Halló humans on the Inter-net. My name is Iceland. I am an island, full of mountains and glaciers and hot water and sheep and many nice Icelandic people, who like to make music, and who are sometimes cold. (Maybe you have seen me on your tele-visions, or your Inter-net.) I have heard that many humans use the Inter-net to make friends, and to talk about themselves. I decided to do this, too. Iceland wants to be your friend.
If that's not enough to win you over—an entire country who wants to be friends—hold on, Iceland has some more things to show you in favor of itself:
Every Single Word In Icelandic
Icelandic Bands That Aren't Sigur Ros
A Blog About Iceland
All this is An independent a social media project, orginally created at the initiative of the Icelandic Tourist Board... using nice people and fancy machines.
