  8. 8. Sometu is a wide group of innovative, experimental, enthusiastic, keen-to-learn, interactively active and less active members sharing the same forum I could say that working with Sometu has become a hobby to me As to Sometu, You should remember that you should be careful what you wish for, because these wishes tend to come true : ) Pauliina Mäkelä
  9. 9. Timo Rainio For me Sometu is a place to learn as part of work It is a forum that blurs the distinction between traditional education and learning by working In the short run, this new kind of creative dialogue culture will take more of my time. But I believe that, in the end, it will pay back many times
  10. 10. Markku Silen For me Sometu has been a place with interesting people with interesting thoughts. In the future Sometu could be a more disciplined society for building new innovations. It could also be a place for groups with clear objectives to develop and pilot new concepts. We should create places where we can develop and share knowledge, and from where we can pass on our best practises to wider audiences. I’ve seen this happening in Accenture where our organization grew from 20,000 to 200,000 people.
  11. 11. Harto Pönkä Sometu is a set of people sharing a common interest. With some of Sometu’s members I also interact through other social networks. People who are following things in Sometu contain hidden social potential. Sometu is offering an audience for what I do. Most of the time on Sometu I’m following what is happening but I try to be in an active role too. Being active will give me a response from others. The more you share about yourself the more everyone benefits.
