Tarina -

5 years ago a small group including me and Teemu Leinonen formed the Finnish Association of Free, Libre and Open Source Software in Education (FLOSSE). Although we did some great things the effort didn’t last because the people involved were not that interested in running a traditional association. As in Robert Putnam’s book Bowling Alone: [...]

I had to skip a flight to Lapland for giving a presentation due to the volcano eruption in Iceland – first force majeure for me. Due to curiosity, I’ve been keeping an eye on the phenomena from the social media point of view. It is obvious that once again social media is playing an important [...]

Is This (photographic) Art? -

Ran into the concept of artworld and its interesting definitions. One specifically caught my attention, namely one by Howard Becker ( Art Worlds . Berkley : University of California Press, 1982). The basic idea is that artworlds are communities of networked individuals and that art is collective actions within the community. To blend in some Forrest Gump - Art is what artist does, sir! Thinking it like this makes it easier to accept that there no (and can't be) specifiq measures on defined...

Mobile Internet As It Is -

At the end of the January comScore released interesting report: Social Networking Services are driving the growth of Mobile Internet in Europe.This is many ways interesting as it tells that mobile phone users are not just consuming and using one-way published content, like news, but also using their mobile phones to communicate and participate.Many Social Networking sites, like Facebook, has

Helsinkiin avattiin uusi hampurilaisravintola viime perjantaina. Eikä mikä tahansa bursakiska vaan paikka, johon jonottiin jo ulkopuolella ennen oven avaamista lounasaikaan. En valitettavasti ehtinyt avajaishulinaan työmatkan takia mutta sunnuntai iltapäivällä käännettiin Audin nokka kohden Kurvia ja Kulmavuorenkatu 4 metsästämään sitä täydellistä burgeria. Ja edelleen siellä oli jonoa! Master Chef 2012 voittaja Mika Pikkis Tuomonen on uuden Social Food Burgerjointin takana...

This round-up blog post has a simple main purpose. It brings together a dozen recent entries, published between 23 February and 5 March 2017 on three blogs, in English (EN), Finnish (FI) or Swedish (SV), about the EU social market economy and the European pillar of social rights. Överhusets inre marknad (SV) House of Lords or European Single Market?

Second Life Blog by Aino Kanto -

The Finnish Adult Education Centre (of the City of Helsinki) has started a project dealing with interactive and social media web tools and facilities. I have made some notes about the early plans and goals about the project in this blog (see more from my notes at 2007 Nov 3rd).The goals have been changed a bit during these several months (actually the first ones go back to one year almost) and

This post tries to briefly explain the little known various styles of Bhutanese music which you can hear blasting from the local radio stations every day. Religious music is in a category of its own, with sacred dances and monastery music - here I will only focus on folk and popular music. B-pop Starting with the newest form: B-pop , a style "invented" by a local music studio in Thimphu called M-Studio . They have produced several hits during their few years of existence, most famously...

Christmas, the most commercial religious holiday of all is approaching. One might think that the materialistic, carnevalistic celebration of religious holidays would not have reached Bhutan yet – wrong. The two tsechu s, religious festivals I have testified in Thimphu, the capital and in Bumthang, Central Bhutan have had a vast selection of attractions outside the official programme of sacred dances ( cham ): gambling, drinking, dancing girls...you know, the usual things you would associate...

Achievements have ruined me and my gaming. Two of my favourite XO games at the moment, GTA IV and Burnout Paradise, are something they call "free roaming" games. So I supposedly should enjoy all kinds of random tomfoolery without having the pressure of earning points or completing any kinds of goals. Yes, supposedly. So how is it that I've spent the last three days in activities such as walking around Liberty city with a pigeon map in the one hand and a 30 hour timer in the other? I know I'd...

Tanaan pidettiin puheet kolmannessa komiteassa agendan kohtaan 60 sosiaalisesta kehityksesta. Lahes kaikki maat ottivat kantaa, suurin osa hyvin samalla tavalla. Taman kohdan alaisuuteen kuuluu myos nuorisoasiat. Nuorisodelegaateista kaikki paitsi Malta ja Romania saivat pitaa puheen maansa puolesta. Ainoastaan Ruotsia ja Norjaa sensuroitiin etukateen. Liikuttavaa yhteishenkea, nyokyttelya ja hymistelyahan se pitkalti oli, silla kukapa hyvia asioita kyseenalaistaisi. Piristavaa oli tietyst...

Helix's Egocentric Speech to Imaginary Friends -

I'm not sure if it was a good idea to join Facebook. It's kind of too real... But hey, on the other hand, it's a nice toy for a while. And I really like the iLike music application. Seems that I'm an unfriendly, self-centered, anti-social bitch after all. Keeping a blog for myself and murmuring about reality? Why don't I just scratch that stuff to my paper diary? Answer: Can't hold a pencil ;-) Is it necessary to express yourself all the time?? Answer: Seems that it is... Tomorrow I'll go out...

Bhutanese people often ask how do I like Bhutan, adding that "it must be very different from your country".  Actually, in many ways, it isn't.  Just to name a few common things between Finland and Bhutan:  Forest coverage in Finland: 78 %, in Bhutan: 72 % People are modest and don't like bragging about themselves Showing emotions is not common, and talking about them is even less common And finally, alcohol consumption is high (highest in South Asia), and the people who drink, drink a lot...

Jäätä ja lunta, jumalaton määrä isoja ötököitä, mechamaisia taistelukoneita sekä ilkeitä avaruuspiraatteja. Capcomin markkinamiehet tiivistivät konseptin kahteen sanaan: "Halo japanilaisille". Ja mikä jottei - pelin demo osoitti, että PR-hypellä on allaan siivet jotka saattavat jopa kantaa. Lost Planetin tarina on tasalaatuista sci-fi kauraa; jengillä on ollut tekosyy kolonisoida kaukainen planeetta ja pian alkaa tietenkin paukkua ja tapahtua, kun Akrid-heinäsirkkaoliot...

Since serveral technology and social media conferences suffer from the lack of female speakers, organizers, and participants, it has become common to put together an obligatory panel on the ”female perspective in technology”. When I first heard there is a...

For the past five years, I've been exploring social and business models around objects. Objects - the people, places and things in our lives - each have stories. Things around us can tell us many things from informational and historical...

During the last two weeks my lunches have mostly consisted of apples, porridge or bread with spread cheese and/or sardines. Besides the end of delicious free meals with loads of rice, oil and fish at work, the month of Ramadan in Senegal means that everything slows down when people are more tired due to fasting during daytime. August is one of the hottest months in the region of Thies where I am located, and this does not make fasting easy. Yesterday the rain cooled the temperature to a level...

Last week-end I visited the city of Touba : the holy city of Mouridism , the second-biggest Muslim brotherhood in Senegal and the one with most economic and political power...

Kenen YK? -

Tänään on YK:n köyhyyden vastainen päivä. Köyhyydessä ja äärimmäisessä materiaalisen puutteen tilassa elää käsittämättömän iso osa maailman ihmisistä. Se on kurjistava ja monenlaisia epäinhimillisiä vaikutuksia aiheuttava tila. Sietämätöntä on se, että maailma on hyvinkin vauraus, mutta vauraus on epätasa-arvoisesti jakautunut ihmisten kesken. Olen ollut pari päivää töiden puolesta Suomen EU-puheenjohtajuuskauden ja Euroopan komission järjestämässä Round...

Helix's Egocentric Speech to Imaginary Friends -

In the news we were warned about identity snatchers who collect information from Facebook and take credit cards on other people's identities. So, never tell you address or whole birthday on the net or what? I just wonder isn't the same thing possible also outside Facebook? Stealing passwords or credit card information has been popular for years. Also making fake identity cards for example to get into a restaurant or escape from a poor and violent homeland has been popular for ages. There are 43...

Why won't the Holy see? On very select occasions does organised religion affect my life; at birth, when friends get married, at my sister's communion, when a close relative dies. I don't dislike strongly religious people, but I can't say I like some of the organisations they belong to, either. Every now and then, though, some of them cross the line. Just a few months ago, I was, along with all other homosexual men and women, categorically condemned by the Holy See as having "no social value"...

Skew me, skew you. I'm on a mailing list that doesn't generate much traffic most of the time, but when it does, debates tend to be heated. I'm usually the advocatus diaboli on the list, since most readers and posters write from a rather anti-establishment point of view. Today Mike kindly informed us of a boycott that's being agitated against ExxonMobil, Microsoft, Kraft, et alia, by the Finnish chapter of the Friends of the Earth network. As a firm believer in the power of markets as an...

The Venetian Alternative. The current centre-left government of Finland has brought into national focus an ugly beast that has already raised its head globally. The apparent unwillingness to accept change of the noughties is in stark contrast to the breakneck pace of technological development and social change of the 1990's, and indeed the latter half of the 20th century - although I'll have to go by the words of wiser authors on anything preceding the 90's. Are we returning to the same...

Kuten vuonna 1954 Ranskan parlamentissa kaatui ranskalainen aloite yhteisestä eurooppalaisesta puolustusyhteistyöstä, niin myös yhtä kunnianhimoinen aloite yhteisestä eurooppalaisesta perustuslaista kaatui ranskalaisten kansanäänestyksessä 2005. Lieneekö tapahtumilla muutakin yhteistä?

Kolulogiaa, kirkkologiaa – museologiaa… Maija pyysi kertomaan, mikä aihe on nyt sydäntä lähellä... tartutaanpa toimeen... Minua on erityisesti puhutellut - koko joulukuun ajan, itse asiassa - Peter Bergerin ja Thomas Luckmannin vanha kunnon The Social Construction of Reality - a Treatise in the Sociology of Knowledge . Tässä kirjassa puhutaan siitä, miten yhteiskunnan instituutiot uusintavat itsensä ja miten ne määrittelevät, mikä ylipäänsä on tietämisen arvoista. Tomislav...
