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

The blog post Reflection paper on globalisation: Opportunity or threat? , which  introduced the European Commission’s reflection paper on harnessing globalisation COM(2017) 240 , left me with a desire to present the reasons of the Commission and how it wants to handle the internal and external pressures of globalisation, as part of the discussion about the future of Europe - #FutureOfEurope on Twitter. Profound changes We may be well or ill prepared, but profound changes await us. As the EU...

Tässä teille pitämäni puhe Nykissä täkäläistä aikaa sunnuntaiaamuna. Puheen osalta voin sanoa, että siitä valtaosa osa on runoiltu lennolla Helsigistä JFK:lle, loput lauantai-iltana ja Suomen valtion viralliset tahot eivät ole sitä nähneet ennen sen pitämistä, joten vastuu virheistä ja latteuksista on jotakuinkin yksin minun.

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...

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 [...]

Our discussion about the European Council (EUCO) and the new Leaders’ Agenda for thematic meetings continued with a look at the briefings from the  European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS) and the EUCO conclusions of 19 October and EU27 conclusions 20 October 2017 (Article 50 TEU), in EPRS: keeping tabs on the European Council . The Leaders’ Agenda timetable was described by president Tusk as a living document, apt to change over time, but let us take a look at the near future. Less...

After the 18 October 2017 tripartite social summit the president  Donald Tusk offered an optimistic view on the role of the European Council (EUCO) for the future of Europe in general and the deepening of the economic and monetary union (EMU) in particular: From all quarters, there is now a new willingness to energise and enrich our work, draw on new ideas, maintain our unity and increase the dynamism of the EU. I will be calling on leaders to work together according to a strict timetable on...

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: [...]

Good Knit's Road - Hyvänneuleentie 7 -

Summit-huivin ohje löytyy uusimmasta Knitty.comista . Oli pakko kokeilla ohjetta, aaltoileva reiällinen kuvio oli niin houkutteleva. Mietitytti miten mallineule on toteutettu, ja helppohan se oli. Olen tykästynyt vaihteeksi kaulaan kiedottaviin huiveihin ja siksikin tein tästä näin kapean. Toiseksi kokeilin ohjeesta poiketen ainaoikeaa, koska alkuperäisessä ohjeessa reunat käpristyvät. Lankana on Noron Kureyon Sock , josta neuloin ensimmäistä kertaa. Lankaa olen hillonnut...

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...

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...

I have been postponing the writing of an important essay all week. been doing nothing but being happy and enjoying the life I have wrapped around my hands. I wrote here the last on 13th of November. Now it's 15th of December and I am in quite a different place. About a week after writing the piece I broke up with O, for I had realized through various events that I was indeed hopelessly in love with another person. A real turning point was Slush , a heavy-duty Markku-event we sort-of crashed. On...

Ukraine: Many hitchhikers say it's dangerous to hitchhike in Ukraine. Though, if your Russian is good enough, and you feel like it: just go for it! When hitchhiking in Ukraine do not be surprised if you are occasionally asked for money from drivers. It is not often, however, but it occurs. The state of the roads are pretty dire in general, and the biggest problem is the distances involved are usually pretty big (for example Lviv to Kyiv is around 550km. In winter Ukraine can get very cold, for...

Well, well. You can't say no to good party, can you? Not hangovered, but slightly tired, I got out from bed rather late today. Yesterday's party was nice: good food, lovely cake, cheerful people and splendid music. And of course some dancing (I guess I simply love every party that involves dancing). I wouldn't regard myself as a party animal, but sometimes good parties are the spice of life. To rephrase it, I might not be a party animal, but maybe a social animal. I just love to mix and mingle...

I have just come across an essay I hope everybody will read. Here´s just the beginning: THE PRESIDENT: Good evening. It is a very good evening for me. I am still an obscenely wealthy and powerful autocratic leader of a nation of sheeple who falsely believe they are free. While I am surrounded by misery and suffering, I make this presentation of shameless propaganda from a comfortable, beautiful stage set while surrounded by an entourage of thugs who assure my safety. I am speaking to you from...

Flaky detection and awkward menus seriously hamper this dance fitness game. The Good High-energy workouts   Jazzy neon visuals. The Bad Inconsistent movement detection   Awkward menu interface   Unreliable online play. It's a no-brainer: dance-fitness craze Zumba is good exercise. Try not working up a sweat mimicking the up-tempo jigging of a Zumba instructor, successfully or otherwise, and so much the better if you enjoy the cheesy tunes. But what makes Zumba a vigorous aerobic workout also...

Dili Days Decrease -

I haven't been updating my blog properly for a while, so I haven't reported that it was not only Dili in turmoil, but we had some terrifying incidents here in Helsinki too. These things happened around 1st of May celebrations, which are a really big thing here, but I missed them this year because of an irritating deadline for a conference paper, set very untoughtfully to 1st of May (no cultural sensitivity there!). Robin has been covering both Dili and Helsinki incidents in his blog, so look...
