It has been an active start of the autumn with several interviews and things going on; more on video than usual.
On 13th of October 2011 Finland is celebrating our second annual national fail day - a bold attempt to influence culture and attitudes. Trying to suggest that Finns could recheck the negative attitude towards risk and failure - and view the whole topic with a more intelligent angle.
The Finnish Broadcasting Company (YLE) also showed the video on their morningTV segment and interviewed mr. Petri Vilén on the phone. That's here (in finnish again, sorry folks):
The very next day I was also on MTV3 channel "Good Morning Finland" program again, this time talking about the upcoming changes with Facebook. In finnish again, video here:
Next year I will also be one of the people on stage in the Nordic Business Forum 2012 with sir Richard Branson and big names from Finland and abroad. They released the "teaser trailer" for the event yesterday on Youtube, it's here (in english):
Plenty more interesting things to come this autumn I hope! I have been mostly busy with developing Soprano Brain Alliance forward (we are still hiring, big time, btw). And working with a few startups on the side, as a kind of a hobby. Keeping it busy with mostly very positive things!
This theme could have gone on for quite a while, we just barely touched on the surface details. It's a shame that TV, because of the nature of its format, kind of automatically means that the substance will have a touch of entertainment and popular topics in there. And always too little time for it all...
Earlier today I was a guest in Good Morning Finland (Huomenta Suomi) on the MTV3 channel. I was there with Jaana Kurjenoja, Chief Economist of the Federation of Finnish Commerce. Topic was ecommerce and its relation to the structural change of trade; how it affects the trade of special items and how services are also transferring to ecommerce models. And how ecommerce is evolving.
