There was a very imposing feeling at the Nordic Business Forum, when over 7000 people from over 40 countries gathered together to listen speaks about work culture, money structure, climate changing, motivation and courage! Among many other speakers Severn Cullis-Suzuki aka “the girl who silenced the world for 5 minutes”, Sir Richard Branson, Nick Vujicic and Will Smith nailed it!

Of course, we had bunch of new, interesting contacts and tried some new local flavors such as home crickets, prepared by Jyrki Sukula and his team.

Pokémon Go, Go! No 13

The Finnish Science Center Heureka had a successful Pokémon Go day last Saturday. Over 2000 players of different ages took part of the happening and chased Pokémons in the Heureka surroundings.

The theme of the event was to understand the phenomenon through gaming research by two leading researchers Frans Mäyrä from the University of Tampere and Johannes Koski from the University of Turku.

They explained the gaming experience and success of Pokémon Go and predicted, that this is just the start to location based gaming, gaming after the map information and gaming attached to the AR features.

Heureka Pokémon Go day Sat Sept 10th 2016

Pokémon Go, Go! No 10

To be after the Pokémons will be exhaustive, because the hard core & smart ass people of gaming noticed there are Pokémons that only live by nights. You really have to concentrate!

Have a full charged battery on mobile, supportive batteries in your pockets, or know the places, where to recharge. In Finland at least some churches announced having recharge stops and Tampere Hall gave out a newsletter about this lately.

Then, you have to have a day nap in order to recharge your brain energy to chase the Pokémon night growlers. Just like we humans, Pokémons seem to have characters!

 

 

Pokémon Go, Go! No 9

Did you realise that Pokémon Go makes you aware of your surroundings, clever, witty, streetwise and talkative?

It took over a month for a journalist to write about the cultural capital Pokémon Go is offering to its players. It is so simple but so obvious, the Pokéstops are landmarks of the area, often hidden and often unknown for the passers by.

As an inhabitant in this town I seldom go to museums or art exhibition, sorry about that, and I hardly know the memory plaques if somebody asks me to name one.

Thanks to Pokémon Go, the youngsters will be more street wise of their own city, by stopping at the Pokéstops they can’t avoid knowing the history of their neighbourhood.

Sata vuotta, sata reittiä – Tule mukaan!

Citynomadi Oy on osa Suomen itsenäisyyden satavuotisjuhlavuoden ohjelmaa vuonna 2017.

Sadan vuoden aikana on Suomessa ja suomalaisille tapahtunut paljon. Keräämme Suomi 100 -ohjelmassa vuonna 2017 maamme taipaleelta 100 tarinaa, jotka kerrotaan kartalla. Tarina suomalaisuudesta itsenäisyyden jokaiselle vuodelle.

Kutsumme yrityksiä, yhdistyksiä, yhteisöjä, julkisia toimijoita, kouluja ja yksityisiä ihmisiä mukaan toteuttamaan Suomen tarinoita. Mukaan tuleminen on helppoa. Kerro meille ideasi ja toteuta Suomea kuvaava reittisi rekisteröitymällä citynomadi.com-yhteisöön ja ottamalla käyttöösi WebTuunari. Muista kirjoittaa reittisi nimeen vuosiluku, jota erityisesti kuvailet.

Tavoitteenamme on toteuttaa yhdessä reitti jokaiselle vuodelle 1917 – 2017. Haasteessamme on kolme sarjaa:

  • yksityisten ihmisten sarja, jossa voit kertoa sukusi tai perheesi historian
  • koulujen sarja, jossa opettajat ja oppilaat kertovat koulunsa lähiympäristöstä valitsemansa näkökulman mukaisesti
  • yritys-, yhdistys- ja julkisen sektorin sarja, jossa mukaan voi tulla kaupungin kehitykseen liittyvällä tarinalla, henkilökuvalla, yrityshistoriikillä, arkkitehtuuriin, historiaan, kirjallisuuteen tai taiteisiin liittyvällä reitillä.

Tutustu citynomadi.com-yhteisön reitteihin ja kehitä omaa ideaasi. Päätä reittisi ja sillä sijaitsevat kohteet. Valmistele materiaali: tekstit ja valokuvat. Jos haluat, niin laita reitille audioita ja videoita. Muista tekijänoikeudet. Voit myös tehdä pelillisiä reittejä, joissa on kysymyksiä ja tehtäviä.

Piirrä reitti joko citynomadi.comin WebTuunarilla tai kävele se läpi Android Nomadilla, jonka saat maksutta Google Playstä.

Lisää kohteet ja sisältö, sen jälkeen julkaise reitti. Se on näkyvissä citynomadi.com-yhteisössä, Nomadi-sovelluksissa ja voit myös yhdistää sen omille verkkosivuillesi. Muista mainita reitin nimessä vuosiluku, johon reittisi viittaa. Näin olet mukana Suomi 100 vuotta –ohjelmassa.

Ilmoita reitistäsi osoitteeseen nomadi@citynomadi.com

Citynomadi Oy on tamperelainen yritys, joka kehittää Nomadi-konseptia mm. matkailun, koulutuksen, ympäristötiedon kuin kulttuurin sisältöjen julkaisuun. Nomadi-sovelluksen voi hakea maksutta osoitteella app.citynomadi.com
