Comment on God Save the Queen…From DRM by Vic

After, 46 years in computer/cyberspace/technology businesses I am still amazed that even our great leaders who fancy themselves as sophisticated, technocrats still know nothing about human values, and apparently not even "technocracy".itself.

For some reason which I am not aware of, I am convinced that when the age of holography will become a reality, Google will be the pioneer of it.

Comment on There is a Google Data Center in Finland. There may not be polar bears. by Lennie

More than 700km (more than 430 miles) to check his mail ? I have some doubts ;-) (but I don't know anything about moose or polarbears, I life in warmer regions) Anyway, I do have a question: How many people does it take to run such a facility (or maybe you are not allowed to provide numbers like that ?).

since people had no humor and corrected, the thing with polar bears, its an old joke, dont really know where it originated but was there at least in the 70s already most have seen a brown bear though, they are quite common, whereas not many in number they quite often like to show themselves to their two-legged friends to be sure to see one, visit kuusamo (not during winter when they prefer to sleep) http://www.youtube.com/user/karhutv http://www.kuusamon-suurpetokeskus.fi/

You shouldn't take us Finns too seriously. The polar bear thing is a really popular myth that we always tell to foreigners especially the more south they are from. I'm sure they say the same stuff in Canada to pull your leg. I visited New York last year and joked about how there are sometimes polar bears running on the streets and people bought it, why not since it's not like they know about Finland. Once they visit Finland I think people will realize there can't be any polar bears around since it's not exactly arctic. We have only regular brown bears and moose/elks (difference is mostly in American vs British spelling), which are fairly common and cause a lot of traffic accidents.

LOL. This reminds me about all those Conan O'brian jokes of Finland... which Finns took a bit too seriously. :P

The guy in the picture is definitely a bull moose--broad antlers, broad nose, dewlap. Elk look more like giant deer.
