  4. Hi Kris,

    Many thanks in advance.

  8. Hi Kris!

    Although I was born and raised in Belgium, allow me to communicate in my adopted language and introduce you to my patented invention — a transformable jacket/backpack/pillow, known as Xip3 that’ll hit the market in early October, through our website: http://www.xip3.com.

    As we are launching this product exclusively through the website, we’re sending out press releases to the world’s best bloggers, in an attempt to start a global viral campaign.

    Please let me know if you are interested in featuring us on your site and we’ll send you any and all information you may request.

    Many thanks beforehand.

  9. Hi Kris,

    I found your blog through a Google web alert I have for “cinema advertising”. I work for a company in the US that has the largest digital content system for cinema advertising in the world (I think…). Cinema advertising is much bigger (and more accepted, it seems) in Europe than it is here. I work as an account director in Denver, Colorado and have some great clients. I love my job and the product. It’s a great branding tool for my clients and I really believe it helps their business – and my clients range from airlines to charities and everything in between. I was interested in your take on cinema advertising and thought you may be interested to check out National Cinemedia’s website, my company. Best of luck!

  10. I would like to send you a Backchannelmedia Mug and other items.

    What is your mailing address?

    We have built a software that downloads to the set top box, dbs box, or digital antenna.

    It allows for clicks from the controller to be pushed through back to the advertiser.

    People get a link in their email that shows them all of their clicked on coupons and special offers.

    We measure actions not impressions.


  11. Have a look at this Sony Bravia spoof…

  12. Dear Kris,

    Firstly I’d like to say great job on the blog. I find the posts to be well written and very informative (don’t worry I’m not some crazy fan.)
    The reason for my writing is that I believe the readers from my blog would benefit greatly from the information you provide and was wondering if you would be interested in a link exchange.
    My blog is at http://www.namecake.com/category/blog/ and is focused on Domain Name Investing and Online Business. I currently receive over 500 visitors a day (growing every day) and the Alexa ranking is: 228,000. The content I put on there is all original and each post I write is designed to educate and inform. The site is currently PR3 – but I’m confident this will move up when Google have their next update.

    As to your site, I would list it in my useful sites tab – under a heading you choose.
    I really think your site will benefit from the exposure it could receive from Namecake as the majority of domainers are small businessmen and Entrepreneurs who would find what you write about very useful.

    Anyway I’ll stop wittering on now, but if you are interested in a link exchange I’d very much like to hear from you.

    Best regards,

    James Stafford

    P.S. I am also going to start having guest writers appear on the blog, who will cover niches such as: SEO, Small Business, Web Design, Finance and other areas my readers can benefit from. So if you would like to write some unique and useful content for my readers that could gain some excellent exposure for you I’d be very happy for you to do so. You could also have a bio section at the end with links and other details.

  13. Hello

    I hope you do not mind me contacting you as I would like to introduce you to Augmented Reality.

    We have recently completed a project using Augmented Reality (AR) for Automobiles Citroën,
    giving internet users the possibility to interact on-line with the international C3 Picasso brochure.

    3 dedicated interactive pages of the brochure enable you to discover the new C3 Picasso in 3D.

    Using a PC and a webcam, you first download the application from the dedicated website http://www.c3picasso.com,
    and then enjoy an interactive experience using Augmented Reality.

    Once the application is launched, the user can present the C3 Picasso brochure to the user’s webcam, and
    the car appears sitting on the pages and that is where the fun begins, as the angle of the car will change according to the rotation of the pages.

    Also, the last page of the brochure enables you to change the colour of the vehicle in real time,

    You are able to discover how this was achieved, showing the 3D low poly modelling and the experience of Augmented Reality on
    youtube or dailymotion.

    The project was commissioned by the International brochure department of the Marketing and Publicity offices at Citroën, based on the technology of Total Immersion.

    I would be happy to discuss with you further how you may benefit from incorporating Augmented Reality technology into
    your marketing activities.

    Many thanks, and I look forward to hearing from.

    Yours sincerely

    Kind Regards,

  15. Beste Kris,

    Ik zou je willen uitnodigen voor een exclusief evenement, maar daarvoor heb ik wel je mailadres nodig, aangezien het niet de bedoeling is dat al je lezers afkomen op mijn uitnodiging ;-)

  17. Hello,

    I was wondering if you accept guest post for your blog. If you do, I would like to submit a few. I’m a recent college graduate, with an English major, looking to build out my portfolio.
