Today, Lisa and I started a little talkoo or "collective campaign" to improve how Finland and Finnish culture is represented online. Our goal is to collectively improve the most important articles on Finland in foreign language Wikipedias. We're starting with English first and then moving to other languages.
The whole thing starts with a list of a hundred or so articles. The campaign culminates on May 17th 2014 as part of national Talkoopäivä day. Read more about wikitalkoot.
"Let me reiterate: Water equals time and provides beauty with its double. Part water, we serve beauty in the same fashion. By rubbing water, this city improves time's looks, beautifies the future. That's what the role of this city in the universe is. Because the city is static while we are moving. The tear is proof of that. Because we go and beauty stays. Because we are headed for the future, while beauty is the eternal present. The tear is an attempt to remain, to stay behind, to merge with the city. But that's against the rules. The tear is a throwback, a tribute of the future to the past. Or else it is the result of subtracting the greater from the lesser, beauty from man. The same goes for love, because one's love, too, is greater than oneself." (November 1989)
