Today on the WordPress dashboard I saw ‘strange maps’ appear in the top WordPress.com blogs of the day. I’m not very much into geography or anything, but there are definitely some cool maps there. Take this “The World According to Ronald Reagan” satirical map for instance. Also take a look at this one, it shows […]

I heard this today during the presentation of Marco Merkx from Orange on the Marketing3 conference in The Netherlands. I was following this on streaming video – long live technology – and I found it to be an interesting quote. It was related to their launch of Belle.nl, a mobile e-commerce that is targetted to women.
