Finnish population

The freesheet Metro reports on a demographic shift. People born in 1948 no longer constitute the largest group in the country. Oh no.

Moreover, more people now leave Finland than arrive, according to figures passed to YLE.


Korean Law

If I understand a report in today’s Guardian correctly (and if Benjamin Haas, the Guardian reporter, has outlined the issue correctly) South Korean law does not take geography as its basis, but rather citizenship.

Every other legal jurisdiction that I have heard of bases itself on geography. This difference has immense implications for what we think about the relationship between citizens, the state, and the legal framework that adjudicates between them.

The Memi: a tool for pedagogy

This page describes the outline of a thesis proposing the design of a new tool, that embodies visual knowledge building techniques as well as linear narrative, to facilitate learner-directed education in a digital age: an age in which the gaps between production and consumption are breaking down, as are the supposed gaps between education and entertainment.

This page is also, in effect, the permalink for the thesis.
