Hi there,

This is the personal website of Oskar Hurme, where my objective is to write about what I’m learning, as well as a serve as a repository for various experiments. As I’m getting older my interests are becoming varied, so the blog posts / pages can be about different topics, such as:

  • Move Correctly – this is an example of scratching my own itch – how to get better mobility and movement, both to increase performance as well as staying healthy as we age. The initial product is a posture and movement assessment solution using the Microsoft Kinect 3D sensor, and is targeting gyms, physical therapists and chiropractors.
  • HR / Payroll related projects and business process outsourcing. I have many years experience of global HR /Payroll implementation projects, and over 10+ years as a project manager in this domain. More information here on Linkedin or my Resume.
  • HR / Payroll related products  eg “HR /Payroll conversational agent”.
  • Feedback systems for life. I’m a huge fan of Tim Ferriss and experimenting with incorporating better feedback systems into my life. More on this later.
  • I’m also learning to program in Python. Currently taking this “Python Mega Course”  and this “Python for DataScience and Machine Learning bootcamp” course for example. I’m not sure whether I’d want to become a full-time programmer – however I’m enjoying the immediate feedback received while programming – so we’ll see.
  • Solar related – eg solar panel and installation selection. I’d want to use Python data analysis, visualisation tools to help consumers make better choices.  The benefits are that it’s good for the environment, while the payback on residential systems right now (Jan 2017) seems to be about 10 years, and quicker in commercial. Solar is also an exponential technology – eg Ray Kurzweil has predicted with current trends, the share of solar doubles every two years, meaning that solar should have a 100% share of the market in 12 years.
  • Dudehealth – that is experimenting with myself, learning about what works in health for me, and then writing about the results. I’ve been lifting more or less regularly since 2008 when I got a wake-up call – from Burger King….
