2017 will be my year


2nd generation startup should not be called a startup, but a start over?


I don’t want to change the world. There is nothing wrong with this world. I want to help people to see the magic in life. That’s not changing the world, it’s just helping people to use the power that is already there.

As I told you before, I’m not a religious person, but there are something very special in this thing we call life. I’ve also realized one thing, it’s really not about getting rich or any great goal. It’s all about the journey. We all know how this life ends, there is no surprise there. It’s about the journey. In the end, there is no one more valuable than the other. Pick your journey and adventures, not your goals.

The year 2016 have been very special in many ways. There have the extremity of all emotions. People close to me have died, I’ve felt stronger love than I’ve ever experienced in my life. I don’t have a god, I don’t have any cause or purpose. I’ve simply been given the most awesome chance possible to enjoy this absolutely crazy realistic, super immersive experience called life.

2016 have been intense. 2017 will be even more. Yesterday I thought if I have to start drinking or something to numb my emotions a little. This, how I live, just feels like a continuous, totally insane roller coaster ride.

Every single morning when I wake up, I know there will be some shit storm or drama, at least one or two plot twists. I don’t know how common this is or is it just me who get too intense involved in my own life 🙂

Not complaining. This is very interesting and fun, but the downside is, it’s also very consumptive. I try to let my kids live the same way. No limits. Enjoy life. Most important, HAVE FUN! 🙂

Saara Aalto

I love music. I don’t watch much TV anymore, but every time there is a song contest I’m drawn in front of the TV. Saara Aalto is a girl with fabulous voice and skills, but she have not found the right place for her yet. Now it looks like she maybe found her place. X Factor UK final part 2 is today (Sunday) and Saara or Matt.

Saara Aalto had a “homecoming party” on Senaatintori in Helsinki. I just had to be there and so had 10 000 other finns 🙂 Let’s keep thumbs up for this evening. She have worked so hard for so long and I think now she deserves her success.

On my way home, I saw this poster, “think big”. I smiled, I don’t think I’ve ever thought anything small, but the stuff I got in my mind now, is just something totally different caliber.

Now I got three totally insane big “projects”, which I know at least one will fail, I don’t know which one, but I’ve been failing so many times that I’m starting to know how this failing works.

One good thing with failing. It’s literally the best lesson you can get. It’s a “hands on experience” on stuff that does not work 🙂

 Three big things


I want to change how the energy-sector works. I’ve been working in the energy business for the last 8 years and I can clearly see what is missing and what is the problem for the entire energy sector from taking giant leaps. It’s time for the energy sector to wake up.


I’ve been missing a social media solution for a long time. First I thought I just don’t find that app but it’s there somewhere. Now, I’ve been looking for a year and I still can’t find it. This is very strange, because now when I know what I’m looking for, I’m amazed that there just is not this kind of a app available. This is very strange, it’s obvious the world needs this. How is it possible nobody have done this yet?? I’ve done the concept on balsamiq but next step is to secure the idea officially.


I want to create a new standard for “hypercloud” solutions. How to decentralize cloud capacity over multiple providers and even be able to sell unused capacity from on-premise to the “hypercloud”. Something like AWS spot instances from on-premise to a hypercloud.


There are a lot more ideas, but I just don’t got time for all of them. One thing I draw on my wall yesterday was the fully integrated and intelligent home with dozens of data sources and stuff you can analyze from them.

Let’s say you have sensors in all windows and doors if they are open or closed, then you got sensors in every room sensing human presence. If there is a window or door open for more than n minutes and there is no human presence in the house, it sends an alarm to the family mobile phones, telling you probably forgot a window or door open. Same can be done with stoves or other electrical equipment. You can put sensors sniffing air quality, temperatures in every room, amount of light, collected energy from solar panels or static floor “collectors”. Basically, just fill the house with crazy amount of sensors everywhere and push the data to a nerd who will make a diamond service out of it for the future mobile world.

This is not a new thing, nobody just have made it simple and cheap enough for the big masses to adopt this. Maybe Elon Musk would be interested in this kind of project too. I’m sure he will change the world.
