Welcome to the research section of The Sound of the City!

This blog is intended as a “working diary” for the “Making Of… The Sound of the City”  Here, we want to document the innovation and learning process towards the final product. Therefore, everyone involved in the project is a key contributor here. And that is why every thought, observation, vision, opinion, experience is relevant and important. This is a platform for everyone, so while the “curators” of this blog sometimes post questions for you, please feel also free to initiate topics and discussions. Everyone directly involved with The Sound of the City will get administrator access to it. Also, please feel free to share, comment, question, describe “The Making of…” in any way you want: Short comments, long essays, images, video, sound… To get us started, let’s do a round of introductions. Please tell everyone who you are, what your role is in TSoTC, and what your main expectation about the project is. Please post your intro below. The format is free — the floor is yours.

  2. Hello everyone! I’m Vesa Saarinen, a 33-year old MSocSc and a sociologist, currently living in Helsinki, Finland. I’m one of the curators/facilitators of The Sound of the City project as well.

    I’m currently within the Media Lab Helsinki of Aalto University (see, and involved with a project or two there. Professionally I’m a pro-in-communications in a NGO.

    I’m interested in Big Data, sociology of internet and in new media in general. Dreaming of a doctor’s degree.

    I’m really looking forward to collaboration – including the showcase event. We’re trying to build methods on Living Labs work done internationally using blogging as one of the research/working methods – and we’re thinking of different methods on how to connect creative professionals with Living Labs projects around the world. Stay tuned on that…

    I live in Helsinki with fiancé + little baby girl (2 months old) and a smooth collie dog named Mosse.

    And now – I’d like to get to know you! 🙂
