...Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood"
The internet is a fast medium. Information is instantly accessible. It encourages you to do a lot of things at the same time. It can be a real source of inspiration. Also anything you write is instantly available to the whole on-line world. And this can be a source of trouble. If you're doing a lot of things in rapid succession, you sometimes forget to check for accuracy. You try to convey something, but because you forget to check, it ends up all wrong. If you're attentive (or lucky), you can minimise the damage and get your original intention across after all. If you're not..... Read my comments on This post on Liz Strauss' blog for an example... Liz's post itself by the way is great as well, so be sure to read that too.
Sometimes trying to find something through Google can be a frustrating event. Some search terms deliver more spam than useful results, making sifting through the list a tedious chore. Other times Google doesn't come up with any results at all, so its off to Yahoo, Answers and whatnot. Now what if users could cast votes on their search results like on Digg? Or even better: the search engine tracks the useful (=used!) links itself? Aftervote claims to do just that! So, is it time to say goodbye to Google? Well, maybe, but I'm not sure yet...
I had to change the settings for the comments to 'moderated', since there has been a lot of spam lately. So if you post a comment, please be a little patient since it will be placed in a moderation-queue and not show up immediately. I'll try to moderate as quickly as possible, and meanwhile find a way to stop the 'auto-spamming'. As soon as that is done, comments will be placed directly again. Thanks for your consideration!
Currently, everything on this website is 'handcoded' xhtml, with the exception of this blog. Due to a number of reasons, it will be transfered to a content management system in the near future (that will be release 5.0 then!). So now is the time to provide some feedback!
I've been making music since I was a child and working in music since 1996, but I originally studied public relations and (marketing-)communication and I still have an interest here, as well as in general business issues. So it was a nice discovery when I found Tom Peters' blog a short while ago. I didn't realise that it was already 25 years ago that "In search of Excellence" was published.
