I’m Janos Honkonen, a guy in my late 30′s from the Commie Reindeerland of Finland. I’ve been making my living in various jobs, including research in computational linguistics, wrestling rainbow trout out of hooks, producing a gaming program for Finnish TV, working in a psychogeriatric ward, sniffing acetone and grading the smell on a scale, being an IT peon and a translator, and doing over a decade of freelance journalism in the areas of technology, gaming, general interest topics, science and adult entertainment. I was also the publicist and the behind the scenes material producer for Iron Sky, a sci-fi film about Nazis from the Dark Side of the Moon.
My interests and hobbies include diving, urban exploration, writing, sci-fi and fantasy, interactive fiction, biology, political activism in the fields of copyrights and gender & sexual minority rights, wall/rock climbing, caving, astronomy, geocaching, knife throwing, photography, playing theremin in Älymystö, Viihteen uusi aalto / The Advanced Entertainment Movement and the currently defunct Radiokatve, video games, and amassing new hobbies.
In my blog you can find mostly photos of trips to nature, urban ruins, foreign countries and underwater plus random opinions, thoughts and observations about gaming, politics and other subjects.
