Det var en bra tid

Jag har just fått ett stort brev från mitt gamla hem Finland .. Tack för en fantastisk tid och en underbar text i årsredovisningen.

I have just received a great letter from my old home Finland .. Thanks for a great time and a wonderfull text in the annual report.

My very first, very own (partly), ..


Yes, some of you have already seen my episodes from Finland (Hyvää Suomi 1-10) which I sluggishly called Podcast. But to be true the series wasn’t really one. It was a collection of wonderful stories of which I am very fond. Nevertheless I never lost the feeling that something was missing. Usually those stories came out very much after everything happened and left out a lot of little details. Production was to time consuming to do more of them. You really do not want to sit in front of the computer the whole day, when you are in another country!

And now I am wiser? Well, I am trying!

Together with Bene we will conquer the problem of forgotten videos, photos and thoughts to share. Since we will call us around the globe regularly and privately anyway we just decided to record what we tell the other one. Its easy right? Not really – In reality we decided to do some weird recording setup which includes:

  • 2 SLR camera
  • 2 Laptops
  • 2 Headsets
  • 2 webcams
  • 2 Virtual cameras
  • ..

Well, you’ll get the idea. The first episode was a test to prove that we can actually do this technically. We are sure that this is the case. Can we do this intellectually – well, that’s up for you to decide.

How do you like our way of sharing our thoughts? Should we change something? What did you like especially? How often should we do this? How long should it be? Should it be audio only, or should we stick with video? Please feel free to post your comments under this article or directly to the video on Vimeo.

The first episode talks about this podcast, our preparations in Munich for China and New Zealand, loads of clothing, chinese language skills, and a very special blue shirt. Interested – go ahead and check it out!

Podcast Trailer

Not too long and i will be publishing a podcast series of a special kind. I do not want to spill the beans too much; but can not resist to show some behind the scenes of the trailer production.

Thanks to Jeanette for assisting us with the “small” canon.

Knorr Bremse ABS Systems

On the weekend I had the great honor to be invited to the open day of Knorr Bremse AG. Apart from getting to know the diverse range of their products I have been amazed by their life shows. Highlight of the day has been the demonstration of their truck ABS system. Bein in the middle of pouring rain might have been troublesome for the spectators but the Trucks were immediately put in a much more dramatic atmosphere – It’s all about the pictures! Thanks to Bene and his Dad for such a nice day!
