About two years ago, I set up a pretty complex Ubiquiti Unifi network for our medium-sized apartment building in Helsinki and have been managing it on behalf of all the residents since. Here are my notes. We have 39 apartments and several common spaces, with a building-wide network we purchased…

Pieni linjan vaihdos tässä hiljaiseloa viettäneessä blogissa. Olen aiemmin kirjoittanut tänne vain englanniksi, mutta tämän päivän aiheesta on parempi kirjoittaa suomeksi, sillä siihen liittyy myös suomenkielinen terminologia.

On nimittäin niin, että valitettavan harva suomalaisessa liike-elämässä vieläkään ymmärtää, mitä tarkoittavat termit, missä esiintyvät sanat “tuote” ja “kehitys”, joko yhdessä tai erikseen…

I’m sure that if you read this contemporarily, you’ll recognize that the headline is a reflection on the Twitter thread about 10x engineers. No need to review that now — I’m simply linking it for posterity. While it is relevant to ask what kind of cultural background and selection bias…

Is a self-driving car responsible for a traffic accident? Should a medical AI go to jail if it subjects a patient to a deadly dose of radiation? If a stock trading algorithm causes a market crash, should it be fined? Are we heading into an apocalypse and summoning computerized demons…
