Every time I go through my RSS feeds there are a few bloggers that keep amazing me with what they do. Somehow they stand out (more) and they are good at something I wanted to be good/better at as well. So here is my list, I wish I was a bit more …
… like Hugh Macleod and not only because I would be able to draw funky cartoons. Hugh is one of the smarter people I know and a natural marketer, it’s in his blood. Just take a look at ‘How to be creative‘, ‘The Hughtrain‘, his work for Stormhoek or his recent thoughts on ‘Social Objects‘ (and his cartoons of course). I’m happy Hugh is a friend though, so at least I can pick his brain once and a while ;)
… like David Armano / Alain Thys (his blog) for their creative thinking, and maybe even more important for the ability to present creative thoughts in a very clear, visual way. Make sure you sign up to the Slideshare feeds of these guys as I bet you will use some of it at least once. That is here and here.
… Ewan McIntosh, because he has some of the most refreshing views on technology. As a researcher for education, I admire the way how he can look at services such as Twitter (and many more of course) and come up with the most interesting ideas to use these.
Having written all this, it looks like the perfect start for a meme. Now I don’t take part in every single meme that comes around either, but I do hope that the following people would share a few names of bloggers they admire for a certain reason. So here we go (and make it global): Gavin Heaton, Nir Ofir, Marcus Brown (not only your alter egos alright), Valeria Maltoni and Tamara Gielen… would you do that for me? ;)
My name is Kris Hoet and this is my blog dedicated to subjects such as advertising, gadgets, interactive, internet, movies, games … and whatever things that interest me.
