What IF.…?

What IF.…?

In the past weeks, I have had so many conver­sa­tions on Reijo, rights grabbing, Sanoma et al. contracts… People are eager to know what is going on, but they are somehow totally lost in this. And the moment I try to explain it in abstract terms… I see that nervous flicker in the eyes — you know what I am talking …

Things which Make me Happy…

Things which Make me Happy…

The repulsive dog-vomit published by HS last week really bothered me (ref. to my previous post), then some personal hate-mail, the death of a someone dear to me… Put it this way: I’ve had better weeks than the previous one. I really have. So I thought: I want to share and write something positive. Show that life is not only gloomy …

Back to Estonia — 22 Years Later

Back to Estonia — 22 Years Later

I wrote a post some time ago about the Rock Summer 1988 festival and the experi­mental multi­media I did on that for YLE Teema. Then, three days ago I went to the screening of the documentary done on this same event called Eesti vabaks! Rockfes­ti­vaali joka ei päättynyt ( Free Estonia! Festival which never ended!) . But I had hard time …

A Walk On the Memory Lane: Rock Summer 1988

A Walk On the Memory Lane: Rock Summer 1988

This is not brilliant, far from it — but it is different, I dare say. Something I did now in the spring and finally I thought it is time to show it. Show that there are options — that it is not that hard to do something this simple, yet totally different. That there are possi­bi­lities outside the …

A New Era of Book Publishing

A New Era of Book Publishing

When it comes to multi­media, I am pretty hard to impress — since while trying to learn the basics myself, I have seen some great things being created around the world. Amazing approaches, beautiful content. Yet… Today I was blown away. Reason? This TED-talk by Mike Matas, describing a book they came up with. The book is called Our Choice by …

Photography Legends — Multimedia Approach

Photography Legends — Multimedia Approach

This is my first attempt on something that I have been planning to do for a while. A multi­media series of photo­graphers, legends of their own time and era… Pictures and stories behind them. Told by the photo­graphers themselves. I will try to make this into a series — would be pretty impressive to make a series of say 20–30 …

Forget Photography — Screen Capture Rules

Forget Photography — Screen Capture Rules

(Just updated the small image gallery I’ve been keeping from here) Two nights ago, I go to cover the prize ceremony of the men’s X-country 15km race here in Oslo. Matti Heikkinen is the first man to win this title in 12 years in Finland — so it’s big news back home. We are doing 11 pages …

QR Code: Rich Media to Meet the Legacy Print?

QR Code: Rich Media to Meet the Legacy Print?

I don’t usually get carried away by gadgets or techno­lo­gical innova­tions. Usually don’t hype about them either. I might talk about them, review them, discuss them. Yes, you can call me gear-head if you want — but just because of that, I’m also very used to technology. I am not easily impressed. But this time I do. I am. Totally. …

iPad — The Future of Our Journalism?

iPad — The Future of Our Journalism?

This is sort of an anniversary article: I wrote about the iPad about a year ago for the first time. A the time, nobody new what it would be called: iTablet, iSlate… No tech specs available, just rumors. I immediately said — then — that this would change world as we know it. We, the journa­lists. IPad got launched …
