In February and March I wrote a number of blog posts compiled in the entry EU social market economy and social pillar . It is time to register the progress of the social dimension and the social pillar of the European Union, but let us first return to the public consultation after a reminder of one of the aims of the EU, as laid down in Article 3(3) TEU: a highly competitive social market economy, aiming at full employment and social progress . While we are at it, why not recall the horizontal...

Yesterday we looked at the European Union asking EU citizens , without the focus, resources or intent to act on the feedback, either on the fundamental issue of ownership (democracy) or more specific questions of individual policies. I wonder if the democratic conventions proposed by the French president Emmanuel Macron have been designed to be more effective channels of citizens’ political will than the public relations part of the Commission’s Future of Europe project, including the...

Serendipity is stumbling across a Facebook presentation of Mathew Lowry’s blog post The limits of public participation in policy . I had tried to explore how the future presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron started presenting and returning to the idea of democratic conventions and if president Macron’s Sorbonne speech had clarified the working of these democratic conventions . Macron had painted the democratic conventions as an essential tool to relaunch the European project. However, they...

"Why are you taking photos of books?" has been a question I have heard several times after I started actively posting to my bookstagram account. For me, it feels like a no-brainer to take pictures of books -- they are beautiful and I spend a lot of time with them. I collect them, I fall in love with them, I entertain myself with them. And most importantly, I love sharing my love for books with book lovers. The bookstagram community has blown up massively in the last couple of years and it has...

In the latest blog post we saw that Emmanuel Macron proposed democratic conventions to relaunch Europe , at least from the start of the En marche ! movement. As we saw, he has returned to this idea a number of times, but the substance remained vague ahead of the president’s speech at the Sorbonne. The lack of clarity impacts the possibilities to discuss many issues related to the initiative regarding the role of EU citizens, the “democratic conventions”, so our next job is to check if...

After the latest State of the Union (SOTEU) 2017 blog posts looking at EU citizens, reform and future and Citizens’ Dialogues ,  we recall that public opinion - despite the clunky Eurobarometer questions - seems to have been ahead of the EU27 heads of state or government, at least until the openings in the Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker’s SOTEU address SPEECH/17/3165 and the French president Emmanuel Macron’s Sorbonne speech ( English summary ) gave the leaders some impetus...

The blog post State of the Union: EU citizens, reform and future offered enlightened and responsible EU citizens references to the substance of the discussion about areas of EU reform and visions for the future of Europe. But we are hardly done with the European Commission’s State of the Union 2017 web page , or even the State of the Union 2017 brochure , where the pages from 97 to 101 offer a superficial glance at Citizens’ Dialogues. The Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker launched a...

Our customary check of the European Commission’s State of the Union 2017 web page , reveals no visible updates since yesterday and the language selection remains one out of twenty-four: English only. We return to the State of the Union 2017 brochure , where the next section is Citizens’ Dialogues (from page 97). According to the brochure (page 98), there had been 312 Citizens’ Dialogues in all in the member states since the start of the Juncker Commission; of these 129 on the future of...

There are no new visible updates on the European Commission’s State of the Union 2017 web page , still only in English. We turn to the State of the Union 2017 brochure , where the next section is called The European Solidarity Corps: One Year on (from page 89). By 2020: The aim is to have 100,000 young people taking part in the European Solidarity Corps. To achieve this ambition, the Commission proposed in May 2017 to give the European Solidarity Corps a budget of more than €340 million for...

The State of the Union 2017 web page of the European Commission offers us materials and some updates concerning policy initiatives relating to the Commission Work Programme (CWP) 2018. In addition, a few novelties on the economic front are worth mentioning.

The things to do on Saturday night. #habitare2017 preparations! As I don't own a car, and I know the sedan in use won't be too big, and there's only limited time to pack everything - I got the measurements of ths backspace of the car, marked it on the floor with tape and started playing this 3d tetris :) Oh, and I know it's not a cube but narrows to the top, but this gives some idea how to fit everything. #artistlife #workingday #workdiary #compressedart Henkilön Päivi Hintsanen...

If I wasn't me, would you still feel me? Like on my worst day? Or am I not thirsty, enough? I don't care about the lights or the beams Spend my life in the dark for the sake of you and me Only way to go is up, skin thick, too tough Nine...

Leonard Lapin: Estonian Forest, 1994/2017. Virolaisen taiteilijan Leonard Lapinin vuoden 1994 teossarjaan kuuluva installaatio  "Virolainen metsä" on istutettu uudelleen Tarton taidemuseoon (Vanemuise 26). I should talk about the Nature poetry, but I find out thinking more about nature of   the  Poetry. In English speaking countries, the word "poetry" would get the crowd scattered faster than a fire hose. They hate poetry, because it's like intellectual shit, something which we don't need...

As I wrote earlier life regrets come in slow long intervals, reflecting undoubtedly the low tides of current life and raising to the surface old hurts, old failures. My youth was dominated by emotional trauma and lack of social courage and understanding. I fled to books and thinking, and there are worse hiding places, and partially through reading and thinking I did achieve a healing and I did return to the land of the living, to the world of acting and feeling, of touching and being touched. I...

Same tools and technologies, but slightly different focus areas. c-base is one of the world’s oldest hackerspaces and a crashed space station under Berlin. It is also one of the earliest users of MsgFlo with quite a lot of devices connected via MQTT. Hack weekend Just like at Bitraf , the workshop aimed to add new...

Last week I participated in two hackathons, events where a group of strangers would form a team for two or three days and build a product prototype. In the end all teams pitch their prototypes, and the best ones would be given some prizes. Hackathons are typically organized to get feedback from developers on some new API or platform. Sometimes they’re also organized as a recruitment opportunity. Apart from the free beer and camaraderie, I like going to hackathons since they’re a great way...
