My voice in the Web - about anything and everything, sometimes even nothing

Last Build Date: Sun, 22 Oct 2017 15:27:01 +0000 is seeking new affiliatesLarko

Thu, 21 Feb 2013 12:11:59 +0000

Anybody can acquire extra income by showing ads through an affiliate marketing network in their website, blog, e-mail list or messages in their social media networks. The income may even be good if you put an effort in it, working hard and consistently. For an avergae blogger, though, the money earned could likely be something […](image)

Open letter to president ObamaLarko

Tue, 22 Nov 2011 10:57:51 +0000

Mr. President, thank you for sending me all those e-mails through I subscribed to them all by myself and I can not blame you for spamming. Nevertheless, I have a couple of issues to talk about. It is not that I would get too much of your mail. Not too little either. You seem […](image)

Page refrehs in Google +Larko

Fri, 19 Aug 2011 11:24:07 +0000

Last night I sent some feedback to Google + about the current page freshing. As I posted it as a public entry at my Google + page I thought it might just as well appear here in the blog. Just for the record, I like Google + a lot. This is what I told them: […](image)

A happy commuterLarko

Sun, 24 Jul 2011 00:42:16 +0000

The Tallinn commuter train service is just great. I live well outside the capital and do not visit it too often. It makes sense to buy a single ticket rather than having a monthly card. I do not need to have cash with me on board. There is a card I can upload either money […](image)

Was Osama not dead already?Larko

Mon, 02 May 2011 11:32:48 +0000

As I blogged for three years ago, late Benazir Bhutto, the former prime minister of Pakistan, mentioned in a BBC interview recorded as early as November 2007 that Osama bin Laden was dead. As far as she knew he would have been murdered. That part of the interview was not broadcast by the BBC and […](image)

Fruits of an absent mindLarko

Fri, 01 Apr 2011 18:12:09 +0000

Due to a memory failure earlier this week I ran out of toilet paper this morning and had to inspire. At the corner store, buying – among other essentials – toilet paper, I detected that I had forgotten to pick my new bank debet card and the old one had meanwhile expired. I was lucky […](image)

Political Compass revisitedLarko

Sat, 26 Feb 2011 19:49:07 +0000

Last time I did the Political Compass Test was a bit more than three years ago. This is the result I got back then, together with coordinates of then US presidential candidates: I did the test again today with a somewhat different result: It looks like I have become a bit more libertarian (a slide […](image)

Real life is harmfulLarkoSmoking in bed

Tue, 18 Jan 2011 14:48:05 +0000

Related to a discussion about winter weather and road conditions, I searched up a post in this blog a few years back. Embedded in the post is a YouTube video about slippery road conditions in Seattle. The video shows cars bumping into each other as drivers in Seattle are not accustomed to snow and ice […](image)

Liking negative newsLarko

Tue, 23 Nov 2010 00:39:49 +0000

I am sometimes confused to detect what kind of news some people press the like button for on Google Reader. Deaths, accidents and other kind of news that are generally regarded as negative. What is there to like? For me news about somebody’s death is by definition a sad piece of news. Whatever they did […](image)

The giant cocktail party called social mediaLarko

This post is a part of my preparations for the  Helsinki-Tallinn Euregio Forum to take place in Tallinn on 14th and 15th September 2010. I am going to co-moderate with Barbi Pilvre a workgroup for bloggers, portals and social media. I have posted related links onto the Facebook page of the group. As Seth Godin […](image)

Twin city tourism in social mediaLarko

Thu, 26 Aug 2010 23:10:47 +0000

In my previous post about Helsinki-Tallinn Euregio Forum I wrote that I had not detected active usage of social media by any governmental or municipal organisation in Finland. I did write, however, that there is a growing interest in social media in administrations of Tallinn and Helsinki and it is probably being used “in a […](image)

Political gobbledygookLarko

Thu, 26 Aug 2010 18:10:04 +0000

The Russian president Dmitry Medvedev has issued a statement on the Kremlin web site about a controversial highway construction project through the Khimki Forest. This post is not about the issue itself but about the language of the statement. No doubt it was first issued in Russian and then translated into English. Be that as […](image)

I have been approached by Helsinki-Tallinn Euregio Forum to participate in the event which is going to take place in Tallinn 14th and 15th September. I am going to write more specifically about what I am going to do there closer to the date. My input is connected to the workshop “Bloggers, portals and social […](image)

An affront to common senseLarko

Fri, 13 Aug 2010 19:07:18 +0000

I discovered through a tweet by @DustyTrice (retweeted by @VilluiArrak) that the Ultra Conservative American political fart factory known as The Tea Party has produced this intellectually pervert statement, mouthed by Jaime Radtke, chairwoman of the Virginia Tea Party Patriot Federation. Ms Radtke apparently hates the concept of net neutrality because she thinks it is […](image)

I seem to be just half weirdo. Would have preferred a higher score 😛 ) You Are 52% Weirdo You’re definitely quite strange, but you can act like a normal person when you have to.

Just a reminder, regardless if you are a republican or a democrat: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress […](image)

I trust this guyLarko

Mon, 26 Apr 2010 20:26:10 +0000

It is easy to say that all politics and all government is bad and should not exist. Well, how about murdering your neighbour because there was no law to prohibit killing a neighbour? Or would you like your wife, sister, or daughter to be raped because there is no government to enforce a law that […](image)

Mon, 25 Jan 2010 15:42:16 +0000

New regulations are being discussed (via @doppelfish) in Germany about mouth gagging free speech in the Internet. My brief photographic comment about the proposed measures is as follows: Posted in censorship, Freedom of speech, Germany, internet(image)

Talking about ideasLarko

Mon, 25 Jan 2010 15:26:38 +0000

This would be a pretty accurate description. I would indeed talk about ideas. That is if there are any around. And if I would like to talk at all. You Love to Talk About Ideas You like your conversations to be deep and meaningful. You are not a big fan of small talk. You are […](image)

Red loveLarko

Tue, 19 Jan 2010 02:11:13 +0000

You may think so but I could not possibly comment. Your Love Is Red When you love someone, your love is intense and dramatic. For you, love is passion. You enjoy seducing someone and being seduced. You like feeling romantically overwhelmed. You’re the type of person who loves whoever you want, and you’re often drawn […](image)

As Google announced yesterday they are no longer going to censor their search results at I can now present evidence that they are worth their word, regardless what the real reason behind their decision was and regardless that I still have trouble understanding that they agreed to censor the results in the first place: […](image)

I am supposed to be sunsetLarko

Mon, 11 Jan 2010 22:54:25 +0000

This quiz says I am sunset. While that is often when I wake up (regardless of what time of the year it may be, hence anytime between 3 p.m and 11 p.m) I am not sure I would agree. However, the description is not totally wrong. You Are Sunset Even though you still may be […](image)
