HIFK raced into a 3-0 win before Blues brought the scores back to 3-2. With just twenty seconds remaining HIFK scored 4-2 when Espoo had brought their goaltender off the ice.

The emotions run high when it stood clear that Helsingin IFK won the SM-Liiga ice hockey championships.
The Iltalehti photographer Matti Matikainen really showed what live publishing is all about. He did not just give the viewers full match highlights he also gave them a unique insight into the celebrations afterwards. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, this live photo feed contained 264 pictures.
Emotions baby, emotions.

Hope everyone had a Happy Easter and please, let me spice it up with some Danish delight. Last Thursday the world’s most famous royal twins was named in the historic Holmen’s Church in Copenhagen. Until the very end the proud parents Crown Prince Frederik and his wife Crown Princess Mary kept the names to themselves only to reveal the well kept secret at the last moment. The new prince of Denmark is named Vincent Frederik Minik Alexander and the new princess of Denmark is named Josephine Sophia Ivalo Mathilda. According to experts, this royal baptism will start a new trend of baby names in Denmark.

This week’s pic of the week has nothing to do with news photography but nonetheless live publishing in all it’s glory. Powered by batteries and a small wind turbine, an automated camera is placed on the roof of the Aurora Sky Station in Abisko. Every five minutes it documenting the sky over the mountain Njuolla in the Abisko National Park, giving us stunning photos of beautiful northern lights. The area is well known for it’s spectacular northern lights and if you´re interested in Aurora Borealis you’re in for a treat!
2011-05-04, Aurora Sky Station
The Abisko National Park is probably one of the best places in the world to find northern lights because of the cloud free sky and it's high latitude.
The live photo feed can be viewed at auroraskystation.se and the high quality photos are free for you to download and use in any way. Creative Commons FTW:-)
In the name of science
Throughout 2011, we will collect all the pictures and put together a time-laps movie which will extend over the entire year. We do this as a scientific investigation and we will donate the film to research.

The sun has finally started to look out from behind the clouds after a long and harsh winter, but it´s not only the sun that spreads heat & light. Last weekend the teenage idol Justin Bieber lit hearts on fire when he gave a concert in Herning, Denmark. According to eb.dk the 12 000 “Beliebers” (Justin Bieber fans) screamed so loud after a certain Mr. Bieber that it was impossible to hear anything at all.

Ekstra Bladet spoke with several fans who had queued for hours and their message was clear: We love Bieber!
Mobility is key
You were able to follow the entire spectacle from the lens of the Ekstra Bladet photographer Claus Bonnerup. With the ability to move freely (without carry around a computer, etc) Claus was totally mobile when he produced a live photo feed including photos of the fans queued up for the concert and the concert itself.
