Uppsala & Gotland Universities finally merged

“As Gotland university becomes Uppsala University Campus Gotland 1 July 2013, the Master Programme in International Management  will converge into The Master Programme in Sustainable Management”

Starting in the summer of 2013 Uppsala University campuses will not all be in Uppsala. Our newest campus will be on the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea and called Campus Gotland.

Uppsala University will be offering two international master programmes on Gotland, the Master Programme in Windpower Project Management and theMaster Programme in Sustainable Management.

Campus Gotland is located in the heart of the delightful Visby. Visby is an ancient medieval town where everything is within convenient walking distance. For more information about Gotland read here.

2012 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 3,100 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 5 years to get that many views.

Make yourself at home in Tokyo

Posted on

After my first encounter with this WordPress blog where I compiled some of my experiences in Sweden while being a Master´s student, I decided to continue with the tradition.Therefore I set up a new space that intends to share with the reader my experiences in Nippon lands.

I will be living in Tokyo at least for the following year 2012. More than boring you with data I will try to point out those facts that impresses me the most through the eyes of my camera since like the saying reads “a picture is worth a 1000 words”. I invite you to come with me and get lost in the immensity of Tokyo’s streets and the vast richness of the Japanese culture. Please, come in and delight your senses…

There is no need to be an expert to notice that social networks are becoming a milestone in media communications as well as a phenomena in sociology. Social networks have become a business itself which moves vast amounts of money focused on advertising and customer´s data trading. The giants of this sector are competing and teaming up to be on the top. In the last years Google has seen how Facebook has challenged it and extended its scope and reputation on the net to another level. Facebook now worth more than Yahoo and Ebay and its recent listing on the NY stock market was an extra platform to increase its presence and opportunities of growth. Despite previous trials of Google for setting up an alternative social network to compete with Facebook, the on-line giant based on silicon valley has not got it yet. Now it seems that Google is about launching what could be a real alternative, it is called Google+. As far as I have read it will include video chat amongst its features but I guess that talking of Google we will find far more surprising features, such as grouping your friends within circles.
