Hello Katerinuska!

Sometimes I get spam, and sometimes it contains an image that will probably cause my computer to melt down if I try to open it.

I received this an hour ago. It made me chuckle warmly for a second or two. It didn’t make me open the attached image though.


Podcasts for indoor living

I have been looking for some beneficial outcomes of the closure of most public buildings in Helsinki, and the move to working from home. I have found podcasts.

At the weekend I ended up with twelve that I have started listening to regularly. I discovered their existence by bouncing around the web in the old fashioned way.

Commonplacing: an extension of memory

These are notes from a talk I gave at a conference called Digital Memories, in Salzburg, on March 17, 2009. In this I look at the almost-forgotten art of commonplacing, and ask whether we can revive it digitally.

And whether we should bother.

This presentation formed part of the development of the idea of the memi, which formed the basis of my MA project at TAIK in Helsinki.
