Why Finland Leads World in Bitcoin Search Traffic

Why Finland Leads World in Bitcoin Search Traffic | Finland | Scoop.it
Interest in bitcoins has reached fever pitch around the world in the last month. But there's one euro zone country that's firmly tuned into the zeitgeist more so than even the U.S. or Japan.

 

According to Google Trends, Finland is the country with the most number of Google searches for the word "bitcoin" in the past 12 months.

"Finland has a very strong geek culture and tradition, DIY-culture and can-do attitude. Many digital innovations, like IRC (Internet Relay Chat), Linux and SSH (Communications Security Corporation) are developed in Finland," Vesa Linja-aho, an engineering and economics lecturer at a Helsinki university told CNBC.com.

Does Gender Have a Role in ICT Among Finnish Teachers and Students? - Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research

Does Gender Have a Role in ICT Among Finnish Teachers and Students? - Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research | Finland | Scoop.it
The digital divide between genders and generations in school, i.e., between teachers and secondary school students in Finland, was investigated comparing statistical data in 1999-2000 and in 2002-2004. ICT skills were intertwined with both generation and gender. Teachers were familiar with some traditional applications, students with new applications. Male teachers and students estimated their skills on a higher level than females, but in the second phase, female students' use and competence were close to male teachers'. There was a distinction between low use at school and high use during leisure time. In future, social use of ICT will reduce the differences between users, although the gaps between genders and generations in technical competence will probably remain.
