Opera CEO starts Atlantic swim
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 4/26/2005 07:54:00 AM.

Opera Software CEO Jon von Tetzchner has begun his cross-Atlantic swim after the browser beat its download target.

Tetzchner said last week that he would swim from Norway to the United States if Opera 8 was downloaded a million times in its first four days of release. Because this target was exceeded over the weekend, the executive has agreed to keep to his promise.

“Although I blatantly admit that my promise was based more on joy and enthusiasm than my swimming abilities and physical health, I will do my very best to keep it,” he said in a statement.



Tetzchner entered the “freezing Oslo fjord” on Monday and started swimming toward the United States, the company said. Opera’s public relations manager, Eskil Sivertsen, is rowing an inflatable boat alongside Tetzchner “as an act of guilt after making the CEO’s statement public,” according to the Opera Web site.

It remains to be seen whether the CEO will actually complete the ambitious journey.
