Living the Extremes
How I Left The Information Society, My Business, and GNU/Linux
Why Nokia failed with mobile phones? Santeri Kannisto’s autobiography is a highly critical insider story that challenges the values of the information society and takes the reader to the backstage. The most important question is whether development is as inevitable as we think. Santeri found his happiness elsewhere. He quit his business, SOT Finnish Software Engineering Ltd, after a 13-year career. He left everything behind, got married for the third time, and became a digital nomad.
