought of it as well. Well by definition I can prove these people wrong at least once now, and I tell this story whenever I meet a talented person whose potential is in jeopardy by such negativity by other people. For me personally, I think the whole concept of thinking something up that has not been thought of yet is fascinating.

In private, a couple of friends and I have started a rap band. We have been doing rap music for about eight years now, and to me it has been very challenging and rewarding. Challenging because I am fascinated by rap music, but I am not very musically gifted. Rewarding, because it seems whenever we get together, we have so much fun and inspiration doing what we do, that we come out with more energy in both professional and private aspects of life. Music has made me meet different people that I normally wouldn’t; this has expanded my horizon and my perspective on life.

So far my path has left me with more an ever-present appetite for learning and living.

The official homepage of Morten Middelfart and CALM. Computer Aided Leadership and Management (CALM) is an inspirational speculation on where mankind may be heading in the quest to leverage computer potentials for helping individuals and organizations to self-actualize their symbiotic potentials.

The time frame for this well-informed and provocative speculation on relatively near-term and more distant potentials is clearly within mankind's grasp. Dr. Middelfart argues persuasively that within the next one or two decades, symbiotic links with "intelligent machines" will surely leverage people's potentials, far beyond all human progress to date!

Altogether, a tour de force of well-informed contemporary insights and maturely reasoned speculation; affording possible stepping stones and a creative springboard for what may lie ahead. As has been said: "Man's reach should exceed his grasp; else what's a heaven for?”
