The Well of Light

https://flic.kr/p/ywTDUd
This building is one of the hidden gems in Helsinki. There are few others that have been built like this and all of them are hidden inside locked yards. OpenHouseHelsinki is one of the ways to find these wonderful yards.

It is cool, but doesn't it look a bit like being at the bottom of a well?

Today in History: Apple II Computer Debuted at Computer Faire
On April 16, 1977 — 38 years ago today — the Apple II debuted at the first West Coast Computer Faire. The Faire was organized by Jim Warren of The Homebrew Computer Club, which was an early computer hobbyist group in Silicon Valley that included Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak (the founders of Apple). In order to launch the Apple II as a consumer product (rather than just a computer for hobbyists), Jobs understood that the product needed to look “simple and elegant,” enclosed in a sleek case made of light molded plastic  — not something that could be fabricated in a standard metal shop — and that such design would require significantly more capital than they could borrow, so Jobs attracted investor Mike Markkula (a 33 year old, retired millionaire who had made money on his stock at Fairchild). Markkula ended up playing a critical role at Apple for the next 20 years; he shared Jobs’s vision of Apple building a product to revolutionize the world and bring the power of computing to every individual. The Apple II was the first product offering in this direction.

At the doorstep of a lunatic asylum
On a crisp autumn day I stepped in to the lunatic asylum of Lapinlahti at Helsinki and found the atmosphere to be quite relaxing. The asylum has been decommissioned several years ago and converted to children's daycare center and some other things.
