Helge: I did find this text from one of my blogs from August 2004. The story was written by someone else. I just copy pasted it for future use.
Helge: Sharing and participating in something cool!
Helge: Why am I writing? I remember the documentary about Justin Hall. He started a movement. At the same time I was writing "Wiirilä Werkossa Wiikottain". This site isn't online now but I might republish it one day.
"It was journalism, but I was mostly reporting on me. In the early days, I wrote about the web, on the web, because few from Tom Paine to blogs and beyond other people were doing so," Justin explains.
Helge: I wrote about people in the small village "Wirby the global village" and it's still a struggle to be personal on the web.
Helge: My motivation since 1995 was "to map my thoughts and experiences" from the small village were I'd been born, starting when I returned from France to Finland.
