It is a small world afterall

Kristiina Helenius, press secretary at the Embassy of Finland in Washington D.C., called me this morning.

She just happened to be in Seattle over the weekend, so she caught the two-story package about how wireless technology is used around the world and what Nokia’s vision is for the future of wireless technology.

In particular, what stood out to her was the 41-year-old woman who sent more than 100 text messages a day. Although she said she is very fond of text messaging herself, she said not everyone in Finland is not that much of a hyper-communicator.

Helenius said she’s in town to launch of the embassy’s ProjectFinland.org service on the West Coast. She said many schools on the East Coast use it to learn about the environment, social change and global connection.

Check out the Nokia and Finland stories.
