I’ve lived around it, you could say, for my entire life. Sometimes closer, and sometimes farther away. IMG_6916.jpg

Helsinki is such a fascinating place after all. When discussing things with friends, there’s often been the topic of how different places feel, what’s good about each and so on. Helsinki, they say, is great if you don’t experience it every day – that’s what I’ve been told.

I served in anti-aircraft troops during conscription. That was mainly designed to fend off things threatening Helsinki.

During studies I went to Helsinki many times, although Otaniemi is located in Espoo. Back then Helsinki represented the street life, bar life and generally, “life”. As it still does. I almost daily commute through the downtown area, in Kamppi, switching bus towards Lauttasaari.

Here’s to Helsinki!

Me: a code enthusiasta, technology optimist, but also a realist. In my blog something like 80% of the articles are technology related - mostly in English and Finnish. I like to envision and ponder about things, how life could be, what we are doing wrong today, and so on. "Invented" a facebook -like system in 2000, as a short product pamphlet. Haven't yet realized the 20+ ideas that might have become big things. Maybe learning this skill one of these days!
