Digital Indie Publishing

Some of you might have noticed the thing we did in DocImages couple of days ago. Well, if you didn’t, here’s a short recap. (And here is an article I wrote in Finnish in our blog) I am getting sick and tired of the ever tightening legacy print death spiral and especially frustrated with their […]

Olympics, Day 11: The Reuters App

Olympics, Day 11: The Reuters App

It’s just an app. And yet,  it is our future. Reuters has an interesting iPad app from these games. If you are not familiar with it and have an iPhone/iPad, I suggest you try it out (it’s free). Reuters has c. 50 photographers in these games. Some photography legends (such as Kai Pfaffenbach) – and […]

Multimedia Production: DocImages

Multimedia Production: DocImages

Everybody reading this blog in the past knows where I stand when it comes to our future: I am strongly of the opinion that paper  as a medium for daily news will slowly fade out (actually, not so slowly…) and the future is elsewhere. Let me just refer you to my last post – and […]

Paradigm Shift

Paradigm Shift

This is not an eulogy. This is not so much about Apple or the man – Steve Jobs – either. This is about the paradigm shift he introduced which people don’t seem to get. And this is about our future. But: I cannot write this without paying homage to somebody I have always respected immensely. […]

Sucking the Marrow out of Dead Man’s Bones

Well, it used to be that you could tell the spring by the condom ads which came plastered on the ad stands in Helsinki… Nowadays, you can tell it is the holiday season when the publishers start sending their “we want everything: past, present and the future – and we will not pay for it. […]

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 […]

What the Hell Are You Thinking?

I’ve tried now three times to write something about this, but I just can’t do it coherently . Sorry.  It’ll turn  into a long whining story which somebody will try to turn against me …. and as we are talking about the national religion – ice hockey – so I really should watch my step. […]

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 […]

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 […]
