At Stockholm’s Trade Show and Fair venue, Stockholmsmässan the tweens and teens rule the floor.
Rumor has it (but not their website) that it’s the first in Sweden. I will take their word for it. It’s my first visit to a fair aimed at youths so no one would be surprised that I might be feeling out of touch.
I don’t know the headliners though I do recognise STHLM Panda. They make thought-provoking social experiments around the greater Stockholm region with 131,000 subscribers. They’re available for meet and green at 4.30pm. That’s in 10 minutes from the time I am writing this. I think I will have to take a peek.
My 11yr old son has named Jockiboi, who are here too. They’re on at 5pm. I might have to see what that is about too. They have nearly a million subscribers. Hmmm.
Google has taken StreetView off road…and hit the trails. New name: TrailView, TrekView?
In September 2014 Google strapped their globular camera, aptly named Google Trekker, to the guy below. His job was to lug it along Kungsleden, or The King’s Trail in northern Sweden to let us see what he saw via Google Street View.

There are over 20 sites in Sweden that Street View has captured.
