Finding metrics in mood

Stress – a king medical umbrella approximation of them all. More harmful than life, more reaching than death and as difficult to control than a Heffalump on cocaine.

Guess what, the darkness of stress dominated Middle Age might just be over giving way for the light of Renaissance as Moodmetric is here! To sort out our plight, they have forged us in the depths and blazing fires of Mt. Techmore the true lord of the rings – the one to conquer them all.

No, don’t be mistaken to regard it as another lifelogging device, this one is something more fundamental. This is response to the prayers for us who have been struck down on our knees so bad in the final frontiers of resilience that we had to crawl back years to be operational again. This is the tool for those daring to look in the mirror and fight not to leave even if they don’t like what they see, because the popular quick fixes do not offer hope neither humor anymore.

Again, if you think this is yet another heart monitor, activity bracelet, or magical ametist moodring, giving this ring a chance you are in for a surprise.

I was privileged to take a FTD glimpse into a day at Moodmetric. Let the poor-to-mediocre attempt to capture the essence of the day in a video speak for itself. Warning: Video contains harsh imagery and self promotion.

Finally I see a clear guiding light to the dark places within me that are the most difficult to manage; me. I see a sustainable solution to gain control over many different types of condition that were previously measurable only in lab conditions (and therefore also totally useless in real life too): autoimmune disease treatment, chronic inflammation relief, cortisol control, and maybe even unexplained infertility. I see also maybe a bit of fun giving my friends a lie detecting test to spot the psychopaths. I see hope.

Thank you Niina Venho and Henna Salonius for a one-of-a-kind FTD, but also strengthening my hope for better!

Se päivä, kun kun teko oli Kunteko

Kävipä niin auvoisesti, että sain tuupata perjantaiharjoittelijana itseni yksi orastavan talvinen marraskuun päivä kolmen työtelijään ja napakan kuntatyöntekijän moukarihäkkiin. Kunteko luki kyljessä.

Loppu oli kaukana historiasta – se moutoutuu hiljalleen vieläkin. Alla kuitenkin lyhykäisessä videossa jotain nostoja päivän teemoista sekä tunnelmista joltain merkillisiltä kukkuloilta.

Eli tehkääpä hyvin ja hurmaantukaa kunnallisesta hyvästä www.kunteko.fi -sivuilla. Uskaliasta saatetaan rankaista vaikka palkinnolla!

Kiitos Anna-Mari, Anniina ja Taina!

BPS Finland Reloaded

Remeber my previous FTD Family Affairs at BPS Finland? Guess what? They were nice enough to invite me over again for a re-run!

I will tell you only so much that my intentions were to shoot a regular video report, but in the name of honesty it came out so boring, I decided to do a something little different.

Just when you think you have embarassed yourself enough already, there seems to be something inside that makes you want to raise the bar even higher..

Please check out the video report below to find out what happened!

Damn you videos. You have not seen the last of me nor us!!

The still shots, however, came out all right, I guess. We jumped into these quite late in the afternoon, so a little more time could have made it possible to stage some more scenes. Below you can see some pic thumbnails.
