origins

Oseberg_ship_-_IMG_9186erik, oseberg’s cofounder, and i have a little scandinavian blood running through our veins. each of us is 100.00% norwegian, to be exact. our grandparents were craftsmen, wheat farmers, blacksmiths, copper miners, fishermen, and whalers. they maintained wet shirts and callouses on their hands from honest work. longfellow said it best: they looked the whole world in the face, for they owed not any man. in the early 1900s they ventured to america to embark on a “viking.” in old norse, a viking means “expedition.” a trip with a purpose, a mission. a voyage. and in 2011 the memory of our ancestors called us to embark on our own viking: to explore the intersection of computer science and oil and gas. but we first needed a ship.
