Category — Personal Note
No I did not, but I’ve been strangely busy in also sorts of ‘real life’ stuff: birthdays, marriages, kids, dog, painting ….. So, time to write new blog posts has been very limited, but, in the reading I’ve done in the lost in-between minutes I’ve come across two things that I would quickly like to share.
The First is a quote that is funny and sticks:
“You can’t take something off the Internet. That’s like trying to take pee out of a swimming pool”
I think it does a great job of describing the problem that large corporates have in controlling the messaging around their brands and products. If ‘the word’ is out, and you don’t like it, there is nothing you can do about it. Well, there is one thing: face it, and join the conversation!
The second is a great image from Forrester: The New Marketing Funnel. No comments on this one, I will do a separate post on commenting this illustration (ok, one comment: I like it a lot!).

really, I did not quite already on this new attempt at a blog. I was in the Ardens in Belgium for a few days. A very nice cottage, with WIFI offering very good access to the Internet. But, I did decide to not spend (too much) time on online/marketing/blogging stuff, so, no posts ……
I wil pickup in the coming days, and try to reach a daily quota of at least one post again.

I have been using an HTC s710 Windows Mobile Smartphone since May 2007. I really love the concept of the sliding keyboard, which allows me to use this phone as a mobile email workstation. You can get quite fast at typing at this keyboard. Since November 2007 I am actually using two of them, one private and one from my employer.
The bad news: both of them suffer from random freezes, shutdowns and restarts. The first one started having this behavior after slightly more than a year, the second one after 5-6 months. Searching online reveals that I am not the only one suffering from this kind of behavior with this phone.
I got so frustrated with this that I decided (temporarily) to move back to my old Nokia 6230i. I am loosing a lot of functionality with this, but realibility is number 1 on my list of desired features …..
So, where do i go from here? Nokia N95, iPhone?, Nokia E71? Phone and Email are my two most important applications. I am using Emoze for pushing my email account, so this should be available on my future phone. Selection process has started Any tips and suggestions are more than welcome!

Het is niet de eerste keer dat ik dit ga proberen. De eerste keer is al heeeel lang terug, met Radio Userland van Dave Winer. Daarna nog verscheidene malen met andere oplossingen, waaronder Tridion, een tooltje van XS4all, Sharepoint, en al diverse malen met WordPress. Geen van die keren heeft stand gehouden, soms hield ik het een paar dagen vol, soms een paar weken. Dit keer heb ik wel gekozen voor een onderwerp waar een hoop over valt te lezen en dus ook te schrijven. Time will tell.
