Edit in July 2011: This is an old entry from 2008, and carries little significance today. Yet still somehow it gets a lot of inbound search engine traffic, and especially the spammers seems to love it; posting all sorts of unwanted advertising to this entry. Thus commenting is now disabled for this entry..
Meanwhile go check out some places worth visiting:
http://www.mises.fi/ Ludwig von Mises institute in Finland. (US URL is: http://mises.org/ )
http://www.downsizinggovernment.org/ Cato Instutute's "Downsizing the federal government" some pretty damn good ideas worth also introducing to Finnish political talk decisions. Currently in July of 2011 we are living on debt like there's no tomorrow and taking in about 10Bn EUR more debt annually. This is the road to ruin, and downsizing our government can turn this deadly trend around.
Youtube video about why gold should be money. Persuasive arguments in there! EUR and the USD are fiat currencies; faith-based currencies of no intrinsic value. Is it really smart to go with only those?
https://www.facebook.com/CIEL.liberty the Facebook page for Centre for Individual and Economic Liberty. Like it, joint it. They post pretty good stuff all the time.
http://whiskeyandgunpowder.com/ Whiskey and Gunpowder. Independent thinking.

I'll be speaking on Thursday 6th of November at this event. It's been organized by a bunch of public and such Finnish tech-industry houses, like; VTT, Otaniemi.fi, Technopolis, Helsinki University of Technology, and oddly enough even the centre for metrology and accreditation is one of the organizers.
Others speakers are from Kone corp, Idean, and VTT. The audience is about 200 people (last year) of "young professionals".
I'll be speaking about entrepreneurship, perhaps a few war stories in there, and how to lead companies into shaping the kind of products that the consumers will want in the future. You can register through clicking a link in the "at this event" url on the top there. Looks like the link generates a unique ID for some singup system so it can't be shared as a direct link ;-)
See you there, perhaps!
