The summer goes on in Helsinki this month. Just checked the weather forecast and the sun will be here for the foreseeable future.

Tech in a Madrid Café in 2003

Madrid Café 2003
Madrid Café 2003

This is what I used for on-the-go tech in 2003 sitting in a café in Madrid. A Psion 5mx and a brick Nokia mobile phone  The Psion had a great form factor that had a keyboard that was just big enough for touch-typing and small enough to fit into a jacket pocket. It also had the wonderful benefit of being distraction-free. 

Not forgetting the camera, a Canon Powershot S30. A remarkably pocketable device for the time.

Yellow Boat heading out in the Baltic Sea – Helsinki Finland – 08 May 2017

Biking to work yesterday, I caught this scene of a boat heading out to see on a Monday Morning. The mixture of the clouds, sea, the tree line on the shore and the yellow boat was a look that I liked.
