I’m Janos Honkonen, an author in my early 40’s from the Commie Reindeerland of Finland. I’ve been making my living in various jobs, including research in computational linguistics, wrestling rainbow trout out of hooks, producing a gaming program for Finnish TV, working in a psychogeriatric ward, sniffing acetone and grading the smell on a scale, being an IT peon and a translator, scientific diving in marine biology, and doing over a decade of freelance journalism in the areas of technology, gaming, general interest topics, science and adult entertainment.

“All of old. Nothing else ever. Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”
Samuel Beckett, Worstward Ho

“The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.”
