Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
According to my sister who has done extensive research on the family, I am 1/8 Norwegian (Bergen) and 7/8 Swede (Gotland, Smaland, Skane).

My link to Finland is much more direct.  In 1989, some Finns published an early draft, in translation, of Elegant Technology (1992).  It was called "Tuottajat ja Saalistajat: Johdatus ekoteolliseen ratkaisuun" in Finnish.  How this happened is a long story but it left me with the very distinct impresson that the Finns were easily the best informed people on earth.  When the OECD report came out a few ears back ranking Finnish schools the best on the planet, I could only nod and say, "of course!"
