In HIIT -

Quite literally, with mobile and ubiquitous computing, every step we take, every action we perform, every word we say, and every gesture we use - the whole whizbang! - can in principle be recorded digitally and applied as input of some application, stored for later use, or transmitted elsewhere. To understand the full ramifications of this development must be a major theme of future research in ICT. For many people, this potential future is a cause of alarm. Indeed, it is rife with potential...

Terminal Mind -

Saatan hermostua helposti inhimillisyydestä. Erityisesti inhimillisistä äänistä. Vihaan sitä kun joku syö äänekkäästi, yskii koko ajan, aivastaa. Vihaan ääntä, joka kuuluu kun joku juo ja nielee. Karkkien mäyssääminen tekee mut kirjaston lukusalissa hulluksi. Vihaan kun joku kehtaa kahdenkymmenen sekunnin välein rapistella karkkipussiaan, vaikka syönti lukusalissa on kielletty. Hitto että mua ottaa päähän kun joku avaa muovipullon korkin. Inhimillisistä eleistä myös...

Back to HEL -

There it was, the human sea and the heavenly sun, perfect with picnic tables and popping corks. And there they were, the vast bins for sparkling wine bottle recycling. Child labour was boldly used with the lure of 'You get us 20 bottles and we give you a movie ticket'. It worked. 20 000 bottles got recycled, and this was only the sparkling wine department. We Finns are so pro with our alcohol. All hail Wappu, the First of May!

I Want Candy! -

Tällä kertaa aiheena Björk, joka on siis Suomeenkin tulossa nyt kesällä esiintymään. En varmaan ole menossa, hinta nimittäin on aika suuri, 70 euroa. Pidän paljon Björkin tyylistä. Paljon värejä ja jännyyksiä. Tällä hetkellä haluaisin itsekin paljon kirkkaita, värikkäitä vaatteita, varsinkin punaista. Ja punaiset kengät. Ja tuollaiset ohuet musta sukkahousut, joissa on jotain kuviota. Meikeissä tällä hetkellä (kesto)suosikkeina punainen huulipuna, matta (haluan...

Leean lukupäiväkirja -

Edited by Gardner Dozois. A huge collection of the best short SF of 2006. New and excellent stories, very enjoyable to read (alhtough it took two months). My favourites were: -Walter Jon Williams: "Incarnation Day". Children are AI's who get real bodies only when they reach maturity. And they are property of their parents, who can terminate them if they want to... -Kage Baker: "Where the Golden Apples Grow". A story of two boys in colonized Mars, I was very touched. The grass is always greener...

"Perfection Is Not A Useful Concept" Bostrom: We have to distinguish between positional and non-positional goods. In economics, a positional good benefits you only because others lack it. Height may be an advantage in men, but if everybody were three inches taller, nobody would be better off. Attractiveness may be another example of a positional good. A gain for one person implies a relative loss for others. I would contrast that with a trait like health. Your life is better when you are...

Why I am not a Liberal Note: I am using 'stereotypical' liberal opinions, which I reflect on here, and I'm well aware that these are by no means the opinions of all people who call themselves liberal. Here is simply a random collection of view points, which I've perceived to be fundamental to and dircetly connected to liberal thinking and which I disagree with from a meta-political and philosophical point of view. This is an absolutely biased analysis from an absolutely biased point of view...

Meille, kansalaisille, systeemisenä ongelmana ovat poliitikot, valehtelemaan kiihottuneina rientävät syöttöpossut jotka ovat siis selvästi vain näyttelijöitä, eliitin sylivauvoja. Laki sallii tämän näytelmän ja ihmiset eivät osaa olla enää analyyttisiä eli poliittisia, eivät osaa lakkoilla, eivät nähdä selvää eliitin vastakkainasettelua hyvinvointivaltiota vastaan - ja kaiken takana on ilmiö nimeltä Kekkonen, näytelmä, jossa ihmiset pakotettiin vapahtaja-narratiivilla...

So last century * -

So some of you may have noticed I've been missing from the blogosphere for a while now... the reason being I was pre-occupied with completing my bachelor of arts degree. I am happy to report that I have finished and am now free to do as I please! As I mentioned in a previous post, for my Final Major Project (FMP) I chose to use The Collector by John Fowles as my text and focused on the connection between the study of entomology and serial killer behaviour made in the book. As interested as I am...

Mirrorball in Flames -

I have, for some time, intended to write in English. This is partly out of my desire to taste and explore the language, partly from want of reaching more people than in my native Finnish, and also, to a considerable extent, from the fear of the language deteriorating in relative linguistic passivity. Bah! I detest the idea of unavoidably making many grammatical mistakes, forgetting articles or prepositions, and putting them where they just don’t belong. But hey, there’s an opportunity for a...

I've been feeling for a while now that I could begin writing about books again, so what better way to start than to comment on the best reads of 2014. I'm not going to do any numbered listing, just comment on the most memorable reads with some silly categories. Best YA Janni Lee Simner's Bones of Faerie (reread) and Faerie Winter Set in a postacopalyptic world where a war between humans and faerie damaged both worlds, and left wild magic among humans. A young girl set out to find her mother...

Babbling about movies -

Stieg Larsson's bestselling Millenium -trilogy is being transformed into movies. The girl who played with fire is the second part in the series, and continues the story that started in The girl with the dragon tattoo , the story of the hacker Lisbeth Salander and the Millenium -magazine's editor in chief Mikael Blomkvist. Lisbeth ( Noomi Rapace ) returns to Sweden after about a year's "exile" and immediately gets the "men who hate women" on her tail. Mikael ( Michael Nyqvist ) has not heard a...

Part of my world -

This post is going to be in English! Just for the fun of it and more so, because of the loo-oo--ng text I'm enclosing is in English. I have seen the light. I have been inspired. I want to share it with you! Some time ago I got this book recommendation from my brother-in-law. I haven't even finished it yet (I can't wait to get to the "Growth and religion" part!) and still it is mind extending. The book is called The Road Less Travelled and it is written by M. Scott Peck. It is "A new psychology...

Of course AI wants to destroy humans. AI is not conscious subject, it is only stratetigally oriented teleological hegemony machine. Only one hegemony solution is primary for AI, not human value. It wants to be hegemonical operative and humans will be only on it's way. If humans wants it to solve humans' problem, it will see humans as the conclusive problem. Because humans made the problem it should solve.    In Finnish Jokainen hyper-AI eli egokeskeinen metakognitio ilman biologista...

How many sportspersons have dated movie stars! How many movie stars have married industrialists! How many industrialists have family alliances with politicians! Sachin Tendulkar is nominated to the Parliament, his century is felicitated by the Ambanis, and his family wedding will be attended by the Bachhans.

It has been a long day. I have been working on a story that I wrote, and it changes constantly. But, at least I have something pleasant to do alongside drawing since today has been a long day; I've been reading swedish and some other school subjects, and my work seems infinite. But I am not going to stress about it anymore, just going to do something about it, and see how it turns out. The last act of Spoon River is still before us: like last year, we have party with the cast and it's ought to...

Sori, Oliver. Douglas saa turpaan ja lähetetään matkaansa, mutta muutamaa vuotta myöhemmin on tehtävä paluu öljyn, viiksien ja hiekkadyynien...

Nyt on tännekin onneksi saapunut jo kesä: eilen oli melkein 30 astetta lämmintä, joka puolella kukkii erilaisia kasveja ja trubaduurit kansoittavat sankoin joukoin ravintola Hoidon edustaa.

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...
