aka "Finnish Ubu", maintained by the visual and concret poet Marko Niemi, is a site worth checking for latest in digital, sound, visual, and conceptual poetry, Finland and elsewhere. The site as such does not have a consistent English navigation, but by following Marko's blog, Nurotus, you'll keep posted on what happens there. I'd suggest you check out at least In Another's Voice, a new Nokturno series where Finnish and non-Finnish poets read each other's work - leading to great cross-pollination of sounds, both ways. As examples of Marko's own work, let me point you to "radarman tracks tanks bang bang" (after Christian Bök & bp Nichol), and "exquisite collage or andre going solo".
