My name is Keijo Kortelainen, aka 2k, and I am the owner and CEO of Koulutus- ja konsultointipalvelu KK Mediat. KK Mediat is a Finnish based marketing and consulting agency focused on Internet and Telecoms (IT) solutions.
This blog exists for several reasons:
- To experiment…
I’m a geek and my way of living a dangerous life consists of testing code / applications with real users in limited environment. This website is something you can consider to be my personal playground - it is used as an experimental sandbox before solutions are taken into customer/production websites. So if you see “Call to undefined function()…” , “500 Internal Server Error” or extremely irritating adverts you know I’ve been playing with something.
- To share…
Another aspect of my geekiness is sharing information. I’ve worked in IT-industry since the mid90’s, the last 5 years running my own business. A decade has taught me a lot - what I know is harder to define than what I don’t know…
The contents of this blog are my personal views about mobile technology and mobile information society. Why such a topic? To be short:
- I wanted to blog about something worthwhile I have a very personal relationship and good insight.
Since I already write a lot (like about webdevelopment (in finnish) and search engine optimization & marketing) this is good topic.
- I have a long history with mobile application development and branding mobile services.
Currently main interest lies in Macromedia Flash Mobile environment / solutions, but since I know most techniques involved (ASP, .NET, J2EE, PHP, XML,XSLT, WAP etc) there is a change I occasionally blog about these too… Another set of interest is branding and marketing of mobile, premium content services. If you think this is kids play think again - ringtones alone are a global market worth $5.2bn in 2006, mobile games are expected to be 2x more.
- Finland is the official NokiaLand
If you haven’t heard about Finland then you at least know Nokia. Nokia is of Finnish origin (geek alert: same applies more or less for Linux, MySQL and IRC also)… What intrigues me is how Nokia did a phenomenal rise from a company that originally made car tires and rubber boots into the biggest cell phone manufacturer of the world. Since my father worked in car tire factory I have almost 30 year relationship to Nokia.
Hope you enjoy it and feel welcome to comment and give feedback.
PS. If you expect to find *classified information* about unreleased phone models, applications etc be disappointed - there isn’t going to be any such information.
