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.

Ghost Towns & Virtual Worlds

This paper is a sketch of a problem that has arisen during the course of teaching multimedia to undergraduate students – a problem that has seemed to demand a philosophical approach. I will describe the problem and then indicate the ways we have been attempting to solve it. I am very aware that our approaches may, in many ways, be philosophically naïve, and I do not apologise for that.

It was delivered at the sixth annual conference of the Society for Phenomenology & Media, held in May 2004 at Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah.
