roll call

When I started getting serious about writing the IR, I imagined that the readership would be predominantly American. In fact, Iceland-based readers have for some time made up the plurality of readership, currently at around 37%. In light of all this local support, Iceland Report would like to recognize recent readers from the following esteemed Icelandic institutions. Thanks for reading IR!
  • Alþing - Icelandic Parliament
  • Bifreiða og Landbúnaðarvélar - literally, Cars and Tractors (car dealership)
  • DeCode Genetics
  • Dómsmálaráðuneytið - Icelandic Department of Justice
  • Flugfélagið Atlanta - Air Atlanta Icelandic (airplane wet leasing)
  • Flugleiðir - Icelandair
  • Fréttablaðið - literally, News Paper (the free daily newspaper)
  • Glitnir - formerly Íslandsbanki (Iceland's Bank)
  • Hagstofa Islands - Iceland Statistics Bureau

There's one minor error:
Landsvirkjun = National Power Company (is majority owned by the Icelandic State)
Reykjavík Power Company = Orkuveita Reykjavíkur (is owned by the city of Reykjavík)

Also,
it sounds strange to say (or write) "Dómsmálaráðuneyti" and not "Dómsmálaráðuneytið" (with the article) - after all - there can be only one!
