Facebook Messenger platform

Speaking of walled proprietary XMPP gardens, Facebook introduced their Facebook Messenger platform and Businesses on Messenger.
If I wasn’t wearing so much tin foil on my head, I might be more excited about the Businesses on Messenger. However now I’m mainly annoyed by the privacy implications of handing out even more of your data to Facebook.

The Helsinki Distilling Company

The Helsinki Distilling Company (HDCo) is the first private distiller in Helsinki in an over century. Kai Kilpinen, the chairman of HDCo, gave us a tour and showed the basics of making whisky and gin. At the tasting part of the tour over at B-Smokery we had some of the marvelous Helsinki Dry Gin. There are still 26 bottles left of it at the Arkadia Alko if you want to have a sip of gin with the flavor of common juniper.
