I did something that sounds completely nuts. I resigned from my position at Nokia Multimedia after just six weeks. That so because it turned out unfeasible to do what I consider sensible there. Better to acknowledge it in good spirit. There are some good people there and we remain friends.

Guess it’s time to try and make meaning.

Fons Tuinstra kirjoittaa Poynteronlinessa mobiilin laajakaistan hinnoittelusta. Hänen kokemuspiirissään hinnoitteluhaarukka venyy Saksan vajaasta 70 eurosta kuussa Kiinan kolmeen (Mobile Internet: How Much Will You Pay?).

I don’t know whether it would be appropriate to congratulate you at this point, however, I must say I admire you for staying true to your ideals.

Cool as ice cream

In a world where going with the flow is as convenient as it is easy (what a ridiculous way to start a sentence), respect is a word too modest to denote my feelings towards Jyri’s latest move. Giving up a senior position most techies would die for in o…

zengestrom.com on: Stepping down from Nokia

Jyri Engeström is an interesting, kind, and clever guy. I’ve had the good fortune to listen and learn from him on numerous occasions. I’ve been watching him closely in his latest project that recently landed him in Nokia Multimedia. Unfortunately,

May the creative spirits fly with you!

I trust your instincts, Jyri. Quitting HotWired was one of the best moves I ever made. Good luck — and see you soon!

I’m glad we managed to exchange at least a couple of mails at office during this brief period while you owned a @nokia.com address! I had no idea you were going to dispose it off so fast!
It is good to see someone pursuing his dream, and I wish you all the best. Hope to see you again, even if it is outside of NoHo…

I was surprised to hear the news but I trust your instincts are spot on.
