Announcing the “Blue Monster Show”

The Blue Monster Show: now this might become interesting. I’ve got as much information as you about what this is going to look like (that is after watching this video) and probably nobody really knows. To some point, that is part of what made the Blue Monster so interesting to me so far, the factContinue reading “Announcing the “Blue Monster Show””

The ‘Blue Monster’ auction

Microsoft colleague Steve Clayton is putting up 3 signed Blue Monster lithographs on auction. These were created and give by Hugh McLeod from gapingvoid. As I wasn’t amongst the 10 winners from a draw Steve did earlier I’ll go and place a bid on Ebay. All funds from the sale will go to charity soContinue reading “The ‘Blue Monster’ auction”

Social Media Forum: Social Currency

Yesterday I did a talk at the Social Media Forum 2011 in Brussels. It’s a topic that I’m interested in since 2006 or so, the time Hugh MacLeod started talking about “social objects”. You’ll find out why when you keep on reading. I started the presentation with a quote from Mark Twain I had foundContinue reading “Social Media Forum: Social Currency”

Le Web ‘09

Have to admit, I’m kinda sad. Today and tomorrow the best web/tech conference in Europe is on in Paris… and for the first time in 4 years it’ll be without me. Since I had a good part in the sponsorship of the conference by Microsoft, the fact that I’m not even going this year makesContinue reading “Le Web ‘09”

We had agreed with Hugh to try out something different than usual and everybody who stopped by while Hugh was thereContinue reading “Hugh at LeWeb 08”

Okay so you already know that the Blue Monster is coming to Paris, now I’m also happy to announce that Live Mesh is coming to LeWeb in Paris as well next week. And with a twist: “We’re pleased to announce that to celebrate LeWeb’08 and Microsoft’s official partnership with the event, we are providing attendeesContinue reading “Live Mesh in Paris”

Crowd Surfing

Some 2 months ago David Brain (CEO Edelman Europe) launched his book called ‘Crowd Surfing’ and I was able to get a copy for review. One of the biggest reasons I wanted to check out this book was that my buddy Steve Clayton was mentioned in it together with the Blue Monster story (just likeContinue reading “Crowd Surfing”

It’s TIME to change

Yesterday at the SIME conference in Stockholm I was part of a keynote session around the topic: “It’s TIME to change”. The whole theme of SIME is based around change and the DNA of change and in case of our session they had someone from the Telecom, Internet (me), Media and Entertainment sector to talkContinue reading “It’s TIME to change”
