The concept of Phenomenalog and the first prototype-versions were developed in 1994-1995 in Collaboration between Bjørn Nake, Birgit Leick Lampe and students at the Institute of psychology, University of Copenhagen, and the teaching of qualitative research methods, around the Experimental Home project there (1980-1999)
The continued testing and development of the HyperCard prototype versions has since 1996 been conducted in a collaboration between Steen K. Andersen and Kresten Bjerg, and intensified 2004- 2006 in the thorough redesign in its conversion to the new "REVOLUTION" integrated development environment, with the advantage of creating standalone versions for Windows, Macintosh and Linux operating systems.
Credit is due to the Institute of Psychology for hosting Kresten Bjerg also after his pensioning in 1998, and to Steen K. Andersen for his thousands of hours of voluntary work on the project. Students from Copenhagen Technical School have also contributed with some of the glyphs. Credits are also due to Scandinavian Tobacco Company for sponsoring the start of the project with 8 of the first Macintosh PowerBooks in 1994.
Credits are due to resources from the communities of "HyperCard" and "Revolution" developers, among these foremost Mark Schonewille (Economy-X-talk.com) Sarah Reichelt and her DateTime.rev collection, Richmond Mathewson for his Paint widgets, Eric Chatonet, Klaus Major, Mark Talluto and others.
These are the backgrounds for our offer of this application as a freeware and adaptable open-source tool, freely downloadable as standalone from WWW.phenomenalog.dk... where also future improved versions will be found.
For revolution developers there is always a fully editable version available at the user site, under the name "Kresten", Obs the "Help us to optimize--"button above!
This means, that the material is not copyrighted, - but any attempt to commercialise it for private profit will be considered as unethical. !!!
And we will gladly cooperate with developers, who want to focus on special application-purposes
