My thoughts on my personal technological revolution

The last couple of days there has been a discussion going on in the danish Twitterverse about a blog post where he was sad about the social media/technological revolution (in danish) -because it made him and his family sit in front of screens all the time. I think it raises some great subjects, so I […]

A storyliving web without give-aways?

I don’t really like give-aways and competitions. I think they are incredibly mainstream, and I don’t do mainstream very well. I do Storyliving very well indeed. I constantly deal with competitions in social media as a tool for content marketing, because competitions have become the commodity on the internet. That is the first thing you […]

Hi I think you ROCK – can I get you to do stuff for me for free?

The day before yesterday it happened again. I received an email that just oozed with “no pay for a lot of work” Aka. freeloading. Aka. work for free. It didn’t mention it exactly, but the mail wanted me to do a speaking gig and they said that it was “just 20-30 mins” that I needed […]

Now tell me again: you’re a social media expert because you call bullshit on other social media experts?

Social media experts are a hunted tribe these days. There’s not one morning where I check into my feeds where I don’t see a social media expert calling bullshit on other social media experts – defining them as the internet version of bad personal coaches. It amuses me, because it seems that these people are […]

Do something awesome with your workday

Sometimes, like this morning, I find myself looking restlessly towards my to-do lists and my goals and projects. There are things on them that I needed to do a couple of weeks ago. Today, I just can’t seem to get in the zone. Maybe it has something to do with my sick daughter is at […]

Can business literacy change the world?

Im in a process where I’m thinking a lot about the things I do business-wise, both because I’m trying to grow the tiger, having a partner in the company, but also because I am personally driven by doing good in the world. The biggest compliment I personally can get is people to say “nice initiative” […]

Passion lucrating on the long tail

These days I think the internet is a true wonderland – more than it has been before. As well as we see former geeky communities has gone more mainstream, we are seeing so many people actually starting to make it into very profitable subscription based services. Two of my favorites these days are Morningcoach.com and […]

Sustainable transitional web apps for the future

Ben Metcalfe wrote in a tweet a couple of weeks ago that “the way that twitter currently works doesn’t scale”. I think that’s my problem too. twitter doesn’t scale, not technically, and not as a mobile community either. solely on the web – it’s great – but I want the Twitter messages on my phone […]

Communities are getting used to social – what’s the next trend?

So at Lift07 there was nobody who said the word “blog” or “web 2.0” which to me is a very visible sign that “blog” and “web 2.0” is getting passé… slowly but firmly. It is not where the geeks are anymore.Does this mean that Web 2.0 is dead ? hardly – now all the companies […]

An undefined creativity manifesto

This is a manifesto I did the morning after the creativity workshop at Lift07 – warning, I was in flow when I did it… you cannot define the “spark of creativity” – sometimes it’s there sometimes it’s not – live with it creativity changes on basis of what culture you’re exposed to (and coming from) […]
